A Directory of Over 70 Healing Herbs for Energy, Stress Relief , Beauty, and Overall Well-Being
Melissa Petitto

The modern world is loud, messy and oh so stressful. Whether the stressor is environmental (originating in your body) or psychological (triggering your fight-or-flight response and causing the release of cortisol), adaptogens are packed with amino acids and/or vitamins that help manage the harmful effects stress has on the body. While relatively new to the western world, adaptogens are at the root of many things in western medicine. Did you know that aspirin comes from willow bark?

ADAPTOGENS is divided into three sections. The first is an easy-to-understand breakdown of the history and science behind these wonderful herbal remedies. The second, and the bulk of the book, is the adaptogen comprehensive directory so that you can work out which products and powders will best work with the stresses of your life. The last is a stack of delicious and nutritious recipes.

Nature has given us many plants across the world that are talented at growing in stressful environments. They pass on this talent once consumed. These plants are not a quick fix for a stressful situation. Rather, they are a way to help the body better deal with the higher amounts of stress we seem to be seeing a lot of at the moment. Learn about what plants can do for you as you harness nature's power. Learn how to find the appropriate adaptogenic doses to keep yourself live in perfect harmony.
