By Jeanne Rose .

San Francisco, CA Herbal Studies Course, 1992. Paperback First Edition, unstated. First Edition [1992], unstated. Fine in Wraps: binding square and secure; text clean. Virtually 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. Large 8vo. 375pp. Introduction by Victoria Edwards. Includes Index. Chapter contributed by Thomas Norton. Contributions to the text also by Joni Loughran, Gloria Rawlinson, and Victoria Edwards. Illustrated with duotone drawings and designs by John Hurlburd. Published in conjuction with North Atlantic Books. Trade Paperback. Jeanne Rose, affectionatley known as the Grand Dame of aromatherapy to those in the field, has compiled over the years a wealth of practical and researched information about aromatherapy. With her charming humor she weaves the history of aromatherapy. In this book you will find almost anything you would want to know about aromatherapy including recipes, her own and others, from skin care to pet care. She even covers the unusual aspects of aromatherapy such as the musical and chakra qualities of essential oils. An excellent book for beginners or beyond. It is a wonderful book for looking up particular essential oils, finding their properties, cautions etc. for both the beginner and advanced aromatherapy student. The aromatherapy reference charts listed in the book are indispensable and there is even a Chakra and Color chart as well. I use this book so often as a great reference source that I wore mine out. It has wonderful cross-referencing for the essential oils, recipes, history, uses etc. Jeanne has also included little symbols to alert users to the volatility/toxicity of certain oils as well. The first book I would recommend to someone who wants to get started in this field. It tells you about what almost every essential oil does, and it has several useful tables and charts. I can't imagine a better resource for researching so many different essential oils than this book. It was because of this book that I started my avid interest in aromatherapy which led me to taking advanced education with Ms. Rose and gaining my aromatherapy certification. You will not find alot of recipes in this book, but it is an excellent book for looking up particular essential oils, finding their properties, cautions etc. for both the beginner and advanced aromatherapy student. The aromatherapy reference charts listed in the book are indispensable and there is even a Chakra and Color chart as well. It is direct, and written in layman's terms. I find Ms. Rose's personal stories that are weaved throughout the book delightful and because of her amiable style of writing - have every book that Ms. Rose has ever written, and this is one of the very best.

Textbook of Natural Medicine (Two Volume Set).

By Joseph E. Pizzorno and Michael T. Murray, [Editors].

New York, NY Churchill Livingston, 1999. Hardcover Second Edition, Revised & Enlarged. Second Edition, Revised & Enlarged [1999]. Near Fine: shows only the most minute indications of use: Mild rubbing and some superficial scratches to the lamination and the quater cloth backstrip shows a bit of faint smudging; the former owner's gift inscription at the front free endpaper of Volume I. Else flawless. Binding square and secure; text clean. No longer pristine, but remains structurally sound and tightly bound, showing minimal wear and with a clean text: Very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. Large Format 4to. 1744pp. The first edition was published in 1991. Hardback: Quarter Cloth and Laminate Boards. As a naturopathic physician and educator, I have found this textbook to be an indispensible learning tool for anyone serious about understanding natural medicine. A work of this magnitude is bound to have imprefections. The Textbook of Natural Medicine is an incredibly ambitious work. More importantly, it is a groundbreaking work. Many others have come later to improve upon what Drs. Murray and Pizzorno have created here, but this book is the grand-daddy of all of them. Murray and Pizzorno have done more to advance awareness of naturopathic medicine in the world than anyone. This textbook is only one part of their legacy. Moreover, it is not the work of just two people, but a collaborative effort that includes many contributors. This book was written by practitioners with tremendous intelligence and experience, who were practicing complementary and alternative medicine decades before most people even knew what it was. This is an evolving work that deserves the highest regard, even with its flaws. There are critical aspects of natural medicine that exist nowhere in print except in this textbook. The Textbook of Natural Medicine is an amazing compilation of information on natural medicine, clearly the definitive work on natural medicine to date. What is perhaps the most amazing about this book is it's comprehensive nature. From detailed information on the history of naturopathic medicine to wonderfully complete discussions of individual herbal medicines, this book has it all. Even difficult-to-categorize subjects like detoxification, food allergies and stress management have been included. For the practitioner, perhaps the most valuable feature of this two-volume set are over 70 chapters dedicated to specific health problems. These chapters include sections on both diagnostic and therapeutic considerations, enabling the physician to get a quick overview/review of general features of the disease, appropriate diagnostic approaches and possible differential diagnoses, as well as solid, science-based natural therapeutics. Definitely a "must-have" for health-care practitioners. Any healthcare practitioner who has not studied it can claim to be an expert in natural medicine.
