This is one of my favorite herbals. It talks about the energetic properties of western, chinese and Ayurvedic herbs from the perspective of Ayurveda. It is especially valuable for those who practice Yoga. Every time I pick the book up I learn more. It is great.

Before I read this book I tried Echinacea for an illness because everyone knows it boosts immune system functioning. Well, not for me. This book cleared up alot of questions for me - there are herbs that are good for different body types - it explains it all simply & clearly.

I found this book far more useful in the initial stages of my interest in Ayurveda, but since that time find much of the material in the book questionable and unsubstantiated. How for example, do the authors obtain the energetics for western herbs? The reader should be reminded that the designation of energetic possibilities of medicinal plants on the subcontinent occured over hundreds, if not thousands of years. Thus, much of the energetic designations in this book seem to be based on no more than the inclinations of the authors. My experience is that while the energetics seem well rationalized, they don't always pan out. Thus, a good introductory book, but take it with a grain of 'saindhava'...
