It's unfortunate that so many herbal resources in the modern world approach materia medica with an allopathic mindset. They see herbs only for their chemistry, what they are good for, and how they can treat symptoms - being essentially just alternatives for drugs.
Most herb books don't give you the critical information you need to know to be an effective, vitalist, clinical herbalist.
Materia Medica Monthly is all about giving you the strategies, skills, principles and practices for how to master your materia medica holistically.
What does that mean? It means that you don't use herbs to treat symptoms or diseases, but rather the whole person- which includes their psychology, emotional patterns, spirit, and the underlying energetics behind their symptoms.
This isn't about knowing what an herb is "good for." It isn't even just about knowing the medicinal actions, chemistry or even energetics of a plant. It's about getting to know the essential pattern within each plant - the bigger picture that encompasses all of those aspects intelligently.
Materia Medica Monthly is your path to mastering the art of herbalism through understanding your plants in-depth so that you get real results in your herbal practice. With this depth of knowledge about the plants you work with, you'll effectively heal those you serve.
