about

Internationally known herbalist Matthew Wood takes the guesswork out of the application of medicinal plants and provides an invaluable cross-reference of constitutional types, energetic categories, and specific symptoms that helps the herbalist narrow down the number of possible remedies for a specific condition. Unlike many reference books in which medicinal plants are defined simply by condition or disease name, this book contains tools to differentiate between remedies and analyze each case in a holistic fashion. While this system of cross-referencing is well known to homeopaths, it is less frequently used by herbalists; The Earthwise Herbal Repertory seeks to bridge the gap between different systems, incorporating knowledge from ancient Greek and traditional Native American medicine, nineteenth-century botanical medicine, homeopathy, and modern biomedical research. This definitive repertory proves useful for homeopaths and herbalists, professionals and home practitioners alike.

Editorial Reviews

"The Earthwise Herbal Repertory is an incredibly impressive achievement. While homeopathic repertories are legion, in modern herbal literature we have a very limited collection of works; this is an important and much-needed addition to the published sources of herbal specifics. It will help Western herbalists better understand their materia medica and achieve superior results with their clients. It also helps lay a foundation for the further development of herbal medicine—one rooted in the past, but continuing to grow and look to the future."—David Winston, registered herbalist (AHG), president of Herbalists & Alchemists   “Matthew Wood's style of herbalism is deeply important to the modern world. He reminds us of the deeper intricate and energetic workings of plants. If I want to truly get to the heart of a plant, I read up on what he has to say.”—Jonathan Keyes, acupuncturist, author of Guide to Natural Health   "Matthew Wood's writing leaves me simultaneously pondering, blown away, inspired, and a bit giddy. Few people have the ability to pull in and weave together as many different strands of herbalism into such a beautiful tapestry. I'm deeply grateful to live in a world with his perspective."—Jim McDonald, herbalist at herbcraft.org
