Publisher Comments:

"Lively, fun to read and filled with gems of wisdom-- a treasure of information from a man who knows as much as anyone in the world about medicinal plants."

--Jean Carper, best-selling author of Food-- Your Miracle Medicine and Miracle Cures

The Green Pharmacy

Thousands of safe, natural remedies lie untapped in jungles, forests and herbal gardens throughout the world. Now America's foremost authority on medicinal plants and herbs shares his knowledge of these hidden reserves of healing power.

* For Arthritis: A new, all-natural remedy that can cut pain in half.

* For Back Pain: A fruit that has anti-inflammatory properties to produce long-term relief.

* For Your Heart: An herb that opens up clogged arteries and lowers blood pressure, with none of the side effects of prescription drugs.

* For High Cholesterol: A tasty grain that has three times more cholesterol-lowering power than oat bran.

* For Migraines: An herb that has the power to eliminate the blurred vision and debilitating pain of these monster headaches.

* For Mood Swings: A common food that shares the power of Prozac to boost the brain's level of "feel-good" serotonin.

* For Osteoporosis: A prime plant source of calcium that vastly enhances protection against bone depletion.

* For Wrinkles: An herbal lotion that has the skin-clearing, wrinkle-reversing power of alpha hydroxy acid but costs only pennies.

And much more-- over 120 conditions in all!

"The Green Pharmacy is a tour de force by the world's leading authority on the herbal healing traditions...a treasure house of practical advice for the newcomer and pearls of wisdom for the herbal practitioner."

--Joseph E. Pizzorno, N.D., president of Bastyr University, Seattle, author of Total Wellness and co-author of Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine

Synopsis:

The Green Pharmacy

Many diseased and conditions for which we turn to modern medicine can also be treated naturally with healing herbs, medicinal food, other natural remedies--and these treatments can be safer, less expensive and possibly even more effective than traditional methods. Let Dr. James Duke, the world's leading authority on healing herbs, leads you through the vast world of natural remedies--from Anise for Asthma to Violet for Varicose Veins, and everything in between. With just a few trips to the health-food store, the supermarket, or your own backyard--and with the help of Dr. Duke--you'll have everything you need to create your own Natural Medicine Cabinet.

About the Author

He retired from the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 1995, after serving as chief of the Medicinal Plant Resources Laboratory. He remains active in ReNuPeru, a medicinal herb garden in the Peruvian Amazon that's maintained by the Amazon Center for Environmental Education and Research. His own garden is on a 6-acre farmette in Fulton, Maryland, where he lives with his wife, Peggy.
