Evidence-Based Herbal Medicine By Michael Rotblatt & Irwin Ziment
The therapeutic effects of herbs are examined here with a critical, scientific, and evidence-based approach. Geared toward physicians advising patients on self-selected herbal remedies, and clinicians looking to incorporate herbs into their formulary, the book covers about 65 herbal medicines, most of them well known.
Not only are Western herbs addressed, but herbs of Chinese, Indian (Ayurvedic), and Mexican provenance. Boxes provide general information at a glance, and bold-faced headings guide readers to specific information on uses, pharmacology, clinical trials, adverse effects, interactions, cautions, preparations and doses, and an extensive bibliography.
The appendix lists sources for information on medicinal herbs.
