Medicinal Plants
books by Michael Moore

There are literally thousands of herbal books on the market, yet very few really good ones. By far, the best herbal books we have ever found are those written by Michael Moore. Most authors quote what other people have used the herbs for, but Moore writes directly from personal experience.

Moore is well-versed in both physiology and pharmacognosy, and he is the director of the Southwest School of Botanical Medicine in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Clearly he has used each of the plants he writes about many times-on himself, his students and on others. Moore describes the effects of the plants on the person, and how that varies by the individual's temperament.

The best part is Moore's "diagnosis" of what conditions to use each plant for, usually poking fun at our various overindulgences and how these herbs can help to put our bodies back in balance. Medicinal Plants of the Pacific West is the most recent and best of the three, but all are good books. We only wish Michael Moore would write about east coast plants too!

These books are best used in conjunction with Botany in a Day: The Patterns Method of Plant Identification.
