Great Book

Very detailed book. I am still looking through it and will refer to often during my herbal studies.

Good Reference Book

With a bookshelf full of herb books and a 10yr student, this book was recommended to me by my herb teacher and she uses in her classes today. I love the detail and layout. Easy to use for a beginner, but a wealth of info for a novice.

Nurses! This one's for YOU

Here is a book that spells out the future and helps you right now to provide patient education on that tricky topic of herbs. Martha provides easy to remember guidelines for patient counselling on herb self-use. She provides information on the use of commonly available and popular herbs that are also generally recognized as safe, using the nursing model. Other herb books use herbalist and/or medical models. And she describes how nurses use herbs and herbal therapies in hospitals. She is a historian and informs us about those nurses who founded the profession and how they used herbs to help patients; Florence Nightengale is revealed as a master herbalist. Her position that many herb applications are and should remain nursing orders and not doctor's orders is thought-provoking, given that such matters are being decided now. But, will these matters be decided with herb-educated nurses or are we to wait passively for our orders?. This book is a unique and indispensable resource and education guide for nurses who know that herbs are not going away any time soon, and whose use in clinical practice will only become more common and integrated into daily clinical practice. How will herbal medicines integrate into nursing practice? Written by a nurse who has actually used herbs in acute care settings here in the USA. This book is FOR nurses.
