African Health Secrets

(First Edition)
By Kukuwa Kyereboah-Nuamah

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-62661-649-3, 106 pages


I think this book is filled with all the things that we'd hear our body telling us if we could hear past the caffeine buzz, obnoxious schedules, and over-indulgence of our culture today. The African health secrets from Ms. Kukuwa's own childhood and lifelong experience are inspiring and should become part of anyone's daily routine who really wants to feel alive and well!— Caitlin O., student

Throughout life we continuously are learning how to balance ourselves to be the best we can be. This book capitalizes on the importance of a balanced lifestyle. By dedicating to a lifestyle change, one can reach the goal of overall health.— Diana B., student

African Health Secrets teaches readers that the way they treat their bodies influences their physical health and well-being, and even their school lives. The book presents natural ways to achieve health and wellness, and shows readers how to apply these to their lives through healthy diet choices and the discipline of dance.

It gives guidance about the proper way to eat and drink naturally, to enable the body to function correctly. It also addresses how nature affects the body, and how to practice self-care through a simpler, organic lifestyle.

The ten chapters of the book include information on African home remedies, nutrition and exercise, the benefits of juicing, weight issues, and practical tips and advice for improving health. The material also reframes good eating habits, focusing on positive lifestyle choices, rather than dieting.

African Health Secrets offers a refreshing approach that can be used in any course on health, nutrition, and wellness.
