This indispensable work has been a trusted botanical resource since it was first published. In this newest 15th edition, Dr. Christopher provides in depth information on over 100 common herbs, including: Latin and common names, botanical descriptions, usage and action, preparation, dosage, and administration, as well as case histories, horticultural, and storage information.
This text combines his methods and famous formulas in an easy-to-use volume for personal and classroom study. Originally presented as part of a series of lectures given by Dr. Christopher to groups interested in natural remedies, the first edition appeared as a correspondence course of twenty lessons taken directly from those lectures. In 1979, as demand increased for this valuable herbal information, he decided to publish the course in book form so everyone who wished could learn about his successful approach to healing with herbs.
