    Bill Nye said a very funny thing a while ago on his new show. Herbs that we use, and mixed - paraphrasing here - and that work, are called medicine. Except very minor treatments, like pink eye and etc, I have never seen remedies work. No matter how much my grandmother brewed them.Book tries to be divided into 4 parts, and then the other main systems. Main parts of the body are like brain and respiratory. Endocrine system is briefly mentioned with...

    "An Herbalist's Guide to Formulary" is not a book you can use by itself unless you have an extensive knowledge of herbs. The author provided only very brief information about the herbs, focusing mainly on how the human body works (digestive, cardiovascular, brain & nervous, immune, hormones, etc.) and her formulas. By which I mean, use 2 parts tonic (supportive, long-term usage herb) to 1 part tier 2 herb to 1 part tier 3 herb to 1 part tier 4 he...

    This was a great book, definitely a must have for anyone seriously interested in herbal medicine but not for the novice.  The historical and modern information and examples given will give you a great starting point for how and what you can use in creating customized herbal formulas.  This review was originally posted on Books In Brogan

I have already bookmarked a throat formula, a formula to support healthy lungs, a formula for chronic stress, and two formulas f...

    I received an e-copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This book is geared toward practitioners rather than the average reader interested in herbs. Reading it from that perspective, I found it to be a useful resource for understanding herbal approaches to common medical issues. I liked that the author recommends different tiers, depending on the presentation of the affliction, and she does a nice job explaining the benef...

    Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC, provided by the author and/or the publisher in exchange for an honest review.A very informative guide on how plants interact with our body systems to alleviate health issues or injuries. The book is broken out into sections by major body system (circulatory, pulmonary, brain/nervous system, immune system, hormones/endocrine system) which makes it easy to find the formulas that may aid whatever malady you're experi...
