Item description for Holistic Healing by Hildegard of Bingen, John S. Kulas & Patrick Madigan...
Overview Hildegard of Bingen's suggestions and prescriptions for health are explained in this translation of her chief work Causae et Curae. Although the holy Hildegard gained her knowledge of nature's healing powers eight hundred years ago, it remains relevant and timely today. Hildegard, the youngest of ten children, was born in 1098 and died in 1179. Throughout her life she suffered from a delicate and weak constitution. As the abbess of Rupertsberg and a convent visitor, Hildegard traveled widely and served the clergy and aristocracy as a confidant and advisor. She also profoundly influenced the convent and folk medicine traditions of her time. Holistic Healing concerns the causes of illnesses and nature's remedies for them. The sources of her knowledge are not clear to this day. Hildegard discusses the use of natural ingredients in diet and therapy to alleviate pain and to foster healing and gives insights into human physiology and pathology. She also comments on animal diseases and their treatment, as well as other aspects of agrarian economy.
