This is the best book on herbalism I have ever seen. It is for the novice as well as advanced practictioners. The author classifies most if not all herbs under various healing properties such as blood cleansers, germ killers, etc. This is very helpful. He also gives a balanced diet one should follow to maintain excellent health. The book is logical, well written and in depth. A masterpiece.
Was not impressed... However, it might be useful for those who know nothing about herbs.
From the back of the book: "The Way of Herbs is an essential manual for gaining and maintaining good health through a holistic approach, a natural path to well being.
The three functions of herbs
eight traditional methods of herbal therapy
a macrobiotic diet--the key to all successful healing
herbal treatments for cancer, herpes, overweightness, acne, arthritis, back pain, colds and flu
use and dosage for eight western herbs and thirty-one important Chinese herbs
how to purchase, grow and store herbs
traveler's first aid
And Much More!"
An Herbalist's classic. Always helpful!
Great information for the Herbal enthusiast. I'm definitely keeping this one for my reference library!
Same as Dianne L.'s description EXCEPT herbs described, descriptions, use and dosage is for EIGHTY (not eight) western herbs.
