You can find a plethera of books on Amazon about alternative medicines. Just search for the most popular ones to find the more mainstream. But remember that hundreds of years of education has led us to the common medications that are available today an that "alternative" medications seldom have good scientific backing.

Talk to the employees at a heatlh food store. It's their job to know. Also, find a tea shop. They are very skilled in alternative medicines & herbs.

Google about alternative, herbal and Chinese medicine. If the website is selling something, they use sales talk. Search for actual information on medicines. FDA is a good website to start.

The most definitive source for alternative medicine information is the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database. This is what doctors and pharmacists use to determine possible side effects of all sorts of herbal and natural products.
