About this book

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.
