Working side-by-side with Alan for over a decade, I can tell you that he is uncompromisingly committed to and consistently successful in finding high quality clinical outcomes for individuals with severe, chronic and degenerative diseases.

"Publishers have certainly noticed the tremendous interest in herbal medicine, each year they add hundreds of new titles to their inventories. Some of these titles are useful, many are mediocre and the majority are useless. Into this crowded arena of herb books comes a brilliant new work by an experienced herbal clinician, Alan Tillotson, AHG. The One Earth Herbal Sourcebook not only lives up to its lofty name, I feel it surpasses it. Alan educates the reader to the basics of good and safe herbal usage and then goes on to discuss in clear easy to understand terms the subtleties of western, Ayurvedic and Chinese botanical medicine. I am surprised and very pleased at the success achieved in this work. I wouldn't have believed it possible, but reading is believing."

"Heads up! Here is a whole new kind of herbal--a real layman's guide written by an experienced herbalist from the trenches. The hundreds of pearls of herbal wisdom make this book an herb course in itself, and one you can really sink your teeth into. The philosophy and holistic concepts of herbal medicine come to life in this honest to goodness, useful guide to herbs. Get beyond those other diluted and plagaristic herbals. Wow! Get this book!"

Robyn Klein, AHG
Editor of Robyn's Recommended Reading, Bozeman, MT


"Alan's book is one of the rare gems of new herbals that speaks to the needs of the educated patient, the neophyte herbalist, as well as the seasoned clinical practitioner and researcher. Indeed, his insights are rich, his perspectives broad, his research comprehensive, and his personal style so accessible that we all might wish he were a practitioner and teacher in our own neighborhoods. This book is destined to become a well-used desk reference for practitioners, and a much borrowed book from many clinic lending-libraries."
