Product information Herbal Medicine

A symbiosis of years of experience and current scientific research

The growing demand by patients for herbal medicine over the last decades to treat and prevent illness has made it increasingly important for clinicians to become familiar with such herbal remedies.

The third edition of Herbal Medicine is the definitive work for clinicians currently using or seeking to implement herbal medicine, or phytotherapy, in their daily practice. The work is organized into eleven disease categories with specific indications for therapy. Detailed guidelines for the application and preparation of herbal remedies, a hallmark of all previous editions, have been enhanced in this new edition.

First published in 1960 by Rudolf Weiss and later coauthored with Volker Fintelmann, both of whom were appointed members of the landmark German Commission E, the work undertakes a critical appraisal of age-old and new remedies, and their utility in the spectrum of total patient care. The more recent addition of Kenny Kuchta to the authorship brings a valuable scientific pharmaceutical perspective to this classic work.

Highlights of the third edition include:

  • Updated throughout with results of latest research
  • Quick access to required information through logical organization by organ structure and disorder
  • New contents on kava and nicotine dependence, and additional medicinal plants
  • Practical advice on the contraindications and interactions for each remedy
  • Reference tables searchable by herb or disorder—ideal for everyday practice
  • An introduction to plant morphology with over 100 color photographs of medical plants

This third edition of Herbal Medicine is a practical, clinically oriented guide to the modern field of phytotherapy. Filled with insights and tips from international experts in herbal medicine, this edition earns an essential place in the libraries of both experienced practitioners and novices to the field.

Frequently asked questions

What is an e-book?
An e-book is the electronic edition of a printed book that is available as a file.
The content does not differ from the printed edition of the book. Thieme offers electronic books in PDF and EPUB formats.

What formats are there and how do they differ?
Thieme offers electronic books in PDF and EPUB formats.
The PDF format corresponds 1:1 to the printed book and has a fixed page layout. It is therefore ideal for computers, tablets and larger e-readers.
E-books in EPUB format adapt dynamically to the display size of the reading device. It is therefore particularly suitable for smaller devices such as smartphones and small-format tablets and e-readers.

Do I need a special program to open the e-book?
Free reading programs for e-books are available for all operating systems and reading devices: for PDFs, for example, Adobe Acrobat Reader, for EPUBs, for example, Adobe Digital Editions.

How does the download work?
You will find a download link on the order confirmation page and in your order confirmation email. Click on this link to start the download and save the file in a directory of your choice.

Can I read the e-book on multiple devices?
Yes, you can use your e-book on multiple reading devices.

Do I have to be online to read e-books?
No, after downloading to your reading device you can access the e-book offline at any time.

Are Thieme e-books copy-protected?
Yes, e-books are protected by a digital watermark. This means that there are no restrictions for you when using them.

Am I allowed to lend or sell e-books?
E-books are for private use only and may not be lent or sold.

Am I allowed to exchange or return the e-book?
Due to their nature, e-books are not suitable for return. Just like downloads of other electronic files (films, music or software), e-books are excluded from the right of withdrawal. A return or exchange is therefore not possible.
