Herbal Medic
by Sam Coffman

With a focus on herbal medicine and first-aid essentials, Green Beret medic and clinical herbalist Sam Coffman presents this comprehensive home reference on medical emergency preparedness for times when professional medical care is unavailable. Though no one likes to think about them, disasters and serious accidents can happen any time, anywhere, and it's all too easy to take for granted the availability of trained first responders or access to emergency medical resources. This practical, comprehensive guide is based on the assumption that a reader may be in a remote location or in a post-disaster situation where professional medical care is unavailable. Written by a former Green Beret medic with more than 25 years of combined field and clinical experience in both military medicine and herbalism, Herbal Medic covers first-aid essentials, such how to assess a situation and a person in need of treatment and distinguish between illness and injury, as well how to prepare and use herbs when there is no access to conventional medical treatment. In addition, the book provides a basic introduction to herbal medicine, with detailed entries on the best herbs to use in treatment; information on disease in the body and how herbs work against it; instructions for making herbal preparations; a list of those herbs the author has found most useful in his clinical experience; and a wide array of specific herbal care protocols for a multitude of acute health issues. AUTHOR: Sam Coffman is a clinical herbalist who began his medical career with more than 10 years as a Green Beret medic. For more than 25 years, he has taught wilderness first-aid certification, remote and post-disaster herbal medicine, and urban and primitive survival skills. He is the founder of The Human Path, a preparedness school based in San Antonio, Texas, and cofounder of Herbal Medics, a nonprofit organisation that teachers herbal medicine and preparedness skills in medically underserved areas in the U.S. and abroad. He also teaches survival and austere medicine to doctors, nurses, and other medical staff who are preparing to embark into disaster-relief areas around the world. SELLING POINTS: . Currently, there is no comprehensive herbal guide to first aid and medical treatment that addresses scenarios where medical professionals or other trained first responders are unable to help. . In emergency situations, herbal remedies may be just as effective, and are often more accessible, than conventional medicine. Herbal remedies can be prepared and stored long-term, and used when needed.
