African Americans, who once relied on home remedies almost exclusively, are again using them to solve everyday health problems.African Herbal Healing explores herbal remedies from the African Diaspora -- from Ghana to the Caribbean to California -- and discusses the history and typical uses of herbs. Included are essays on controlling ones health and information about incense, oils, and vitamins. And there is an overview of social health issues, such as the top ten health-related killers of African Americans, as well as suggestions about ways to live better longer.Written in accessible language with modern sensibilities in mind, this book is a commonsense directory to what African-Americans need to know about self-help health.
