    I found this book very approachable with great information about applications and recipes for specific ailments I particularly appreciated the section devoted to women's health A lot of herbal remedy books will prescribe various herbs for things like PMS but without going into any further detail PMS is an umbrella term for all sorts of things like fatigue breast soreness uterine cramps water retention headache mood sensitivity etc This book actually explains what causes these ailments like the drop in magnesium and calcium in the body after ovulation and goes on to explain why certain herbs are particularly beneficial I also like the approach it takes regarding herbs as way of healing inbalances in the body andor maintaining balance and not just a treatment for sickness
