About this book

Introduction

 

The book:

About 30% of all prescriptions issued in the USA, Canada and Europe contain either a herb, a purified extract or an active component derived from herbs. However, medical practitioners are often confused by conflicting information available on the safety and efficacy of herbs; herbal medicines are often co-prescribed without proper attention to adjustment of dosages.

This reference guide treats the subject of herbal medicines in an integrated fashion with reference to pharmacognosy, pharmacology and toxicology. It will help to enable internists, phytotherapists, physicians, healthcare practitioners as well as students to understand why, when and how herbal medicines can be used in the treatment of diseases.

The authors:

The authors are leading American and Italian scientists of Pharmacology and Pharmaceutical Technology who have for a long time researched the application of medicinal plants. They teach at the Universities of Wisconsin, Naples and Perugia.
