He provides herbal treatments to restore and protect each of the body’s major systems, from the muscles, bones and digestive system to the pulmonary, cardiovascular and reproductive organs, as well as herbal remedies for specific ailments such as prostate enlargement, hot flashes, hypertension, insomnia, bronchitis, varicose veins and arthritis.

He shows how herbs can help minimize dependence on conventional medical treatments and provide a safe and welcome alternative to the unpleasant and sometimes dangerous side effects of synthetic drugs.

In the materia medica, Hoffmann details more than 150 health-promoting herbs and their actions on the body and mind, preparation methods and recommended dosages.
