Rosemary Gladstar: Herbal Healing for Men *Book Launch*

Event date: 
Thursday, June 15, 2017 - 7:00pm

Join renowned herbalist Rosemary Gladstar to celebrate the launch of her new book, Herbal Healing for Men!  This title addresses the often-neglected health issues specific to men with advice and safe, effective herbal recipes to support energy, virility, heart health, and common ailments related to inflammation, prostate, impotence, and more.  We'll mark the event with a talk and Q&A with Rosemary, as well as light fare and door prizes provided by our cosponsors.

(Psst!  An autographed copy of Herbal Healing for Men would make a perfect Father's Day gift!  Fathers Day is just a few days after the event, on Sunday, June 18th.)

ABOUT THE BOOK: Best-selling author Rosemary Gladstar, long known for her outstanding recipes, now customizes her expertise for men. Dozens of delicious and simple formulas address men’s most common health concerns — including sexual vitality, prostate well-being, and heart health. An A-to-Z compendium of these ailments details how to effectively treat them using a variety of safe and easy natural remedies. In-depth profiles of 29 herbs explain how men will benefit from each and suggest uses and accessible preparation tips. This handy guidebook for men — and those who love them — provides a helpful introduction to this crucial, but often-overlooked, aspect of natural wellness.
