Herbal ABCs: The Foundation of Herbal Medicine (Book Review + Giveaway)


When I attended The Rocky Mountain School of Botanical Studies in the early aughts, we used Sharol Tilgner’s Herbal Medicine from the Heart of the Earth, 1st edition, as our textbook.  What a treasure!  It was a goldmine of information for us as beginning herb students. It has also served me well throughout the years as an herbal reference book that I have gone back to time and time again. My copy is so dog-eared and well-loved that I’ve even had to tape some of the pages back in!

So, when I sat down to read Sharol’s latest book, Herbal ABCs: The Foundation of Herbal Medicine, I honestly thought it would be geared solely toward beginning herb students. I didn’t think it would contain very much information I didn’t already know. Well, I couldn’t have been more wrong! The information contained within is outstanding for even seasoned herbalists and is absolutely a must-have introductory text for beginning herbal students. Sharol’s book is chock-full of in-depth and well-written herbal and physiology information that can keep advanced students interested but is written in a way that even beginners can understand.  Not an easy feat to pull off, but Sharol does it with aplomb!

Sharol also weaves in information about biotoxin/environmental illness.  This is a new idea to both the herbal world and modern medicine alike and is also what most of my clients suffer from. Many people, including herbalists, have remained sick before their biotoxin illness was addressed. The information Sharol integrates on this topic is vitally important to help sufferers understand their illness, find treatment, and regain their lives.

In short, no matter your level of expertise in herbal medicine, Herbal ABCs: The Foundation of Herbal Medicine is sure to become a well-thumbed, essential volume in your herbal library.
