About the author

During his twenty-five years of practice as an herbalist, Stephen Taylor has explored the traditional foundations of Western medicine, drawing inspiration from the ancient herbalists Hippocrates and Galen, and the medieval herbalist Nicholas Culpeper. While exploring the surviving folk traditions of Europe, he has also trained in Eastern and African traditions of ancient medicine. Having made extensive visits to learn from the traditional healers of Africa, he eventually became initiated as a traditional healer and diviner himself. He continues to practice herbal medicine, teach, and research, and he grows and produces many of his own medicines.
