Since the Medicines Act 1968 the herbal renaissance of the past three decades has raised the standing of the Consulting Medical Herbalist to that of a professional in private practice, the need has been felt for a comprehensive "A to Z" of diseases and corresponding treatments - whether primary or supportive to general medicine. This closely factual definitive work seeks to meet that need.
This book offers no miracle cures, but a realistic approach to human disease. It should be received with enthusiasm not only by the 'natural-health' community, but by the medical and para-medical professions. It reveals new discoveries in the area of plant medicines and describes alternatives to some of the deep-acting drugs of our day and generation.
Doubtless this book will be read in communities beyond the reach of modern pharmacy and those who still rely on the native medicines of their ancestors. It is believed that treatments described herein will prove value beyond the United Kingdom, meeting some of the needs of other peoples of the world - East and West.
Invaluable reference book of authoritative information on the herbal treatment of disease.
Over 900 entries of general disease conditions with appropriate herbal treatment.
