SHILAJIT by Wolfgang Windmann

by: Wolfgang Windmann

I must admit that I hadn’t heard of Shilajit before I received this book, but it’s published by Earthdancer, a well-established and trusted alternative publisher of books usually translated from German, and that led me to read the book much more thoroughly. It’s a resinous substance that oozes out of the rocks and is mainly found in the Himalayas. There is a long tradition of its use in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine as well as in Russian folk medicine. It is widely available though in this country. The book is short but deeply researched and is packed with diagrams and photos of Shilajit in its natural state. It’s a well-known adaptogen that contains many antioxidant, cell-protecting and vitalizing components, and the author has more than thirty years’ experience with it.
