This absolutely beautiful, inviting yet in-depth herbal is a recommended addition to your collection whether you're just starting to explore herbalism or you're an experienced student of the subject.  Maria Noel Groves describes each system of the body - and how herbs can help nourish it and bring it back into balance - in articulate, vivid and often delightful language.  While she does address what can be done for specific imbalances and symptoms, this book isn't about what's "wrong" with you and how to treat it, but about how herbs can help us to be resilient, healthy, and strong.

— From Body into Balance, by Maria Noel Groves


Silver Nautilus Book Award Winner for Health & Healing

An antacid or an aspirin may soothe your pain, but it doesn't cure the cause of your symptoms. Headaches, indigestion, fatigue, allergies, anxiety, eczema, high blood pressure, and other conditions are clues to a deeper imbalance in your body, and learning to read those clues is a key step in maintaining optimal health. Herbalist Maria No l Groves shows you how to read your body's signals and support your own wellness with herbal remedies and other natural treatments. You'll learn how each of your major body systems -- respiratory, digestive, immune, nervous, memory, reproductive, circulatory, and more -- optimally functions, and you'll discover how to use natural remedies to nourish and repair problem areas, restore lost vitality, support your body as a whole, and prevent future problems. Groves includes in-depth instructions, with step-by-step photographs, for making your own herbal remedies, as well as expert guidance on buying and effectively using commercial preparations.
