A full-color insert provides photos of herbs covered in the text in their natural settings.
Case studies prepare you for patient counseling in clinical practice.
Review questions, similar to those on national board exams, allow trainees to evaluate learning and identify areas for further study, with answers provided at the back of the book.
A section on herbal therapies with limited evidence includes information on widely used products which lack scientific evidence to support use.
Dosing information provided for adults and children.
Integrative therapy plans help quickly assess patient needs and create cohesive treatment plans considering all therapeutic options.
