For the many years Plant Healer Quarterly has been published, our mission has been to inform, equip and empower a more naturally healthful world, including providing the fundamental skills and tools needed for developing the most effective medicinal herb practice possible. 

To this end, we have compiled a series of books for clinical practitioners and all those intending to treat their selves and others with botanicals, beginning with the huge first Herbal Clinician (Volume I), and including this 2nd volume and subsequent titles.

Compiled here are an additional 33 original articles drawn from Plant Healer Quarterly issues and Class Essays ebooks, authored by 20 of the most insightful and compelling writers ever in the field of herbalism.


Herbal Clinician II has been organized into three sections, covering:

Intake insights and protocol, placebos, success criteria, marginalized populations, integrating herbalism into the conventional medical system, and the intersection of nursing and plant medicine
Sensory explorations, energetics, constitutional and humoral approaches, tongue assessment, and condition evaluation
Essential science for herbalists, minimizing bias, red flag symptoms, blood work, lab values, herbal constituents, dosage, herb/drug interactions, contraindications, and patient compliance.
