• Medicinal properties
• History of use by rainforest inhabitants
• Current uses around the world and in herbal medicine today
• Methods of preparation
• Natural chemicals
• Summaries of scientific research
• And more, such as helpful tables, illustrations, and recipes for herbal remedies
From the age-old healing practices of shamans to current scientific research, this wealth of ancient and modern knowledge is now available in one source for health-conscious consumers. This unique book is the one health guide you will reach for again and again.
