All About Herbal Remedies
by Girija Khanna

Using modern medicines for a running nose or stomach is like killing a fly with a gun. Urban patients alienated from traditional practices, are often overdrugged for the most trivial of health problems. Herbal remedies offer effective cures, says Dr. Khanna by helping body defenses fight disease; modern medicines directly attack the disease and in the process weaken the system. Included in this book are about a thousand recipes drawn from the vanishing tradition of folk medicine, and tested out by the author's patients, on her prescription. Some of these come in handy in medical emergencies. Easy to make from available fruits, vegetable herbs and spices.

Home Remedies
by T. V. Sairam
Even before Charaka compiled the Samhita, his treaties on Ayurveda, in the second century B.C., women and men were using herbs from their kitchens, fields and forests to alleviate pain and cure sickness. But with the coming of Western medicine, such indigenous practices were condemned out of court as unscientific. This book, the outcome of over three decades of journeying and interactions with barely recognized vaids, ojhas and small community physicians, attempts to document these practices, while presenting also the findings of Western science that has only recently begun to acknowledge and legitimize them. Forty of the most common herbs in every Indian kitchen, including well-loved familiars such as garlic, ginger and pudina, and the more special saffron, almonds and figs, are described here as known in local, specialized healing traditions. The botanical profile of each herb is followed by an extensive record of its medicinal uses in particular ailments, with detailed notes on the preparation and dosage of each remedy, and an extensively bibliography of research articles. Comprehensive and separate glossaries of English and non-English technical terms and unfamiliar herbs, a multi-language index of plant names, and detailed illustrations make Home Remedies a unique reference guide to rediscovering a host of remedies for the most commonly encountered ailments.

Home Remedies Volume II
by T. V. Sairam
Researched over three decades, this book gathers together medicinal and cosmetic recipes, tracing roots that lead back through lineages of trusted physician-orders such as the Siddhas of the south. The author meticulously documents many parallel traditions, and their uses of individual plants to cure and comfort. Forty marketplace regulars such as the carrot, drumstick and tamarind, fruit such as the jamun, flowers such as the jasmine and flame of the forest, and quaint oddballs such as the bone-setter and devil's tree are here described through individual botanical profiles, followed by an extensive record of medicinal uses in particular ailments, with detailed notes on the preparation and dosage of each remedy. A comprehensive bibliography of scientific articles, separate glossaries of English and non-English technical terms, a multi-language index of plant names, and detailed illustrations make this second volume of Home Remedies an illuminating rediscovery of herbs that here come into their own as purveyors of a health and happiness increasingly hard to come by.

Ayurveda - Life, Health And Longevity
by Robert E Svoboda
Developed from the Vedas, India's ancient books of wisdom, Ayurveda combines physical, paychological and spiritual therapies in an approch to health that is as relevant to the modern world as it was to the ancient world when it first became part of India's collective consciousness. Here, for the first time in the West, is a definitive handbook of a health care system, both sensible and sublime, that is still alive and well. The author is the first Westerner to graduate from an Indian Ayurvedic college. Utilizing herbs and minerals, proper nutrition and purification and,above all,affirmative ways of living, Ayurveda treats not just the ailments but the whole person and emphasizes prevention of disease to aviod the need for cure. Its ancient message has helped spread the new holistic thinking in the West, encouraging us to become 'stewards of life' in order, now, to give civilization itself a chance to heal.
