Now Andrew Weil, MD—our most trusted authority on alternative healing approaches—invites you to attend his first comprehensive one-on-one audio learning course with Dr. Andrew Weil's Guide to Optimum Health.

On this complete nine-hour curriculum, Dr. Weil personally helps you take charge of your total well-being with proven, natural solutions for boosting your body's self-healing function, building energy, and overcoming everyday health challenges. You'll learn the same practical approach taught by Dr. Weil at his sought-after live workshops—at your own pace, at a fraction of the regular cost.
