Ayurvedic Herbs: A Clinical Guide to the Healing Plants of Traditional Indian Medicine Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A single-source reference on the most important and best-investigated Ayurvedic herbs This book examines the clinical information available on more than 60 Ayurvedic herbs to determine how their use in traditional Indian medicine is supported by modern scientific study. Plants are grouped according to body systems and each entry includes a description, information on the source plant, distribution and traditional use, active chemical constituents, relevant pharmacology, and details of clinical studies and safety findings. This unique book also includes a brief history of Ayurveda, examines the history of drug development and evaluation in ancient India, and identifies current trends resulting from scientific investigation. Worldwide interest in Ayurveda is growing quickly, especially in the United States, Europe, and Japan. But until now, information on Western-style clinical trials on Ayurveda herbs has been scattered and no single source for descriptions, comments, and references has existed. Ayurvedic Herbs presents the first critical validation of Ayurvedic medicine, extensively referenced for physicians and clinicians interested in alternative and adjunctive therapies. This unique book is essential for making informed choices on herb use, offering clinical trial data, results of pharmacological studies, and safety information.Ayurvedic Herbs examines: gastrointestinal agents hepatoprotective agents respiratory tract agents cardiovascular drugs urinary tract drugs antirheumatic agents skin and trauma care agents gynecological agents antidiabetic agents CNS agents rasayana drugs dental and ophthamological agents and much moreAyurvedic Herbs includes cross-references to chapters when a particular plant has more than one indication and watercolor illustrations of twelve major herbs.

Book News Annotation:

Herbs used in traditional Indian medicine (e.g., guggul for treating obesity and associated disorders) have become popular in Western alternative and complementary medicine. Premila (a retired R&D manager of herbal drugs at a pharmaceutical firm in India) took the suggestion of herbal expert Varro Tyler (of Tyler's Honest Herbal renown) to compile information on clinical trials on such botanicals. Following an introduction to this ancient medical system and relevant modern research, she describes agents for disorders of the pivotal gastrointestinal tract and other systems. The volume includes several color botanical plates, and a list of plants and their indications referenced to chapter numbers. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
