Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Charles N. Shapiro, BA, BSN (Michael Schachter & Assoc)
Description: This book on medicinal mints is divided into two parts. The first part contains listings of nontypical phytochemicals found in each plant. The second part contains the associated biological activity of the aromathematics species and known medicinal activity. The sources for chemical and biological activity are quality scientific references.
Purpose: The data are presented to help the user select the most effective medicinal mint plant for a diagnostic condition with an understanding of the other known chemical constituents of the selected plant.
Audience: The primary audience is the advanced researcher or clinician interested in phytopharmacology and/or activity of specific phytochemical constituents. Homeopaths, herbalists, and phytochemical prescribers will find the book a valuable reference. The authors' educational backgrounds and naturalistic proclivity expertly qualify them to author the book.
Features: The book is one of the first modern high-quality phytochemical works to contain a scientific and whole plant pharmacology approach. Lacking is a quick reference index by diagnostic condition for clinical use.
Assessment: Any other work by the authors on medicinal plant species by family would be a welcome addition to the clinical and research fields.
