The Wellness Garden by Shauna Coronado is filled with tips and guidance I wish I’d received when I was diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). Changing my diet, taking time to rest and balancing that with exercise are things, together with my mum and homeopath, I worked out as I went along. This book offers great advice on how to shortcut the experimentation and get results quicker. It is full of lovely information on the practicalities of growing our own organic veggie patches and what makes a great veggie. All the advice is given from a place of having walked the journey which makes the book feel authentic and the tasks feel doable. It’s a four out five on the en-JOY-meant scale.
