Family Guide to Health:

Visualize, Heal, Prevent

The Family Guide to Health’s innovative approach addresses concerns common among the general public with plain-language explanations complemented by state-of-the-art visuals. All at once an atlas of the human body, an encyclopedia of illnesses and ailments, a guide to healthy living and a first aid manual, it is the essential reference that every parent should keep on hand.

Our health and the health of our loved ones remain without question our greatest concerns. How do the different organs work? What are the mechanisms at the origin of cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, allergies, depression and sleep disorders? With unfailing attention to precision and clarity, the Family Guide to Health illustrates and explains the human body and more than 400 illnesses, from the most common to the rarest and from the most benign to the most serious. Also addressing general family health and well-being, with topics such as pregnancy, child development, nutrition, physical exercise and aging, it aims to provide professional insight and reliable information on all aspects of health.

With hundreds of attractive photos, startlingly realistic medical illustrations, easy-to-understand text and practical advice for staying healthy, the Family Guide to Health is the essential reference book when it comes to the well-being of the entire family.

An essential family reference for understanding illness prevention and treatment.
