In response to a question/request, I made a short podcast episode about the herbal books I most often use in clinical practice.
(Side note: I really love questions. If you have a question or a topic you'd like me to address, please send it along.)
I know people are probably going to listen or read mainly to see the titles, and I actually think the more important message is in the second part of the episode.
The short version - and it's already a short podcast - is that accumulating more and more books/courses will not actually make you a better practitioner.
Once you reach a certain level of knowledge, you don't need more books. You need more practice.
Sometimes the temptation to keep reading, learning, and gathering certificates points to a deeper feeling of inadequacy, and more information isn't the solution.
That being said, here are the herbal books I use frequently in clinical practice.
Please do not interpret this list as a suggestion that you need or should get all of these
