The Complete German Commission E Monographs: Therapeutic Guide to Herbal Medicines.
The Complete German Commission E Monographs: Therapeutic Guide to Herbal Medicines' is a compendium of research on herbs and their medicinal uses. The use of herbs as dietary supplements and remedies for ailments has become widespread. This growing popularity caused The American Botanical Council to put together a reference book that works as an excellent resource for doctors, self-medicators, and patients.
The book is organized as a dictionary, with more than 300 herbs listed alphabetically. The information includes dosages, indications, and contraindications of approved herbs, side effects and pharmacological actions of approved and unapproved herbs, cross-references by body system and ailment, herb-drug interactions, and an extensive introduction on the classification of herbal medicine.
