Welcome to The Herbal Encyclopedia!
I hope that this site can answer some of your herbal healing questions, and other questions you may have regarding medicinal herbs and their many uses.
This site is not meant to be a substitute for seeking the advice of a qualified physician or health professional,
and the information given within is not meant to replace prescription medicines without the proper guidance.
This information is given for educational purposes only. I make no claims as to the ability of herbs to cure you of every ailment known to man. That said, I will state
here that I use these herbs, and have had no ill affects from their proper use - note I said proper use - but that is just me speaking for me.
I have been trained in the use of herbs: I am a nationally certified Naturopathic Doctor (ND). You should be trained at some level, too, or be following
the advice of a qualified, certified professional caregiver. PLEASE seek guidance if you do not know how to use these herbs properly!! I will not be held
responsible for the improper ingestion or other improper uses of herbs. This information is posted here for educational purposes, and is not intended to diagnose
Information within this site is Void where prohibited by law (and shame on you backward states that force me to add such a statement!).
If there is no one who can teach you the use of herbs, I suggest you check the "References" page I have (see Index page for link)
and choose a book or two and start studying! Or visit your local health food store, and ask for someone who can guide you to someone in your area who can
teach you or work with you on a professional level. There are a lot of good herbal correspondence courses out there as well. You can find several good ones with
your favorite search engine. Dr. Waltz also gives clinics and lectures that can help you learn about medicinal herbs.
The pages within this site contain copyrighted material. Please do not "borrow" ANY of the
information on any of these pages without my written permission!! To do otherwise is copyright infringement, and legal action may be sought to protect my rights
as an author. Much of this information is included in a copyrighted book of mine, so the copyright is not just limited to this site.
I apologize for being so blunt, but after finding all the various copies on the Net that claimed to be from somewhere other than here, and the bootleg print
versions, and considering that I make my part of my living with herbs and the articles and books I write about them, I have to state this to protect myself. I also
state this to protect all the various professionals that have used me and my herbal materials as a reference in their own printed, copyrighted materials.
This is the ORIGINAL Herbal Encyclopedia, folks! Yes, you have probably seen my work plastered all over the Net, on
many Herbal and other sites, only you didn't know it was mine, because those that "borrow" from here nearly always forget to let you all know where they "found"
this material in the first place. Well, this is where all those little copies came from to start with. This site has been in existence since 1996. I have the training to
back up my herbal information, along with many years of practical and clinical experience.
Please also note that I DO NOT sell medicinal herbs or herbal combinations to the general public. I do not promote or advocate in any way any
particular company's herbal products. I do not recommend dosages on these pages, as dosages and combinations are dependent upon what is being
treated, your body weight, and your age, amongst other important factors such as medical history. One dose does not fit all!!
I do not have pictures here for several reasons. First, I wanted this to be a quick reference, meaning short download times and covering the most common
herbs. Second, if you do not know what you are doing with wild plants, it is best that you buy your herbs commercially from a reputable source, rather
than poison yourself or someone else with a plant that looks similar to a healing herb.
The herbs listed in this Encyclopedia have a myriad of uses the world over. This listing is by no means a complete one, but it can help you with quick references
when needed. Here I will list just a few of the most common herbs and the uses of each. Obviously, most of these herbs have a much longer list of uses,
and there are thousands of healing herbs around the world, but this is meant to be FAST! and I have yet to find a specific source in my own studies that
covered every herb known to man. That would have to be a very large reference book! My book and others can give you more complete information on each herb
listed here. This Encyclopedia does not contain an extensive listing of Chinese or Ayurvedic herbs; while I often work with these in my clinic, there are other web
sites with extensive information regarding these items and I see no reason to duplicate those efforts.
The BOOK is available!
