Product description

From the Back Cover

HOLISTIC HEALTH "Hildegard's knowledge can help Western herbal medicine return itself to an equal level of sophistication with the Eastern systems that are becoming popular today. Hildegard's medicine, therefore, has a special import today for this regeneration of our own, older, natural-healing tradition." --David Frawley, O.M.D, co-author, with Dr. Vasant Lad, of Yoga of Herbs Hildegard of Bingen, a major twelfth-century mystic and prophet, began having divinely inspired visions at the age of six. These visions continued throughout her life, and were the source of highly honored information on healing through a multidimensional approach to the body, mind, emotions, and spirit. Widely accepted by physicians and religious healers of her time, Hildegard's work was lost over the centuries, and has only recently been reborn through the work of the authors of this book. Hildegard of Bingen's Medicine is a groundbreaking contribution to medicine and healing. It contains translations of Hildegard text which reflect the high point of medieval, alchemical, and healing science. In addition, these translations are commented upon by authors who have worked clinically with Hildegard's wisdom for thirty years. Many will find this book to contain profound, long lost spiritual teachings. Hildegard's deep understanding of nature--trees, herbs, and animals--inspires a new vision of balance and planetary attunement. DR. GOTTFRIED HERTZKA is a medical doctor in Germany, and author of the bestselling book on Hildegard medicine, So heilt Gott. He has worked clinically with Hildegard's theories for thirty years. DR. WIGHARD STREHLOW was a research chemist in the pharmaceutical industry in West Germany, and now works with Dr. Hertzka in the Hildegard Practice at Konstanz, West Germany.
