Abstract

Consultation-liaison psychiatrists evaluate a wide variety of patients who are often disillusioned with conventional medical care and are seeking to gain some measure of control over their illness. With the growing popularity of alternative health care practices, consultation-liaison psychiatrists must learn more about the implications of herbal medicine usage. This review provides an overview of herbal medicines, a vital component of the alternative medicine movement.
