The book's author,Mowrey, derives remedies for several mainstream ailments. Most if not all of these remedies are included in the current european pharmacopia and have been used for centuries. I sometimes referred to this book in teaching my Health Science class and while i practised as a chiropractor.

It's listed here: http://www.amazon.com/Scientific-Validation-Herbal-Medicine-Daniel/dp/0879835346

Hey cool! That looks pretty interesting...

I took a medicinal plants course in college. We used a book the professor wrote (http://www.amazon.com/Medical-Botany-Af ... 000&sr=8-9).

It's meant for college instruction, so if you want to get into chemical names and modes of action, as well as lots of great stories, it's a great book.

I still remember his stories of people brewing tea from things they shouldn't (foxglove, yew) or seeing "mistletoe tea" in the nutrition store (which has a chemical that's a vasodialator... acts like cobra venom) complete with berries that were "extra potent."

And he also had a copy of a letter somebody had sent to the the FDA (I guess?) when they banned sassafras sale. Boy was that funny...

Okay, sorry to completely go off there... good memories!
