With few exceptions, the conditions depicted have radiographic and blood investigations, as well as by the findings of surgical operations. The monochrome photographs especially highlight the structured changes and contrast values. The original text has been translated by A.W.

‘Herbal Medication – a Clinical and Dispensary Handbook’

by Priest and Priest.

The hardbacks we have were printed in 1982 and the publisher was L.N.Fowler & Co. Ltd. The soft backs were printed in 2000 and reprinted in 2005 by C.W.Daniel Company Ltd on behalf of the NIMH.

These are new books, kept since publication in NIMH’s stock room.

Successful herbal medication comprises the use of the right herb in the right form at the right time. Achieving this requires the combination of a sound understanding of the underlying therapeutic principles, a thorough knowledge of the Materia Medica, and a perfection of the practical techniques of herbal preparation, their advantages and disadvantages in any one prescription. Correct assessment, correct choice of herb and preparation to its most effective form are all essential to the resolution of the patient’s problem. Together, the three sections of this handbook cover all these aspects of treatment.

Intended for the clinical student and newly qualified practitioner, this book provides both a practical manual and a bridge between student courses and the more specialist repertories. This handbook on herbal medication is the result of many years of clinical experience and will provide a practical reference for the consulting room and the dispensary.

Herbal Exchanges

In celebration of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists 1864-2014.

The National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH) is celebrating 150 years since its founding in 1864. Council members decided to mark this major milestone in the history of the Institute, and of herbal medicine, with a variety of events including a commemorative book featuring herbalists from many different disciplines each sharing their knowledge of Western herbal medicine.

Entitled Herbal Exchanges the work is edited by Hananja Brice-Ytsma and Frances Watkins and is an eclectic mix of articles commissioned to celebrate this special occasion. Herbal heritage includes a synopsis of the history of NIMH and a detailed account of practicing herbal medicine during the First World War in the East End of London. The section on herbal research explores the outlook for herbal medicine, the role of herbalists and the learning we have obtained from plants. Practitioner reflections of herbal medicine and encounters of herbal medicine as a patient give intriguing insights to the rich diversity of herbalists. Herbal therapeutics is a far reaching chapter that looks at managing the menace of antimicrobial resistance to premature ovarian failure and infertility. Contributors include Jan de Vries, Barbara Griggs, Alison Denham, Julian Barker, Michael McIntyre, Kerry Bone and many more. The final section of the book focuses on herbal philosophy or in the words of medical herbalist Jonathan Treasure, ‘Western herbal medicine – back to the future’.

‘Every single member of NIMH, whether their name is recognised or not is a hero of herbal medicine. Quietly going about the business of caring for patients, NIMH members have embodied herbal medicine for 150 years’ 

Laura Stannard, President, National Institute of Medical Herbalists.
