HERBAL DEFENSE makes the latest information on botanical medicine and natural healing interesting and useful. To give you power over your health, the book will show how to reduce risks, prevent disease, enhance energy, and naturally treat a variety of common ailments using herbs and foods. It explodes common myths about herbs, and includes inspirational case studies, a historical perspective on medicine, resources, recipes and more. It's packed with historical, traditional, scientific, and anecdotal information on over 350 herbs for home use.

Herbal Defense goes far beyond mainstream generalities (this isn't the same old endlessly recycled echinacea/ginseng/garlic tidbits). You'll become a powerful, discerning, sophisticated and self-sufficient consumer of health care. You'll learn to evaluate, obtain and use botanicals not only to remedy illness, but to prevent it and build outstanding health. Picking up where Robyn Landis' bestselling first book, BodyFueling®, left off, Herbal Defense will inspire you to choose a healthy life--and teach you how. Just a taste of what you will learn:

gentle yet reliable, results-producing strategies to support your body's own self-healing mechanisms.
how to help your body fight infection and degeneration on its own
how to boost your body's own healing, instead of depending on external sources for superficial relief.
how to use herbs and foods to build a future of health, and tip the odds against disease and degeneration in your favor.
how herbs can make the immune system stronger than many of its foes.
how to tell hype from helpful information, and distinguish issues that tend to get tangled (e.g., stimulants, "diet aids" and aphrodisiacs have nothing to do with responsible, educated, therapeutic/medicinal uses).

 Why try herbs?

Every year there are ten million negative drug reactions in the U.S alone, and 600,000 victims wind up in hospitals. All around the rest of the world, people use herbs for health and healing, as they always have-and herbs account for less than 1 percent of all toxic reactions to medicines worldwide). So why not try the natural route? HERBAL DEFENSE will show you how gentle plant substances can help keep you stronger, healthier and more energetic than you dreamed possible--and truly heal illness and injury.

From age-old wisdom to late-breaking discoveries, HERBAL DEFENSE is packed with historical and scientific information on over 1,000 herbs for home use, giving you the control to steer your own health destiny. Use wisdom from around the world to help yourself-with solutions to problems such as:

VIRUSES. The mild Chinese herb astragalus is a remarkable cold preventive--and the spicy, aromatic cubeb berry not only builds immunity but relieves coughs, strengthens lung tissue, energizes and heals asthma long-term.
HEADACHE: Ginger, feverfew and rosemary are standout migraine relievers; peppermint oil dabbed on temples, scalp and neck can relieve tension headaches.
INSOMNIA: Valerian, hops, and scullcap leaf are just a few of the botanicals that can safely transport you to slumber--without risk of dependency.
FATIGUE: Fo-ti, licorice root and eleuthero are only a handful of the herbs that help restore your body's own energy production--with no overstimulation or side effects.
EAR INFECTIONS: Discover why a few drops of mullein oil, garlic oil or onion juice in the ear are usually more effective than antibiotics--not to mention healthier and cheaper.
HAY FEVER: Freeze-dried nettles offer quick and completely natural elimination of symptoms with no side effects. (Other herbs, used over time, can make your immune system too confident to overreact to pollen at all!)
ULCER: Forget toxic drugs that cause rebound effects and mask symptoms--cabbage juice and licorice root have proven far more effective.
ARTHRITIS: You don't have to "just live with it"--turmeric root, guggul, boswellia and ginger are among many natural remedies that relieve pain by healing the problem.
DIABETES: Learn why onions, fenugreek seed and bittermelon, among others, are excellent natural blood sugar control remedies!
