Hildegard’s Healing Plants is a completely new translation of the “Plant” section of Physica, Hildegard’s classic twelfth-century work on health and healing. Hildegard writes on 230 plants and grains - most of which are still grown in home gardens and sold at local health food stores. Hildegard’s understanding of the balancing of hot and cold “humors” reflects a strong affinity with Asian medical approaches, now in the mainstream. Anyone interested in natural healing will be intrigued by the deep practical sense behind her theories, grounded in the natural world, many of which prove effective today. As Hildegard says, “At the time of man’s creation from the earth ... the earth sprouted greenness in accordance with the race, nature, cusoms, and ways of humans.
