A great Herbal!

This book ~ known to me as the 'New Holistic Herbal'~ is an excellent book. Writen by an author who obviously knows his subject in great depth, and is also able to convey the wisdom which goes beyond his own thorough knowledge to the wisdom contained by the herbs themselves; in a clear and engaging manner & with great integrity.

It covers all aspects of Herbal medicine needed to begin quickly to gain both your own instinctive knowledge of the subject, as well as the factual necessities to understand how to treat yourselves and others. The one and only shortcoming I found, was the relatively short encyclopedia of herbs at the end section of the book, which left me wanting for more. It is an extremely good introduction to Herbal medicine and natural healing / healing in harmony with our bodies/ nature (holistic healing/medicine in other words!). It also touches upon other forms of plant therapy such as use of essential oils, a good introduction to the use of flower remedies, & one or two examples of Eastern Herbal uses.

What more could you ask for? A book with depth, integrity & easy to understand by the lay person.. A great book & obviously a work of love, which will foster any latent passion for herbal medicine and natural forms of healing (and infact for this reason DID leave me wanting for more!). An uplifting read, and an indespensible Health directory, which will give you knowledge not only of the herbs needed to treat almost any ailment, but also an understanding, in great depth, of the workings of the human body and its systems, as well as touching, not insignificantly, on our place within 'the system' as a whole.

This book then clearly highlights the importance of life lived with life. That is, it urges us to think about life as a whole. A whole in which our body and the earth's body are as one.
Unfortunately today there is litle time spend for deepening the intimity that we can have with life.
Herbs are in fact nature's aid to our health. All we have to do is to learn a bit more about our own body and that of the planet, and learn to live a life in which both are more connected.
Medicine today is far to chemical. Nature's cures do work, but we must allow them to work. This may mean a change of life-style.
In short, the New Holistic Herbal provides a tool for those willing to start returning to nature and normality.
Long live the herbs!
