"Adaptogenic herbs can be most useful in the quest for health in our stressful society. David Winston and Steven Maimes explain and champion the use and benefits of these important herbs." (James A. Duke, author of The Green Pharmacy)
"This is a much needed book, an important update to the materia medica of North America, and constitutes important continuing education on a wide variety of new herbs entering into the North American herbal marketplace." (Paul Bergner, Medical Herbalism, Winter 2007)
"It's about time a book took on the subject of immune herbs, and this one does an excellent job of explaining why they are so effective at combating stress-induced illness. The text is very easy to read and understand, but still contains the latest scientific research, all well referenced." (American Herb Association, Vol. 23:1, April 08)
“Brilliant! Fully researched, full of information not readily available, as well as being practical and easy to digest. The authors have managed to blend the traditional and recent scientific information into a fully comprehensive and informative text. This will become a classic, a definitive work on this most important group of medicinal plants.” (Rosemary Gladstar, founder of United Plant Savers and author of Herbal Healing for Women)
“Essential reading for all involved with adaptogens, whether practitioners or consumers. This is the first comprehensive guide to adaptogens based on good herbalism, good science, and NO hype! A truly excellent book.” (David Hoffmann, BSc, FNIMH, author of Medical Herbalism and Herbal Prescriptions after 50)
“With Adaptogens, David Winston and Steven Maimes have finally made this important healing concept accessible to a wider audience. We need adaptogens--gentle remedies that, over time, have the powerful effect of restoring and protecting our health on many levels. David Winston’s vast clinical and practical knowledge of herbs adds tremendously to the value of the book.” (Christopher Hobbs, author of Handmade Herbal Medicines and Natural Therapy for Your Liver)
"There is so much valuable information packed into this volume that I am grateful to have my own copy and will keep it close by as a very handy reference" (Marjorie Tietjen, Price-Pottenger: Journal of Health and Healing, Volume 34 / Number 2, September 20)
We all deal with stress every day, and every day our bodies strive to adapt and stay balanced and healthy. In "Adaptogens", authors, David Winston and Steven Maimes, provide a comprehensive look into adaptogens, non-toxic herbs such as ginseng, eleuthero, and liquorice, that produce a defensive response to stress in our bodies. Formerly known as rejuvenating herbs or tonics, adaptogens help the body to "adapt" to the many influences it encounters. They increase stamina and counter the normal effects of aging and, thus, are becoming important tools in sports medicine and in the prevention and treatment of chronic fatigue and other stress-related disorders. This work reveals how adaptogens increase the body's resistance to adverse influences and provides a history of the use of these herbal remedies and the actions, properties, preparation, and dosage for each herb. Winston and Maimes present the historical uses of these herbal remedies in India, Russia, China, and the Americas and explain how they work and why they are so effective at combating stress-induced illness.Monographs for each adaptogen also present the latest scientific research and include the origin, traditional use, actions, properties, preparation, and dosage for each herb.

The main adaptogens covered in this book are American ginseng, amla, ashwagandha, asian ginseng, astragalus, cordyceps, dang shen, eleuthero, guduchi, he shou wu, holy basil, jiaogulan, licorice, lycium, prince seng, reishi, rhaponticum, rhodiola, shisandra, shatavari, shilajit - interestingly enough most of them seem to be either part of Ayurveda or Traditional Chinese Medicine, and there is not much mention of herbs that may be traditionally used in western herbalism.
With the herbs covered in this book, he author has listed the history of the herb, where the herb grows, modern uses of the herb, dosage and safety, and there is a mention of few related studies. Herbs are also grouped in relation to different health issues, so you'll find herbs that may help with stress, those that may be helpful for breathing problems, herbs that may be helpful with athletic performance, those that may be helpful when dealing with cardio-vascular problems, those that may be helpful with musculo-skeletal problems, and so on - though if you do have any such problems, you may benefit from also looking into other herbs that are not mentioned in this book.
The author has added a small section on additional herbs that are helpful as nerve tonics - like chamomile, passionflower, skullcap, lemon balm and few others; and a section on herbal nootropics like bacopa, gotu kola, bhringaraj (which is otherwise popular for boosting hair growth), and few others.
Included are some popular herbal formulations from Traditional Chinese Medicine (bu zong yi qi tang, sheng mai san, etc.), and from Ayurveda (chyavanprash, and triphala), as well as some recipes for incorporating adapogenic herbs into food or making teas with combination of different herbs.
On a side note, there is a minimal mention on any herbs which have been traditionally used by western herbalists that will help you to boost your immune system, many of which you may find in your local grocery store, and add to food like turmeric, oregano, thyme and other spices, or make tea out of cinnamon, ginger and cloves - as will garlic and lemon, but they are beyond the scope of this book. Perhaps the greatest benefit of this book is that it covers herbs that many people in the west may be less familiar with.
Leider ist das Buch derzeit nur in englischer Sprache erhältlich, doch kann ich es sehr empfehlen, wenn man sich für phytotherapeutische Mittel interessiert, die der Prävention von Erkrankungen dienen, aber auch auf relativ nebenwirkungsfreie Weise die Heilbehandlung des Arztes bei Krankheiten unterstützen.

These herbs are essential for chronic disease because many patients have come to live with unmanaged stress which tends to exacerbate if not cause some of their symptoms. For instance, using Rhodiola for chronic depression can be an eye opening experience. I say this because I've seen just using this one herbal simple will alleviate much of the symptoms - similarly Ashwagandha and anxiety. So once you begin to know them as singles, it's also helpful to see how and why you'd combine them.
This book is a bit old (would love to see an update or revision), but still relevant. This is especially true given there are so few books available on this important class of herbs.
The fact they look at the herbs in a separate materia medica section, then a section on specific diseases/complaints, and even a section on how to use them as foods - overall just a wonderful document. The sections on nootropics and nervines is also helpful and well done.
