I enthusiastically welcome this book, a collaboration written by experienced clinicians within the fields of conventional, integrative and natural medicine for health professionals who wish to effectively counsel their patients on the safe and beneficial use of dietary supplements. As the title suggests, this book addresses herb-drug interactions, nutrient-drug interactions, and drug-induced nutrient depletions in a clinically oriented, and integrated manner. The authors demonstrate an appropriate balance between recommendation and risk based upon the overall strength of the scientific evidence and their own clinical experience. The text is well referenced, balanced and objective and the use of icons and summary tables allows the clinician to quickly identify areas of potential risk, as well as potential benefit. This book is a major contribution to the field of integrative medicine and an invaluable resource to practitioner and researcher alike.

The most comprehensive and substantiated resource I have seen on drug/herb/nutrient interactions. I was especially impressed by the interdisciplinary team’s ranking of the quality of the available evidence as well as their careful consideration of beneficial interactions, not just adverse effects. Required for every clinician serious about integrative medicine.
