Overview

Looking for a beautiful coffee table book that also contains a wealth of information about natural medicine? Look no further than this book from National Geographic. Filled with high-quality phots, Nature's Medicine: Plants That Heal includes information about and history of traditional medicine from nearly all corners of the world. Many alternative healers in the United States are profiled, including James Duke and Andrew Weil.

In one of the book's most interesting photos, a woman in a Traditional Chinese Medicine hospital in Beijing is undergoing chemotherapy, while pads on her legs deliver sound therapy and she drinks a cup of watermelon juice for its nutritional benefits. At the same hospital, another photo shows a worker preparing specialized herbal remedies for each patient.

The end of the book includes a section where plants are profiled by Latin name, and intricate drawings of each plant accompany the descriptions.
