Now more than ever, herbal remedies are being used in conjunction with modern medications to treat illness in America—both major and minor. In Bartram's Encyclopedia of Herbal Medicine, author Thomas Bartram has compiled his four decades of experience as an herbalist in a thorough and clear guide that will help readers understand the use and nature of herbal medicine. Including over 900 entries organized in an easy-to-read A–Z listing of remedies and ailments, Bartram's Encyclopedia of Herbal Medicine covers the full spectrum of herbal medicine. Comprehensive coverage of common and rare disorders and their appropriate treatments; the actions, properties, and preparations of herbs, tinctures, and essential oils; an overview of the major discoveries and developments in the history of herbalism, and alternative herbal treatments for many of the current prescription drugs are included. Great for everyday use in minor ailments as well as for more serious illnesses, Bartram's Encyclopedia of Herbal Medicine is an essential resource for all those interested in exploring the natural side of treating disease.
