Plant medicines are a woman's ally to achieve optimal health; they bring balance and nourishment to daily life and can reduce or eliminate symptoms of physical and emotional distress. They can also provide alternatives to many pharmaceuticals. This go-to herbal sourcebook helps women thrive at every age and stage of their lives, with remedies using common herbs and plants to support a healthy body, mind, and spirit.

Organized by disease or discomfort, this book is an essential guide to help women find the herbal support they need. Treatments for sleep disorders, menstrual issues, autoimmune conditions, anxiety, fertility, post-partum recovery, skin ailments, and more, can be found and prepared with ease. Herbal guidance for rites of passage or moments of community are provided, and the inclusion of psychoactive herbs, protocol for end-of life care, and extensive resources round out the coverage—including common discomforts that affect children. Dr. Leslie Korn brings over 40 years of experience in numerous herbal traditions and healing modalities to Natural Woman, offering timeless wisdom that can be shared with friends and passed down in the family for generations.

“Since moving to the jungle of western Mexico as a young woman, Dr. Leslie Korn has spent over four decades studying the use of herbs by indigenous healers. Her new book, Natural Woman, is an accessible and comprehensive resource that shows how herbs support health, heal physical, emotional, and spiritual illness, and add delight and nourishment to our food. The reader-friendly organization of the book allows easy access to specific health conditions and specific herbs. Particularly moving is a chapter on the use of herbs in rituals that mark important life passages. This book is encyclopedic, and Korn peppers her impressive knowledge with stories about her own meaningful encounters with herbs. Natural Woman will provide assistance to women in all phases of life and will create a much-needed link to the healing wisdom found in indigenous cultures.” —Kathryn Ridall, author of Dreaming at the Gates
