In Herbal Clinician III, that includes in-depth pieces on inflammatory, structural, and gut therapeutics from a decidedly herbalist perspective.
The authors of this volume are some of the most respected folks in the field, including:
Matthew Wood, Thomas Easley, Guido Masé, Jim McDonald, Christa Sinadinos, Betsy Miller,
and Dr. Kenneth Proefrock.
Their contributions are not only lengthy and deeply considered, but also personal, evocative, experiential, and often utterly profound.
The attention given to photos, art and layout, intended to balance the wealth of facts and ideas with a botanical feast for the eyes It is our hope that you will not only find this work inspiring and empowering, enabling your healing practice… but that you will also enjoy every page of the reading, like steps along the way.
