Synopsis: The English translation of the current sixth edition of "Lehrbuch der Phytotherapie", this book takes account of present-day research findings in the field of herbal medicine. This new edition has further suggestions for prescriptions, as well as indications for new areas of application. The main part of the book studies the large body of plant drugs, arranged on a basis of clinical diagnoses relating to particular systems - digestive, cardiovascular, respiratory, urinary, nervous, female reproductive, the skin and the eyes. There are separate chapters on influenza and colds, rheumatic conditions, some metabolic and endocrinal disorders, the use of herbal medicine in cancer, the treatment of wounds and other injuries, and the therapeutic use of herbal baths. In every case the relevant plants are discussed, with information on their occurence and botanical features, differentiation from related species, constituents and medicinal actions.
From the Back Cover:
With the new contribution of Dr. Volker Fintelmann, Weiss's classic text on Herbal Medicine has been expanded and refocused to meet the needs of practicing physicians, residents, students, and other clinicians.
Arranged by organ system, the book's clear structure and scientific orientation make the topic of herbal medicine accessible to even the most traditional medical doctor. You will benefit from the newest research, clinical studies, and the pivotal findings of the German Commission E on the efficacy of herbs.
Special features include:
Volker Fintelmann, MD is a licensed doctor of internal medicine and gastroenterology. Former Chairman of the German Commission E, his work focuses on the practical and methodological development of herbal medicine.
Rudolf Fritz Weiss, MD (1895-1991), author of the first edition of HERBAL MEDICINE is highly regarded as the founding father of modern German phytotherapy. He studied botany and medicine at the University of Berlin, qualifying as a doctor in 1922 and subsequently taking additional qualifications in internal medicine. A teaching post in herbal medicine was interrupted by war service as an army doctor, followed by seven years in Russian captivity as a doctor in prisoner-of-war camp hospitals. After retiring from clinical practice in 1961, he devoted his life to the scientific development and acceptance of herbal medicine. Weiss was appointed as a member of the German Commission E in 1978. He was founder and editor of the ZEITSCHRIFT FUER PHYTOTHERAPIE, and lectured on current advances in the subject at the University of Tuebingen.
