Have you ever wondered why the wise men brought frankincense and myrrh for the baby Jesus? As a curious and highly enthusiastic child, health and wellness coach Teri Secrest asked everyone she knew and met, but no one could tell her. She grew up thinking it was just a nice little story…but never stopped wondering. This thirst for knowledge sparked Teri’s twenty-three-year quest to learn about essential oils. It has taken her to the far corners of the world—from Croatia and France to Oman, Israel, and beyond. Teri has written this book to share the mystery, the romance, and the ageless intrigue of essential oils. She hopes you experience the Father’s love as He continually lavishes His children with these exquisite oils and you feel this rich, biblical history come alive in your spirit. Teri wants you to see how miraculous your body is and how it’s designed to heal itself when given proper nourishment and support. Essential Oils: God’s Extravagant Provision for Your Health offers practical how-to’s that you can use immediately, including the use of oils for romance, balancing hormones, cooking, cleaning, pets, children, and fragrance, as well as health concerns such as stress, negative emotions, trouble sleeping, weight gain, and anxiety. You will find practical guidance to regain and maintain health naturally. As you gain this understanding, Teri believes you will change the next generation as you discover the hidden secrets of these biblical plants and how to incorporate them into your everyday life.

Herbal Formularies for Health Professionals is a five-volume set that serves as a comprehensive, practical reference manual for herbalists, physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals. Dr. Jill Stansbury draws on her decades of clinical experience and her extensive research to provide an unparalleled range of herbal formulas. Organized by body system, each volume includes hundreds of formulas to treat common health conditions, as well as formulas that address specific energetic or symptomatic presentations. For each formula, Dr. Stansbury briefly explains how the selected herbs address the specific condition. Sidebars and user-friendly lists help readers quickly choose which herbs are best for specific presentations and detail traditional uses of both Western and traditional Asian formulas and herbs that are readily available in the United States. Volume 3 focuses on endocrine systems, offering formulas and supporting information for treating thyroid disease, adrenal disorders, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. This volume also covers the female and male reproductive systems including conditions related to menstruation and PMS, fertility and pregnancy, and the prostate. Reproductive endocrinology is one of Dr. Stansbury's specialties, and she provides herbal formulas and therapies for pelvic inflammatory disease, genital herpes, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, PCOS, uterine fibroids, low libido, erectile disfunction, and more. She also discusses the role of herbal medicine in prevention and treatment of reproductive cancers. Each chapter includes a materia medica section that describes individual herbs with tips on their properties, modes of action, and the specific symptoms each plant best addresses. These formularies are also a tutorial for budding herbalists on the sophisticated art of fine-tuning an herbal formula for the constitution and overall health condition of an individual patient, rather than prescribing a one-size-fits-all treatment for a basic diagnosis. The text aims to teach by example, helping clinicians develop their own intuition and ability to create effective herbal formulas. Volume 1 focuses on digestion and elimination and Volume 2 covers circulation and respiration. Volumes 4 (Neurology, Psychiatry, and Pain Management) and 5 (Immunology, Orthopedics, and Otolaryngology) will be published in 2020.

Stress seems to be an affliction common to almost everyone living in the 21st century except perhaps a few inhabitants of some far-off islands untouched by modern society. But what is it? And more importantly, what is there we can do about it? Some research says we need it but this seems hard to believe. Other research, no less believable, says we don't need it but we can manage it. About the only thing about stress that seems certain is that there is a lot of it around and that the less of it that lands on a person the better. This book gathers new and important citations from both the journal and the book literature and provides access through author, subject and title indexes.

Quick Access is an information database developed by Integrative Medicine Communications to allow health professionals from various educational and philosophical backgrounds access to a complete picture of the different approaches used to maintain health, treat disease or manage conditions. By bringing together many specialists, including pharmacists, doctors, nutritionists, herbalists and naturopaths, Quick Access has developed into an accurate, practical, essential and fully referenced database providing monographs on conditions, herbs and dietary supplements. For the first time this information is being made available in a user-friendly format aimed directly at the general public. Quick Access Consumer Guide to Conditions, Herbs & Supplements offers authoritative, concise and readable information that makes sense of the most popular dietary supplements on the market. The book has three broad categories that allow quick answers to your questions: Conditions - learn about a condition's signs and symptoms, what causes and what to expect from the doctor. This is followed by a number of treatment options including drugs, nutrition and the use of complementary therapies. Only those complementary therapies considered safe and that work well with conventional care have been included. As a result, herbs and dietary supplements receive a relatively large share of coverage. Herbs - this section gives the best evidence to support the use of herbs in maintaining health or in treating conditions. You are able to search for a particular herb, using this section first, or look here for more information on an herb, having seen it listed under treatment options for a particular condition.
