New Book launch

Singapore’s first medical herbalist unveils the secrets to true health and well being in new book ~ From Leaf to Life.

Sebastian Liew shares principles of wellness in ‘From Leaf to Life’

SINGAPORE – For readers who say to themselves, “I’m not sick but I’m not well,” author Sebastian Liew’s new book, “From Leaf to Life: Unlock the Secrets to True Health” (published by iUniverse) is a must read. Liew, who is accredited by the National Herbalists Association of Australia as being the first Singaporean medical herbalist, has known many people who are on a litany of medications and undergo perpetual health screenings. Yet they are still not functional: they lack energy and passion as well as the optimal physiological functioning for them to lead purposeful and loving lives. “In other words, most people are not happy in body, mind and spirit,” says Liew.

“Yet the pursuit of happiness is the cause of unhappiness,” he continues. “Rather, what we should be pursuing is true health in our physical body, mind and our soul, not separately but simultaneously. Happiness is just a side effect of the realization of true health. Liew believes that with true health, one achieves not only functional wellness in body, mind and soul but potentially reduces personal health care cost in the long term.
Liew relies on his years of experience healing others through naturopathic phytotherapy at The Sebastian Liew Center. “From Leaf to Life” contains vital principles and therapies derived from the best of both Asian and European perspectives to empower readers to take charge of their healing, and learn to treat and prevent cancer, heart diseases, depression and other diseases through drug-free principles. “Help yourself – restore inner peace, look and feel 20 years younger, triumph over fear and anxiety, and discover your true self,” he says.
“From Leaf to Life” offers fundamental holistic solutions for personal and ecological well-being, in an “increasingly toxic, stressful, fragmented and perceived meaningless society.”
