Healing with herbs has long been a tradition in the martial arts. This book investigates sixty-four herbs that are readily available in North America and Europe. For each herb it discusses the evidence for its effectiveness, the evidence for its safety, and how specifically to use it to enhance martial arts and contact sports training. Even the beginner will be able to choose an herb to meet a specific training need, purchase a good quality portion of that herb, prepare it, and use it safely.
