Healing with the Herbs of Life, is one our most popular herb books. Taking two 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 Healing with the Herbs of Life is the best western herb books now available. With all the popular herb books out there, Lesley has set a new standard because it is written by a practicing herbalist with over twenty years clinical experience. If you follow the information within you will 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 is unique about Healing with the Herbs of Life is the newest 114 page chapter on Treatment of Specific Conditions, fully based on my clinical experience using Western and Chinese herbs. I have written this chapter to provide quick easy remedies for the lay herbalist as well as included specific Chinese and Western herbs and 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.
