Healing with the Herbs of Life by Lesley Tierra
Lesley’s new book, Healing with the Herbs of Life, is hot off the printing press and now on our shelves. Taking her 2 years to update, revise, combine and add on to her original books, The Herbs of Life and Healing with Chinese Herbs, this 438 page volume is a must-have for lay herbalists and professional practitioners alike.
To quote Michael Tierra (and he’s not just tooting Lesley’s horn, though thank you!),
‘Healing with the Herbs of Life is the best western herb book now available. With all the popular herb books out there, Lesley has set a new standard because it’s written by a practicing herbalist with over 20 years clinical experience. If you follow the information within you’ll be given maximum opportunity of success in treating yourself and others. A must have.’
Lesley says that ‘besides the expanded chapters on diet, materia medica, diagnosis and tidbits throughout, what’s unique about Healing with the Herbs of Life is the newest 114 page chapter on Treatment of Specific Conditions, fully based on her clinical experience using Western and Chinese herbs. She has written this chapter to provide quick easy remedies for the lay herbalist as well as included specific Chinese and Western herbs/formulas for the professional to treat the many TCM patterns underlying the addressed ailments.
This book focuses on healing, not curing, by addressing dietary, lifestyle and emotional issues along with giving herbal and adjunct therapies to heal the whole person.
