James A. Duke
Still considered the definitive work on medicinal herbs and their uses after two decades, the Handbook of Medicinal Herbs has undergone a long-anticipated revision. In the second edition, world-renowned ethnobotanist James A. Duke provides up-to-date data on over 800 of the world’s most important medicinal plant species. The book contains more species, phytochemicals, proven indications, folk indications, and dosage data than the first edition in a new easier to use format. The in-depth content, the addition of color plates and over 200 black and white illustrations makes this book the most comprehensive resource on medicinal herbs available.

NEW IN THE SECOND EDITION:

· Over 100 color plates, 4 color maps

· Over 200 black and white illustrations

· Over 800 medicinal plants — more than twice as many as the previous edition organized alphabetically by common name

· More herbs from the African, Ayurvedic, Chinese, and Jamu traditions

EASY ACCESS TO INFORMATION YOU NEED

Designed to give you fast access to the information you need on a regular basis, this new edition is organized more systematically than any other medicinal herb publication. The entries are now arranged alphabetically by common name with the scientific name in parenthesis. Major synonyms are also provided.

It has become increasingly clear that there are hundreds of biologically active compounds, often additive or synergistic, in all our plants, foods, spices, herbs, medicinal, and poisonous plants. The debate continues on how these plants work and how they should be used. Blending scientific fact with folk uses and the author’s personal experience, Handbook of Medicinal Herbs, Second Edition provides the most well rounded discussions of safety, efficacy, toxicity, and rational use found in any herbal reference.

¡Las mejores medicinas de la naturaleza se encuentran en su cocina!

Usted ya sabe que las comidas suministran vitaminas y minerales que sirven de combustible para que su organismo lleve a cabo sus funciones más básicas. Los alimentos también son las mejores fuentes de fitonutrientes, sustancias poco conocidas con nombres difíciles de pronunciar--carotenoides, flavonoides e isoflavonas--y poderes terapéuticos asombrosos. Ahora puede aprovechar estos enemigos naturales de las enfermedades gracias a la perspicacia y asesoría del Dr. James Duke, la máxima autoridad en los EE.UU. sobre las plantas medicinales.

El Dr. Duke ha identificado una selección de remedios alimenticios para tratar a toda, desde alergias y fatiga hasta sobrepeso y verrugas. ¿Está luchando contra la presión arterial alta? Beba un poco de té verde, el cual es rico en compuestos naturales betabloqueadores y diuréticos. ¿Siente rigidez en sus articulaciones debido a la artritis? Cómase una granada para aliviar la inflamación. ¿Le preocupa su diabetes? La canela quizás sea de ayuda para mantener un nivel saludable de glucosa en la sangre.

Pero estos ejemplos se tratan sólo de la punta del témpano: aquí descubrirá cientos de remedios aparte de estos, entre ellos: Y cada uno lleva una calificación exclusiva en cuanto a su eficacia, la cual se basa en estudios científicos.
