The Nurse-Herbalist

Herbalism, the study and application of medicinal plants, is nursing practice. Herbal remedies are essential elements of nursing and midwifery care. Nurse-herbalists partner with plants to provide human comfort with plants as a catalyst for change. Step by step, element by element-fire, air, water, earth, and ether- this comprehensive textbook guides you in the creation and implementation of your own holistic nurse-herbalist practice plan.
Excellent resource for non-nurses too! This book has been adopted by caregivers worldwide.
