Ratings and Reviews
Dr. Shawna R. Coston
Very good app for learning alternatives herbal medicine. The body is a natural substance with its own healing protocol. The body never lies and the testing numbers never lie.
Very helpful app
Search function lacking
Search function only works for the list of nutrients. There is no way to search within the text. Therefore there is no way to search for a botanical by its Latin binomial since the list contains common names. A basic electronic version of the book would be better than this considering that I would be able to search the entire text.
