How to treat illness and maintain wellness with Chinese herbs. A few of these herbs will be familiar; others are most likely only available in larger metropolitan areas in the western world. Fascinating and useful.
No book/website is truly complete when it comes to herbals, but this book is well- organized, reasonably informative, and profusely photographed.
Healing Arts Press, Rochester, VT. 281 pp. ISBN 0-89281-297-4
More than a bit enthusiastic over the healing powers of herbs, this book is best taken with a few grains of salt. There are color photographs of a fair number of herbs; these are quite good.
Pharmaceutical Products Press, Binghamton, NY 375 pp.,ISBN 1-56024-287-6
This herbal discusses the properties of herbs, taking a look at the folkloric remedies, and mentioning whether scientific evidence has been obtained, or not. He is also very rigorous about discussing contraindications. Highly recommended. One aspect of herbalism that he does not discuss is that some herbs may well take their action via a synergistic combination and interplay of compounds within a given herb.
