Book Description

15 Jan 2014
In this herbal guide to healthy aging, medical herbalist David Hoffmann discusses how to maintain the body's vitality as we age and how to treat and prevent the health concerns brought about by aging. He provides herbal treatments to restore and protect each of the body's major systems--from the muscles, bones, and digestive system to the pulmonary, cardiovascular, and reproductive organs--as well as herbal remedies for specific ailments such as prostate enlargement, hot flashes, hypertension, insomnia, bronchitis, varicose veins, and arthritis. He shows how herbs can help minimize dependence on conventional medical treatments and provide a safe and welcome alternative to the unpleasant and sometimes dangerous side effects of synthetic drugs. In the materia medica, Hoffmann details more than 150 health-promoting herbs and their actions on the body and mind, preparation methods, and recommended dosages. This authoritative guide to herbal preventive medicine offers holistic treatments designed not only to promote vibrant health but also to provide a way to age with grace.

Review

"Medical statistics clearly show that Americans are the most heavily medicated people in the world. In spite of this (or possibly because of this) we rank far below many other first world countries in life expectancy and far above in cancer rates, levels of obesity, and many other chronic degenerative diseases. As our population ages many more people are realizing that in order to stay healthy into old age we need to become proactive, improving our diets and lifestyle choices, reducing stress, and becoming more knowledgeable about our health and medicine. One way we can help to prevent disease and enhance wellness is the intelligent use of herbs. Because few Americans grew up using plants as medicine, educating oneself as to their safe and rational use is essential. With so many books, websites, and magazines publishing information on herbs and natural health, how does one discern accurate information from the fraudulent? One answer is David Hoffmann's new book, "Herbs for Healthy Aging". Hoffmann is one of the Western world's most respected clinical herbalists, and he offers the reader safe, effective, and relevant treatments for many of the ills that come with increasing age. If you want to prevent senior moments, menopausal symptoms, prostatic enlargement, and circulatory problems, some of the answers you are seeking can be found within these pages."

Herbs for Healthy Aging: Natural Prescriptions for Vibrant Health
By David Hoffman, FNIMH, AHG
ISBN-13: 978-1-62055-226-6 (Healing Arts Press, 2014)

Aging … for far too long we have accepted it with all that it brings. But David Hoffman brings some tried-and-true remedies for many of the common health concerns of aging. We live in a culture in which we were told to listen to our doctors and that everything would be OK. By now we know that we need to be proactive and take part in our journey to maintain our health. Most Americans have been led down the wrong path when it comes to using herbs and this is your opportunity to change that. In a world filled with “genetically modified organisms” and pesticides of all types we need to stay healthy by using nature and staying informed about the natural ways to use herbs.
