Synopsis
THE HERBAL DRUGSTORE compares and contrasts over 700 herbal treatments against their over-the-counter (OTC) counterparts. Thorough and well researched, this book is a boon for anyone interested in reducing their dependency on OTC drugs for common ailments. Covering a broad range of topics like skincare, cataracts, and hangovers, THE HERBAL DRUGSTORE is as complete as any corner pharmacy. Linda B. White and her partner, Steven Foster, do an excellent job in explaining the basics of herbalism and how to prepare and administer herbs in controlled doses. Special attention is given to possible negative interactions between herbs and OTC or prescription medications. An entire third of the book is devoted to listing ailments and their possible herbal and OTC treatments. The ailments are broken down into specific symptoms, which are then each addressed individually. In this manner, a patient's body is not forced to metabolize unnecessary herbs or drugs. Equally as large and just as exhaustive is the list of individual herbs and their sources, uses, and safety concerns. An herbal shopping guide and instructions for preparing herbal remedies close out this essential herbal guide and reference book.
