Holistic herbal: a safe and practical guide to making and using herbal remedies

Holistic herbal: a safe and practical guide to making and using herbal remedies By David Hoffman

New jacket edition of this classic herbal by internationally renowned herbalist David Hoffman. Easy to use, the herbal is hugely popular with herbalists and laypeople worldwide.
A-Z herbal, covering over 200 different medicinal herbs and plants. This section comprises the main part of the book and is full of detailed information about each herb.

The Holistic Herbal covers everything you need to know about growing, gathering, preparing, using and taking herbal medicines to improve and maintain health. With simple b/w line drawn herb illustrations throughout, the book is extremely attractive and contains:
  •  a simple introduction to health, well-being and how your body works.
  •  a guide to specific health problems and concerns (you don't need to be sick to take a herbal cure!) and ′which herb′ for a range of conditions. 
This is a beautiful and fascinating book, an enthralling gateway into a wonderful field. The beginner can understand and the expert really use it. David is to be congratulated on his achievement. The Hermetic Wisdom laid down as first principle that the universe is Mind, an ocean of living Intelligence; and as second principle the Law of Correspondences as above, so below; as in the greatest, so in the smallest; as in the macrocosm, so in the microcosm. Holistic healing reveals the great truth. Thus reflexology can discover all imbalances in the bodily organism from the feet, iridology from the eye, and true phrenology from the conformation of the cranium. Every part contains the whole, as is so beautifully demonstrated by the shattered holographic plate. And now herbalism reveals all the secret gifts of nature for holistic healing.
Our minds are still overcoming centuries of conditioning to ‘apartness’ thinking. The holistic world view lifts beyond such separation. We learn to see Truth as a hovering crystalline structure of many facets In holistic thinking we become eclectic and learn to draw our truth from many complementary sources. Thus herbalism opens up a wonderful field for natural healing and this beautiful book by David Hoffman will guide many into it, for it is an essential aspect of natural therapy. In our age of drugs and chemicals, here is a path to safe treatment which respects the Oneness of Life. This book is delightfully illustrated and produced, and the Findhorn Press is to be congratulated. All who are drawn into our movement for regeneration will want to possess it.
