This guide seeks to inform the reader of various things that can affect their ability to treat others using herbal medicine. Anything from a slight difference in symptoms to whether a person is allergic to a particular herb (or family of herbs) can alter how a formula is tolerated from one person to the next.
"The methodology described here is an attempt (and a good one) to supply several parameters to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of a patient."
Obviously, it takes training and practice in herbs, as well as a keen eye for both the subtle differences and proper investigation of symptoms, to become a great herbalist. The more you know about how nature's bounty works to keep you well, the better equipped you'll be to administer herbal medicine to others.
