Title of File: Herbal Constructs

Description: The use of herbal constructs would appear to me to be consistent with the Celtic idea of du/ile being connected to their analogs in the universe. This is how Blodeuwedd was conjured out of the nine elements by Gwydion and Math, a created being from flowers of oak, broom, and meadowsweet [_Dictionary of Celtic Mythology_ by Peter Berresford Ellis].

Title of File: Herbal Remedies

Description: This is part of a series of herbal remedies and applications that come from the Southwest School of Botanical Medicine: HERBAL REPERTORY IN CLINICAL PRACTICE Third Edition, by Michael Moore A manual of differential therapeutics for the health care professional Copyright 1991 by Michael Moore. Use it, share it, just don't sell it or change it in any way (unless you get my permission) This manual is designed for the use of the primary care physician and other health care practitioners who wish to integrate some herbal therapy into their practice. The symptom model used is more or less that of standard practice medicine, combined with much unorthodox but pertinent naturopathic and eclectic specifics. The format is that of a classical homeopathic repertory.

Title of File: Herbal Contraindications

Description: Synergistic and iatrogenic potentials when certain herbs are used concurrent with medical treatment or medical health care. Copyright 1995 by Michael Moore. Use it, share it, just don't sell it or change it in any way (unless you get my permission) THE REASON FOR THIS LIST: A list of side-effects written by a toxicologist or a pharmacognosist will deal ONLY with potential problems that a particular constituent may cause, and seldom treats a plant as a Gestalt. They don't understand HERBS. A list of side-effects written by most herbalists will deal with side effects from over-dosage or adulteration, and will seldom consider the implications for drug or procedural medicine. They don't understand MEDICINE. I feel fairly secure in both worlds, so this list of potential synergies and contraindications is meant to honor BOTH approaches. I am talking strictly to the working practitioner; these are PRACTICAL concerns, not theoretical ones.

Title of File: HERBAL-MEDICAL GLOSSARY

Description: Copyright 1995 by Michael Moore. Use it, share it, just don't sell it or change it in any way (unless you get my permission) The definitions below are pertinent to my use of those terms as an herbalist. Those of you versed in medicine may find the emphasis sometimes peculiar. You are used to employing those parts of anatomy, physiology and pharmacology that explain phenomena treatable with Standard Practice Medicine. Clinical diagnosis uses the physical sciences to help define conditions with medical implications, even though much of both physiology and pharmacology deals with observations that may not have medical treatment. It isn't unimportant, simply not pertinent.
