The Complete German Commission E Monographs Included in Top Three Medical Books of 1998.
Doody Publishing, the leading reviewer of medical publications, chose The Complete German Commission E Monographs -- Therapeutic Guide to Herbal Medicines as one of the top three medical books printed in 1998. An expert panel made up of health science professionals affiliated with major universities, hospitals, and healthcare systems evaluated more than 3,500 titles released last year. All the titles submitted were required to pass meticulous levels of peer review by these experts. The Complete German Commission E Monographs is the first alternative medicine title to qualify for this honor.
With the increased interest in and market sales of herbal supplements today, this herbal guidebook serves as an authoritative tool in aiding U.S. health professionals to understand the benefits and potential risks of herbal medicines. As the Doody review panel stated, "There are no other books at this time to which this can be compared. This is an important reference book for the healthcare providers committed to the responsible use of botanicals in their practice, through their own initiation, or in understanding the safety and efficacy of botanicals used by their patients."
