Herbal Formularies: Volume 1

Herbal Formularies for Health Professionals, Volume 1: Digestion and Elimination

This reference covers everything an RDN needs to know about herbs and herbal preparations that influence the gastrointestinal system. Volume 1 focuses on digestive health and the emunctories, an herbal term referring to the organs of elimination: the gastrointestinal system, the urinary system, and the skin. This volume offers formulas and supporting information for treating gastrointestinal and biliary conditions, liver and gallbladder conditions, renal and urinary conditions, and dermatologic conditions. This is a comprehensive book on herbs for health professionals. Excellent resource to assess what herbs patients are taking and their safety and benefits or possible harmful effects.

Each chapter includes a materia medica section that describes individual herbs with tips on their properties, modes of action, and the specific symptoms each plant best addresses.


This is so relevant to my work supporting many patients with GI challenges! KK 3/2020
