Item Description...
The definitive guide to adaptogenic herbs, formerly known as "tonics," that counter the effects of age and stress on the body
- Reveals how adaptogens increase the body's resistance to adverse influences
- Provides a history of the use of these herbal remedies and the actions, properties, preparation, and dosage for each herb
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 licorice, 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.
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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An Herbalists Opinion  Nov 19, 2008
I've had a keen interest in the adaptogens for a few years now, so was looking forward to reading this book. David Winston wrote the book geared for the general public, unfortunatly that leaves out the pharmacognosy that I rely on, which in turn, makes some on their applications sound like hype. In spite of this, I highly recommend this book! Very little is known about this catagory of herbs, and its only since the Russians have been integrated into the international database (2005) that we have any hard scientific evidence of the properties of this most important group of herbs. An excellent book on a most complicated subject.
Informative overview of medicinal herbs  Oct 6, 2008
This book was an excellent source for learning about adaptogens and their health benefits. I bought it mainly for help in reducing stress and anxiety.
An Extraordinary Find  Apr 13, 2008
Adaptogens is a book that shows skillful research and imparts that knowledge beautifully. I was thrilled to find this book is one that I will refer to often and each time will enrich my life. Life without knowledge is like a peel without a bannana. this book is an extraordinary find. A book like this can make our world a better place.
highly recommended  Feb 8, 2008
I have studied folkloric herbalism for many years, and in the last three years it has become a passion. This book is wonderful, and is by far one of the best books available as an in-depth reference and treatise regarding these valuable green allies and their medicinal properties. Enlightening to the new herbalists, and invaluable to the more experienced.
The Art of Herbal Medicine Reflected in Adaptogens book  Nov 26, 2007
I am delighted to hear David Winston's voice reflecting his skill and wisdom as a herbalist in the book Adaptogens Herbs for Strength, Stamina, and Stress. This book brings to the reader the opportunity to learn from both the traditional herbal knowledge on this important subject along with the information coming to the subject from science and modern technology. The book has the flavor of a more traditional herbal bringing in the subtle skill of energies unique to each individual plant which belong to this group and introducing the reader to the concept of formulation of adaptogen plants. The reader can truly begins to experience the Art of Herbal Medicine reflected in David's writing voice.
