Prescription for Herbal Healing Jun 9, 2008
I bought this for my brother's graduation from Pharmacy college - for reference to the world of herbal medecines sold in most retail drug stores and health food stores. I was disappointed in the book - it did not include some of the remedies I have tried for my IBS and candida. Also, I was hoping for information on how much/how often to use the herbs/oils/powders, etc. I would have exchanged it but needed to give my brother something for graduation party.
Excellent source. May 21, 2008
This is an exellent source for all things herbal. I highly reccomend it for the apprentice and well versed herbalist alike.
Try herbs for healing Dec 26, 2007
In 2001 i developed some sort of problem,which was stomach or possibly liver related.I used to drink alot,and i got kind of giddy from it during the day.Something internal was telling me to give the drink away.I did but the lightheadedness stayed.I went to the doctor about it,after some blood tests,they couldnt find one thing wrong with me.Now this lasted about a year on and off.Certain things seemed to trigger it,and i couldnt figure out what to do about it.The doctors seemed useless to me,i wondered if i would get out of this problem i had because even though i didnt drink,there was some days i felt realy out of it.Now i wouldnt take herbal remedys without checking with a doctor first.One day i decided to type in my symptoms on the internet and hit search to see what would happen.Alot of things came up about herbal remedys.So i experimented with some of the bitters herbs,and i couldnt believe what an instant difference it made.One herb which i had the most success with is lavender.First time i took it i knew i was onto something good.Another one was dandelion root,i had them in a tea.There was mixtures of bitters herbs i tried,and some liver tonics.But the tea was the most effective for me.These days every now and then i may feel it a little,just to remind me im not 22 anymore.I do not take the herbal teas unless i need to,because they are less effective if you always take them.Which is why if you have something similar i certainly would give alcohol the boot as i did.I can tell you prior to this i payed little attention to herbal remedys,but they have sold me these days.I experimented with quite a few different herbs,just to see which ones were the most effective.All the time getting better and better.So if you have an ailment of some description,seriously look into this,sometimes you may have to experiment to find the right herb for your case.
A Must Have Book Sep 24, 2007
This book is a valuable resource for anyone who is desiring to find natural healing methods to address various ailments. Tells you WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP YOURSELF. Be your own best Doctor. The author also includes information on herbs which is invaluable. She also lists contraindications where there should be a warning if used with prescription drugs. Her first book, Prescription for Nutritional Healing, was so good that I couldn't resist purchaing the companion volume on healing with herbs. I also purchased a copy of this book for my brother-in-law and had this site ship it to him. He has found help through this book also. I would highly recommend this book, as well as, the author's first book.
