This full-color, 300+ page approachable book introduces natural self-care and herbalism from a body system approach within a western herbalism framework. An antacid or an aspirin may soothe your pain, but it doesn't cure the cause of your symptoms. Headaches, indigestion, fatigue, allergies, anxiety, eczema, high blood pressure, and other conditions are clues to a deeper imbalance in your body, and learning to read those clues is a key step in maintaining optimal health. Herbalist Maria Noël Groves shows you how to read your body's signals and support your own wellness with herbal remedies and other natural treatments. You'll learn how each of your major body systems -- respiratory, digestive, immune, nervous, memory, reproductive, circulatory, and more -- optimally functions, and you'll discover how to use natural remedies to nourish and repair problem areas, restore lost vitality, support your body as a whole, and prevent future problems. The book covers herbal actions as well as whole foods nutrition and lifestyle support for common conditions. Groves includes in-depth instructions, with step-by-step photographs, for making your own herbal remedies, as well as expert guidance on buying and effectively using commercial preparations.
