Su­per­herbs: The best adap­to­gens to re­duce stress and im­prove health, beauty and well­ness, by Rachel Lan­don, €10.87 Are the stresses of life catch­ing up with you? This book ex­plains how na­ture’s su­per­herbs, called adap­to­gens, help the body re­bal­ance and “adapt” to the stresses of life, whether emo­tional, en­vi­ron­men­tal or im­mune re­lated. The au­thor, who is a herbal­ist, ex­plains how she fol­lowed the path of nat­u­ral heal­ing through plants af­ter her own body went amok. Go­ing back to the roots of her child­hood, where she learned from her mother about na­ture’s bounty – such as how dock leaves eased her net­tle stings – she found health again through ex­plor­ing the use of herbs. Su­per­herbs such as turmeric do more than de­liver vi­ta­mins and nu­tri­tion, she ar­gues; they help to im­prove over­all health to bring the body back to equi­lib­rium.
