9780609803905: The Chopra Center Herbal Handbook: Forty Natural Prescriptions for Perfect Health

People around the world are increasingly working with their own bodies to restore balance. They're using medicinals found in nature to avoid the side effects of antibiotics and turning to traditions that have passed the test of time. The oldest medical system of all is Ayurveda, which dates back 5,000 years to its origins in India. In The Chopra Center Herbal Handbook, Deepak Chopra, M.D., and David Simon, M.D., draw on the forty most important herbs of Ayurveda, from aloe and amrit to ginger and winter cherry, to create a practical, popular reference book that shows how to strengthen immunity, rejuvenate the body, boost energy, and detoxify the system.

Each listing in The Chopra Center Herbal Handbook contains botanical information, scientific research, instructions on using the herb, a line drawing, precautions, and most important, the specific ailments each herb is best suited to remedy, including those involving digestion, mind and emotions, women's and men's health matters, metabolism, pain, arthritis and inflammation, circulation, and many more.

Review:

Not in opposition to, but (surprisingly) in conjunction with impressive advances in the medical sciences, growing numbers of people are seeking gentle botanical methods for treating illnesses. Coauthors David Simon, M.D., and Deepak Chopra, M.D., attribute this "herbal renaissance" to our thriving information age and the resulting self-empowered "patients" who aren't nearly so patient as they once were. In celebration of this integrated healing approach, one that involves treating the mind and spirit as well as the body, Simon and Chopra fully describe the 40 most frequently herbs used in their Chopra Center for Well Being in La Jolla, California.

Simon and Chopra's approach draws heavily on Ayurveda, India's ancient medical system that honors the dynamic exchange of energy between humans and the entire universe. They discuss their holistic approach to healing, provide a self-guided test to assess current health, and offer insights on treating problems related to digestion, emotion, metabolism, energy, and more. These thoughts easily carry over into the second part of the book, the herb guide. Simple pencil drawings of each leafy specimen accentuate the written details: scientific research substantiating the herb's healing properties, ancient and modern uses, current available forms, doses, and wise precautions. Along with such practical information, the authors offer an Ayurvedic perspective, briefly outlining each herb's effects on pitta (metabolism/"fire"), kapha (structure/"earth"), and vata (motion/"wind"). Throughout the book, the two authors beautifully interweave fact, anecdote, and analogy to make for an informative, delightful collection. --Liane Thomas
