Learning to strengthen the nervous system by adding natural herbs to your diet is easier than one might think. Rosemary Gladstar has compiled the information and natural herb recipes for completing this task.

I believe everyone has some sort of anxiety, stress, depression, or panic attacks, and these topics are covered with a wealth of information and terrific homemade herbal recipes. The natural herbs that are included in a few of the recipes have parsley; flowers of essence include aspen, rock rose, and olive.

Ms. Gladstar also includes a list of natural herbs along with a very descriptive analysis, it uses, benefits, and preparation tips. She discusses nerve tonics and sedatives. There is also a section on ‘Which Ginseng Should I Use? When preparing your remedy from natural herbs, there is a dosage chart for reference.

In addition, under the heading ‘Massage and Body Therapies’, gives great information on relaxation for the body and mind.

Rosemary Gladstar brings much insight to the nervous system in our bodies, which often is overlooked. I highly recommend to everyone seeking a possible natural alternative to pharmaceutical drugs. Do not use these remedies before consulting with your personal physician.

I received this book free from Storey Publishing through the Net Galley Reviewer Program for this unbiased review.

I was a bit disappointed when I received this book and noticed how little it is. But don't let that fool you. It is packed with information and herbal recipes, with wonderful explanations. It really does approach the way an herbalist would--holistically (lifestyle) with a great understanding of herbs, rather than shooting the body with a bullet. Love it--and love the price for so much information.

I was shocked at how small the volume is, but as another reviewer said: it is chock full of information. There were some recommendations that I hadn't heard about and others that I did, but this time had more information. Rosemary Gladstar is THE go-to person for herbal medicine. I do wish this were about 50 pages longer and covered some other conditions, but for the price this is a great addition to anyone's library. I look forward to using this as a resource alongside Rosemary's other books for many years to come.

Stress surrounds us. Good stress, bad stress doesn't matter to the body - it's stress. Natural means of dealing with it is good.

I have a small library of books on a variety of topics, including herbs. I don't have one by this author, and expect some will look at the size of the book and dismiss it. Don't. It's small but concise - if you took notes during a class or while reading a bigger book, it'd be this book. How to make tinctures and other things is covered as well as a basic what herbs are useful for what issue (and when not to use it). Not taking it all the time was a good point.

There's a couple points I thought were a little odd for me - the lunar tea, for example, is a bit beyond my belief system although sun tea is a regular. So if it's a little different it hurts...what? Nothing!

In full disclosure I viewed a reading copy from NetGalley, but this is worth adding to the quick and grab referral pile - easy to find references because it's not a big book. Worth it, worth the money. Well done.

Excellent reference to help overcome the stress and anxiety in a person's life. It is important not to put toxins in your body that will only accumulate and have side effects. Ingesting herbs is so beneficial for your body and provides the added nutrients that the body is able to absorb.

I love Rosemary Gladstar's books! A local herbalist who is also an author teaches her own classes and recommends Rosemary Gladstar's books. When I let her know at a farmers market that I was interested in starting to learn about herbalism she told me to check out her books. I first bought the Medicinal Herbs Beginners Guide and devoured it! I marked it up with 4 different highlighters and also used a bunch of the post it flags to mark things to re-visit.
After that book I needed to learn more! I particularly have issues with stress and anxiety and this book is perfect to tell me what I should do to help things, naturally. Please keep in mind this book is from the "Basics" line of books so it isn't very thick, and honestly it shouldn't need to be. Its a pretty specific book, but has a TON of information packed into the pages!

This wasn't new information to me, as I've been using herbs to manage my health for a number of years now. It is, however, very clearly presented, written well enough to be a pleasure to read. If you are looking for a book on this subject, you would do well to invest in this one.

Ms. Gladstar has other books on herbal subjects, and they too are well-written and informative. She's a great author to collect.
