Description

Here's the go-to herbal sourcebook that women can reference throughout every age and stage of their lives, with remedies using common herbs and plants, to heal and support body, mind, and spirit.

Plant medicines are a woman's ally to achieve optimal health; they bring balance and nourishment to daily life and can reduce or eliminate physical and emotional distress symptoms. They can also provide alternatives to many pharmaceuticals. Dr. Leslie Korn brings over 40 years of experience in numerous herbal traditions—and as a healer in several modalities—into this book of timeless wisdom that can be passed down in the family for generations and shared with friends.

The book is organized by disease or discomfort in order to help the reader search easily for the herbal support they may need. Includes herbal treatments for sleep disorders, menstrual issues, autoimmune conditions, digestive issues, anxiety, fertility, childbirth and post-partum recovery, skin ailments, and much more—including common discomforts that affect children.
