Pip Waller – Deeply Holistic A Guide to Intuitive Self-Care – Know Your Body, Live Consciously, and NurtureYour
This user-friendly guide gives straightforward and practical advice to anyone who wants a holistic approach to taking care of themselves naturally. Following the traditional framework of an anatomy book that explains each body system chapter-by-chapter, Pip Waller—an experienced practitioner and teacher—provides fundamental information and tips about exercise, diet, supplements, understanding and caring for your emotional and mental health, naturopathic principles from various traditions, and simple yet effective ways of working with spiritual energy. Based on the premise that an underlying vital force—which needs to be in balance for health to be fully present—animates all life, this book is designed to support and promote our inherent tendency toward wholeness and equilibrium. Each chapter includes fun recipes to enhance health and well-being.
“Pip Waller addresses some of the most important questions raised in modern herbal practice. Unlike biomedicine, we approach the body by systems because this is what is suited to a nature-based, holistic approach. Holism doesn’t look at the molecular lesion first, but sees it as the end result. Holism also starts with self-care and proceeds to professional care. Pip Waller addresses both levels of proficiency in a systems-based model, ably following up on her earlier book, Holistic Anatomy. I heartily recommend.”
—Matthew Wood, author of The Book of Herbal Wisdom and The Earthwise Herbal
“What a feat! [Waller] writes such a warm, comprehensive, and contemporary guide to living healthily in the widest sense, embracing a wonderfully insightful and compassionate view of our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual selves. I thoroughly recommend this book to accompany anyone on a journey to health and self-healing.”
—Anne McIntyre, fellow of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists, member of the Ayurvedic Practitioners’ Association, and author of The Ayurveda Bible
“Deeply Holistic is a highly engaging and well-written book on how we as human beings function. I especially like how Pip has interwoven the self-care element, which is clearly laid out and easily accessible. I shall certainly be dipping into this book with my massage and anatomy and physiology students and clients. I would highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in human health and happiness”
—Celine Samson, founder of Tonic Mind Body
“Deeply Holistic is a map to optimal health and well-being where you are the explorer. It is filled with fabulous recipes and fun exercises that nourish the body, mind, and spirit.”
—Lucy Harmer, Celtic Shamanic High Priestess and author of Discover Your Spirit Animal: The Wisdom of the Shamans and Shamanic Astrology: Understanding Your Spirit Animal Sign
“This is a much-needed manual for holistic living! It is one of the few books I’ve read that is genuinely holistic and very balanced in its orientation—drawing from both scientific understanding and traditional wisdom while free of the many fads that are popular in the health literature these days. I will definitely be recommending Deeply Holistic to my clients and students.”
—Michael Vertolli, director of the Living Earth School of Herbalism
“Reading Deeply Holistic is an awe-inspiring, spiritual experience. Waller not only inspires the genuine desire to tend, heal, and care for the self—what a beautiful gift —but also provides the necessary tools to take vibrant health into your own hands.”
—Savannah Clayton, holistic health coach at Nourish Shakti
“Pip Waller’s previous book, Holistic Anatomy, filled a valuable gap between the world of the anatomist and the world of the therapist; this equally important book takes these themes one stage further with practical advice around holistic health and wellbeing for practitioner and student alike. It’s a book I will be recommending to my students.”
—Jessica Garbett, owner of Yinspire Yoga
“A deep and gracious dive into body-mind-spirit healing. Read, implement, and
transform yourself back to whole.”
—Paula Youmell, RN, Wise Woman Nurse®, author of Hands on
Health and coauthor of Weaving Healing Wisdom

More information about Lifestyle:
Lifestyle is the interests, opinions, behaviours, and behavioural orientations of an individual, group, or culture.
The term was introduced by Austrian psychologist Alfred Adler with the meaning of “a person’s basic character as established early in childhood”.
For example, in his 1929 book “The Case of Miss R.”. The broader sense of lifestyle as a “way or style of living” has been documented since 1961.
Lifestyle is a combination of determining intangible or tangible factors.
Tangible factors relate specifically to demographic variables, i.e. an individual’s demographic profile,
whereas intangible factors concern the psychological aspects of an individual such as personal values, preferences, and outlooks.
A rural environment has different lifestyles compared to an urban metropolis.
Location is important even within an urban scope.
The nature of the neighborhood in which a person resides affects the set of lifestyles available
to that person due to differences between various neighborhoods’ degrees of affluence and proximity to natural and cultural environments.
For example, in areas near the sea, a surf culture or lifestyle can often be present.

More information about Self Help:
Self-help or self-improvement is a self-guided improvement—economically, intellectually, or emotionally—often with a substantial psychological basis.
Many different self-help group programs exist, each with its own focus, techniques, associated beliefs, proponents and in some cases, leaders.
Concepts and terms originating in self-help culture and Twelve-Step culture, such as recovery, dysfunctional families, and codependency have become firmly integrated in mainstream language.
Self-help often utilizes publicly available information or support groups, on the Internet as well as in person, where people in similar situations join together.
From early examples in self-driven legal practice and home-spun advice, the connotations of the word have spread and often apply particularly to education, business,
psychology and psychotherapy, commonly distributed through the popular genre of self-help books.
According to the APA Dictionary of Psychology, potential benefits of self-help groups that professionals may not be able to provide include friendship,
emotional support, experiential knowledge, identity, meaningful roles, and a sense of belonging.
