For centuries, Pacific Islanders have used Piper methysticum – the Kava plant – for healing, religious ritual, and relaxation. Now Westerners are discovering the calming, centering effects of the plant, and Kava potions are served at many health clubs and coffee-houses. Kava is rapidly becoming a healthy, natural alternative to alcohol and tranquilizers, and a welcome addition to social gatherings or spiritual circles.

Kava-Kava is an in-depth look at the history, botany, chemistry, culture, and use of the Kava plant. Filled with rare illustrations and photographs, the book examines how the Pacific Islands’ native peoples grew and processed the plant, how it’s used in both traditional and contemporary beverages, and how its unique properties affect the human body and mind.

Kava-Kava explores the increasing interest in its use as an alternative to alcohol. Users report that kava drinking reduces alcohol intake, resulting in weight loss, gains in strength, better sleep and health in general. Kava has anti-anxiety properties that help fight stress and promote sleep.

Kava-Kava is built upon the Dutch botanist, Dr. E.F. Steinmetz's classic early pamphlet, Kava-Kava: Famous Drug Plant of the South Sea Islands with addition of considerable new information about health, social, and spiritual uses. A fact-filled look at this fascinating plant, Kava-Kava belongs in the library of anyone interested in intoxicants, herbal medicine, or shamanistic practices.
