The Theory of Endobiogeny Volume 4: Bedside Handbook concisely presents core elements of the theory and practice of clinical Endobiogeny. It is an essential reference for Endobiogenists and for integrative medicine practitioners looking to expand their practice. Signs, symptoms and biology of function indexes are correlated to each other according to principles of integrative endocrinology and physiology. Over 20 common illnesses are succinctly summarized to be read in under 10 minutes conveying the essence of neuroendocrine causes, mechanisms and effects, followed by prioritization of Endobiogenic treatments based on 40+ years of clinical experience. Finally, for exemplary prescriptions, alternate plants are proposed based on the context of the specific illness. A succinct materia medica summarizes the essence and key role of nearly 80 medicinal plants used in clinical Endobiogeny, offering new insights for experienced prescribers and clear guidance for those new to the usage of medicinal plants.

The Theory of Endobiogeny Volume 4 provides clinicians and researchers with a concise handbook covering the application of Endobiogeny in current clinical practice.
