Adaptogens 8090012   $ 43.00
Product Image Adaptogens: Herbs for Strength, Stamina, and Stress Relief:We all deal with stress every day, and every day our bodies strive to adapt and stay balanced and healthy. In "Adaptogens", authors, David Winston and Steven Maimes, provide a comprehensive look into adaptogens, non-toxic herbs such as ginseng, eleuthero, and liquorice, that produce a defensive response to stress in our bodies. Formerly known as rejuvenating herbs or tonics, adaptogens help the body to "adapt" to the many influences it encounters. They increase stamina and counter the normal effects of aging and, thus, are becoming important tools in sports medicine and in the prevention and treatment of chronic fatigue and other stress-related disorders. This work reveals how adaptogens increase the body's resistance to adverse influences and provides a history of the use of these herbal remedies and the actions, properties, preparation, and dosage for each herb. Winston and Maimes present the historical uses of these herbal remedies in India, Russia, China, and the Americas and explain how they work and why they are so effective at combating stress-induced illness. Monographs for each adaptogen also present the latest scientific research and include the origin, traditional use, actions, properties, preparation, and dosage for each herb

Antibiotic Alternative 1104079   $ 34.00
Product Image Antibiotic Alternative: the Natural Guide to Fighting Infection and Maintaining A Healthy Immune System: - Avoid the dangerous overuse of antibiotics by using natural herbal remedies to strengthen your own immune defenses. Protect yourself and your family from the misuse of antibiotics. Learn how to control and overcome infections with natural remedies.Maintain a vibrant and healthy immune system without antibiotic dependency. When antibiotics were discovered they were hailed as the magic bullet that would put an end to the threat of infectious disease. In fact, in 1969 the U.S. Surgeon General stated that "the war against infectious disease has been won." But in the last fifteen years we have faced an alarming increase in cases of bacterial infections that will not respond to antibiotics. What is more, the use of antibiotics in agricultural feeds and the widespread overprescription of antibiotics has deepened the threat of resistant bacteria to potentially epidemic proportions. Even when appropriately prescribed, antibiotics weaken the immune system by altering the body's natural bacterial balance. While antibiotics have their place in treating acute life-threatening conditions, "The Antibiotic Alternative" shows how the best defense against infectious disease is to strengthen your own immune system. With advice on stress management and diet and complete monographs of a dozen readily available herbs, Dr. Jones shows you how to ward off infectious disease naturally without antibiotic overdependence. She provides directions for making herbal teas, salves, and tinctures and includes specific herbal recommendations for more than twenty common ailments ranging from acne to wound treatment.

Cannabis - The story of the weed that rocked the world 1006006   $ 29.00

This revised, paperback edition of the successful "Cannabis" is an informative and entertaining guide to the history of 'weed'. Here one will find a story - from ancient myths and legends to today's on-going controversies - that stretches over 12,000 years; its many uses - spiritual, medicinal and recreational - in countries all round the globe; the laws that have tried to suppress it; and the industry, both 'professional' and quite literally 'homegrown' that brings the weed to its millions of consumers. In addition, readers will discover just what makes smokers 'high' and the way cannabis is being rediscovered as a vital painkiller for such diseases as cancer, arthritis and multiple sclerosis; it lays out the great debate: is cannabis really a 'gateway drug', leading users to heroin and crack; and on a lighter note there are cannabis recipes, the wide-ranging slang of cannabis and for those who've always wondered, a step-by-step guide to rolling a 'joint'.

Cunninghams Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs 9030029   $ 30.00
Product Image Do you work magic with herbs? Do you use them in spells, for talismans or simply use their innate powers? If you don't have Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs, you need to get it right away. This book has become a classic in its field. Paul Beyerl, a respected author on herbs calls it "…an essential reference book by students of herbalism and magick alike … Scott's personable charm touches every page… I highly recommend this book." And Jeanne Rose, famous author of books on herbs and developer of an herbal course says "I love books like this … It is accessible, easy to read, and with its encompassing index (all too often neglected), simple to use as well." Over 200,000 people already have this book and use it frequently. In this edition of the book (it's expanded and revised on the 15th anniversary of original publication) you will find the magical properties and folklore of over 400 herbs! You'll also find lists of herbs based on their magical powers, their genders, their planetary rulers, and more. Perhaps the most important list is the folk name cross-reference. With that information, when a recipe calls for "bramble, " you'll know it needs blackberry. Or if the magic calls for "enebro," you'll know you that is juniper. The main part of this book is the listings of the herbs. Each one includes names, associations, and magical attributions. Violets can be used for protection, luck, love, and more. Primrose is for protection and love. Garlic is for protection, healing, exorcism, lust, and prevention of theft. This book is considered a classic. It is probably consulted more than any other book on this subject. If you want to learn the secrets of magical herbs, this book is a must! From the Publisher Some time ago I started to get into programming computers. There are books that teach programming languages. There are others that simply tell you what the commands are. They don't teach you how to program, but you can use the information to make your programs work. In a sense, programming books don't teach programming. In a similar way, Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs doesn't teach you how to do spells (although it does give a brief outline so you can use this without any other book). What it does do is give you all the information you need to make your spells, talismans, amulets, and rituals work better. This book has become a classic in its field. Every time I visit an occult shop that sells herbs, I look to see what books they use as resources. Inevitably, this book is there, usually quite beaten up from constant use. The pros use it and so do over 200,000 people like you. The cross-referenced index of folk names could be a book by itself. Did you know that if a magical spell calls for "bats' wings" you should use holly? Or did you know that if a magical recipe called for "lapstones" you should use potato? If you had this book you would know all that and more. You'd also learn that ragweed can be used for courage; lily of the valley can enhance mental powers and happiness; and chrysanthemums can be used for protection. This book by Scott Cunningham is truly encyclopedic. It gives information on over 400 herbs in an easy-to-use format that makes working with the book clear and simple. If you do any sort of magic with herbs, or if you are interested in folklore, this is a book you must have.

Encyclopedia of Herbal Medicine 5110100   $ 100.00
Product Image Encyclopedia Of Herbal Medicine: The Definitive Home Reference Guide To 550 Key Herbs With All Their Uses. This is the second edition of Chevallier's 'The Encyclopedia of Medicinal Plants'. Though the title has changed, the format and contents are substantially the same. This second edition has been revised to reflect the latest herbal research and includes some herbs not mentioned in the earlier book, such as cat's claw. It also addresses the issues of quality control and the safe use of herbal remedies. But as with the original, initial and final chapters address the development of herbal medicine, world herbal traditions, and home remedies. Including alphabetical listing by Latin name of 550 of the most commonly used individual herbs. One hundred key plants are given a full-page spread outlining their habitat and cultivation, related species, key constituents and actions, research, traditional and current uses, parts used, key preparations, and self-help uses. In a separate alphabetical list, an additional 450 plants are covered in less detail. A fine bibliography and index complete the book. As with all DK publications, the encyclopedia is lavishly illustrated with high-quality color captioned photographs and focus boxes. Rodale's Illustrated Encyclopedia of Herbs addresses briefly the medicinal uses of the listed herbs, there is a much stronger emphasis on the horticultural and culinary aspects. Deni Bown's Encyclopedia of Herbs and Their Uses is more comprehensive, covering over 1000 herbs, but has less information regarding their medicinal use. Therefore, the new Chevallier volume remains a top choice for a library reference on the medicinal use of herbs for the public.

Product Image Wild & Weedy Apothecary: An A to Z Book of Herbal Concoctions, Recipes & Remedies, Practical Know-How & Food for the Soul: Herbalist Shababy's well-considered alphabetic valentine to natural healing is an informative guide to the benefits and applications of everything from apples to "Zip," a hearty garlic tonic said to ward off colds and flu. Readers will be caught up by Shababy's enthusiasm while she divulges all sorts of trivia and history: juniper was once burned in hospital rooms to destroy airborne fungi; lavender can aid and stimulate circulation when added to a bath; PMS symptoms can be treated with catnip tea. Readers will also learn how to make their own bath salts and create their own herbal shampoo. Even if readers take a pass on saying a prayer of thanks to plants before harvesting, or fail to see immediate results when using anise in a pillowcase to ward off bad dreams, readers will likely find a use for recipes such as Manicotti Crepes, homemade blackberry brandy, spinach dip, and a simple fruit pie with a coconut cream cheese crust. Generous with her sources and references, Shababy's voluminous guide will help armchair naturalists and horticulturalists get the most out of nature's bounty without risking harm to themselves or the environment. Just outside your doorstep or kitchen window, hidden beneath a tall pine tree or twining through porch latticework, a wild and weedy apothecary waits to be discovered. Herbalist Doreen Shababy shares her deep, abiding love for the earth and its gifts in this collection of herbal wisdom that represents a lifetime of work in the forest, field, and kitchen. This herbalism guidebook is jam-packed with dozens of tasty recipes and natural remedies, including Glorious Garlic and Artichoke Dip, Sunny Oatmeal Crepes, Candied Catnip Leaves, Lavender Lemonade, Roseberry Tea, Garlic Tonic, Parsnip Hair Conditioner, and Dream Charms made with Mugwort. A sampling of the herbal lore, legend, and instruction found within these pages: The difference between sweet-faced flowers and flowers with attitude How to assemble a well-stocked pantry - The importance of gratitude Plant-spirit communication basics - How to use local wild herbs How to make poultices, teas, tinctures, balms, and extracts
