Product Overview

An authoritative reference work for anyone interested in herbal medicine, this book provides unprecedented insight into Prophetic phytotherapy, a branch of herbal medicine which relies exclusively on the herbal prescriptions of the prophet Muhammad and is little known outside of the Muslim world. Combining classical Arabic primary sources with an exhaustive survey of modern scientific studies, this encyclopedia features a multidisciplinary approach which should prove useful for both practitioners and followers of herbal medicine. Entries include each herb's botanical and alternate names, a summary of its "prophetic prescription," its properties and uses, and a guide to related contemporary scientific studies. Fully indexed by common English name, transliterated Arabic name and Latin binomial.
