Synopsis: 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.
