Synopsis : Practical Herbalism is destined to become a favorite reference for experienced herbalists and natural health newcomers alike. Drawing on nearly two decades of personal experience, observation, and research, Dr. Fritchey provides a refreshing and enlightening historical perspective, and a bounty of reassuring, down-to-earth methods for using commonly found or easily grown medicinal herbs.
Practical Herbalism will take you on a journey from its "ancient roots" to modern science beginning with the evolution of Herbal Medicine in the West. Learn how the healing salvation of God-given herbs was dragged from common knowledge to "quackery," and how the revival of interest in natural health might have saved thousands of years of herbal wisdom from eradication. Learn simplified processes for gathering, preserving, and making good medicine from everyday plants—techniques once familiar to every self-sufficient household. Learn why and what an herb does is more important than what it is. Then follow along as Dr. Fritchey takes you on an in-depth exploration of 46 very common "Ordinary Plants with Extraordinary Powers." Learn when and how you can use the herbs that can be readily found in your own neighborhood or easily grown in your own garden just as herbalists and wise-women have done for centuries. Compare notes with the ancients, and find validation in current scientific studies. Most of all, find comfort and reassurance in the healing gifts of a Loving Creator which have been placed all around us in anticipation of our every need.
Practical Herbalism is authoritative in its research, and extensive in its scope. At the same time, Dr. Fritchey simplifies and demystifies herbal medicine, and puts it back within the grasp of all who want to reclaim some control over their health options. Products can be taken away, but knowledge is irrevocable. Here is the knowledge you need to help yourself, your family, and your clients—whatever the future may bring.
A propos de l'auteur: Philip L Fritchey, M.H., N.D., CNHP
Since rediscovering his family herbal heritage in the late 1980’s, and recovering from a personal health crisis of his own, Dr. Fritchey has become a vocal advocate and nationally recognized lecturer on traditional herbalism. While working for nearly a decade alongside his wife in a busy Natural Health practice in central Georgia, he secured his Naturopathic degree and Master Herbalist letters from the Trinity College of Natural Health. He has written the Herbology curriculum for the National Association of Certified Natural Health Professionals, and now spends most of his time traveling and teaching the good news of the Biblical promise of herbs "for the healing of the nations." When not on the road, he formulates and compounds botanical remedies and skin care products that are distributed nationwide. He relies heavily on garden grown and wild-crafted native plants, and celebrates Nature’s abundant apothecary.
