Product Description: This unique book is derived from the teachings of the great eclectic naturopathic physician, John Bastyr - recognized by his peers as one of the greatest natural healers in the world. Through practical advice and insight drawn from Dr. Bastyr's notes, lectures, and writings, as well as the author's own clinical experiments with plants during 25 years of practice, this carefully compiled volume provides a distinctive picture of the man and his medicine.

  • Discussions of the author's actual experience with plants recount real-world findings in a clinical environment.
  • Accurate doses for herbal therapies are provided, disputing many of the "accepted" doses that are often too conservative to be effective.
  • Eclectic herbalism, a highly effective form of medicine, is introduced and taught so that the practitioner can adopt it in practice.
  • The preservation of Dr. Bastyr's knowledge and work occupies an important historical niche, providing unique and practical insight into the work of a key figure in the development of herbal medicine and the naturopathic tradition.
  • Simple language and easy-to-understand discussions break down complex medicine into concepts that can be applied to practice.
  • Only clinically tried-and-true applications of the plant medicine are given, making this book concise, to-the-point, and relevant.
  • The use of lesser known plants provides coverage of remedies not commonly seen in recent studies.
  • An alphabetical organization according to physiological categories makes it easy to locate all the plants in a wide variety of categories, such as alteratives, skin remedies, astringents, diuretics, etc.
  • Anecdotal evidence based on the author's and Dr. Bastyr's findings show specific examples of the results that might be expected from the use of certain plants.
  • Practical advice is offered rather than scientific evidence, comprehensively capturing a key piece of the tradition of herbal medicine.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
