Bill Rawls
The Cellular Wellness Solution
The Cellular Wellness Solution delivers a new look at the critical role that healthy cells play in avoiding chronic illness as we age. Dr. Rawls shares how overcoming his own battle with chronic illness revealed the natural and powerful solution—herbal therapy—and why it is key for defending against microbes. Readers will better understand the simple but essential role cells play in our health and learn how supporting cells with herbal phytochemicals every day is one of the most powerful defenses against illness and the best bet for living well, staying well and aging well. Packed with science-backed and actionable recommendations for incorporating herbs and vital habits into daily life, The Cellular Wellness Solution is poised to take herbal health solutions into the mainstream in a way not seen to date.
“Though I’ve had to make some compromises to maintain good health,” Rawls notes in a concluding chapter to this exhaustive introduction to the practice and benefits of using herbal phytochemicals to cultivate wellness, “somehow they don’t feel like compromises.” The Cellular Wellness Solution lays out, with clarity and persuasive power, the health benefits of herbs, herbal supplements, and the “powerhouse” properties of phytochemicals that, due to contemporary food processing that emphasizes the production of calories over all else, tend to be lacking in American diets. In the opening pages, Rawls recounts his astonished discovery of herbs’ power, relieving aches, sleeplessness, gastrointestinal issues, and a once-persistent brain fog, all issues that traditional western medicine had failed to address. The rest of the book finds him guiding readers through his discovery, with a doctor’s eye for the science—and the practical results.

Rawls makes the case that herbs and herbal supplements like slippery elm and reishi can, when combined with a balanced lifestyle that involves fresh foods and regular physical activity, bolster well-being in many areas without drug-like effects, including the maintenance of blood sugar levels, the reduction of menopause symptoms, and improvements of gut, prostrate, bone, and skin health. Plant phytochemicals, he notes, are fundamentally non-nutritive, meaning they aren’t required for cells to survive, though they relieve cellular stress while offering protection from a host of dangers, among them insects and microbes.

Rawls proves an appealing guide, laying out the facts with clarity and, for all this lengthy guide’s thoroughness, a welcome sense of the bottom line: what readers want to know to improve their own health. Appendices, bulleted chapter summaries, and a conversational tone make the material manageable, and he offers full chapters on common pressing health concerns and the maintenance of a balanced, healthy lifestyle. Readers interested in the herbal life will find this a valuable resource.

Takeaway: A thorough yet inviting introduction to the health benefits of herbs and herbal supplements.
