Green Pharmacy The History and Evolution of Western Herbal Medicine

Including the latest developments in the field of herbal medicine this classic bestseller presents a fascinating account of the ideas personalities advances and vicissitudes that have shaped the course of me. I acuired this book mostly to find out about herbal vs regular medicine in the late nineteenth century and while there is some valuable information Griggs does what most history writers do concentrates on the early and mid 19th century and skips over the late period uite uicklyStill the book as a whole was fascinating It s a survey of how natural remedies have been used over the millennia starting with the Neanderthals and how practitioners of what we now see as alternative medicines have been repeatedly sidelined attacked suppressed jeered at and ignored by the regular medical establishment And yet they have survived and even thrived Griggs covers mostly the UK USA and continental Europe France and Germany in particular but there are sideshoots discussing the picture in other countries so it is a pretty comprehensive historyThe most detailed chapters are the last few covering developments from around the 1970s to 1997 the date of the book s last edition This book absolutely cries out to be updated to cover the last 25 years and could almost be split into two books one on the distant history and one on the recent developments with an expanded discussion of the ecological political and commercial problemsThe writing is lively and the whole book is very readable especially the history chapters I felt that I learned a lot overall and would recommend this book to anyone trying to reach a better understanding of why today s medical landscape is the way it is

    Recommend if you want a different understanding of how “western” ah hem I mean old white guy “we think we know better than you because we are white dudes” medicine took over in the United States and shoved out people like herbalists I’m glad we’re getting back to some of these things but with climate change

    A thoroughly researched and well documented book on the history and evolution of medicine It's easy to cast a glimpse of shame on those in the past especially after reading this but we would do well to not forget about our current barbaric medical practices I shall not go into details on that topic at the moment

    Some bold faced lies and vague and biased references but if you don’t take some of the last few chapters seriously it’s a nice review of the history of herbal medicine
