Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Mah Hussain-Gambles, University of Leeds, July 2004
"This covenient, pocket-sized handbook provides an ideal tool for quickly gauging the clinical evidence behind a wide range of natural therapies, and enables a rapid assessment of the strength and validity of such evidence. It focuses on the issues most relevant to actual clinical practice, safety and identification of the natural products patients may be using."

James Barlow, Irish Pharmacy Journal, January 2005
"The fact that it lists both US and European formulations that have undergone clinical testing is an additional useful and practice feature. In summary, this text is in fact a comprehensive summary of available herbs and supplements."
