HASH(0x8f098774) étoiles sur 5 A MUST HAVE For Anyone Serious In Understanding Herbal Medicine 3 janvier 2008
Par Myra Benoist - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
In my interest in learning and understanding the medicinal qualities and uses of herbs for my own personal use (and without any formal medical training), I've purchased many books on 'herbal medicine' and 'homeopathic medicines/remedies'. While there are some good books out there, there is NOTHING I've come across that is as complete as this reference book (4th Edition, 2007).

Some of the most exciting parts of this book for me have been the color photos of the plants (and not just a black and white sketch, or lack thereof, included with some of my other books), the description of the medicinal PARTS of the plant, the pharmacology of plant, and the references (or literature citations) provided that allow me to research further on my own.

This PDR provides you with:

1) An ALPHABETICAL INDEX (in the front): Lists all scientific and common names found in the herbal monographs.

2) THERAPEUTIC CATEGORY INDEX (i.e. acne preparations. migraine preparations, to wound care products): Groups herbs by therapeutic or medicinal category. Listings are alphabetical by category and accepted common name. Herbs deemed effective by Commission E are flagged for quick reference.

3) INDICIATIONS INDEX (i.e. abdominal cramps, relief of flatulance, to superficial wounds): Lists herbs by their primary indications. Entries are alphabetical by indication and accepted common name. Herbs deemed effective by Commission E are specially flagged.

4) HOMEOPATHIC INDICATIONS INDEX(i.e. aches, muscular, induction of sleep, to relief of symptomatic wheezing): Catalogs herbal applications in homepathy. Entries are alphabetical by indication and scientific name.

5) ASIAN INDICATIONS INDEX: Groups herbs by their thereuptic uses in Chinese and Indian medicine. Listings are alphabetical by indication and accepted common name, with the scientific name shown in parentheses.

6) SIDE EFFECTS INDEX: Groups herbs by the adverse reactions with which they have been associated. Listings are alphabetical by indication and accepted common name, with the scientific name shown in parentheses.

7) DRUG/HERB INTERACTIONS GUIDE: Lists problem combinations alphabetically by the name of the drug and the name of the interacting herb, and provides a brief description of each combination's potential effect.

8) SAFETY GUIDE: Lists herbs that must be avoided while pregnant or nursing, and herbs that should be used only under professional supervision. Includes scientific and common names.

9) COMMON HERBAL TERMINOLOGY: Provides familiar, as well as less common terms that appear in scientific literature regarding herbal medicines.

10) HERB IDENTIFICATION GUIDE: Permits rapid, positive identification of botanicals. Includes over 300 full-color photos.

11) HERBAL MONOGRAPHS: Profiles of more than 700 medicinal herbs, including description, actions, clinical trials, indications, contraindications, precautions, drug interactions, adverse effects, overdosage, dosage, and literature citations. Organized alphabetically by accepted common name and cross-referenced with scientific name.

12) NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT MONOGRAPHS: Profiles some of the most common supplements, including description, actions, clinical trials, indications, contraindications, precautions, drug interactions, adverse effects, overdosage, dosage, and literature citations. Organized alphabetically by accepted common name.

Anyone serious about learning and understanding the wonderful amd natural healing properties of herbs, NEEDS to include this reference manual in your library. The foreward by David Herber, Professor of Medicine an dPublic Health, Director, UCLA Center for Human Nutrition and UCKA Botanical Research Center, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA) explains it all.

I hope this book is as helpful for you as it has been for me.

In response to post dated September 10, 2008, I'd like to add that this book is 'exhaustive and informative, as well as a reference' as stated by another customer and yes, not all herbs are FDA 'approved', but they have been around and used effectively a lot longer than synthetic versions created by pharmaceutical companies. Which, by the way, also have to go through clinical trials, but generally don't have the same long-term usage data as herbs. Secondly, physicians also use a PDR for prescription drugs based on the same information provided in this publication. It is up to the healer (doctor or herbalist) to use common sense and continued education, as well as an informed patient, to decide on the best treatment for an ailment. Further research by both parties is always recommended.

HASH(0x8f0984bc) étoiles sur 5 Perfect, but NOT for herbalists 10 septembre 2008
Par S. Padazis - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This is a great book, exhaustive and full of information. It can be easily read and understood by medical doctors. The information included are clearly presentred, including reports from trials and preparation methods. It also includes indications according to commision E (which is not FDA or EMEA, but they try to do something equivalent).

This book is not intended for herbalists or people who practice herbalism! The language is different. This book is intended for physicians who would like to learn some basic stuff about herbs and maybe try to use them somehow. But remember, this is a reference book!

HASH(0x8f098570) étoiles sur 5 Longevity is not its best quality 26 février 2010
Par Metalstar - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
While the content of the book is great (good reference guide), the materials its made out of are a joke. I buy books for life, this book will last a few years at best. Given its cost, I am considering returning it and finding a digital copy. I love to have quality hard copy books in my personal library, but this is made from some cardboardish material, and the pages are newsprint. The ink smears if your hands arent bone dry. THe pages tear VERY EASILY as you turn pages. The quality of production is very poor, and in no way justifies the price. FAIL.

HASH(0x8f098654) étoiles sur 5 So much to know 14 mai 2013
Par Vickiauntmick - Publié sur

This book is great for anyone interested in medicine, in herbs, or in holistic healing. There is so much to know about even the weeds in our yards. I got this book because I needed relief from heavy menstrual periods and wanted to see what herbal remedies were available that the FDA finds safe. All these herbs have been tested, and the results and chemical properties are all listed here in this book. SO WORTH THE PRICE! I found an herb called shepherds purse that grows all over my yard, it ended up being just what I needed. This book is awesome.

HASH(0x8f098ae0) étoiles sur 5 Excellent Resource 5 décembre 2014
Par Mower of Mutts - Publié sur

I do alternative allergy testing for many veterinarians and many are now getting on the "herbal" bandwagon in the past number of years, things that some of us have known about and have been using since the 1970's. What many do not know is that there are certain herbs that do not mix or have a diluting effect on pharma meds. This is a great way to show them in black and white why certain things should be used with caution. It is also great for people who are not that familiar, walk into a health food store and buy things off the shelf again not knowing certain herbs and medications do not mix. If you are a DIY herbal person without a degree in herbs, useful purchase.
