"In fine inspired prose Matthew Wood teaches us the personalities of seven common herbs and the corresponding human personalities for which they provide benefit. "Seven Hearbs: Plants as Teachers" synthesizes insights from the teachings of Paracelsus, the science of homeopathic medicine, and the stories of the "Bible" to help us understand how the nature that surrounds us teaches and heals us. After reading this book, you will find it more difficult than ever to seperate the science, art, and spirit of healing."
- Dana Ullman, M.P.H.
"Matthew Wood in his book has succeeded in integrating information in a manner which is rarely seen in contemporary writing. Starting with the works of Bohm, Paracelsus, Hahnemann, Burnett, and Bach, he has studied long and hard and has created a work that is far greater than the sum of its parts. This book belongs in the library of healers of all persuasions."
