Review Text

  • By Guest on 20 February 2010

    This book included the use/misuse of drugs alongs with herbs.pharmaceutical products should not, in my opinion but put in the same at category as herbs.In my opinion herbs are superior in every way.It seems to be an attempt to advocate the use of herbs in the same way as drugs. Traditional medicine is the use of indigenous plants help the body get better and this is what happens.As a herbalist I am not in favour of unnatural products. Herbs are natural and organic and are best suited to the needs of the body.I was disappointed in this book, it did not do what it said on the tin ie it did not tell you how herbs can help to treat emtional problems, just listed them along with pharmaceutical drugs and recreational drugs.
