9780020360414: The Natural Pharmacy

This work explores the diverse medicinal uses of more that 250 minerals, plants, and other organic materials, ranging from common foodstuffs, such as honey, to marine creatures like the sea horse. Each ingredient is shown in a full colour A - Z photographic catalogue while the encyclopaedic reference section details the geographical origin and historical uses of each item, its active ingredients, its medicinal uses in different healing systems and the form in which it is prescribed. "The Natural Pharmacy" is a guide to the diversity and powerful properties of these natural healing substances and the origins of natural remedies used in different systems of medicine around the world, ranging from Indian Ayurvedic medicine to Chinese herbalism, in forms as varied as infusions, tinctures, tablets, powders and ointments.
