Herbal Medicine sometimes referred to as Herbalism or Botanical Medicine, is the use of herbs for their therapeutic or medical value. An herb is a plant or plant part valued for its medical, aromatic or savory qualities. Herb plants produce and contain a variety of chemical substances that act upon the body.
Herbal medicine has been used for centuries. In fact, there has been evidence showing that herbal remedies have been around since the Neanderthal period about 60,000 years ago. Other evidence of the use of herbs for medical purposes has appeared in cave paintings estimated to have been made between 13,000 and 25,000 BC. Most of the synthetic prescription drugs made today is based on naturally occurring substances and capabilities found in plants.
In fact, many of the familiar pharmaceutical medications we use today were originally created from natural ingredients. Drugs like opium (from poppies), aspirin (from willow bark), digitalis (from foxglove) and quinine (from the cinchona tree.)
Herbal Medicine can be broadly classified into various basic systems: Traditional Chinese Herbalism, which is part of Traditional Oriental Medicine, Ayurvedic Herbalism, which is derived from Ayurveda, and Western Herbalism, which originally came from Greece and Rome to Europe and then spread to North and South America.
Chinese and Ayurvedic Herbalism have developed into highly developed systems of diagnosis and treatment over the centuries. Western Herbalism is today for the most part a system of folk medicine.

For example, St. John's Wort is widely used in the treatment of mild depression without the need for Prozac. St. John's Wort does not have the side effects such as that of Prozac. Some Ayurvedic herbs are very useful for reducing cholesterol, diabetes, etc. Similarly, the popularity of Ginseng and Ginkgo biloba (ginkgo) is rising due to its beneficial effects.

Pretty comprehensive, covers just about everything
As the author of Chronic Migraine Relief: Paths to Heal Your Brain I'm used to looking at research and searching for natural answers to problems. While the book could've used a table of contents, the conditions are in alphabetical order so it's not hard to figure out. The only downside to this approach is if a condition you'd like info on is not covered, you wouldn't know until you've leafed through that section.
Overall, though, the authors give great ideas on how to manage a very wide range of conditions, commenting on herbs, supplements, vitamins, minerals and other natural interventions (such as chiropractic, yoga, acupuncture and massage).
This e-book is very informative and lists many "cures" that one could find in their kitchen. It could be more thorough in some areas, though. I prefer Susan Weed's herbal books, most of which are out of print. So, in a pinch, this book is very helpful.
