Cygnus Star Titles, Spring Review 2023
From ibuprofen to cortisone, anti-inflammatory drugs are now the top-selling pharmaceuticals. But daily use comes with a price: side effects, which can lead to other chronic conditions and further medication. In this practical guide, naturopath Christopher Vasey explores 38 anti-inflammatory herbs, such as laurel, basil and turmeric, as well as other natural substances, such as fish oil. He explains how, like fever, inflammation is a defensive reaction of the body and also carries out a cleansing process, which natural remedies support but drugs can destabilise. He examines many of the most common inflammation-related ailments such as allergies, asthma, arthritis and eczema, and explains which medicinal plant or food supplement is best suited to alleviate unpleasant symptoms while helping the body complete the healing the inflammation was initiated to perform.
