library, I constantly refer to this outstanding text of Dr.
Christopher’s for usage, dosage, and positive identification of plants.

detailed information about a plant in an emergency situation. After
referring to several other books, The School of Natural Healing is where
I finally found the information I needed.” David W. Christopher M.H.

About the Author --
Dr. Christopher became a
Master Herbalist in 1946 after completing course work under Dr. H.
Knowles at Dominion Herbal College in Vancouver, British Columbia. In
1948 he received his Naturopathic Doctor Degree from the Institute of
Drugless Therapy in Tama, Iowa. He continued his studies at the Los
Angeles Herbal Institute under the renowned Dr. Edward Shook, receiving
his Herbal Pharmacist degree. He practiced as a professional herbalist
in the states of Washington, Wyoming, and Utah. He developed a training
program for herbalists and organized The School of Natural Healing in
1953. When political legalities kept him from healing patients in his
clinic, he traveled around the country lecturing to thousands. He also
wrote and published several books and newsletters. Dr. Christopher’s
message is “God intended everyone to have the knowledge to properly care
for their own body.”
