the book of herbal wisdom

by matthew wood buy on amazon

"Herbalism is a subject rooted in the folk medicines of the world's civilizations. Each culture brings a different understanding of the concept of healing according to its traditions. Wood starts by explaining some of these concepts and traditions. For example, he explains North American Shamanism with its dream understandings of the herbs, and Chinese medicine with its yin and yang principles as well as its hot, dry, moist and wet concepts. We are introduced to the Doctrine of Signatures and to the Four Humors. To understand the mindset is to understand the reasons these medicines were used-an ambitious goal quite credibly done in the time and space he devotes to it." - Maria Bohle
