In recent years there has been a dramatic emergence of many different natural approaches to healing. Along with this has come a heightened fascination with herbal remedies, especially as they appear in fields such as acupuncture, yoga and aromatherapy.
Our guest today is Holly Bellebuono, director of the award-winning Vineyard Herbs Teas & Apothecary on Martha’s Vineyard and The Bellebuono School of Herbal Medicine, which offers training and certification in Community Herbalism. She will take us on a tour through some of her discoveries during the seven years she spent traveling and interviewing women from all over the globe, their plights, their fears and their achievements.
Holly has produced an absolutely beautiful book entitled Women Healers Of The World – The Traditions, History, and Geography of Herbal Medicine, a glorious full-color world tour that offers us an intimate look into the stories, challenges and triumphs of an impressive collection of truly remarkable women – herbalists and healers – past and present.The women she presents range from simple healers of the mountains of Peru to a Jordanian Princess – physicians such as Dr. Low Dog, a Native American and even Susan Weed who has been a favorite here on Conversations With Extraordinary People.

Books by Today’s Guest:
The recent trend toward holistic living has heightened our national fascination with herbal remedies and less conventional therapies such as acupuncture, yoga, aromatherapy, and ethnobotany. Now, this intimate and inspiring book opens up the world of herbal medicine to those interested in learning about the history of these techniques and approaches.
From tinctures to ease tummy aches to elixirs to enhance energy, making your own remedies from easy-to-find herbs can be a satisfying and pleasurable way to connect with nature and your family’s health. While entering the “herb world” can be intimidating—many of today’s herb books are filled with cultivation tables, harvest techniques, dye charts, and aromatherapy guidelines—The Essential Herbal for Natural Health provides a welcome entry point for those wishing to experience the beauty and simplicity of natural herbal remedies safely.
