A practicing consultant in medical herbalism and author of The Holistic Herbal (Findhorn Press), David Hoffmann presents a wide variety of natural treatments that can be used to alleviate stress-related complaints. He gives a clear and concise review of each of these therapies--from homeopathy, aromatherapy, and Bach Flower remedies to meditation, diet, herbalism, and the various methods of bodywork. Looking at stress and anxiety from a holistic perspective, Hoffmann explores the underlying causes of illness and offers guidance on specific herbs you can use to prevent and treat stress-related diseases from allergies and asthma to peptic ulcers and migraine headaches. The author devotes a chapter to anti-anxiety drugs and their effects, showing how herbs can facilitate withdrawal from tranquilizer dependence. A therapeutic index helps you choose the most beneficial herbal combinations and provides valuble information on dosages, preparation methods, and the effects of more than 40 stress-reducing herbs.

DAVID HOFFMANN lives and practices herbal medicine in California and is a member of The National Institute of Medical Herbalists.
