Summary

''As Dr. Bloomfield shows, in many cases the best and safest remedies are natural herbs. Medical studies have shown that kava can relieve mild to moderate anxiety as effectively as Valium-like tranquilizers - but without sedation, memory impairment, or threat of addiction. Hypericum (Saint-John's-wort), which can be just as effective as synthetic antidepressants for mild to moderate depression, can also be used to alleviate anxiety. Valerian extract can provide a good night's sleep without the morning hangover or rebound insomnia of prescription sleeping pills. Ginkgo biloba is a ''brain booster'' that is useful as a daily supplement for anyone over the age of forty who is dealing with the angst of aging. The ginsengs and ashwaganda can help to strengthen the nervous system and protect against stress. Hospitals in Britain are using lavender oil aromatherapy to calm patients before surgery. Evening primrose oil and Traditional Chinese Medicinal herbs can help to treat Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).''--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
