This book is more helpful for healthy living than any prescription in the country. When my mom had cancer and followed the instructions, the cancer went away and she was healthy for over twenty years. When cancer came again and she did the "normal" chemotherapy, it caused strokes and other bad side effects but did not cure the cancer. I used it and cured diabetes in four months. I recommend this book to anyone who has health problems, and to anyone who does not want to get health problems.

No stone left unturned in this book! This man has a thorough and accurate understanding of herbs and their uses. He was a Master Herbalist and I have many books on this subject...this one, however, is the 20th anniversary, expanded version issue and is the Bible of them all. I promise you, even if you're traveling, you will want to keep it with you. His personal life story is a miracle to me, he was an abandoned child found by some loving people in an orphanage when he was a young boy. And what a contribution to humanity this man has made! It's the best book that exist about the use of herbs. Also, helps you to identify plants and tells you what parts to use. I love his work, it's written for all the right reasons, he had been critically ill in his youth and his work sprung from those hardships. It is inspired!

This book is long, but it is the best book on using herbs in print, in English. Medicina en la cocina (Bolsillo Zeta Edicion Limitada) (Spanish Edition) is great if you can read Spanish. Dr Christopher's books are all fantastic. If you need a simple primer, you might look at There Are No Incurable Diseases: Dr. Schulze's 30-Day Cleansing & Detoxification Program, and Common Sense Health and Healing. Dr. Christopher's stuff works. It's that simple.

Dr. Christopher was an amazing pioneer in herbal medicine. The thick, lengthy book will never leave the wondering mind hungry, delving deeply into a variety of herbs with insightful personal usage, history, and formulas. The book begins with paragraphs under different conditions, but the heart of the book is the herbal details, where Christopher clearly expresses his love, admiration, and faith in natural medicine. He cites other herbalists such as Thomson and Shook, following in the same vein of thought as Eclectics before him, stretching it even further with personal opinions and sage advise. While some of the output is slightly dated, most of it is not, still stands as true today, and will always be invaluable information.

If you're ever seeking a reference guide for herbs, this is surely the one, as Christopher goes as far as to describe in a detailed, eye-catching way the habitat, full description from leaf to odor to flower to taste to stem, to properties, dose, preparation, therapeutic action, oral/anal/skin administration of all. So many herbs are covered in such rich detail it's impossible not to use this as a guide when learning a new herb. As many Eclectics were, Christopher was a big fan of the herb Lobelia, devoting here an entire chapter on it alone. However, the old "puke your brains out" use is now considered unsafe and outdated, but some of the herbs recommendations still stand strong today.

After the massive herbal index is read, there's a marvelous chapter on collecting herbs, preparing them in a huge amount of way, from tinctures to compounds to cerates to suppositories to pills to capsules to washes and baths, and much more.

I stumbled onto Dr. John R. Christopher's "School of Natural Healing" after buying several tinctures still sold by his family. The book is now one of the most important that I have, and I'm amazed by the wealth of knowledge it contains. I've learned quite a bit from it. The book contains Dr. Christopher's biography, a thorough explanation of various herbs, and recipes for all his formulations that he used in his career as one of the most famous American naturopathic practitioners of the 20th Century.

All of my teachers and mentors, from Rosemary Gladstar to Michael Tierra have all touted Dr. Christopher and this book! We even have it at the natural products cooperative where I work in our library. It really brings home herbal medicine and formulation. If you have ever used the Dr. John R. Christopher formulas that are available in health food stores, you know how good they are. All of the formulas are contained within this book and many more that are certain to find use in every home interested in empowering themselves through herbal healing.

Head and shoulders above the rest. Time wouldn't allow how highly I prize this book. Gives definitions of therapeutic terms(which is a life saver for a person new to herbs and herbal medicine) also gives information on combining herbs for best results. The 25th edition would be the only one I would by as it is updated for measurements, as well as having complete formulations for every one of Christophers' remedies. As someone new to Herbs, I was able to pick up information useable to me right away and apply it.The book includes excellent cross references for Latin and common names for herbs, as well as copious names used for each herb in case your vernacular calls the plant by a different name (also includes international names). Contains Recipes for a mucusless diet, three day cleansing program and lots of real case scenarios.

BEWARE!!! This book can get addictive! You will start looking up remedies for everyone around you and spouting solutions to ailments of those you talk with!
