Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Principles and Practice of Phytotherapy (Hardcover)
Having just completed the A. Vogel course in Phytotherapy,
I wanted to learn more.
I came across this book on an internet search, and decided to purchase it
It is absolutly brilliant.
Its not just another this herbal medicine for this or that herbal medicine for that...
It gives the history, and principals on how herbal medicines work, in plain english.
even better is it gives a monograph of many herbal medicines, including contrindications, but with chemical diagrams
using the following headings:
what is it?,
can be used for,
may also be used for,
duration of use,
summary assessment of safety,
current regulatory status in selected countries
A thorough explanation, in plain english
I have paid more for books with less detail than this, and in fact it contains
all the information of three other books I had purchased.
If I want to check out any given herbal medicine, this is the one stop book!!!
All healthfood stores should have a copy of this.
