The format of this book is very clear and concise, the chapters/topics are supported by substantiated scientific research, and the tone is serious but not too formal. The book opens with a brief introduction to herbal medicine and a background of naturopathic medicine. It swiftly moves to a explanation of the body's biochemistry and factors which enhance and detract from sexual enjoyment. The next chapters detail specific herbs which have been shown to enhance sexual function. Some herbs such as the ginsengs augment the body's natural adaptogenic response to stress. Ginkgo enhances microcirculation thereby producing
improved blood flow to the sexual organs. Wild oats directly affect the libido and yohimbe is useful for erectile dysfunction. The next section titled "Especially for Men" tackles such nagging men's problems such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and the sometimes concomitant erectile dysfunction. It explains why nutrients such as zinc are essential, while beer may have a detrimental effect for sufferers of BPH. The oft-touted saw palmetto's pharmacology is explained here as wel of the benefit for its combination with other herbs such as pygeum a nd stinging nettles. "Especially for Women" addresses specific issues that women face, particularly those caused by hormonal fluctuations. It explains how these hormones affect us and proper balance is of the utmost importance. Dong Quai, Wild Yam, and Black Cohosh are useful for sufferers of PMS as well as post-menopausal women. Additionally, proper diet and lifestyle factors are covered. "Fact or Folklore?" deals with herbs which do not have the same amount of controlled research substantiating their be nefits but, nonetheless, may be of benefit. Ashwaganda is an adaptogen as is ginseng which is common in Ayurvedic medicine, but not very well known in the West. L-Arginine is an amino acid which dilates the blood vessels by production of Nitric Oxide. This is the same mechanism upon which the science of Viagra is based. "Buyer Beware" mentions supplements which should not be taken because of their potential health risks which greatly outweight their minimal-to-nil benefits. "Everyday choices for better sex" details lifestyle choices which are beneficial to health in general and sexual health in particular. This chapter also mentions several foods which have purported aphrodisiac properties. The book ends with two helpful appendices which help the consumer to know where and how to purchase appropriate herbal remedies and also where to look for further information regarding naturopathy and herbal medicine. The glossary contains a list and description of helpful terms and facts which are helpful better to understand the book and health in general. Overall, I feel that this book its very faithful and appropriate to its subject and would recommend it to anyone interested in an overview of natural ways to improve sexual health, functioning, and enjoyment. Check i t out, if you can!
