Classic Herbal Texts

Contemporary medical herbalism has been greatly enhanced by the reprinting of classical herbal texts from the ninteenth and early twentieth centuries, when several schools of medicine used herbs extensively and documented their uses in textbooks. Many of the audio courses from the NAIMH include a library of selected texts from this collection with a resources disk. You can download several of the best or them here:
