Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The popularity of herbal medicine has exploded during the past decade, with herbal remedies becoming increasingly available in such conventional outlets as drugstores and even supermarkets. Prescription for Herbal Healing brings to herbal medicine the same in-depth, easy-to-understand information and accessible style that Prescription for Nutritional Healing successfully brought to diet and nutritional supplements.

This book is divided into three parts for easy reference. Part I discusses the basic principles of herbal medicine and outlines the properties and characteristics of some one hundred sixty single herbs and sixty herbal combination formulas. Part II describes more than one hundred fifty common disorders, conveniently arranged in alphabetical order from acne to yeast infection, and names the herbal therapies that can be used in the treatment of those conditions. Part III is a guide to using various kinds of herbal and other alternative therapies. In addition, it includes self-diagnostic tests and boxed insets throughout, which offer detailed information on a wide variety of topics.

Complete coverage of Chinese and Ayurvedic herbs make this volume entirely comprehensive, and thorough scientific references lend it an authority not found in any other herbal book. Prescription for Herbal Healing is the definitive herbal resource and is a necessity for any health-conscious consumer.

Synopsis:

This guide presents current research and theories on herbal treatment and prevention for ailments and disease including addiction, attention deficit disorder, side effects of cancer treatment, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, impotence, menopause, PMS, rheumatoid arthritis, obesity and more.

Synopsis:

The long-awaited companion to "Prescription for Nutritional Healing" is a definitive herbal resource with A-to-Z information on hundreds of of common disorders and their herbal remedies.
