Product Description:

At the heart of Clinical Botanical Medicine is a wealth of detailed information on using botanicals to prevent or treat diseases and conditions in 17 key categories. In addition to clear, step-by-step guidance on prescribing and dispensing, our authors provide expert insight on positive and negative interactions between botanicals, pharmaceuticals and body systems; potential synergies between botanicals and prescription drugs; and the clinical benefits of the "polypharmacy approach," whereby multiple herbs are used to reduced required dosages and toxicity.
