Written by two acclaimed practicing herbalists, Women’s Herbs, Women’s Health provides scientific information on how herbs work and which herbs are best for treating a variety of female conditions using both Western and Chinese herbs. Recipes for specific herbal preparations are included. The book describes how to use each of 25 important herbs, what side effects to watch out for, how to prevent osteoporosis and heart disease, how to use herbs to keep hormones in balance, and provides multiple case studies and personal stories.

The authors thoroughly explore the causes of conditions of particular concern for women, including heart disease, osteoporosis, and mood disorders, as well as menstrual and reproductive issues. And they offer an introductory section on how to use herbs to address the underlying conditions of disease, relieve discomfort, and achieve better health.

“Presents current information, clinical studies, and controversial subjects in an intelligent manner, making it particularly valuable for the contemporary woman. Christopher and Kathi have created a wonderful resource, one that is infused with the history of herbalism and colorfully garnished with the essence of who they are.” —Rosemary Gladstar, author of Herbal Healing for Women
