Herbalists Kerry Bone and Simon Mills Earn Prestigious Literature Award for a Second Time

Standard Process Inc. recognizes and congratulates the herbalists as the first authors to earn their second James A. Duke Excellence in Botanical Literature Award

PALMYRA, Wis. (March 24, 2014)—For the second time in 10 years, renowned herbalists Kerry Bone and Simon Mills have earned the American Botanical Council’s (ABC) James A. Duke Excellence in Botanical Literature Award. The 2013 honor was given to Bone and Mills for their work on the second edition of Principles and Practice of Phytotherapy: Modern Herbal Medicine (Churchill Livingstone, 2013), an herbal medicine clinical practice guide used by natural medicine practitioners throughout the world.

Professor Kerry Bone receives his second James A. Duke Excellence in Botanical Literature award.

“The landscape of herbal medicine is evolving every day,” said Bone, co-founder and director of research and development for Australian herbal supplement manufacturer MediHerb. “With so much information now available, we needed to carefully review everything for its relevance to the clinical practitioner.”

In 2005, ABC established the James A. Duke Excellence in Botanical Literature Award to recognize books that provide significant contributions to literature in the fields of botany, taxonomy, ethnobotany, phytomedicine, and other disciplines related to the field of medicinal plants. First to receive the award were colleagues Bone and Mills for their book, The Essential Guide to Herbal Safety (Churchill Livingstone, 2005), which offered authoritative information and guidance on the safe use of herbs for all practitioners looking to integrate herbs into their practice.

The second edition of Principles and Practice of Phytotherapy, published in 2013, offers practitioners extensively updated and relevant clinical data regarding the use of herbal remedies. It also provides new insight on herbal management of approximately 100 modern health conditions.

Principles and Practices of Phytotherapy, written by herbalists Kerry Bone and Simon Mills, offers new insight on herbal management of modern health conditions.

Principles and Practice of Phytotherapy, the pair’s first collaboration, was originally published in 1999. With over 40,000 copies in circulation today, it is the leading text on herbal medicine in naturopathic and herbal colleges around the world. The second edition of the book took 14 years to publish.
