Volker Fintelmann, MD is a licensed doctor of internal medicine and gastroenterology. Former Chairman of the German Commission E, his work focuses on the practical and methodological development of herbal medicine.

Rudolf Fritz Weiss, MD (1895-1991), author of the first edition of HERBAL MEDICINE is highly regarded as the founding father of modern German phytotherapy. He studied botany and medicine at the University of Berlin, qualifying as a doctor in 1922 and subsequently taking additional qualifications in internal medicine. A teaching post in herbal medicine was interrupted by war service as an army doctor, followed by seven years in Russian captivity as a doctor in prisoner-of-war camp hospitals. After retiring from clinical practice in 1961, he devoted his life to the scientific development and acceptance of herbal medicine. Weiss was appointed as a member of the German Commission E in 1978. He was founder and editor of the ZEITSCHRIFT FUER PHYTOTHERAPIE, and lectured on current advances in the subject at the University of Tuebingen.
