With more than 180 easy-to-follow recipes and written by a well-respected urban herbalist, The Gift of Healing Herbs explores herbology as the “people’s medicine”—freely available to all—and as a powerful yet gentle way to heal the body, mind, heart, and soul. You will learn about:
• The true nature of health and the causes of illness
• The physical systems of the body and the common and not-so-common herbs for tonifying them
• Recipes for teas, brews, and how to incorporate herbs into your daily life
• The relationship between our body systems and the elements of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water
Filled with personal stories, case histories, prayers, meditations, and more, The Gift of Healing Herbs is equal parts inspiration and instruction drawn from the author’s decades spent teaching and practicing herbal medicine in a spiritual, earth-based, non-dogmatic style. The author explores how one’s personal story turns into one’s embodied physicality, ultimately revealing unique paths of healing for each reader.
