The Unexpected Garden Pharmacy
This book explores the medicinal (and broadly cultural) use of selected plants, covering 11 species of trees and 12 species of shrubs. Most of these species are native African plants, but some now have worldwide distribution. The description of each species provides details of their botanical characteristics, common names, distribution, traditional medical use, phytochemical characteristics, biological activity and clinical results, culinary usage, and planting and care. The book then proposes unique and original medical usages for these plants. As such, this text is an absolutely essential reference for medical practitioners interested in natural remedies.
