POTSDAM -- Paula Youmell of Hands On Health Holistic Healing has a new book, Hands-On Health, that focuses on healing body, mind, and spirit.

Youmell, a registered nurse, health and physical education teachers and holistic health coach, has trained in many areas of healing, including natural health, herbs, reiki, yoga, holistic coaching, and vitalism.

Hands-On Health, the book and business, seek to entice people to eat healthier, move about more frequently, “get outside into the natural world we are inherently a part of, sleep better; and take good, wholesome, natural care of your body, mind, and soul,” Youmell says.

The subtitle of the book is “Take Your Vibrant, Whole Health back Into Your Healing Hands.”

The book is available through Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, and BalboaPress.com, but Youmell is encouraging people to use the ISBN number (978-1-45256-590-3) and order through a local bookstore, keeping local businesses like hers healthy, too.

“Proceeds from this book will be used to support my favorite, local non-profits, Little River Community School (www.littleriverschool.org), GardenShare (www.gardenshare.org), and The Local Living Venture (www.sustainablelivingproject.net),” the author says, because they support “healthy, happy kids who learn through love, whole foods grown locally, rural and sustainable living skills for a better community -- micro and macro!”
