The Humoral Herbal, is an exploration of the ancient art of restoring health by balancing the humours of the body. Humoral medicine dates from the time of Hipprocates and this book represents its renaissance in the context of Western traditional medicine.

The Humoral Herbal, gives a clear description of the basic concepts of traditional humoral medicine, how to recognise imbalances in the humours and how to correct them with herbs and changes in diet and lifestyle. It explores Medieval astrological and planetary symbolism and provides clear charts showing how the different humours function and influence health. A comprehensive herbal guide details the humoral and planetary characteristics of each herb and how to choose the correct remedy. The author, Stephen Taylor, generously shares his experience of humoral herbal practice and offers guidance on how to apply that healing wisdom for our benefit today.

About the Author(s)

During his 25 years of practice as a herbalist, Stephen Taylor has explored in-depth the traditional foundations of Western medicine, drawing inspiration from the Ancient herbalists Hippocrates and Galen, and the medieval herbalist Nicholas Culpeper. Stephen has trained in Eastern and African traditions of ancient medicine, and having made extensive visits to learn from the traditional healers of Africa, he eventually became initiated as a traditional healer and diviner himself. He continues to practice herbal medicine, teach and research, and grows and produces many of his own medicines.
