Publisher's Summary

Learn how to unleash the healing powers of herbs and plants!

When most of us see or think about herbs, we don’t think of them as potent cures for different ailments - we just think of the delicious soups and stir fries we can make with them.

However, as well as the amazing tastes they give us, herbs contain potent properties that can provide a huge array of health benefits ranging from cardiovascular to digestive - and much more.

I know, you are wondering:

  • What herbs and plants are great for which diseases or conditions?
  • How do you prepare herbs for each different disease or condition?
  • How do you make sure you stay safe as you start using herbs to cure diseases or conditions?
  • How do you go about identifying and collecting the best herbs and plants for a specific condition?

For the answers to these and other related questions, keep reading....

This audiobook covers the ins and outs of how to unleash the potent properties in different herbs to derive the health benefits hidden inside them.

Here is what to expect:

  • Twenty-nine different varieties of herbs and plants and what each one can treat
  • How to identify the best herbs to use
  • How to identify poisonous herbs you need to avoid
  • How to identify herb intoxication
  • Steps to take to preserve harvested herbs
  • And so much more

Even if you are new to the subject of medical herbs, this audiobook will teach you all you need to know about them, so you can eat them, not only for their nutritional value, but also for their medicinal properties.

A really good starter to herbalism!

I'm a person who always been interested in medicinal herbs and learn mostly by doing stuff with my hands or having someone to teach; trust me I do well but I'm also anxious. I was kinda skeptical on how this audiobook would keep me motivated to be focused. I was amazed on Mister Barrow used of words and explanation that was so easy for me to understand. This guida is for beginners and is a GOOD ONE! My mind is getting open to the world of herbalism; it took me less than a week with this audiobook! I need to listen other few chapters to complete the audiobook, and I already start practicing to make my own medicinal apothecary.

Great guide to enter in this world!

I've always had some cooking type herbs growing in with my flowers in my home garden and wanted to expand my use of herbs beyond cooking. Wasn't sure what to do or how to use them. Bought this audiobook and I'm so glad I did! It's very well made and informative. When listening it I felt like I was in Kevin Barrow's garden. He is a perfect teacher! The guide isn't full of just wordy chapters to fill pages of her thoughts that just bore you. He gets right to the point. Every chapter is chock full of very simple instructions. He shares recipes for things like teas, tonics, tinctures and liniments and he has the botanical name with the common name. I really felt like I could be a master at herbal medicine in no time. Very easy to comprehend. I am encouraged to use and grow my herbs. You can understand listening the audiobook he really does care that you have a total comprehension of the herbs and there uses.

Great for newbies

I've found this audiobook helpful in my search for more natural solutions to health issues. I use this guide in conjunction with internet/blog/pinterest searches for remedies and recipes using herbal ingredients and essential oils. Like so many other reviewers, I think this is a great audiobook.

Excellent Starting Point!

I just get my audiobook yesterday (yay for Prime Members!) and have skimmed over the entire thing. It's incredibly well organized. The information in here is a GREAT starting point for any budding herbalist, I think it is not only for beginners. If you want to know about the herbs (i.e., most herbs like aloe will have a LOT more uses than are listed in other audiobook), this audiobook is for you. 5 stars. You can quite easily build on the knowledge she gives you. I'm so very pleased with it and can't wait to really dig into the guide. Onwards!

Im excited to start this new adventure into herbs and naturopathic medicine, as a nurse for over 17 years in an ICU setting i can tell you i appreciate how he describes the chemical component of each herb and why its effective. Very well researched.

Stop researching and buy this!

I did my research on various medicinal herb books and I’m glad I went with this one! Very informative on the plant, how to use, how to grow, how to identify, and where to find. Has it all for a very reasonable price!

Do Not Miss This One!

Before I begin I should make it clear that I am by no means "new" to the use of Medicinal Herbs. Although I will always consider myself a student in this area - as no one can truly learn it all - I have been growing and using herbs for many years now. I bought this audiobook though because I felt it would make a great addition to my ever growing library and thought it may be a good guide to use for teaching - both my children and others in my area. I could not have been more correct! I am an avid note taker when I read or listen and have found that taking notes while listening this audiobook nearly requires copying the whole thing word for word. NOTHING in this book is worth skipping or forgetting. Perfect for the avid herbalist as well as the brand-newbie!

Very Informative!

When I bought this guide, I never expected it to be such a page turner! This audiobook is very well written, and he shares a lot of great information about herbs and how to grow them, what they can be used for medicinally, and recipes! He also walks you through the how to's of making teas, infused oils, and so much more!! I definitely would recommend purchasing this audiobook if you want to learn more about the plants around you!

Beautiful audiobook that is a pleasure to listen

I love this audiobook. I listened it chapter to chapter and enjoyed the entire thing. If you are interested in starting any sort of herb garden or having your own apothecary, or if you're just interested in the topic, buy this audiobook! You will absolutely not be disappointed.

Perfect for a beginner like me

This guide is perfect for beginners, Barrow goes into what you need for medicinal herb creations, and has many recipes included in the audiobook. He explains well the tools of the trade, and covers some basic healing herbs for you to start with. I must admit, I would have liked more info on how best to plant and care for the plants, but he does give some good tips. And I'm a beginner after all! Recommend this book highly for those beginning on a course of using herbal medicines.
