Ayurvedic Herbology East & West: A Practical Guide to Ayurvedic Herbal Medicine
by Vishnu Dass
Ayurvedic Herbology East & West is a comprehensive and practical guide to Ayurvedic herbal medicine. Importantly, it is one of the first books to categorize commonly used Western medicinal plants with Ayurvedic herbal energetics. It also focuses on traditional Ayurvedic herbs and formulas that are readily available in the West. Other topics include Ayurvedic theory, the art of herbal formulation, medicine making, and home remedies.
“This wonderful, practical book is one of the masterpieces of Ayurvedic herbology. Vishnu Dass has covered many subtle topics in this quite scholarly work. In a true sense, this is an integrated work, both for Eastern and Western herbalists. This book breathes the life of practical Ayurvedic principles, methodology, pharmaceutical and pharmacological actions.”

“Ayurvedic Herbology East and West is a comprehensive and detailed study not only of Ayurvedic herbology but of Ayurvedic medicine itself, excellent for all students of herbs and an important new contribution in the field. “
— David Frawley (Pandit Vamadeva Shastri)
