Review:

"This is an excellent, and incredibly detailed book... The blend of modern research and ancient wisdom harmoniously work, demonstrating that herbal medicine is both the oldest medical system in the world and more recently becoming scientifically validated." 'Health Matters' on Swindon 105.5, 2009

"Herbal medicines are being taken mostly by women, often for gynaecological problems. Therefore this is potentially an important book. It starts with some general issues related to herbal medicine and then focuses in its main part on women’s health. The book is written by several US authors and is firmly rooted in traditional herbalism, which is very different from the scientific approach to herbalism FACT readers might be used to." Botanical Medicine for Women’s Health. January 2010
