Here is a full-color guide to the healing properties of herbs, with more than 120 medicinal herbs and their therapeutic properties included. Penelope Ody’s guide is essential for natural healthy enthusiasts and herbalists.

All the parts of the plants that can be used medicinally are shown, from fresh flower petals or leaves to the root, bark, and juice. Each entry details the plant's chemical constituents, its actions, and its therapeutic applications—from exotic ma huang, used in China to treat asthma for 5,000 years, to humble cabbage, which has been effective against stomach ulcers in clinical tests. Here are more than 250 safe treatments to help alleviate common complaints and ailments:

  • Aches & Pains
  • Headaches and Migraines
  • Infections
  • Digestive Problems,
  • Urinary Disorders
  • Male Reproductive Problems
  • And much more!

A special how-to section explains the preparation of herbal remedies. There is even a section on the historical uses of these herbs.
