VERY GOOD EXPERIENCE Dec 16, 2008
THIS BOOK IS GREAT AND SO IS THE SELLER. RECEIVED THE PURCHASE VERY QUICKLY AND WAS ACTUALLY SURPRISED ON HOW QUICK I GOT IT. THE BOOK ITSELF IS GREAT AND HAS GIVEN ME VERY VALUABLE INFORMATION THAT I USE DAILY.
No supporting evidence whatsoever Jul 6, 2008
This book provides no evidence to support the thousands of claims it makes. I looked in vain for any scientific support. In particular, I took two diseases with which I am familiar and found this book to offer complete hogwash. Under Crohn's disease, there are numerous claims made about herbal "cures" but not one of them has any empirical basis for the claim (except hearsay?). I can't recommend this or Tenney's other book to anyone who is looking for valid justification for remedy.

Great book. I bought it for my sister who has alot of books on Herbs. She refers to it on a daily basis.
Tis amazing to know...what your world offers. Jul 2, 2006
Ever wonder, what can i take for this and that...and your too stubborn to consult a doctor? This is for you..it inspires self help...and it enriches you with valuable knowledge. I really was never a Herbs type of person..but after you know so much about what you have to know, its opens your mind. I recently got Ezcema and its a toughy...but theres alot of Herbs to help..and I know about them thanks to this book. I have the remidies and there working out great...great results from using Taheboo.
a mediocre reference, best used in conjunction with other books Jan 5, 2006
i have to say, after compiling a mini library of my own books on herbal health, that this one is the least reliable. the opening bits on basic preparations and a glossery of terms is sure to please people just beginning to explore this world, but i've found the format, and even some of the recommended herbs, to be off base and off putting. it is a fine companion, however, to other books such as "the herb book," and "the new enclyclopedia of herbs and their uses." heck, even earl mindell's "new herb bible" is a better resource. not good on it's own, but okay to use in conjunction with other books.
