Praise for Healing with the Herbs of Life

“Lesley Tierra’s newest book, Healing with the Herbs of Life, is a delightful blend of Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, nutritional therapies, and materia medica. It is a comprehensive and easy-to-read reference written from the perspective of an experienced health care practitioner. A very nice addition to anyone’s herbal bookshelf.”

Roy Upton, Herbalist, executive director of the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia

“Lesley Tierra’s Healing with the Herbs of Life is the closest thing I’ve seen to a classic herbal. Her very special insight is combined with decades of experience in clinical practice. This wonderfully readable book will help you learn to utilize the gentle yet powerful healing properties of herbs safely and effectively. This is a practical yet inspiring compendium that takes healing with natural remedies to a new level.”

Christopher Hobbs, author of Herbal Remedies for Dummies

“I love Lesley Tierra. You see, most herbal books fall into one of two categories: either simplistic superficial pablum or the cobra pit of mind-numbing medical jargon. But not this book. First: basic fundamentals; second: effective herbs; and third: disease-specific treatments for self-healing. And all are written with her razor-sharp, totally feminine mind. Get this book – it blossoms.”

Alan Keith Tillotson, author of The One Earth Herbal Sourcebook

“Lesley Tierra has graciously and generously distilled her decades of knowledge and experience into a new book that is both accessible and comprehensive. An invaluable reference for the clinical practitioner’s office, it is also a reliable resource for anyone interested in improving their own health and quality of life.”

Aviva Romm, author of Naturally Healthy Babies and Children
