Inspiring herbalism's practitioners and celebrating its many practical and aesthetic arts. Helping deepen the connection and relationships between human kind and the natural world, raising awareness about the needs and conservation of wild plants as well as about their safe uses. Raising the profiles of many of the most wise, intuitive, and experienced herbalists, so that more people can learn and benefit from the incredible body of knowledge that they have to share. And providing the skills and tools required to develop the most effective herbal practice possible. It is for this last purpose that we compiled the 87 original pieces for The Herbal Clinician, pulled directly from the pages of past Plant Healer issues. 25 different writers/teachers cover a wide range of topics related to seeing clients and treating their ailments botanically. While in no way complete or comprehensive, numerous areas are explored from a wide range of perspectives, including but not limited to:Diagnostics & Evaluations A first step in addressing any health condition is accurate assessment. You'll read about constitutions, tissue states, tongue and pulse diagnosis.Herbal Energetics & Actions Learn about herbal actions and properties, from demulcents to stimulants, tonics and trophorestoratives, as well as the energetics of the cardiovascular system.Treatments & Therapeutics Articles on organ systems including circulatory, immune, nervous, respiratory and urinary, plus female health from puberty to menopause, maternity and children, mental health and neurodiversity, treating animals, and first aid and external applications such as treating blunt trauma and soft tissue wounds, tackling parasites botanically, and topical application of herbs and honey.Clinical Skills & Case Studies Learn important practical skills and tools, herb selection criteria, drug/herb interactions, and more, and then read the enlightening case studies.Clinics, Business, & Practice Articles about teaching herbalism to both adult students and kids. Herbal entrepreneurship and making a living in the field of botanical healing. Community herbalism, nursing and herbalism, tips for beginning herbalists, and self care of the hard working practitioner.As with our other Plant Healer compilations, the pages of this book are taken directly from past issues of the quarterly magazine. One result is that some articles/chapters begin with a "Seeing People" or other department header at top, while other equally significant articles do not.

"Western Medicine", "Alternative Medicine", "Complementary Medicine", "Holistic Medicine", and "Natural Medicine." There is really only one "medicine" that heals and puts the whole patient, not the disease, at the center of care: Integrated Medicine. This practice integrates all modalities of healing to produce not merely a medical cure, but a deeper healing of the patient on his or her own terms. The Clinical Practice of Complementary, Alternative, and Western Medicine is a scientifically based text that informs and leads the practitioner easily through the maze of alternative therapies. Unlike other books that address the different alternative modalities, this text integrates homeopathy, acupuncture, chinese herbology, western herbology, and clinical nutrition, then combines them with traditional medicine. The author explains the new paradigm of patient-centered and Integrated Medicine and includes an extensive section on the physical underpinnings of this new paradigm, a paradigm that employs thermodynamics, non linear dynamics, chaos theory, and fractal geometry in an easy to understand discourse. The book incorporates the author's fundamental training in the alternative modalities and his ten years of clinical practice, a practice in which multiple integrated modalities of healing were utilized in the healing of over 10,000 patients. The Clinical Practice of Complementary, Alternative, and Western Medicine is a tremendously valuable reference for practitioners who want to learn about and practice alternative therapies and those who want to be more informed about what their patients may be doing and taking, and the influences those self-administered therapies may be having on their care.

Cannabis is one of the oldest cultivated plants dating back 12,000 years and demonstrates medicinal properties including immune support, anti-inflammatory effects, and cancer-fighting potential. As cannabis receives regulatory approval in the United States, clinicians will need guidelines to prescribe medical marijuana for various health conditions. This book presents information to healthcare professionals focusing on medical cannabis. It is a science-based overview providing clinical recommendations and dosing guidelines for practitioners to advise patients appropriately. Features: • Discusses the endocannabinoid system role in homeostasis, pain control, and regulatory function in health and disease • Advises clinicians on cannabis use in patients with cancer; cardiovascular, brain, and liver function; mood disorders; and patients receiving palliative care • Includes information on cannabis nutrition as well as the cannabis microbiome • Features information on cannabis quality control for safe and effective delivery Cannabis: A Clinician’s Guide is written for clinicians providing a resource guide to help them assess the medicinal value of cannabis, answer patient and consumer questions, and recommend its use optimally. The book is divided into three sections covering cannabis science, use in clinical practice, and regulations and standards. It includes practical information on dosing guidelines and dispensary insights, personal cannabis stories, and an in depth look at the nutritional benefits of cannabis and how to use it in daily life. From the Author: "As a clinical nutritionist, I have been involved in the use of cannabis since 1981 while researching diabetes in India. Ayurvedic medicine listed cannabis as a beneficial herb with curing properties. In 1983, a Chinese medicine doctor in the Peoples Republic of China gave me a cannabis herbal supplement for sleep that he claimed Chairman Mao took regularly. Upon returning to the United States, no one would even talk to me about cannabis because of its Schedule I status. During an Antioxidants class taught for Everglades University, I included information on cannabis, but was restricted from including it in the course description. Cannabis: A Clinician’s Guide unveils deceit on this herbal medicine used for thousands of years providing insight into the science behind its use and how to incorporate cannabis into daily life, especially for those suffering from neurological disorders, cancer, and mood disorders."
