Adaptogens in Medical Herbalism

Weaving together the ancient wisdom of herbalism and the most up-to-date scientific research on cancer, aging and nutrition, renowned herbalist and clinical nutritionist, Donald Yance, reveals how to master stress, improve energy levels, prevent degenerative disease and age gracefully with the elite herbs known as adaptogens. Yance's holistic approach, called the Eclectic Triphasic Medical System (ETMS), is based on extensive scientific research, more than 25 years of clinical practice and excellent results with thousands of patients. It centres on four interconnected groups of health tools: botanical formulations, nutritional supplements, diet and lifestyle. Defining four categories for adaptogenic herbs, he explains how formulations should combine herbs from each category to create a synergistic effect. He provides more than 60 monographs on herbs and nutritional compounds as well as custom combinations to revitalise the immune system, build cardiovascular health, protect brain function, manage weight and support cancer treatment. He explains the interplay of endocrine health, the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, thyroid function and stress in the aging process and reveals how adaptogenic treatment begins at the cellular level with the mitochondria - the microscopic energy producers present in every living cell. Emphasising spirituality, exercise and diet, in addition to herbal treatments and nutritional supplements, Yance's complete lifestyle programme explores how to enhance energy production in the body and subdue the pro-inflammatory state that lays the groundwork for nearly every degenerative disease, taking you from merely surviving to thriving. * Explains how adaptogenic herbs work at the cellular level to enhance energy production and subdue the pro-inflammatory state behind degenerative disease * Explores the author's custom adaptogenic blends for the immune system, cardiovascular health, thyroid function, brain health and cancer treatment support * Provides more than 60 monographs on herbs and nutritional compounds based on more than 25 years of clinical practice with thousands of patients

"Donald Yance masterfully weaves together the ancient wisdom of traditional botanical medicines and the most up-to-date scientific research on degenerative disease, aging, and nutrition to provide effective solutions that address a host of modern day health challenges." Dr. Mehmet Oz, co-author of You: The Owners Manual and host of The Dr. Oz Show "Donnie Yance has done it again! Nowhere has such a voluminous and practical assortment of valid information about adaptogens been assembled in such a readable and useful format. I will be using this book in my research, in my daily life, and whenever I have a question about an ingredient I am using." Martha Stewart, founder of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, author of numerous bestselling books, pu "Adaptogenic herbs, considered elixirs in many traditional cultures, have activities that move us beyond surviving into thriving. Their effects would seem almost unbelievable and magical if there wasn't such strong science to back them up. They are, perhaps, the most important medicines we have for not only surviving, but thriving in this age. Donald Yance brings these herbs to you through their history, science, and his vast clinical experience, giving you the tools you need to revitalize your life. This is a must read for all of us who want to live up to our optimal capacities and then some!" Aviva Romm, M.D., award-winning author of Botanical Medicine for Women's Health, advisory board memb "Donald Yance probably knows more about treating cancer with herbs and alternative therapies and has helped more people with this dreaded disease than any other herbalist in the world. His depth of knowledge, commitment, and passion for his work and the people he cares for are legendary. In his new book on adaptogens, Donald brings the same level of research and detailed clinical insights to this important class of herbs that made his previous book on cancer a classic text." David Winston, RH(AHG), coauthor of Adaptogens: Herbs for Strength, Stamina, and Stress Relief "A breakthrough in herbalism! This book should be in every household." Christopher Vasey, ND, author of The Acid-Alkaline Diet for Optimum Health and Optimal Detox "Ancient wisdom tells us that adaptogens are the Imperial Herbs, the Jewels in the Golden Cabinet that nourish, replenish, rejuvenate, restore, and promote longevity and superior quality of life. There is no one better than Master Herbalist Donnie Yance to teach us how to combine traditional healing wisdom with modern science in the skillful use of these remarkable healing agents. Donnie brings a depth and breadth of knowledge and experience and provides not only an integrated and comprehensive view but also practical applications." Nalini Chilkov, L.Ac., O.M.D., founder of Integrative Cancer Answers "This is a wonderful, deeply informative, and comprehensive book... I strongly recommend Adaptogens in Medical Herbalism to anyone who is devoted to preventing, healing, or recovering from a chronic condition. It is my hope and prayer that this book becomes a mainstay in general public education and dialogue, as well as in integrative medicine and integrative oncology." Robert Zieve, M.D., president of the Center for Healthy Medicine and author of Healthy Medicine and "Western medicine needs medical herbalism and Donnie Yance provides comprehensive natural medicine knowledge of adaptogens and their companions along with insightful information on vitality and health. The book also contains useful monographs and extensive journal references for practitioners." Steven Maimes, coauthor of Adaptogens: Herbs for Strength, Stamina, and Stress Relief "Donald Yance has yet again set a benchmark for complementary, botanical medical books. Adaptogens in Medical Herbalism is both thorough and available and it provides clear understandings of the importance of these herbs in health and disease prevention. What distinguishes Donnie's book from the many available in the field is his grasp of the essential issues and his deep exploration of the resources demonstrated by his faultless referencing. It will become the standard by which future books will be judged." Daniel Weber, Ph.D., M.Sc., president of the Association for Integrative Oncology and Chinese Medici "This is an absolutely amazing book! Yance has approached stress, that archenemy of good health, by utilizing adaptogens (in traditional and modern applications), their supporting herbs, and your own personal level of awareness. Written with striking clarity, it is readily understood by both lay and professional herbalists, indeed, by everyone truly committed to good preventative health-care." Foodies West, November 2013 "Comprehensive and extensive, Adaptogens in Medical Herbalism should be considered an essential and core addition to professional, community, and academic library Alternative Medicine & Human Health reference collections." Midwest Book Review, November 2013 "Written by a master herbalist, this book isn't for the casual, just-make-me-better-doc kind of healthcare consumer; it wouldn't look out of place on a practitioner's bookshelf, actually. But anyone who takes their health seriously will find an abundance of valuable information within its covers." Lisa James, Energy Times, February 2014
