The technical terms of (herbal) medicine are
often difficult and obscure, but they represent an indispensable, precise shorthand when describing

herbal) medicine, and you may even come across a few in some reference books. The Glossary of Medical
Effects is divided into sections for easy access, please feel free to browse and learn. Enjoy...
