From the Back Cover
Herbal medicine, an ancient form of medicine using herbs and plants, is enjoying a modern-day revival. 'The Complete Guide to Modern Herbalism' is based on the practical experience and wisdom of those who have spent their lives proving the benefits of the use of herbs. This indispensable guide is a valuable book for both the professional and general reader.
A world-renowned authority on herbalism, Simon Mills studied the medical sciences at the University of Cambridge and trained at the National Institute of Medical Herbalists. He is the Joint Director of the Centre for Complementary Health Studies at the University of Exeter, a council member of the British Herbal Medicine Association, former president of the National Institute of Medicinal Herbalists, and involved in numerous other organisations promoting the research and preservation of medicinal plants. He has published several books on alternative medicine.
"Simon Mills' book is a valuable addition to modern herbal literature. It is written with an understanding of modern biomedicine while retaining links to the ancient herbal traditions."
TED KAPTCHUK, 'OMD', author of 'Chinese Medicine: The Web that has no Weaver'
"This valuable reference work puts the herbal world deeply in Simon Mills' debt. Not only is it a practitioner's careful account of the dozens of herbs he uses: it is also a comprehensive and lucid introduction to the philosophical framework within which modern Anglo-American herbalism approaches health-care."
BARBARA GRIGGS, author of 'Green Pharmacy'
