Staff Reviews

In The Earthwise Herbal Repertory, renowned herbalist Matthew Wood has created a powerful tool for herbalists and students of herbalism.  This 'database' of medicinal herbs allows the reader to find appropriate herbs by looking up the organ, system, or function where the problem resides - and then includes specific indications for many of the herbs listed.

The introductory material will especially appeal to those with an interest in homeopathy and how herbalism and homeopathy might complement each other.

— From The Earthwise Herbal Repertory, by Matthew Wood


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.
