Natural remedies Their origins and uses By Finn Sandberg And Desmond Corrigan

This textbook is the result of a Swedish-Irish collaboration. It is based on a Swedish textbook (published in 1993), which in turn was based on a compendium: Finn Sandberg, Phytopharmaca, therapy, issued in Uppsala in 1983. Its principle was that the medicinal plantsare arranged according to the therapeutic use, i.e. the internationally (WHO) accepted ATCcode with some modifications.
