The new green pharmacy by Jill Eisen( Recording )

"Herbal remedies have been used for centuries to treat conditions of the mind and the body. With the rise of modern medicine, herbal treatments as folk medicine had largely disappeared. But today people are taking charge of their own health. Herbal remedies have moved from the back shelves of health food stores to become big business. Critics see this as a resurgence of the snake-oil salesman; others as a much needed alternative to prescription drugs."--Website
