An Herbal Book by an Actual Clinical Herbalist

Alan Tillotson is an experienced herbalist and independent thinker whose One Earth Herbal Sourcebook is useful for professionals and educated consumers alike. Trained extensively in Traditional Ayurvedic Medicine in Nepal, Tillotson draws upon a sophisticated herbal repertoire in dealing with MS, opthalmologic conditions, hepatitis C, diabetes and allergic rhinitis. He uses the best of Chinese, Ayurvedic and western herbs in protocols that are practical and effective. Written with humor and intelligence, the book is over 600 pages of useful herbal and nutritional advice. This is one of the better books of herbal medicine I own.

Excellent scientific based information

By far the most scientific based compilation of information on herbology. Dr. Tillotson provides clear, organized information in a systems based format. As an osteopathic physician I highly recommend this source to all medical professionals interested in integrated western and eastern approaches to health and disease.

One of the best herb books ever written

I have a degree in Chinese herbs and at least 50 books on herbs. This is one of the best.The author reviews Chinese, Western and Ayurvedic herbs. He includes research and little known facts about the herbs. There are chapters on different diseases and the herbs that will treat them, including HIV, cancer, diabetes and thyroid problems.There is a great explanation of the immune system, with each component explained very clearly, along with herbs that have been proven to affect that specific function. Which herbs boost interferon and which ones boost NK cells? What is tumor necrosis factor and what herbs stimulate it?There is a seamless integration of Naturopathic and allopathic.For example: Cases of hyperthyroidism and of hypothyroidism were confirmed via blood test. Hyperthyroidism correlated with a yin deficiency diagnosis and hypothyroidism with a yang deficiency diagnosis. As would be expected. Everyone who loves herbs should have a copy of this book!!!!

A Truly Remarkable Book

This is a truly remarkable book.In a sense it is an encyclopedic treatment of herbology for the layman, and a reference book for the specialist. One correctly gets the impression that the author and his two co-authors really know what they are talking about. The book is based on an extensive knowledge about herbs, and considerable clinical experience. It covers the area of herbal treatment comprehensively. The content is well organized and information is clearly presented.The index is lengthy and detailed. The Appendix conveniently lists herbs, according to their physiological action, by their common and Latin names. The Resource Guide. is unusually comprehensive. It is a pleasure to recommend this book. Albert Schatz, Ph.D. Professor Emeritus Temple University.

A new herbal for everyone

Alan Tillotson's new book represents an important contribution to the growing list of herb books. There is nearly 600 pages of information ranging from individual herbs from around the world, therapeutic diet recommendations that will compliment a good herbal therapy, treatments for diseases and conditions based on the different systems of the body, herb to herb and herbdrug interactions (that are hardly any!) -- best of all unlike so many other books this one is written by a practicing herbalist and is based on his first hand experience......
