The Herbal Medic Field Guide

This is a pocket-sized book that is a condensed overview of some of the most critical herbal concepts to bear in mind in a post-disaster or remote environment.

Sam Coffman originally wrote this as a hand-book to accompany one of his short courses on post-disaster herbalism, but the demand for the book by itself grew very quickly and it is now available to anyone interested in a pocket reference for post-disaster herbalism.

The plants covered in this book are primarily found in southwest USA, but many can be found throughout other parts of the US.

The book includes
  • An overview of practical herbal medicine concepts that are important to understand for anyone using herbal medicine
  • 24 very useful medicinal plants plus charcoal and propolis
  • Specific formulas for a wide range of health concerns (using the herbs in the book)
  • Contraindications for all herbs
  • Basic first aid concepts & mnemonics
