Summary

Summary

A simple, straightforward approach to herbal medicine, this fully illustrated volume features handy sections organized both by illness or body trouble and by herb. The herb directory has 35 herbs and explains the effects of each, including how it works, what to use it for, and cautions against certain uses. This clear guide discusses how herbs can be a part of health maintenance as medicines and nutrients, and how they have been helping people overcome physical and emotional aches and pains for centuries.
