Amazing Book--Highly Recommended--A Must Read
This book gives endepth information on herbs for healing. He gives what it is ,therapeutic uses, medicinal uses, dosage options, safety rating and precautions. Having read twenty books on herbs this one is THE BEST I've read. Herbs and their uses don't change. Scientific studies should be used to evaluate herbs only if they are scientifically significant. The study also has to use a large enough sample for it to be valid. Age has taught me that health recommendations change with the "newest" study and then switch back when that study is shown to be not valid.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

good general reference but a little dated
I found the book to be a good general reference source but some of the information seemed dated. For example, further research on St. John's Wart, revealed it doesn't act somuch as MAO inhibitors as SSRI. Also, the section regarding the HRT for menopause, where he states the research that traditional HRT did protect women from heart disease whereas the recent research concluded it raised the heart disease rate. I was also disappointed that the book didn't include enough about specific information regarding some contraindications, I'm familiar with the past case history where Kava caused some side effects of scaly skin and possible liver damage. Though it may not be common, the author should have included some of these information.
