"Now, in Secrets of Native American Herbal Remedies, author Anthony J. Cichoke imparts this knowledge to you. He explores the history of the use of more than 100 American herbs, including such newly popular ones as echinacea, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, and goldenseal. In an accessible yet authoritative style, his book provides an overview of the herbs and details their healthful constituents, forms in which they can be purchased, and ways to prepare them. It then discusses each herb individually, giving information on uses and benefits. Part Two recommends healing formulas for common conditions ranging from abscesses to wounds. A description of each condition is followed by recipes for therapeutic teas, ointments, washes, gargles, and more. The final part of the book offers guidelines for creating your own individual wellness program in the Native American tradition, complete with dietary modifications and spirit healing."--BOOK JACKET.
