Weaving together the ancient wisdom of herbalism and the most up-to-date scientific research on cancer, aging, and nutrition, renowned medical herbalist and clinical nutritionist Donald Yance reveals how to master stress, improve energy levels, prevent degenerative disease, and age gracefully with the elite herbs known as adaptogens.
Yance’s holistic approach, called the Eclectic Triphasic Medical System (ETMS), is based on extensive scientific research, more than 25 years of clinical practice, and excellent results with thousands of patients. It centers on four interconnected groups of health tools: botanical formulations, nutritional supplements, diet, and lifestyle. Defining three categories for adaptogenic herbs, he explains how formulations should combine herbs from each category to create a synergistic effect. He provides more than 60 monographs on herbs and nutritional compounds as well as custom combinations to revitalize the immune system, build cardiovascular health, protect brain function, manage weight, and support cancer treatment. He explains the interplay of endocrine health, the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, thyroid function, and stress in the aging process and reveals how adaptogenic treatment begins at the cellular level with the mitochondria–the microscopic energy producers present in every living cell.
Emphasizing spirituality, exercise, and diet in addition to herbal treatments and nutritional supplements, Yance’s complete lifestyle program explores how to enhance energy production in the body and subdue the proinflammatory state that lays the groundwork for nearly every degenerative disease, taking you from merely surviving to thriving.

“Donnie Yance has done it again! Nowhere has such a voluminous and practical assortment of valid information about adaptogens been assembled in such a readable and useful format. I will be using this book in my research, in my daily life, and whenever I have a question about an ingredient I am using.”
“Ancient Wisdom tells us that Adaptogens are the Imperial Herbs, the Jewels in the Golden Cabinet that nourish, replenish, rejuvenate, restore and promote longevity and superior quality of life. There is no one better than Master Herbalist Donnie Yance to teach us how to combine traditional healing wisdom with modern science in the skillful use of these remarkable healing agents. Donnie brings a depth and breadth of knowledge and experience and provides not only an integrated and comprehensive view but also practical applications.”
—Nalini Chilkov L.Ac., O.M.D., Founder, Integrative Cancer Answers
“Donald Yance probably knows more about treating cancer with herbs and alternative therapies and has helped more people with this dreaded disease than any other herbalist in the world. His depth of knowledge, commitment and passion for his work and the people he cares for are legendary. In his new book on Adaptogens, Donald brings the same level of research and detailed clinical insights to this important class of herbs that made his previous book on cancer a classic text.”
—David Winston, RH (AHG), Author of Adaptogens, Herbs for Strength, Stamina and Stress Relief
“Human beings have an incredible capacity for resilience and repair. But too often our modern lives push our bodies to the brink of our repair mechanisms, causing stress, distress, and disrepair. Thriving is a key word that is woven throughout this book. It is a guiding principle that can allow us to move beyond the simple reductionist goal of alleviating symptoms – our own or others – toward living a life of optimal health on all levels – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Adaptogenic herbs, considered elixirs in many traditional cultures, have activities that move us beyond surviving into thriving. Their effects would seem almost unbelievable and magical if there wasn’t such strong science to back them up. They are, perhaps, the most important medicines we have for not only surviving, but thriving in this age. Donnie Yance brings these herbs to you through their history, science, and his vast clinical experience, giving you the tools you need to revitalize your life. This is a must read for all of us who want to live up to our optimal capacities and then some!”
—Aviva Romm, MD, Clinical Herbalist, Midwife, Author of Botanical Medicine for Women’s Health
“Donald Yance, has yet again set a benchmark for complementary, botanical medical books. Adaptogens in Medical Herbalism is both thorough and available and it provides clear understandings of the importance of these herbs in health and disease prevention. What distinguishes Donnie’s book from the many available in the field is his grasp of the essential issues and his deep exploration of the resources demonstrated by his faultless referencing. It will become the standard by which future books will be judged.”
—Daniel Weber PhD; MSc, Visiting Professor; Tianjin University, President; Association for Integrative Oncology and Chinese Medicine, Member editorial board; Journal Chinese Integrative Medicine, Vice-Chair Oncology; World Federation of Chinese Medicine Societies
“This is a wonderful, deeply informative, and comprehensive book which I highly recommend to all who are devoted to thriving in today’s world. The role of Adaptogens is often ignored in oncology and in integrative medicine. This book by Master Herbalist Donald Yance restores these elite herbs to their rightful place as the foundation of effective therapy in the toolbox of today’s practitioners and the general public. I strongly recommend Adaptogens in Medical Herbalism to anyone who is devoted to preventing, healing or recovering from a chronic condition. It is my hope and prayer that this book becomes a mainstay in general public education and dialogue, as well as in integrative medicine and integrative oncology.”
