Dear Friends of AHP,
AHP is pleased to announce the release of a Monograph and Therapeutic Compendium for Devil’s Club (Oplopanax horridus).
Devil’s Club is one of the most important botanicals for Native Americans throughout the plant’s growing range, most especially in the Pacific Northwest. While never a superstar in the herbal products industry, perhaps rightfully so due to its ecological sensitivity, it is important to catalogue its known benefits. This is the first monograph of its kind on Oplopanax, and we are happy to be able to highlight some lesser known uniquely North American natives.
According to Eric Yarnell ND, Associate Editor and sponsor of the monograph, “Devil’s club is such a revered herb traditionally in the Pacific Northwest, and I find it so useful in my clinical practice that I was excited at the possibility of sponsoring the development of this AHP monograph and therapeutic review. The monograph will help practitioners to better understand how to effectively use devil’s club for their patients.”
AHP wants to express sincere thanks to the following individuals and companies who provided support in the development of this monograph:
- Heron Botanicals
- Dr Moses D Goldberg
- Joanna Helms (Mama Jo’ Sunshine Herbals)
- Samuel Dunbar
- Kara Noyes
- Marina Khusid
- James Greene
By individuals, companies, and organizations who graciously assisted us in gathering the authentic samples needed for the development of this monograph:
