Présentation de l'éditeur

Access to accurate, evidence-based, and clinically relevant information is essential to anyone who uses or recommends herbal products. With input from some of the most respected experts in herbal and integrative medicine, this completely revised edition of the American Herbal Products Association’s Botanical Safety Handbook reviews both traditional knowledge and contemporary research on herbs to provide an authoritative resource on botanical safety. The book covers more than 500 species of herbs and provides a holistic understanding of safety through data compiled from clinical trials, pharmacological and toxicological studies, medical case reports, and historical texts.

For each species, a brief safety summary is provided for quick reference, along with a detailed review of the literature. Easily understood classification systems are used to indicate the safety of each listed species and the potential for the species to interact with drugs.

Enhancements to the Second Edition include:

  • Classification of each herb with both a safety rating and a drug interaction rating
  • More references listed for each individual herb, vetted for accuracy
  • Specific information on adverse events reported in clinical trials or case reports
  • Safety-related pharmacology and pharmacokinetics of each herb, including drug interactions
  • Additional information on the use of herbs by pregnant or lactating women
  • Toxicological studies and data on toxic compounds

Representing the core of the botanical trade and comprising the finest growers, processors, manufacturers, and marketers of herbal products, the mission of the AHPA is to promote the responsible commerce of herbal products. The American Herbal Products Association Botanical Safety Handbook, Second Edition ensures that this vision is attained. The book will be a valuable reference for product manufacturers, healthcare practitioners, regulatory agencies, researchers, and consumers of herbal products.

Unlike a lot of botanical safety handbooks, this one isn't written by phytopharmaceutical researchers only, or hands-on practitioners only, medical anthropologists only -- or, heaven forbid, science journalists only -- but by a true international dream team. Almost a decade in the making, this massive tome is simply a monumental, towering unparalleled achievement. Understand, we're not just reprinting the same old stuff here, but going back to primary sources and validating everything. Those looking for a quick a decisive answer -- a simple "green light" or "red light" -- will be frustrated, as the book acknowledges and delves into nuance and uncertainty. But when all is said and done, you walk away knowing where the nuances and uncertainties come from, armed with the tools to make an informed decision.

Take for example, the section on Echinacea. We get to see where we're looking at E. purpurea, E. angustofolia, etc.; aerial parts vs. seeds vs. root; hydroethanolic extract vs. fresh expressed juice vs. crude plant material... And when the question is raised of its suitability in autoimmune disease (controversial to this day, and as of yet, not settled in the scientific literature), we get a survey of a few dozen experienced herbal practitioners to supplement the formal research record.

Warning: this book can be frightening in the hands of those unschooled in medical terminology, and scientific phrasing in regards to uncertainty, as there is no herb that is portrayed as completely, unequivocally safe.

The American Herbal Products Association Botanical Safety Handbook stands as a towering achievement in the field of botanical medicine. Never before has so much science, traditional use, and all forms of safety and toxicity information been assembled in one reference. In the ever-evolving field of botanical medicine, which involves a broad range of disciplines, this handbook can be of inestimable value to all sectors. Years in the making, drawing upon exhaustive resources from all over the globe, the Botanical Safety Handbook is a must-have reference for any credible medicinal botanical book collection. This guide puts at your fingertips the distillation of libraries worth of knowledge. I can't recommend it highly enough. - Chris Kilham, Medicine Hunter

Safety should come before anything else when dealing with medicinal plants, and this book assures that the practicing herbalist is well armed in that area. Well written and organized.

This is a great book to cross reference with any other books on herbs...it goes further to tell you any adverse side effects with herbs used with new medicines...this is not a stand alone book, but definitely a book to have if you are using, selling, or studying herbs....

Par Botanical Toxicologist - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Generally the book lacks focus on evidence of safety and places too much weight on history of use and lack of adverse events. The book should clearly identify areas with lack of evidence rather than hand waving. Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence, is the phrase that comes to mind. History of use can only be applied if current use is the same. Historically no one takes potent pills in combination with dozens of other herbs. Historical environmental exposure and concomitant use are not considered. The book does not establish traditional safety end points or estimate margins of exposure. Nor is there clear description of the types of botanical under consideration, often aq vs ethanol extract have different toxicities. The book is written for lay persons and without proper background can be misleading. References need to be reduced to only include key endpoints rather then attempting a ingredient review. Unknown does not equal non-known. "The dose makes the poison", safe dose/exposure are not quantified. Need to add a few toxicologist to the next version. A good start.
