Customer Review: The must book in phytotherapy

Medical Herbalism is a must to have book if you are interested to learn or already work with phytotherapy. I suggest it 100%.

Customer Review: Great Book!

I am so enthralled with this book. I’m using it as a text book…taking notes, etc. I got into medicine because I don’t only want to know “what” but, also “why”. This book brings phytotherapy and mainstream American medicine together and makes herbalism make sense to a practitioner of pharmaceuticals… I love this book!!
