Herbalism is an ancient practice employing plants, roots and herbs that has a firm link wit the modern-day pharmacology. Many herbal preparations have been used effectively for generations and continue to be used today. Homeopathy is the most respected branch of alternative medicine. The homeopath treats illness as a sign of disorder or imbalance in the body, making use of signs and characteristics in the patient that conventional medical practitioners would deem irrelevant. This combined volume, "Herbal Remedies & Homeopathy", provides a detailed and practical guide to both practices -- the safe use of potentially very potent herbal remedies and a detailed account of the major and minor homeopathic treatments. It comes in an easy to read A - Z format. It also contains useful chemical and medical glossaries to aid understanding.
