Tracy Gibbs, PhD, has an extensive background in pharmacognosy, the study of medicines derived from natural sources. Gibbs studied chemistry, hematology and botanical medicine in Japan where he received an honorary PhD from the Graduate School of Health Knowledge and Sciences (English name). Gibbs has lectured worldwide on the clinical applications of herbal medicine and operates herbal medicine schools in Japan and the U.S. where students can learn how to use herbs in everyday situations.Review:
Recently there has been a renewed interest by the medical pro- fession into the beneficial effects of natural products and herbs for chronic disease and the prevention thereof. It is estimated that over 80 percent of the world's population relies heavily on natural plant products as medicines and drugs. Half of the top 50 drugs sold in European pharmacies are based on or derived from natural herbs. Perhaps the U.S. market can learn something from Tracy's book. Despite much of our scientific research into natural herbs, our knowledge in how to actually use them on patients remains inadequate. Tracy gives us a guidebook to follow, and perhaps through using his formulas we will come to a better understanding of why and how these "food medicines" really work. -- Dr. Yi-Zhun Zhu, MD (Dean of Pharmacology, Singapore National University)
A book that sets the standard for others to follow does not come around very often. Tracy has accomplished a work that not only is as simple to understand as a common cookbook, but that also advances the understanding of even the most educated herbal- ists and doctors. His common-sense science will help all of us who are doctors remember why we wanted to become doctors in the first place. -- Dr. J. Frederic Templeman, MD
