Angela Pfaffenberger This book is a must for anyone into alternative health care providers and patients are interested. Bratman, a physician with extensive experience in the field of holistic medicine, reported on the results of medical research on the effectiveness of dietary supplements and herbs. The presentation style is unbiased, or criticism or recommend alternative treatments. Much is on European research with double-blind studies. Bratman contains essential information such as the dose needed to achieve the desired results and possible interactions with other drugs. This book is a much needed departure from unfounded accusations and information overload that consumers are sujected in health food stores. 9 of 10 people found this review helpful. A herbal reference based on science Linda Zarei One of the reasons why I like this book is that it is based on science, not opinion, anecdote and conventional wisdom when patients ask what kind of herbs would be best to use for a specific disorder, is book in a format that makes it easy for me to quickly look up the license and then it lists important natural treatments. Scientific evidence is then presented to the most important natural treatments to justify. It is a book that I take every time I work at the pharmacy and my patients appreciate concise answers that can be supported scientifically.The price of the book is also a plus and makes it even more attractive. 6 of 6 people found this review helpful.
