A symbiosis of years of experience and current scientific research
The growing demand by patients for herbal medicine over the last decades to treat and prevent illness has made it increasingly important for clinicians to become familiar with such herbal remedies.
The third edition of Herbal Medicine is the definitive work for clinicians currently using or seeking to implement herbal medicine, or phytotherapy, in their daily practice. The work is organized into eleven disease categories with specific indications for therapy. Detailed guidelines for the application and preparation of herbal remedies, a hallmark of all previous editions, have been enhanced in this new edition.
First published in 1960 by Rudolf Weiss and later coauthored with Volker Fintelmann, both of whom were appointed members of the landmark German Commission E, the work undertakes a critical appraisal of age-old and new remedies, and their utility in the spectrum of total patient care. The more recent addition of Kenny Kuchta to the authorship brings a valuable scientific pharmaceutical perspective to this classic work.
Highlights of the third edition include:
- Updated throughout with results of latest research
- Quick access to required information through logical organization by organ structure and disorder
- New contents on kava and nicotine dependence, and additional medicinal plants
- Practical advice on the contraindications and interactions for each remedy
- Reference tables searchable by herb or disorder—ideal for everyday practice
- An introduction to plant morphology with over 100 color photographs of medical plants
This third edition of Herbal Medicine is a practical, clinically oriented guide to the modern field of phytotherapy. Filled with insights and tips from international experts in herbal medicine, this edition earns an essential place in the libraries of both experienced practitioners and novices to the field.
