Reviews - What do customers think about Herbal Remedies: A Quick and Easy Guide to Common Disorders and Their Herbal Remedies?

Useful Guide to Herbal Remedies  Aug 30, 2006
The book is divided into five sections. It's extremely thorough
How to Use Herbs explains herb use in different parts of the world. It lists types of plants used in remedies. Then it reviews the effects of different herbs on the nervous system, cardiovascular, digestive, urinary, etc. It lists sources of herbs (root, bark, leaf, flower, oils, etc.) It tells forms that herbs are taken in (infusions, decoctions, capsules, tinctures, glycerates, syrups, etc.)
The second part of the book reviews Body Systems and types of herbs used for different conditions. A diagram of the human body shows what area certain herbs are used for and gives a page for more details on each. For instance it lists 11 herbs used for PMS.
The third section has the A-Z Herbal Prescriber. Look up the conditon by name (ADHD, colitus, cough, etc.).
Part four covers Herbal Sources, Dosage & Safety.
Part five contains Herbal Resources (addresses and a bibliography) & the Index.
An essential reference for any herbalist  Oct 27, 2005

** A mirror image of his homeopathic book, which I also recommend**

Asa Hershoff, ND, is a naturopathic physician, chiropractor and homeopath who also uses herbal remedies. What a resume :) He also owns and runs an actual practice, which is a refreshing change for an author of natural healing. Andrea Rotelli, ND, is also a naturopath who uses flower essenses, herbalism and medical astrology. The qualified mixture here holds promise.

This book is more of a reference manual than anything else, so never buy it expecting more than that or you will be dissapointed. It is not an 'herbal', as no herbs are given in detail. It also has absolutely ZERO formulas, remedies, recipes, or combinations. Again, it's a reference - and an excellent one at that.

The first section on How to Use Herbs was fascinating as, although it was short and sweet, the authors go over the history of herbs in different parts of the world, from Global to Asian to Indian, to North American. The history of medicine is always fascinating and enough detail is given here to provide fuel for more learning in other sources. He also includes some small sections of plant constituents, much like Hoffman does in his illustrated holistic herbal.

A different thing about this book is that it's followed by the effects various herbs have, but on the systems, which is how this book is categorized. There are several interesting points brought up in the how to use herbs section, as well as history and info, and all done from an actual healers standpoint, not overly cautious and theoretical, but with enthusiasm and belief. A nice change.

The next is the heart of the book. Each body system is divided, with drawings by Asa, and then the conditions are in alphabetical order.

Frankly the organization IS a bit confusing (you'll see what I mean when you need something and it's not just alphabetical order), but it's doable. Each condition is introduced with a brief note on cause and conditions, and an overview of treatment needed (not just herbal) After this herbs are listed, with 3 - 4 lines under the herb name. On each line is a different point on why this herb should be used, pretty nifty. By each herb name are stars, one being a recommended herb but with a weak effect, and the larger number (guessing five) showing how strongly it affects.

It ends with a brief wrap up of herbs covered.

Overall this is meant to be a quick reference guide and doesn't try to claim itself as anything else. It's good for a cinch, and I always turn here for conditions, along with other herbs. FOr one thing it almost always seems to mention an herb other sources don't , or bring up a reason for usage others don't. It stands out from the crowd because of this, and because of this reason is why I also regard it so highly.

If you're in need of a good reference, here's one to get.
Concise and to the point!  Oct 5, 2003
This book is a great quick reference for the layman and clinician alike. The material is organized well with plenty of references and scientifically based uses. I use this little gem when I am in a hurry and need something quick, concise, accurate and to the point. This book is definitely worth having around. I will never get rid of my copy.

Great For Beginners and experienced herbalist  Nov 15, 2001
When I came across this book (...), I had to buy it. Now It is my favorite among the dozen herbal reference books on my shelf. In fact, currently it is lent out to a friend who is wanting to learn about herbs for treating common illness. This book is the well rounded and written by two ND's (Naturopathic Doctors)
Stimulating...Vital....Erudite  Aug 14, 2001
Drs. Hershoff and Rotelli's Herbal Remedies text is a fascinating journey to the multidimensional world of plants and how they may be used medicinally. The delivery of fascinating information presented in this 300-some odd page book is liken to sitting spell-bound in the midst of ancient medicine men and futuristic scientists. Dr. Hershoff's background as award-winning best-loved professor shows with the user-friendly organization. I make use of this book as a quick and thorough reference and also as a compelling novel. EXCELLENT!
