Amazon.com Review "There's a lot of confusion on the subject of herbal medicine," says Logan Chamberlain, Ph.D., president of Herb Companion Press, publisher of Herbs for Health, and host of the nationally syndicated radio program "Herbs and Your Health." Fortunately, for the millions of Americans who want to take advantage of herbs like garlic, ginkgo, and echinacea but are confused by the glut of supplements on the market, Chamberlain's written What the Labels Won't Tell You. Chamberlain does much more than explain how to decode complicated labels. He reveals how supplements are made and regulated and gives suggestions for getting started with herbal wellness in a conservative, safe, and responsible way. There are also chapters on herbal supplements for men and women as well as a section on using herbs to avoid serious medical conditions such as hypertension and high cholesterol. This slim guide is packed with all the information you need to sort through the maze of herbal remedies and emerge healthier and empowered to take charge of your health. --Ellen Albertson About the Author Logan Chamberlain, PhD is publisher of Herbs for Health, Herb Companion, and hosts a weekly radio show, the Herbs and Health radio show. He is co-chairman of the NNFA, and holds his PhD from Colorado State University.

Most helpful customer reviews 3 of 5 people found the following review helpful. Don't waste your money By Analise This is quite possibly the worst book on holistic health I have ever read (and I have read quite a few). I am a strong believer in natural healing but this book is the stuff of charlatans and snake-oil salesman. Don't waste your money. I wish I didn't. See all 1 customer reviews...
