Praise for
ADAPTOGENS in Medical Herbalism
“Donald Yance has yet again set a benchmark for complementary, botanical
medical books. Adaptogens in Medical Herbalism is both thorough and
accessible, 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., PRESIDENT OF THE ASSOCIATION FOR
INTEGRATIVE ONCOLOGY AND CHINESE MEDICINE, EDITOR OF
THE JOURNAL OF CHINESE INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE, AND VICE
CHAIR OF ONCOLOGY AT THE WORLD FEDERATION OF CHINESE
MEDICINE SOCIETIES
“A breakthrough in herbalism! This book should be in every household.”
CHRISTOPHER VASEY, N.D., AUTHOR OF THE ACID–ALKALINE DIET
AND OPTIMAL DETOX
“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: A GUIDE TO THE
EMERGENCE OF SENSIBLE, COMPREHENSIVE CARE AND BEYOND
THE MEDICAL MELTDOWN: WORKING TOGETHER FOR SUSTAINABLE
HEALTH CARE
“Western medicine needs medical herbalism, and Donnie Yance provides
comprehensive natural medical 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.”
