Review:

"The truth is that all herbs are not for all people all of the time," writes Darlena L'Orange, an herbalist/acupuncturist/anthropologist. While cautioning against following the herbal fad-of-the-month, she describes all of the natural substances known to help humans in every area of health and wellness, from alleviating colds to fighting off anorexia. The depth of detail in Herbal Healing Secrets of the Orient is astonishing. It encompasses Eastern medical wisdom (why liver problems lead to both excess anger and "doormat" personalities, for example); how-to information (dendrobium, from a tree-dwelling orchid, helps relieve lower-back pain and improve vision); and recipes galore (including one to help alleviate gas caused by switching to a plant-based diet).

About the Author:
