Herbalist Books to Read

Although herbal medicine has been around for centuries and societies all over the world have relied on it to satisfy their healthcare requirements, it appears to have undergone a recent revival, with an increasing number of individuals interested in learning more about alternative medicine. Herbal medicine has solutions for almost any condition that affects every system in our body. Skin problems; digestive problems, indigestion, heartburn; hormone imbalances, high blood pressure, and ulcers are some of the common conditions that can be treated with herbal medicines. So, for our readers who want to learn more about herbal treatments, here are six of our favorite books on the subject.

We propose that you start your adventure into the realm of herbal medicine and natural treatments by reading Dr. JJ Pursell’s acclaimed book, “The Herbal Apothecary: 100 Medicinal Herbs and How to Use Them.” This thorough and aesthetically appealing introduction to plant-based medicine, backed by science and expertise, is an excellent place to begin learning about natural medicines.

Plants for the People: A Modern Guide to Plant Medicine

Plants for the People (due out June 18) is a beginner’s introduction to plant medicine as well as a great source of self-care, energy, and well-being, providing an alternative to the frantic pace of modern life. Erin Lovell Verinder, a master herbalist and nutritionist, analyzes 40 medicinal plants and teaches readers how to use them, blending old wisdom with a modern approach to plant medicine.

The Practice of Traditional Western Herbalism: Basic Doctrine, Energetics, and Classification, by Matthew Wood

Don’t be put off by the lengthy title. This is a really approachable book. Wood has studied and revived North American herbal traditions.
