This convenient pocket guide covers the essentials of herbal and supplement therapy by combining the traditional and scientific approaches to these popular treatment options. The authors of this book are respected experts from both fields: Merrily Kuhn holds a PhD in physiology and is the author of two pharmacology textbooks; and David Winston, RH (AHG), is a noted traditional herbalist who shares the knowledge of Native American heritage and his expertise as an ethnobotanist, author, and teacher. Together, these renowned professionals bring you the most up-to-date information on increasingly popular herbal therapies and supplements!
Winston & Kuhn's Herbal Therapy & Supplements, 2nd Edition covers in detail 115 herbal remedies commonly used in the United States and Canada, as well as 14 nutritional supplements. Each monograph provides information on pharmacology; traditional and current uses; side effects; contraindications and toxicities; long-term safety; use in pregnancy/lactation/children; and a bibliography listing research and references for the herb or supplement. Three appendices give you additional references and more details on the use of herbs and supplements in certain conditions and diseases.
