From Library Journal
This comprehensive work by an acupuncturist and herbalist brings the ancient knowledge of Chinese, Indian, and Tibetan herbal medicine to Westerners. Tools for self-diagnosis emphasize treating the person, rather than the illness, to ensure a healthy harmony of body, mind, and spirit. Herbs are recommended for a gamut of problems, ranging from eating disorders, arthritis, and PMS to sexual dysfunction and depression. Hadady tells how to prepare herbal remedies at home but also includes mail-order sources. A cross reference of herb names to their Chinese names and a general index and herb index are provided. This thorough volume is recommended as a definitive resource on Asian herbal medicine for popular alternative medicine collections.

I think it is fortunate for this information by LETHA HADADY....lol..maybe a reincarnated chinese herb master from China...
Good health is the best prosperity one can achieve because with excellent health, one has the strength, courage, vitality and fortitude to overcome desperation.
I have personally utilized Letha Hadady's reference to release myself from pharmaceuticals I was previously unable to release myself from. The herbs, vitamins, vegetables, and timing to my individual needs were observed and put into action to release me from all my personal maladies. I am so greatful for this compendium of Asian herbal food and spice secrets!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ms. Hadady is an excellent teacher: like most good teachers, she gives you the information and the methodology to be able to begin analyzing problems on your own. She presents a huge amount of information in way that is warm and readable but not patronizing. She starts from the beginning, laying out all the foundations of Asian medicine, so that each chapter builds on the knowledge you've gained in the previous. Every piece of information is useful and necessary; there is no fluff. It's completely worthwhile to take the time to read the whole book. As big as it is, it's a quick and enjoyable read, and the information is invaluable. I found myself taking notes because I really wanted to absorb everything.
I don't think I'm really communicating how good I think this book is. It's truly comprehensive in the best meaning of the word, without being overly complicated or esoteric. It presents alternative methods of diagnosing and treating problems (teas, herbal remedies, nutrition, homeopathic remedies, meditation, etc.), so if one approach doesn't see to be working, you can try others. The appendix lists resources for obtaining supplies and further information. Most importantly, the suggestions are all things that the average person (like me) can actually do. I strongly recommend this book.
The author is quite knowledgable about Chinese herbs, medicinal mushrooms, and other applied health practices including acupuncture. Her clear explanations and attractive illustrations in the book help to bridge the learning gap experienced by physicians and nurses in the West.
I predict that this book and workshops associated with it will become a growing trend in modern clinical practice.
