Description
Can echinacea really stave off a cold? Is ginseng really good for sexual potency? And can St. John's wort really ward off depression? Certain cultures around the world have long relied on nature's bounty to cure ailments and boost health and well-being in general, and in the west such practices have exploded in the past few years. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Herbal Remedies is a comprehensive beginner's guide to the vast, varied range of herbs and other natural agents that are thought to do everything from curing the common cold to preventing cancer to increasing fertility. Hundreds of herbs are listed along with their scientific names, both historic and current uses, and dosing suggestions. For anyone curious about the curative powers of the world's weeds -- some of which might even be in their own backyards -- The Complete Idiot's Guide to Herbal Remedies is an essential compendium in this age of alternative and supplementary medicine.
