Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Dr. Tieraona Low Dog is the most gifted teacher of botanical medicine I know. She has a vast fund of knowledge and clinical experience, is witty and highly energetic.” Dr. Andrew Weil, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“This title will be well received by self-help readers, who can either read it from cover to cover or dip into it for insight and practical information. Low Dog is an expert in many of these areas, not least those topics that resonate with her life philosophy that the everyday stuff of people’s lives influences their ability to be healthy and whole.”  Library Journal
“Her holistic approach will appeal to anyone open to lower-tech ways to be healthy.” Booklist
