Product description


This is a reference book which combines modern medical principles and traditional medicine into a modern philosophy of herbalism. Beginning with human pathology, this book shows how plants act on the body, and how research has demonstrated that herbs are viable medicines in today's scientific climate. A pharmacology describes the active constituents of plants, while a "materia medica" describes over 200 plants and shows how to recognize them, prepare them and use them for healing purposes.
