Clinical Applications of Ayurvedic and Chinese Herbs

Clinical Applications of Ayurvedic and Chinese Herbs

Herbal Medicine is practiced in every country of the world without exception. In fact, the World Health Organisation has estimated that more than 75% of the world's population still use the services of herbalists for the treatment of ill-health.

In response to new pharmacological and clinical information on exotic plants being made available through modern science, western phytotherapists face an important decision: do they ignore this useful information, or do they attempt to incorporate these plants into their daily practice? As global communication reaches new heights, and the stresses of ever-increasing industrialisation create diseases common to all countries, modern phytotherapy must rise to the challenge.

The purpose of this book is to provide comprehensive monographs on important Ayurvedic and Chinese herbs in a form which is suited to the practitioner of western herbal medicine. The monographs emphasize the large body of pharmacological and clinical information which is now available for these plants.

The monographs are intended as a useful tool for students and also for practitioners who wish to extend their therapeutic options.
