The Natural Standard Herb & Supplement Guide: An Evidence-Based Reference provides high-quality, up-to-date, and unbiased information on over 400 herbs and supplements. Perfect for advising patients, each monograph is concise and includes usage, dosage information, safety considerations, and interactions with drugs and other herbs and supplements.
At-a-glance research summaries and alphabetical organization allow for quick lookup, while a unique, evidence-based A-F grading scale evaluates the efficacy of each herb and supplement to provide accurate information for effective clinical decision-making. Updates are peer-reviewed, and include new scientific evidence, dosage recommendations, coverage of allergies, side effects/warnings, and pregnancy/breast-feeding indications to promote safety when specific herbs and supplements should not be used, or when caution is required.
A review of evidence includes detailed explanations of clinical trials cited and conclusions drawn, especially as they relate to specific diseases and conditions. Cross-referencing by condition and scientific evidence grade provides a convenient decision support tool, making it easy to find the herbs and supplements that may be used for the treatment of particular conditions.
