5.0 out of 5 stars Herbal medicine is a big, big subject....., 1 Mar 2011
This review is from: The Complete Herbal Tutor: The Definitive Guide to the Principles and Practices of Herbal Medicine (Paperback)
but in 250 pages Anne McIntyre has managed to touch on all of the relevant aspects of herbal medicine, from observing different traditions around the world, through to explanations of constituents of herbs, how they heal, what they heal, includes details of how to conduct a consultation, a materia medica, colourful photos of herbs and much much more. I have a lot of herb books, but this is by far one of the most comprehensive I have read. I am in my first year at University studying to become a medical herbalist, and found the answers to many unanswered questions in this book. The book has a lovely style and flows effortlessly from one section to another. A thoroughly enjoyable read, I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in becoming a medical herbalist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource, 8 Nov 2010
This review is from: The Complete Herbal Tutor: The Definitive Guide to the Principles and Practices of Herbal Medicine (Paperback)
A truly excellent book from a reputable herbalist. The materia medica section covers 150 of the most commonly used herbs in western herbalism (including 'adopted' herbs such as Ashwaghanda)with the therapeutic actions, parts used, phytoconstituents and cautions for use. There are some simple facts on making herbal preparations and on growing them. All in all, a useful book.

Strikes a good balance and makes a very good starting point, but always consult more than one "herbal" rather than stick a pin in a list.

This review is from: The Complete Herbal Tutor: The Definitive Guide to the Principles and Practices of Herbal Medicine (Paperback)
The Complete Herbal Tutor is a great introduction for any beginning herbalist and provides a great directory of 150 herbs and their uses. Everything is explained very clearly and I would recommend this book to everyone interested in herbalism! It even includes a chapter on how to grow and harvest herbs, with clear instructions and a guide of weather and soil conditions needed for each herb. The book includes everything you might need to know on this subject and all the information is beautifully presented with lots of photographs :)

This review is from: The Complete Herbal Tutor: The Definitive Guide to the Principles and Practices of Herbal Medicine (Paperback)
Where do I start? A fantastic introduction to western herbal medicine for the home herbalist and beginner, combined with a well laid-out reference book for the professional. The clear photographs and drawings enable easy identification of plants whilst the usage instructions and methods of preparations are very well explained. The explanation of body systems and health problems are clear and concise, linking in very well with how to address many ailments with herbs.

This review is from: The Complete Herbal Tutor: The Definitive Guide to the Principles and Practices of Herbal Medicine (Paperback)
What I liked most about this book was the description of herb chemistries, benefits to the body, and warnings. I keep it open whenever I am creating a tea, tincture, or salve. Must read for people using herbal remedies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book for beginners and advanced, 10 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete Herbal Tutor: The Definitive Guide to the Principles and Practices of Herbal Medicine (Paperback)
This is a superbly laid out book, very clear and concise, covering all aspects of herbalism from growing, preparation. There is a good visual guide to the herbs covered, a great breakdown of how to prepare them, what they are used for, dosages and how to administer the result, how well researched the effects are etc. A great section on ailments, breaking them down into categories such as male problems, digestion, and then listing the symptoms and what herbs to use.

I am currently studying to become a medical herbalist, and this book was a wonderful find.

i couldn't recommend this book enough to anyone studying, practicing or just curious.
