Book, Kava: The Pacific Elixir


Patrick V. Kirch, University of California, Berkeley

The most comprehensive book ever written on nature's most effective stress-relieving plant.

This complete guide to Kava summarizes the literature and research on a plant that is now considered comparable or superior to anti-stress prescription drugs, and describes its use in the religious, political, and economic life of the Pacific islands for centuries.

Beyond its soporific qualities kava is also used throughout the the Pacific as an analgesic, a diuretic, and an anesthetic. There is even evidence suggesting it is effective in the treatment of asthma, tuberculosis, and venereal disease. Exhaustively researched, Kava: The Pacific Elixir offers an extensive survey of this amazing plant from the perspective of the horticulturist, the ethnobotanist, and the pharmacologist.

First paperback edition of the classic comprehensive text originally published by Yale University Press. Because of its many beneficial qualities that make it superior to other substances that serve to reduce stress and improve mood, interest in kava is growing worldwide.
