Soaring Bear began collecting data about herbs during the 1970's and is the author 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 focus on quantitative structure activity relationships (QSAR) and chemical interactions provides Bear with a unique perspective on how herbs work. Bear has been employed with the National Library of Medicine making improvements in the MeSH vocabulary of Medline.
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.
