Optimize Your Health with the Healing Powers of Saw Palmetto!

Saw palmetto, best known today for easing prostate discomfort, has been used for generations to treat a vast array of ailments in men and women. This powerful herb boosts the immune and endocrine systems and combats male and female infertility, ovarian pain and cysts, urinary tract and lung problems, weak libido, anorexia, cystic acne -- even male baldness.

Nationally known clinical herbalist David Winston, AHG, an herbal practitioner and educator for 30 years, separates fact from fiction for health-conscious consumers and clinicians. He documents saw palmetto's value for a range of maladies, sharing his latest clinical results as well as those of other well-known herbalists and naturopaths, and offers his special formulas for making saw palmetto remedies at home.

Format: Paperback
Author David Winston has more than thirty years experience an all aspects of herbalism, including a mastery of medicine making, and studies of Eclectic medical herbalism, traditional Cherokee herbalism, and traditional Chinese medicine. The book covers the uses of Saw Palmetto completely from both traditional uses and scientific research. The traditional uses are much broader than simple treatment for prostatic hyperplasia in males. Winston also describes alternate and related treatments for both men and women

Format: Paperback
David Winston is one of the most respected herbalists in American, and his knowledge shines through in this book. In some ways it is incredible. He reviews the literature going back several centuries, and clearly explains the known ethnobotanical and scientific literature in easy to understand terms. Lots of solutions for genitourinary and other related health problems are described. I should know - this book gave me the answer to my son's difficult to solve acne problem. Get this book.
