Pintubala Kshetri, K. Tamreihao, Subhra Saikat Roy, Thangjam Surchandra Singh, Susheel Kumar Sharma, and Meraj Alam Ansari Maurice M. Iwu (M. Pharm., Ph.D. Bradford) was a professor of pharmacognosy at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, and a senior research associate at the Division of Experimental Therapeutics of the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, Washington, D.C. He is the founder and chairman of the Bioresources Development and Conservation Programme (BDCP), the International Centre for Ethnomedicine and Drug Development (InterCEDD), and Intercedd Health Products. He is a member of the board of directors of Neimeth International Pharmaceuticals (Formerly Pfizer Nigeria). Ms Horma Anna Miezah, Deputy Director General of the National Lottery Authority, who launched the book on behalf of Mr Samuel Awuku, the Director General of NLA, said the efficacy of plant medicines had been tested over the years, most recently during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. This book has step-by-step instructions for making any kind of herbal preparation you could possibly think of. It also explains why you should do certain things, not just how, which is handy to know if you find yourself faced with the need to improvise. The Herbal Medicine Maker’s Handbook is extremely detail-oriented, but still very readable – Green is authoritative while still being lighthearted. A prime example of this is the chapter on herb jellos, an unexpected and surprisingly useful way to prepare herbs for kids – and one that he stumbled on quite by accident! The book also contains a brief overview of 30 plants that he and the other co-directors of the California School for Herbal Studies developed for use as part of the school’s curriculum. Describes medicinal uses of plants in Classical Greece as written by Dioscorides, Pliny and Galen, through the flowering of Arabic medicine by physicians such as Paulus Aegineta, Mesue and Avicenna to the 12 th to 14 th century compilations of Serapion and Sylvaticus and the European Renaissance of Peter Treveris, William Turner, Leonard Fuchs, Pietro Mattioli, John Gerarde, John Parkinson, Nicholas Culpeper, and many others to the pharmacopoeias of the 16 th century to the present day.

He noted that, as part of efforts to speed up the mainstreaming of the use of plant medicine into the healthcare delivery, over 40 herbal units had been set up in some public hospitals across the country to give patients the option to choose their preferred type of treatment. In the era of the processed and artificial, the natural often represents a step of well-being for many people. Returning to ancestral traditions is what many people are doing and we want to accompany them on their way. That is why we offer you this collection of books on medicinal plants in PDF format, with very valuable information on their use. I commend the time, energy, and knowledge that Dr. Iwu has invested in both editions of his book. This is a truly valuable resource that I hope will be used prolifically and expanded upon."She encouraged Ghanaians to accept plant medicine as part of disease treatment “There is nothing evil about plant medicine as sometimes are made to believe,” she said. Mr Agyei bemoaned the impact activities such as illegal mining, deforestation, and climate change, were having on the country’s rich plant diversity and urged authorities to do more to save the forests from further destruction. One of the most thorough resources on herbal materia medica available anywhere, The Earthwise Herbal details historical use of many herbs and includes Wood’s personal experiences in working with the herbs in his clinical practice. Volume One focuses on Old World, European plants, while Volume Two discusses the New World plants of North America. Wood has focuses on Western herbalism and a more folk-style approach, but his books are an excellent resource for herbalists of any tradition. These references are valuable both for beginners and experienced herbalists alike, as they provide valuable insight and lesser known perspectives on many well-loved herbs. Dr. Nirmal Joshee is a Professor of Plant Science at Fort Valley State University (FVSU), Fort Valley, GA, USA. He earned his Ph.D. from North Eastern Hill University, Shillong, India.

However, with the technological advances in food and pharmacy, along with the change in eating habits, the practice of consuming healing herbs was left aside.

Dr Barimah, the Executive Director of CPMR and one of the authors said the publication of the book would make it easy for practitioners of herbal medicine and for individuals to be able to identify and recognize various herbal medicine plants.
