Trees can help all of us live healthier and longer lives. Until a few years ago, the healing power of wood was a popular belief – now its benefits have been confirmed by medical science. Surrounding ourselves with pure wood works wonders for our bodies and souls.

This book is a reliable companion for everyone who wants to bring the rediscovered power of nature back into their lives. What type of wood has a positive impact on my body? How can I strengthen my immune system using homemade natural remedies? What can I do to sleep better? Where do I find good wood and how do I build a house that will keep the whole family healthy?
