Women Healers

Portraits of Herbalists, Physicians, and Midwives

Drawing on primary sources for her revisionist history, the author highlights important contributions of women healers from ancient times to the present.

A professional herbalist and healer who carries on the tradition of women's medicine, Elisabeth Brooke devotes herself to the study, practice, and preservation of women's ancient mysteries. She is also the author of A Women's Book Of Shadows and A Women's Book Of Herbs.

"Brooke's women healers are gentle and compassionate people, less concerned with the brilliance of developing technology than with the care of the patient."
