Abstract

This book is the first BHMA guide to the new opportunities. In this volume are formal references to the uses of 263  European herbs that will help to meet the definition of their "traditional use". These references are notably from the British Herbal Pharmacopoeia, initially produced by the BHMA during the early 1970's and from the French government "Les M√©dicaments √† Base de Plantes" guidelines and the German government's Commission E monographs. Where herbs are recognised as combinations these are also listed. Other official monographs are referred to. This first volume therefore provides the most orthodox view of traditional herbal reputations.
