*Nautilus Book Award Gold Medal Winner: Health, Healing & Wellness

In this indispensable new resource both for the home apothecary and clinical practitioners, a celebrated herbalist brings alive the elemental relationships among traditional healing practices, ecological stewardship, and essential plant medicines.

By honoring ancient wisdom and presenting it in an innovative way, Energetic Herbalism is a profound and practical guide to family and community care for those seeking to move beyond symptom relief and into a truly holistic framework of health. Throughout, author Kat Maier invites readers to explore their personal relationships with plants and their environs as they discover diverse models of healing.

Inside Energetic Herbalism, you’ll find:

  • The elements and patterns of Ayurvedic doshas for greater self-awareness as well as positive lifestyle choices
  • A deep appreciation of the wisdom of indigenous peoples, which is the foundation of sacred plant traditions
  • The relationship of well-being to the seasons through the brilliant lens of Chinese Five Element Theory, and how our emotional health is beautifully expressed through the Elements
  • The roots and evolution of Vitalism, the traditional Western system of energetic medicine
  • How to assess imbalances in the body using the elegant and intuitive vocabulary of the six tissue states, an emerging tool in Western herbalism
  • The senses as the main tools for navigating through energetic herbalism

Through the rich herbal tradition of storytelling, Maier seamlessly blends theory and practice with her experience-tested herbal remedies and healing protocols. Maier stresses the critical message of how to address the challenge of threatened medicinal plant populations, offering practical and inspiriting methods for ensuring their survival. Many herbals boast a materia medica of more than 100 herbs, but in keeping with an emphasis on sustainable practice, Maier instead focuses in depth on 25 essential medicinal herbs that can be grown in most temperate climates and soils, including

  • Dandelion
  • Ashwagandha (Indian Ginseng)
  • Goldenseal
  • Burdock
  • Calendula
  • Echinacea
  • Goldenrod

 

Whether you are a seasoned clinical herbalist, an herbalist-in-training, or simply someone seeking to provide the best natural health care for your family, this book is a source of inspiration, insight, and answers you will return to again and again.
