9781579541248: The Green Pharmacy: New Discoveries in Herbal Remedies for Common Diseases and Conditions from the World's Foremost Authority on Healing Herbs

Thousands of safe, natural remedies lie untapped in jungles, forests and herbal gardens throughout the world. Now, in Green Pharmacy by James A. Duke (with illustrations by Peggy Kessler Duke), 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!

Review:

There's still a lot to learn about the healing power of plants, James Duke points out, but what we do know is already prodigious. Much of that knowledge is gathered in The Green Pharmacy, an A-to-Z guide to that relies on plant-based medicines to cure what ails us. Between the listings, Duke crams personal anecdotes from a lifetime of studying herbs, berries, and bark. For example, he relates how he worried about telling a pregnant niece that ginger could help alleviate her morning sickness because he'd learned from a pharmacologist that ginger could also induce miscarriage. Then he solved the mystery: he'd recommended ginger tea, which contains about 250 milligrams of ginger. The Chinese, he learned, use about 80 times that much to end pregnancies--another testimony to the amazing versatility of these natural medicines.

From the Publisher:

"The Green Pharmacy is full of helpful, practical information about using plants as medicines. I plan to consult it often." --Andrew Weil, M.D., Director of the Program in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, and author of Spontaneous Healing

"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, author of Miracle Cures
