In a society hooked on the idea of better living through chemicals, the mere mention of herbal tonics is likely to be shouted down as another laughable example of snake oil quackery. But, as many contemporary medical practices are found to be ineffective, or even harmful, more and more people are turning to ancient natural remedies. For those interested in exploring the healing properties of herbs, this thorough book could prove an invaluable guide. Indeed, the introduction states the author's intention of providing, "a worry-free method for handling life's daily challenges to health and happiness." Who could ask for more? Handsomely bound in hardcover, Herbal Tonic Therapies is separated into comprehensive chapters on the various systems of the body, describing favorable tonics for each and including detailed information on the unlikely possibility of deleterious side effects. The book is scholarly, but written with the layperson in mind, offering a complete guide to medicinal alternatives for innumerable health problems from the most common cold to serious, life-threatening diseases. --George LaneyAbout the Author:
