Healing Plants Book Excerpt:

Rosemary, mint and onions are commonly found in kitchens, but physician Markus Sommer argues that cooking only makes use of one aspect of plants like these. In this illustrated, readable book he vividly describes their full characteristics, helping the reader to understand their true nature. He discusses the properties of over thirty plants. For example, did you know that St John's Wort is not only good for depression, but also heals wounds? Plantain is good for coughs, but is also effective in treating strokes and multiple sclerosis. Dr Sommer demonstrates the deep connection between the character of the plant and the nature of the conditions they can cure or alleviate. More than just a simple guide to herbal remedies, this book lifts the lid on the powerful secrets of the plant world.

This remarkable new book is the first text dedicated to the topic of pharmacovigilance for herbal and traditional medicines. Taking a truly global perspective, this volume draws together contributions from a diverse group of experts, writing on current knowledge and practices in pharmacovigilance for herbal and traditional medicines, and on advances and innovation in monitoring the safety of this unique and complex category of products and preparations. In part one, the book discusses the current status of pharmacovigilance for herbal and traditional medicines, including the importance of natural products chemistry to harms, and its relevance in considering how pharmacovigilance for these products could be undertaken. Several other chapters discuss methodological approaches and ongoing challenges in pharmacovigilance for herbal and traditional medicines, including issues relating to nomenclature, coding and classification, and the nuances involved in causality assessment. Part two of the book focusses on pharmacovigilance for herbal and traditional medicines around the world, with chapters from authors in several different countries representing diverse historical, ethnic, cultural, social and political contexts. These chapters provide deeper insights and perspectives into spontaneous reporting for herbal and traditional medicines in those countries, and in the context of the local use, practice and regulatory landscape for these products. Part two also provides an overview and new analysis of international case safety reports for herbal medicines held in VigiBase (the World Health Organization's global database of individual case safety reports, maintained by the Uppsala Monitoring Centre). This book is aimed at pharmacists, doctors, nurses and other health professionals, herbal-medicine practitioners and organisations, herbal medicine and pharmaceutical industry personnel, pharmacovigilance specialists, medicines’ regulators, health and social science researchers and academics, pharmacovigilance and health professional students, and students of herbal and traditional medicine, throughout the world.

Non Western Educational Traditions Book Excerpt:

This text provides a brief yet comprehensive overview of a number of non-Western approaches to educational thought and practice. Its premise is that understanding the ways that other people educate their children--as well as what counts for them as "education"--may help us think more clearly about some of our own assumptions and values, and to become more open to alternative viewpoints about important educational matters. The value of this informative, mind-opening text for preservice and in-service teacher education courses is enhanced by "Questions for Discussion and Reflection" and "Recommended Further Readings" included in each chapter. New in the Third Edition: *Chapter 2, "Conceptualizing Culture:" 'I, We, and The Other,' is new to this edition. It is a response to feedback about the problems inherent in our general discourse about "culture," and in addition provides an example of a culture that is near to us but nevertheless alien-the culture of the Deaf-World. *Chapter 9-which deals with Islam and traditional Muslim education-has been substantially revised. *The subtitle of the Third Edition has been changed to Indigenous Approaches to Educational Thought and Practice, reflecting not so much a change in the emphases found in the book, but rather, a recognition of the growing scholarly interest in indigenous peoples, their languages, cultures, and histories. *Various points throughout the text have been expanded and clarified, and chapters have been updated as needed.
