In my interest in learning and understanding the medicinal qualities and uses of herbs for my own personal use (and without any formal medical training), I've purchased many books on 'herbal medicine' and 'homeopathic medicines/remedies'. While there are some good books out there, there is NOTHING I've come across that is as complete as this reference book (4th Edition, 2007).

Some of the most exciting parts of this book for me have been the color photos of the plants (and not just a black and white sketch, or lack thereof, included with some of my other books), the description of the medicinal PARTS of the plant, the pharmacology of plant, and the references (or literature citations) provided that allow me to research further on my own.

This PDR provides you with:

1) An ALPHABETICAL INDEX (in the front): Lists all scientific and common names found in the herbal monographs.

2) THERAPEUTIC CATEGORY INDEX (i.e. acne preparations. migraine preparations, to wound care products): Groups herbs by therapeutic or medicinal category. Listings are alphabetical by category and accepted common name. Herbs deemed effective by Commission E are flagged for quick reference.

3) INDICIATIONS INDEX (i.e. abdominal cramps, relief of flatulance, to superficial wounds): Lists herbs by their primary indications. Entries are alphabetical by indication and accepted common name. Herbs deemed effective by Commission E are specially flagged.

4) HOMEOPATHIC INDICATIONS INDEX(i.e. aches, muscular, induction of sleep, to relief of symptomatic wheezing): Catalogs herbal applications in homepathy. Entries are alphabetical by indication and scientific name.

5) ASIAN INDICATIONS INDEX: Groups herbs by their thereuptic uses in Chinese and Indian medicine.

This is a great book, exhaustive and full of information. It can be easily read and understood by medical doctors. The information included are clearly presentred, including reports from trials and preparation methods. It also includes indications according to commision E (which is not FDA or EMEA, but they try to do something equivalent).

This book is not intended for herbalists or people who practice herbalism! The language is different. This book is intended for physicians who would like to learn some basic stuff about herbs and maybe try to use them somehow. But remember, this is a reference book!

While the content of the book is great (good reference guide), the materials its made out of are a joke. I buy books for life, this book will last a few years at best. Given its cost, I am considering returning it and finding a digital copy. I love to have quality hard copy books in my personal library, but this is made from some cardboardish material, and the pages are newsprint. The ink smears if your hands arent bone dry. THe pages tear VERY EASILY as you turn pages. The quality of production is very poor, and in no way justifies the price. FAIL.

This book is great for anyone interested in medicine, in herbs, or in holistic healing. There is so much to know about even the weeds in our yards. I got this book because I needed relief from heavy menstrual periods and wanted to see what herbal remedies were available that the FDA finds safe. All these herbs have been tested, and the results and chemical properties are all listed here in this book. SO WORTH THE PRICE! I found an herb called shepherds purse that grows all over my yard, it ended up being just what I needed. This book is awesome.

I like this book as it give up-to-date information on what herbs are used to treat what condition. This book should be in every physician's office and used as a PRIMARY resource before getting out the scrip pad. Many Herbs are as effective at treating conditions as prescribed medications, but without the toxicity and side effects.

Had one before and loaned it to someone who must have really liked it because it never came home. Very comprehensive book with some scientific evidence thrown in to the homeopathic idea. Good all around reference.

Very comprehensive, but omits some obvious, common herbs. Some preparations are of limited use; not describing all use preparation.

I do alternative allergy testing for many veterinarians and many are now getting on the "herbal" bandwagon in the past number of years, things that some of us have known about and have been using since the 1970's. What many do not know is that there are certain herbs that do not mix or have a diluting effect on pharma meds. This is a great way to show them in black and white why certain things should be used with caution. It is also great for people who are not that familiar, walk into a health food store and buy things off the shelf again not knowing certain herbs and medications do not mix. If you are a DIY herbal person without a degree in herbs, useful purchase.
