Until herbalist James Green introduced the principles of The Male Herbal more than 15 years ago, there was virtually no information about using herbs specifically in men's health. With sensitivity toward men's reluctance to focus on health matters, the trusted advice and wisdom is as vital today as it was then. Introducing a new constitutional model, this revised edition provides every man with a personalised plan geared to his individual body type, lifestyle, and needs.
