“Dr. Frawley and Dr. Lad have made a truly powerful contribution to alternative, natural health care by their creation of this important book. This book... will serve not only to make Ayurvedic medicine of greater practical value to Westerners but, in fact, ultimately advance the whole system of Western herbalism forward into greater effectiveness. I think anyone interested in herbs should closely study this book whether their interests lie in Western herbology, traditional Chinese herbology or in Ayurvedic medicine.” Michael Tierra, Author, The Way of Herbs
