Medicinal Herbs Book Review:

Know which botanical medicines are effective—and which to avoid—in an instant Medicinal Herbs: A Compendium contains the profiles of about 200 important and commonly used medicinal herbs. This short, concise resource is translated, complete revised, and updated from the German compendium Arzneidrogenprofile (2000) and was largely edited by the late Varro E. Tyler before his death in 2001. With this guide, pharmacists and health practitioners will be able to quickly find information on medicinal plants and directions for their use. This compendium incorporates important botanicals from both European pharmacognosy and the North American medicinal herb market. Designed originally for pharmacists who need a succinct, easy-to-use manual for every day use, Medicinal Herbs can also benefit pharmacognosists, physicians specializing in natural treatments, midwives, physiotherapists, herbalists, and students of these disciplines. Included in the text are two tables for the medicinal plants—an English-to-Latin binomial list and a Latin binomial-to-English list—allowing readers who are not as familiar with English to more easily find what they need. Each herb’s profile in Medicinal Herbs has its own page which lists: its English name and Latin binomial the parts of the plant used for treatment areas of applications—what ailments are indicated and how the herb is to be used dosage for using herbal teas, tinctures, poultices, and more instructions for the duration of application and when to contact a medical practitioner comments on the use of the herb, its efficiency and safety, and any traditions or folklore on that herb contraindications—when not to use the herb adverse effects interactions with other drugs

Handbook of African Medicinal Plants Second Edition Book Review:

With over 50,000 distinct species in sub-Saharan Africa alone, the African continent is endowed with an enormous wealth of plant resources. While more than 25 percent of known species have been used for several centuries in traditional African medicine for the prevention and treatment of diseases, Africa remains a minor player in the global natural products market largely due to lack of practical information. This updated and expanded second edition of the Handbook of African Medicinal Plants provides a comprehensive review of more than 2,000 species of plants employed in indigenous African medicine, with full-color photographs and references from over 1,100 publications. The first part of the book contains a catalog of the plants used as ingredients for the preparation of traditional remedies, including their medicinal uses and the parts of the plant used. This is followed by a pharmacognostical profile of 170 of the major herbs, with a brief description of the diagnostic features of the leaves, flowers, and fruits and monographs with botanical names, common names, synonyms, African names, habitat and distribution, ethnomedicinal uses, chemical constituents, and reported pharmacological activity. The second part of the book provides an introduction to African traditional medicine, outlining African cosmology and beliefs as they relate to healing and the use of herbs, health foods, and medicinal plants. This book presents scientific documentation of the correlation between the observed folk use and demonstrable biological activity, as well as the characterized constituents of the plants.

The authors tell you everything you need to know about harvesting, preparing, and administering herbs in many different forms, including fresh, bulk dried herbs, capsules, extracts in water, alcohol, glycerin, vinegar and oil, and even preparations like essential oils and flower essences. The book also covers topical applications of herbs as salves, lotions, poultices, tooth powders, ear drops, and more, and includes an extensive chapter on herbal hydrotherapy.

They lay out the principles of herbal formulation and also provide instructions on how to prepare single herbs, a procedure that has been largely ignored in other references.

Medical Herb Book Book Review:

Medicinal plants are herbal organisms containing substances that can generate therapeutic benefits. According to data collected by the World Health Organization, plants provide the active ingredients and adjuvants used in 25% of existing medicines and over 7,000 medical compounds are derived from plants. Medicinal plants: origins the use of herbal medicines dates back as far as 1500 B.C. when the ancient Egyptians used medicinal herbs such as myrrh, ivy and marjoram. The first well-organized medical treatises on the benefits of plants, on the other hand, are due to the Greek Hippocrates, in the fifth century BC, who took up the recipes and findings of Heracles and Celsus, his predecessors. The Romans, starting from the first century AD, promoted the cultivation of medical gardens, i.e. gardens dedicated to hosting medicinal plants. The first pharmacopoeia, with precise recipes, also in relation to chemical compositions, is due to the Arab civilization that also promoted the use of tinctures and distillates. For this reason we have decided to propose a new "shortened" list focused on the 150 most used medical plants. The criterion we have used in our definition of "medicinal plants" includes: plants and shrubs, also with berries, edible flowers or with curative properties and roots.
