David Hoffmann B.Sc.(Hons) N.M.I.M.H.

 

This page is an index of the articles on the www.healthy.net site.  I've created it for a few reasons.  First, David Hoffman is a great herbalist, and his writings are well worth reading when researching a particular herb or topic.  Second, because all these articles are housed on healthy.net, and I find that site so dreadfully tedious that I don't like going there.  While one can find a "all articles written by David Hoffmann" page, it's listed in alphabetical order, and includes all the individual herb write-ups... it's frightfully impractical.

 

So, for my benefit as well as yours, here's a much better index of Hoffmann's available writings.  Hope you enjoy...

 

*please note there are probably more than a few articles that could best be displayed under more than one heading... all in good time (if I can find it...)
