Book Description

Aug. 1 2011
A Guide to Understanding Herbal Medicines - and Surviving the Coming Pharmaceutical Monopoly is the culmination of Dr. Michael Farley's 30+ years of practicing medicine as well as the knowledge gained from his Native American heritage. Herbal medicines have stood the test of time and many of them grow right in your backyard. For thousands of years, civilizations have flourished using herbal remedies to treat common ailments, diseases, and injuries. Medicinal herbs can supply us with everything we need to cure our ailments, treating everything from arthritis, to bacterial infections, to diarrhea, to depression. If you don't know anything about medicinal herbs, no worries. That's the purpose of this book -- to educate. Presented in this book are many of the chemical constituents that exist in each herb. These constituents represent only a small percentage of phytochemicals found in each plant. Many herbs have well over 500 chemical constituents in them. To have listed them all would be an encyclopedia type task for both the writer and reader. However, the authors (Dr. Michael Farley, ND and Ty Bollinger) have tried to list the chemicals which, to date, seem to be the ones that have the herbal effects. According to Dr. Jim Howenstine, MD, author of A Physician's Guide to Natural Health Products That Work, "This guide is indispensable for anyone who wants to learn about herbal medicine. I highly recommend it." And in the words of M. Fanous, ND, "This book should be in everyone's library - health professionals and lay people alike. I will be recommending this book to my colleagues and my patients." This full-color book contains vivid photos of over 100 of the most important medicinal herbs, with detailed information on habitat and description, parts used, vitamins contained, traditional uses, self-help uses, and active components on each herb. This book will help the consumer of herbs, as well as physicians, learn to use herbs responsibly and knowledgeably. It will also enable the patient and physician to work together toward a safe program that will benefit all parties. In an emergency, the knowledge gained from this book may actually save your life!

5.0 out of 5 stars A "Must Have" for the professional and the home Oct. 5 2011
By M Fanous ND - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book should be in everyone's library - health professionals and lay people alike. I will be recommending this book to my colleagues and my patients.
I am amazed to see how much information Dr. Farley and T Bollinger were able to include in this 100-page volume. It is both easy to read and attractively designed. It contains enough up-to-date scientific information on the pharmacology of the herbs covered to be a valuable resource not only for the public but also for the herbalists and other health professionals.
In it you will find information on the active constituents of medicinal herbs, their medical effects, how to grow, harvest and prepare the herbs and how to combine them to safely treat common ailments.
The authors did a great job - Definitely recommend this book as a valuable addition to your libraryA Guide to Understanding Herbal Medicines and Surviving the Coming Pharmaceutical Monopoly

5.0 out of 5 stars a' must have', for the family library Sept. 24 2011
By juneione - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I could not put this book down, till I had understood its system,
so that when I need info from it, I know exactly where in the book
to get it. This book is written for the average person (me), who has no medical
knowledge.The language is simple (easy to understand). The book is also very
informative, and the most complete guide to herbs , that I have read.I'd
consider this book necessary, to any one who takes his/her health
seriously.
Thanks to its authors.

I was disappointed, I thought it was going to contain Herbs for various ailments. All it did was describe each Herb. I could have done that on the internet.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Jan. 7 2012
By cany58 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I heard the authors on a radio show and they were very interesting. I bought the book thinking it would include some of the natural remedies they talked about on the show, but it doesn't. This isn't actually a book on herbal medicines, it's a book about the ingredients that could be used in herbal medicines, but you don't learn anything about how to use them. The book is useless and overpriced.

I was very disappointed with this book. It was not comprehensive as it was represented. Much too much too pricey for what it was as a paperback.
