5.0 out of 5 stars The best book on herbal healing by far!!, October 3, 2003
This review is from: Healing with the Herbs of Life (Paperback)
This is a vastly revised 2nd edition. Anyone perusing the numbers of herbs books available on the market should notice at least two shortcomings: 1. They are not written by practicing clinical herbalists and so they often just pass on 2nd and 3rd hand information 2. They are not wholistic in the sense that they do not integrate diet, lifestyle and the many other factors necessary for a successful therapeutic result. Then there is the current wave of herb books written by inexperienced medical authorities with little or not practical experience in the clinical herbal medicine. Most of these are practically useless.
None of this is true of the latest of edition of this Lesley Tierra's Healing with The Herbs of Life. This book offers the rare opportunity to participate in the herbal healing strategies of one of the world's foremost practicing herbalists with over 20 years clinical experience. Integrating Western and Chinese energetics, it is an excellent source for self healing useful for both the lay person and the professional practitioner.
When the qualities and energetics of diet and lifestyle are appropriately adjusted, herbs offer the most time-honored and effective way for treating the underlying causes of disease rather than merely the outer symptoms. With chapters on "Causes of disease," The Energy of Illness," "The process of Healing," Treatment of Specific conditions" along with other chapters on the "Energy of Food," "Living with the Seasons." The reader is fully empowered in the process of herbal medicine.
This is not simply another herb book with a catalogue of herbs and common indications but allows for a much needed personalized approach to herbal healing.
Another thing the reader will appreciate is that the book is well organized and well written making it all the more enjoyable and useful.
You will not regret owning a copy of this book.
The reader might check out the author's other unique book for kid's, appropriately called The Kid's Herbal.

Just wondering if this review is objective? Is M Tierra related to L Tierra????
I don't have the book, it may be fantastic, but should we get our relatives to review our work?

I guess that's her husband, Michael. I have both Lesley's earlier first version titled "The Herbs of Life" as well as one of Mr. Tierra's books. I must say that they are both good and have been helpful to me in my journey. They both have a knowledge of Chinese, Ayurvedic, and Western herbology and that is what we need.

No, I believe that Lesley & Michael are man & wife. They do have a daughter who is also in the herb & Acupuncture business.
