Herbal Formularies for Health Professionals is a five-volume set that serves as a comprehensive, practical reference manual for herbalists, physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals. Dr. Jill Stansbury draws on her decades of clinical experience and her extensive research to provide an unparalleled range of herbal formulas. Organized by body system, each volume includes hundreds of formulas to treat common health conditions, as well as formulas that address specific energetic or symptomatic presentations. For each formula, Dr. Stansbury briefly explains how the selected herbs address the specific condition. Sidebars and user-friendly lists help readers quickly choose which herbs are best for specific presentations and detail traditional uses of both Western and traditional Asian formulas and herbs that are readily available in the United States. Volume 4 focuses on herbal formulas that are complementary therapies to treatment of peripheral nerve issues, including neuropathy and nerve trauma, and central nervous system issues such as seizures, Parkinson's disease, and dementia. A chapter on psychiatric disorders focuses on herbal therapies for common conditions such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, dissociative disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as well as the use of herbal formulas in treatment of those dealing with drug addiction. A chapter on pain management provides herbal formulas for both acute and chronic pain conditions, including headaches, sinus pain, muscle pain, neuralgia, gastrointestinal pain, and pain from injuries. Each chapter includes a materia medica section that describes individual herbs with tips on their properties, modes of action, and the specific symptoms each plant best addresses. These formularies are also a tutorial for budding herbalists on the sophisticated art of fine-tuning an herbal formula for the constitution and overall health condition of an individual patient, rather than prescribing a one-size-fits-all treatment for a basic diagnosis. The text aims to teach by example, helping clinicians develop their own intuition and ability to create effective herbal formulas. Volume 1 focuses on digestion and elimination; Volume 2 covers circulation and respiration; and Volume 3 focuses on endocrinology and the reproductive systems. Volume 5, which will cover immunology, orthopedics, and otolaryngology, will be published in spring 2021.

R295 R244 Discovery Miles 2 440 Save R51 (17%) Ships in 5 - 10 working days

This book focuses on the activities of all the people who collected bird specimens in southern Africa, and their contribution to the science of southern African ornithology. In addition to the collectors, it covers some of the history and the development of ornithology as a science in southern Africa. Dr Richard Dean draws particular attention to the fact that the southern African region is blessed with an exceptionally rich bird fauna involving over 900 taxa. It is often difficult to identify closely related species in the field and this is why it has been so important to build up extensive collections of preserved bird skins and of eggs in natural history museums in various parts of the country and elsewhere in the world. The book explains how the collectors of these specimens were active in selling or donating them to museums or they were collected by dedicated people with a passionate interest in the birds themselves. Particular attention was given to the period between 1850 and 1950 when museum collections were growing intensively, and were being used. These bird collections have been used by several authors to provide material for books on birds during this period – E.L. Layard, A.C. Stark and W.L. Sclater, V. FitzSimons and E.L. Gill, to name a few. A major user of bird collections in southern Africa was Austin Roberts, who compiled the first edition of the Birds of South Africa (First Edition 1940), extracting much of the original information for the descriptions from bird material that he had personally collected for the Transvaal Museum collection (now Ditsong National Museum of Natural History). Another major user of the bird collections was Dr P.A. Clancey, who used the collection at the Durban Natural Science Museum to describe and name a large number of subspecies of birds, as well as publishing books on birds. The writing of this book on the collectors of South African birds was made possible by the author’s life-long preoccupation with the natural history of birds.

For William Butler Yeats, ""poetic license"" sometimes meant misquoting writers or misspelling Irish words. This reference guide illuminates the poetry of the Irish writer. ""A Yeats Dictionary: Names of the Persons and Places in the Poetry of W.B. Yeats"" uses Yeats' non-poetic writing, the principle Yeats criticism and the writings of his friends and critics to reveal the depth of his meanings. It identifies geographical, historical and literary references from classical antiquity to Irish culture. The pronunciation and etymological guides enhance the strong cadences of Gaelic words. This dictionary goes beyond mere identification to include biographical information and helpful cross-references to the poet's other works. Readers will learn, for example, that Yeats visited the cottages of Irish peasants to record their stories and superstitions first-hand - material that eventually found its way into his poems.

Using maps and graphics, he demonstrates why recent events have occurred and why they have an impact on us all.

It uses maps, graphics, chronologies and analysis to offer a fair and tough-minded look at what lies behind a moment of change and hope.
