2/4/2009

HOHENWALD, Tenn. Health Resources Unlimited recently published Herb, Nutrient and Drug Interactions: Clinical Implications and Therapeutic Strategies, a resource for retail clinicians and pharmacists that accounts for the growing number of consumers who are supplementing with herbs, vitamins and minerals in conjunction with traditional prescription or non-prescription therapies.

The clinical resource presents detailed, evidence-based coverage of the most commonly encountered therapeutic agents in modern clinical practice and is designed to help the practitioner to safely and effectively integrate herbal, nutrient and drug therapy for patients.

Combining pharmaceuticals with herbs or nutrients may complement or interfere with a drug's therapeutic action or may increase adverse effects. Furthermore, drug-induced depletion of essential nutrients can occur. Comprehensive clinical data, quick-reference features, and the insight and expertise of trusted authorities offer a deeper understanding of how herbal remedies and nutritional supplements interact with pharmaceuticals.

The resource, which includes 70 comprehensive monographs of herb-drug and nutrient-drug interactions, covers the most commonly used herbs and nutrients in health-related practice. Each herb and nutrient monograph features summary tables and concise, practical suggestions that provide quick and easy reference and complement the systematic review and in-depth analysis.
