Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It tells how the herbs help and if there are any underlying side affects that you need to look for with the herb. It shows how to grow and harvest. I already have a couple of great homeopathic books and really enjoy "Prescription for Nutritional Healing" that goes indepth to many of the benefits of herbs, vitamins and animo acids, but this particular book has a couple of herbs that I never heard of

This is the kind of book I'll keep close by! Great reference for those SPECIFIC ailments that the herb is listed under , though the herbs in the book have more then those uses. Very beautiful illustrations. Gives you a great idea of what you are looking for. I'm just started into herbalism and am also going to buy the Desk Reference to Nature's Medicine by National Geographic which is referenced to in Medicinal Herbs as it seems to hold a broader spectrum for the plants.

Really like it March 12 2013
By LAK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very solid book. I like the Desk Reference to Natures Medicine better so that is the real reason to give 4 stars. Would have like better cross referencing for use (like an index or appendix that was clear & concise).
