This unique, clinical reference features comprehensive and detailed profiles of 50 key herbs used in Ayurvedic medicine.

  • Full-color illustrations of each herb offer cues for visual recognition of the plant.
  • Safety considerations enable readers to apply theoretical knowledge to clinical practice, including toxicity data on certain herbs.
  • Primary sources are well-referenced throughout the book, highlighting original, authentic research and scientific findings.
