5.0 out of 5 stars A must for anyone interested in Hildegard, 22 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hildegard Von Bingen's "Physica": The Complete English Translation of Her Classic Work on Health and Healing (Hardcover)
This book which consists of nine books (plants, elements, trees, stones, fish, birds, animals, reptiles and metals) can be considered the foundation of Hildegard's medicine. Hildegard explains the nature and benefits/dangers of each creature and element to human beings. Physica is very easy to read unlike her books on theology which require background knowledge of Christianity. As a naturopath ho practices Hildegard's medicine, I refer to this book quite from time to time.

5.0 out of 5 stars very interesting book, 5 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hildegard Von Bingen's "Physica": The Complete English Translation of Her Classic Work on Health and Healing (Hardcover)
I bought this after reading Dr Wighard Strehlow Hildegards medicine. The more i read about Hildegards healing methods and attitude to health the more i realised how modern a lot of her ideas were and how ahead of her time she was in many of her ideas to health. Its worth thinking beyond the medieval prose that is interesting in itself and looking at her attitude to health as she echos a lot of what we know is good practice ie rest sensible eating habits and moderation in all things.a gem
