About the Author
David Hoffmann, FNIMH, AHG, has been a clinical medical herbalist since 1979. A Fellow of Britain's National Institute of Medical Herbalists, he is one of the founding members of the American Herbalists Guild and the author of 17 books, including Medical Herbalism, The Complete Illustrated Holistic Herbal, and The Herbal Handbook. He teaches herbal medicine throughout the English-speaking world and lives in California.
"Medical statistics clearly show that Americans are the most heavily medicated people in the world. In spite of this (or possibly because of this) we rank far below many other first world countries in life expectancy and far above in cancer rates, levels of obesity, and many other chronic degenerative diseases.

As our population ages many more people are realizing that in order to stay healthy into old age we need to become proactive, improving our diets and lifestyle choices, reducing stress, and becoming more knowledgeable about our health and medicine. One way we can help to prevent disease and enhance wellness is the intelligent use of herbs.

Because few Americans grew up using plants as medicine, educating oneself as to their safe and rational use is essential. With so many books, websites, and magazines publishing information on herbs and natural health, how does one discern accurate information from the fraudulent? One answer is David Hoffmann's new book, Herbs for Healthy Aging.

Hoffmann is one of the Western world's most respected clinical herbalists, and he offers the reader safe, effective, and relevant treatments for many of the ills that come with increasing age. If you want to prevent senior moments, menopausal symptoms, prostatic enlargement, and circulatory problems, some of the answers you are seeking can be found within these pages."--David Winston, RH(AHG), author of Adaptogens: Herbs for Strength, Stamina, and Stress Relief
"Herbal medicine can be as simple as brewing a pot of tea. However, knowing which herbs to use and how to use them requires experience, which Hoffmann amply provides. Herbs for Healthy Aging gives authoritative answers to most of the commonly asked questions about when and how to use herbs medicinally."--Natural Health
"Herbs for Healthy Aging is an invaluable resource."--Gail Johnson, Alive Magazine, August 2014
