Published by the American Botanical Council (ABC), the book contains comprehensive, scientifically based information on 29 herbs and 13 proprietary herbal products. The reference is also the first of its kind to include a continuing education module for a wide variety of healthcare professionals. Each herb analysis includes an extensively referenced therapeutic Monograph, a two-page Clinical Overview for quick reference, and a one-page Patient Information Sheet for the health professional to copy and give to patients. Pharmacological activity, herb-drug interactions, adverse effects, preparations, dosage, name brands, regulations, and detailed tables of clinical studies, are all accurately presented in this important educational guidebook.
