See herbal authority Christopher Hobbs’s website for an herbal prescriber: www.christopherhobbs.com

Christopher Hobbs is a consultant to the health industry world-wide, writes molecular chains for any given herb on a blackboard without looking up a thing, knows clinical studies backward and forwards down to such details as which participant in a study had which medical vulnerabilities prior to participating in the study and how that influenced the study’s outcome, etc. He always gives full disclosure and never hides a thing. Genuinely a person who loves people, he is very concerned about health and well-being. Of every authoritarian source, Christopher Hobbs is one of the best phytotherapists you can trust. He has more than 35 years of clinical experience as acupuncturist, herbalist and vitamin-herb formulator for companies world-wide. A few of his books may be seen on the website link above, but many more are out of print and could be googled, then purchased used from Amazon or Abe’s websites. His books would impress pharmacists and doctors, and yet are short and lay-friendly reads.

www.henriettesherbal.com this is a site with scientifically-researched herbal facts, growing tips, drying tips, medicine-making at home, and more. A reference source recommended by the herbal scientific community.

A website source to be consulted by your doctor or pharmacist about which herb raises which exact liver enzymes, drug-herb interactions, uses and contra-indications, etc is here:

www.herbmed.org do NOT use the .com website, which is a company selling herbs. The .org site sells nothing, is unbiased, gives full-disclosure and is thoroughly scientifically researched.

Your doctor or pharmacist may also obtain information about herbal studies by entering any herb into the Pubmed website, which is the government’s medical database: www.pubmed.gov

More excellent, scientifically-based and reliable herbal links may be seen on this website: www.herbpharm.com

HERBAL BOOKS:

Herbal pharmacist Elizabeth Williamson has written a book called "Potters Herbal Cyclopedia" which lists chemical constituents of each herb (good for doctors and pharmacists to know), a few clinical studies for each herb, and a lay-friendly use/contraindication description in a one-page, quick-glance format. I recommend this book for your doctor or pharmacist to determine drug-herb interactions, based on the chemical constituents listed in detail for each herb in this book. NOTE: Another book by the same title is in print. Be sure to get Elizabeth Williamsons' version.

"Healthy Healing" by Linda Rector-Page, ND is the book I recommend laypeople have in their homes for a one-page, quick-glance format as self-help book for almost every health concern under the sun. (Note that no health book ever substitutes for a doctor's testing and advice).

Christopher Hobbs and Karin Kraft, MD (who spearheads the equivalent of the FDA in Germany) Have paired up to author A Pocket Guide to Herbal Medicine (Thieme Books, publisher) which lists drug-herb interactions, therapeutic regimens at home, herbal uses and contra-indications, how individual herbs compare in effectiveness to mainstream drugs (and it's very full-disclosure), and more. Small and excellent!

Let’s hope the predicted economic depression doesn’t happen, and that things turn around for the better. And they probably still can. But if the worst even does happen, good things can come from bad situations. As communities get together, walls melt down and materialism gives rise to mutual sharing and caring. Let’s see the blessing in the curse and make the most of it. By passing on educational survival tools in leaflets and in newspaper articles, letters to the editor, etc we can overcome.

HERE’S TO HOPE AND RENEWED COMMUNAL SPIRIT!
