Soaring Bear began collecting data about herbs during the early 1970's (with a focus on toxicology). A segment of it was the basis of "Dental Self Help" (1980). After earning his B.S. in Biochemistry with honors (Phi Beta Kappa, Magna Cum Laude) Bear studied molecular modeling of topoisomerase interactions with DNA at University of Arizona, leading to a Ph.D in 1998. His research on quantitative structure activity relationships (QSAR) and chemical interactions provides a unique perspective on how herbs work. He created HerbMed.org and edited (until 2000) over ten thousand quick summaries and links into Medline for 150 plants. His work at the National Library of Medicine in the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) section at completely revamping the herbs, Alt Med and chemistry parts of Mesh, benefiting millions of searches done every day on Medline/Pubmed ! Now seeking SQL db design assistance.
Few others have the depth of biochemical education plus personal experience
that Soaring Bear has with herbal medicine. Dr. Bear has a unique perspective
in respecting the potency of herbs as well as understanding the chemistry
and toxicology, a combination which is so important in understanding adverse
effects and herb-drug interactions. Hunting for herbal and medical information? If it's there I'll find it!
