About this book

Language: German

Those who previously looked at mushrooms only from the point of view of them being "edible" or "poisonous", will, with this this comprehensive and technically sound book, see that fungi can also be used for treating diseases, because they contain a vast reservoir of medically relevant ingredients. The author introduces to the reader – no matter their previous knowledge – the fascinating world of healing mushrooms. You will learn everything worth knowing about the world's most important species of fungi, which are presented in highly detailed portraits. Information on the cultural history and other uses, for example in the kitchen, are not overlooked. Complex matters are presented in an intelligible and sound fashion. Physicians, herbalists, scientists and mycologists will appreciate the included chemical formulas. Brilliant, clear photos make this unique work a very special experience, not least for all fungal friends.

Summary in German:
Wer Pilze bisher nur unter dem Gesichtspunkt »essbar« oder »giftig« betrachtete, der erfährt in diesem umfassenden und fachlich fundierten Buch, dass Pilze auch zur Behandlung von Erkrankungen einsetzbar sind, da sie ein riesiges Reservoir an medizinisch relevanten Inhaltsstoffen enthalten. Der Autor versteht es, den Leser – egal mit welchen Vorkenntnissen – für die faszinierende Welt der heilenden Pilze zu begeistern. Er erfährt alles Wissenswerte zu den weltweit wichtigsten Pilzarten, die in hochdetaillierten Porträts vorgestellt werden. Dabei kommen auch Informationen zur Kulturgeschichte und zu weiteren Verwendungen, z. B in der Küche, nicht zu kurz. Komplizierte Sachverhalte werden ebenso verständlich wie fundiert dargestellt. Mediziner, Naturheilkundler, Naturwissenschaftler und Mykologen werden die enthaltenen chemischen Formeln zu schätzen wissen. Brillante, aussagekräftige Fotos machen dieses einzigartige Werk nicht zuletzt für alle Pilzfreunde zu einem Erlebnis der besonderen Art.
