This book is indispensable for those who works with the herbs. This book is systematically organised and well written. For better impact it has been included with the chemical constituents of medicinal plants.
This book is written not only for traditional herbal medicine manufacturers but it has also quite tremendous material for modern medicine practioners. With every monograph a para of use in western medicine is also given.
Unani Medicine Practitioners can have more advantage of the material provided in the book because much text is incurred there with the references of famous Unani practioners.
