The Lancashire Branch, N.A.M.H.

Founded February, 1920.

This Branch was formed for the purpose of education and mutual intercourse of its members with a view to increasing their usefulness as Herbal Doctors. Clinics are new held fortnightly, and very complex and interesting cases have been brought before them, some of whom have benefited considerably by the advice and treatment given. The Branch consists of Members and Associates; Members must belong to the parent Association, but members of Botanical Societies may become Associates. An opening is thus afforded for those who are interested in botany as an entertaining study to become practical Herbal Healers according to the principles of Physio-Medicalism, which is the name given to the Herbal Practice of Medicine in America, practitioners of which employ non-poisonous therapeutics only in the healing of the sick.

Manipulative Surgery is also an important feature of the Clinics, the President being a specialist in this branch of the healing art. The Clinics, therefore, of the Lancashire Branch are really a complementary course to the Postal Tuition lessons of the parent Association, and all students in Lancashire would do well to identify themselves with this important work of reform in medicinal and surgical treatment, so much needed to-day.

Common Plants and their Uses in Medicine was written by Richard Lawrence Hool, F.N.A.M.H., in 1922.
