About the Book
In Joseph Smith and Herbal Medicine, the companion book to Joseph Smith and Natural Foods, Dr. John Heinerman delves into the merits of using herbs and natural medicines as he explores the benefits of following the Mormon health code, the Word of Wisdom.
From the Publisher
Renowned scholar John Heinerman has long admired the Prophet Joseph Smith's inherent understanding of the link between food and health. In this book, the companion to Joseph Smith and Natural Foods, Dr. Heinerman unearths the benefits of using herbs and adhering to the Mormon health code known as the Word of Wisdom. Though scholars of the 1830s scoffed at the Word of Wisdom, modern medical research continues to reveal its merits in achieving and maintaining physical and emotional health. Dr. Heinerman explores the advantages of the Word of Wisdom and the botanical medicines its early practitioners preferred and provides valuable insight into how these things can impact daily life.
