Beschreibung

A doctor of pharmacology examines the healing properties and immune-boosting power of vitalizing plant substances, including ginseng, that have been valued in Chinese medicine for thousands of years.

Stephen Fulder holds degrees in biochemistry and chemical pharmacology from Oxford University, and a Ph.D. in genetics from the National Institute of Medical Reseach in London. He is also the author of Garlic: Nature's Original Remedy.

"Fulder's firsthand experimentation with ginseng, as well as his exposure to doctors, herbalists, and healers around the world as he conducted his early research, make for engrossing reading. Anyone interested in using ginseng for any purpose will find this book indispensable." --The Herb Companion
