From Library Journal The recent public interest in Viagra resulted in a wave of books about impotence, sexuality, and pharmaceutical and natural aphrodisiacs. Meletis, a naturopathic physician who is currently Chief Medical Officer and Dean of Clinical Education of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine, weighs in with alternative medicine's botanical answers to Viagra. In simple language, he explains the physiology of sexuality and how to enhance it by using particular herbs (gingko biloba, ginseng, wild oats, and yohimbe). He carefully distinguishes between folk uses of these plants and published research on the efficacy of each as well as explaining dosages and side effects. The author addresses herbs that support male and female sexuality and warns against harmful substances. He concludes with useful appendixes and a glossary. Unfortunately, Meletis does not footnote or include complete citations for all the clinical research he discusses. However, he does present a balanced, responsible, useful text on a popular subject littered with questionable publications. Recommended for all public libraries and for any library with a consumer health collection.-Mary A. Stout, Pima Community Coll. Lib., Tucson Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc.

This thing works! Susan Pavlovich I really do not know what to expect when I flipped through "Free Naturally Better," but it was not a chemistry lesson! This is the first book that was never explained why stress (and other things!) It's bad for me, and what are the effects on the body than the author, Dr. Meletis, the chemistry of herbs like ginseng and gingko is explained, and because they help with stress in ways that best improve sexual function, and even libido. That's what knocked me - there was a lot of voodoo, but I did used to know the folklore than scientific reasons why they work. I lent my copy to a friend, who later said he was taking gingko for a different reason, but sex was shown some improvement, and this book explains why. The book also tells a lot about how the choices every day our health and our sexual desire, and what to do about it except wear of taking these herbs. There is no shortage of books out there, "how to eat better," but there are some very compelling reasons to put them in the context of our lives together, including sex, even if you're not ready to give up are.
