By Susan Perri

What are the appropriate uses of medicinal herbs based on tradition and science? This book will help you find the answers.

Perri, a clinical herbalist, advocates "conscious awareness", that is, respect for the cause and effect of any medicine, conventional or herbal. She explains the use of extracts and the differences between standard, alcohol and water based preparations. You'll also appreciate the glossary of plant categories and the comprehensive list of herbal resources, products and supplies.

In chapter 2 you'll learn about conventional health risks. Perri reviews hysterectomy, oral contraception and issues in pregnancy. The conventional philosophy is explained, along with the risks associated with certain interventions.

The final section consists of information about essential herbs for women. From PMS to natural labor augmentation, this is a treasure chest of remedies, including safety and efficacy information.

Botanical Medicine in Midwifery is a good source of basic herbal information; this book is perfect for students and others who are just beginning to learn about herbs.
