Later, in the book, Weed shares her knowledge of alternative healing with seven common, abundant herbs. She teaches in an entertaining way the nutrients contained in each, the effect they have on the body, and a variety of ways to prepare and use them. Weed offers her knowledge in such a fashion that the reader suddenly realizes they are refreshed. It's almost as if they just visited an earthy scented forest or a butterfly filled, grass-waving field.
To add further to the good feelings this guide presents Toni Bernhard sprinkles charming illustrations throughout the book and Alan McKnight a watercolor book-cover along with delightful calligraphic plant names. Susan Weed follows through with her belief that healing comes first by nourishment. She feeds reader's souls with the way she writes. One cannot help but relax and have fun reading and using this book.
Though I utilize many other herbals, Healing Wise is the book I usually grab first. Thank you Ms. Weed for opening my eyes (and heart) a little wider to the world around me, I am grateful.
Buy the book, it's wonderfully informative AND entertaining. Get all her other books while you're at it!
With accurate and descriptive passages, it took me back to the time of my Grandmother's own healing touch. Many times I have said to myself, if I only had written down all of Grandmother's teachings, oh the wealth of knowledge I would have had today. I'm happy to say this fascinating folklore tradition has not been lost. Susun Weed has done a magnificent job in capturing the very essence of this unique alternative medicine technique.
After finishing her book, I knew this author had created something that would be cherished and passed on to future generations.
My medicine cabinet has fewer pharmaceuticals these days and an increasing assortment of odd little bottles of tinctures, oils, and salves that I have had great fun making from plants I have found within walking distance of my home.
The voice of Wise Woman wisdom rings throughout this book and I find myself turning to this book for solutions to my various discomforts instead of calling the doctor.
