Description: Understanding Medicinal Plants is a unique work designed to explain the chemical composition of healing herbs to people who are intimidated by chemistry. This beautifully illustrated, reader-friendly guide explores the molecules of medicinal plants and the pharmacology behind their actions on the human body. Understanding Medicinal Plants aims for the middle ground between a technical manual for highly trained individuals and a book for the general public that over-simplifies the material. It will be valuable to non-science majors, biology majors, interested scientists of different disciplines and practitioners and students of herbalism and complementary medicine.
