This is the herbal book for insomniacs! It is so comprehensive and definitely needed, as there is no other book like it. I love the way Christine has written with such apparent ease, in a straightforward and accessible way. It is clear that this is the hand of an experienced practitioner with many years of treating sleep problems, especially as she adeptly addresses the underlying causes of sleep problems and does not simply describe symptomatic treatment. A valiant task perfectly fitting such an important subject, as sleep truly is the elixir of life!

This book takes a long thoughtful look at the range of ways natural treatments - herbal medicines in particular - can promote better sleep. Avoiding the overly simple idea that sedatives work best for disordered sleep, this book provides a wealth of useful information, both for those seeking a better night's sleep, and natural medicine practitioners looking for new ideas. Recommended.

This book reminds us that sleep is at the very heart of our overall health. Christine Herbert’s experience through many years of working as a medical herbalist makes the reader feel they are definitely in the right hands on this subject. The in-depth information that covers all the principle underlying health issues related to sleep problems is extremely well laid out and easy to understand. The case studies woven throughout the book really help to highlight Christine’s practical and effective approach and make her suggestions accessible. The Materia medica like the rest of the book is in-depth and yet simply and clearly presented and I loved having some recipes and dietary information too. Nothing has been left out of this much needed book. I am very happy to finally have an excellent reference book for this very important subject. Thank-you Christine.
