An Elders' Herbal

An Elders' Herbal: Natural Techniques for Promoting Health and Vitality by David Hoffmann

David Hoffmann's complete guide to healthy aging addresses the unique concerns of people approaching fifty years of age and older.  A medical herbalist for sixteen years, the author has developed a wide variety of herbal treatments that focus on prevention and promote longevity.  He also offers specific herbal remedies for minor and more serious conditions, including hypertension, insomnia, bronchitis, varicose veins, and arthritis.  While these preparations are powerful healing agents, they produce none of the unpleasant and sometimes dangerous side effects often brought on by synthetic drugs.  By applying their natural healing properties, we can minimize our dependence on conventional medical treatments while shoring up and strengthening our immune systems.  The book's Materia Medica, listing more than 150 herbs by both common and Latin names, specifies which part of the plant to use, actions and indications, preparation methods, and recommended dosages.
