About the Book

The Woman's Herbal Apothecary is every woman's lifelong guide to herbal remedies for common health concerns.

Book Synopsis

The Woman's Herbal Apothecary is every woman's lifelong guide to herbal remedies for common health concerns. Novice herbalists and advanced practitioner's alike will learn how to naturally treat the complete spectrum of women's concerns, including preventative self-care, life transitions, and common feminine ailments.

Learn how to prevent, soothe, and heal without resorting to medical remedies, which are often harsh, costly, and include unpleasant side effects. The Woman's Herbal Apothecary contains 200 natural remedies, covering the topics of menses, pregnancy, menopause, aging, fibroids, bladder infections, and low libido, among others.

The book is conveniently divided into the major cycles of a woman's life: pre-childbirth, reproductive years, menopause, and beyond. Each section discusses specific physical complaints and how to treat them. You will learn which herbs are the most helpful for each phase of life and which are contraindicated or to be avoided. Master herbalist and naturopathic doctor JJ Pursell provides her own herbal solutions and DIY herbal remedies. The concluding section is divided by specific common health issues in women, such as cardiac disease, thyroid disease, and adrenal dysfunction.

With The Woman's Herbal Apothecary in hand, you are on your way to healing, hormone balance, beauty, longevity, and calm--the natural way.

About the Author

Dr. JJ Pursell is a board certified naturopathic physician and licensed acupuncturist. She has worked with medicinal herbs for more than 20 years. Having spent many hours on her father's flower farm, her love of plants began at an early age. JJ began working at herb farms and herb shops, which inspired her to enroll in graduate studies in health and medicine. JJ opened The Herb Shoppe, now known as Fettle Botanic Supply & Counsel, while finishing her degree in Portland, Oregon. Fettle was voted "the best apothecary in Portland" and was written up in Portland Monthly magazine and The L Magazine in New York City. Dr. JJ and her shop have been featured in several blogs and Tumblr sites, including Gardenista, White & Warren Inspired, Kale and Coriander, Portland Healing Project, PoppySwap, and Girl Gift Gather. Dr. JJ appeared on Green Living, a BCAT television show in Brooklyn; the Bread and Roses radio show on Portland's KBOO; and Wise Woman Radio with Susun Weed. JJ has her own YouTube channel for people who want to learn more about making herbal medicine. She speaks and offers workshops all over the country, including the NY Horticulture Society and the NW Flower and Garden Show. She has taught and trained with herbalists all over the world, but prefers the practice of close-to-home grown western herbs.
