An herbalist and regular columnist of Natural Health magazine, Vukovic provides a step-by-step guide for creating natural herbal tinctures, salves, and tonics to treat conditions from which women over 40 commonly suffer, such as menopause, mood swings, osteoporosis, insomnia, fibrocystic breasts, lack of energy, high blood pressure, diabetes, and varicose veins. She also recommends exercise, massage, aromatherapy, meditation, and other bodywork techniques to ease the health problems many women experience at mid-life. The result is a very informative and readable book. Recommended for larger public libraries and any alternative-medicine collection.--Lily Liu, Arkansas Children's Hosp.
