Question by Beo: Anyone know a good book an herbalism?
I’m trying to learn a bit more about herbology/herbalism but the vast majority of what I find on the internet is greatly biased by pharmaceutical companies. I know St. John’s Wort is a good treatment for depression and that feverfew and I think skullcap are good for migraines, but I’d like to know more than just those two things.
A book would be better than a website but any info is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Herbalism is mostly bogus…think about it, if it wasn’t, the pharmaceutical companies you think so little of would all have gone out of business. The only reason they can “get away with” the prices they charge is that their products are tested and actually work. Most “herbal remedies” work on the principle that most things go away on their own in a few days, and if the user believes “nettle tea” or “essence of holly bush” will help and takes it, that’s where they put the credit when their body fixes itself.
Don’t fool yourself…
