Rainforests contain hundreds of plants - over half the planet's vegetation - and for centuries tribal shamans have used these plants as health remedies. Years of research contributes to The Healing Power Of Rainforest Herbs: A Guide To Understanding And Using Herbal Medicinals, a guide to over seventy rainforest botanicals and their uses by indigenous peoples and natural health professionals alike. Chapters offer plant data summary charts, biological and clinical research, tribal uses, and plenty of technical, research-based reference material. From dosage to preparation methods and chemical information for each plant, Healing Power Of Rainforest Herbs goes far beyond the 'new age healing guide' it looks to be at first glance. Very highly recommended indeed.
