The Definitive Practitioner’s Guide

The Earthwise Herbal Repertory is the definitive guide for learning more about how to use plants as medicinal medicine. Matthew Wood’s unique approach combines schools of thought from the ancient Greeks to Native American medicine to the latest in biomedical research. This guide will help you become more familiar with not only medicinal plants, but the natural physiological systems of the body and how to treat them holistically.

While some herbals are organized botanically, The Earthwise Herbal Repertory is organized by specific conditions of the body and the patient’s unique symptoms. This approach allows the practitioner to narrow down treatment options and to differentiate between remedies for a wide variety of ailments. This system of cross-referencing, well known to homeopaths, is an indispensable tool for professional and home practitioners alike.
