This comprehensive, fully revised and expanded 2nd Edition of Clinical Botanical Medicine provides clinicians with updated practical information on a broad range of diseases and conditions for which botanical medicine is effective. Special attention is given to toxicity and drug-herb interactions to ensure that the clinician is fully informed about the safety and efficacy of each botanical. Clinical Botanical Medicine, 2nd Edition discusses the interactions between the human body, pharmaceutical drugs, and plants and explores the multifaceted nature of botanical medicine. The book is comprised of revised and updated articles published over the years in Alternative and Complementary Therapies which illustrate the depth and complexity of botanical medicine s role in healing, and demonstrate how our western science-based understanding of herbs can benefit from acknowledging an approach that treats herbs as a whole, living part of healing.

This updated edition of Clinical Botanical Medicine is an excellent resource for clinicians who use botanical medicines in their practice. It delivers a rational, reliable, and informative approach to the use of phytomedicine. Unlike many herb books in the marketplace, this text is written by experienced practitioners who provide insightful clinical pearls, as well as citing relevant scientific studies. I highly recommend this book for any student, teacher, or clinician who wants to dive more deeply into the complex and fascinating world of herbal therapeutics. --Tieraona Low Dog, MD Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine University of Arizona Health Sciences Center
Having known all three of the authors of the first edition, of which I thought very highly, I welcome this new and revised edition of Clinical Botanical Medicine. The book contains much positive news for botanical medicine and supplements and provides a comprehensive update on the use of herbal alternatives in health and healing. --James A. Duke, PhD (Botany)
This book is outstanding, and a welcome addition to library of any medical doctor using herbs clinically in their practice. The authors have assiduously scoured the peer reviewed medical literature, incorporating detailed information in a fastidious manner, allowing the reader to reliably grasp subtle details of the complex subject matter. In the very near future, I anticipate that more physicians will incorporate botanicals into their clinical prescribing, and this book will serve as an extremely useful reference. --Robert A.
