People have been using herbs to fight disease and promote wellness since prehistoric times. In recent years, science has gotten into the act and amassed quite a respectable body of evidence to support what healers the world over have been saying for centuries - herbal remedies work. Experiencing the heartbreak of psoriasis? A little dandelion root can clear it up. Grandpa's sciatica acting up again? St. John's Wort ought to put the spring back in his step. Got a bad case of poison ivy? Stop the itch with echinacea. Ginger tames the morning sickness beast - lavender and peppermint leaf also work well. Use licorice, chamomile, and wild yam root to pacify an irritable bowel.

If you're one of the millions of people who feel let down by conventional health care, or who've experienced unpleasant or harmful side effects from modern medicines, Herbal Remedies For Dummies is a book you'll want to have.
