Reviews and comments on Asteraceae: remedies of the sunflower family. 


Review from Helios pharmacy: “This is a beautifully presented and meticulously researched book, which brings together concise information about the Asteraceae family (Arnica, Bellis perennis, Calendula and more), and its sub-family Anthemideae (the ‘bitter pill’ Artemisias)….” full review at

Excerpt from a review from by Rochelle Marsden: “This initially looks like a small book but when you lift it up and look through it you realise how heavy it is – not just in weight but also in content…. This book is a delight. It is a feast for the eyes with the many amazing photos and illustrations throughout the pages. The pages are of a substantial weight and the print clear. It is a very readable book, especially for those who are interested in the herbal side as well as the homeopathic side of remedies. This is a book written to enable homeopaths to gain a detailed knowledge of the Asteraceae family and I do hope that Jo Evans will have the time to bring out a similar book for another plant family as I was so impressed with this one.” read the full review here

A very nice book on the Asteraceae remedies. This materia medica combines information from all directions in homeopathy, allowing a full presentation. The layout and the beautiful photos provide a good connection to the plants.” Jan Scholten, January 2020

Review from Homoeopathie in Oesterreich 2020:1 (full review available in German only). English exerpt:

This intimate book, which combines the old with the new, provides images of the main players on every double page of its first part. Asteraceae in their beauty, simplicity and power. In the afterword, Jo Evans sums up how she thinks about plants and people, homeopathy and Asteraceae: “The ability to resonate with other forms of life encourages wholeness. It’s also what homeopathy offers. The profound healing that can come with the resonant recognition of similarity and unity with “the other” energy. In a world of composites, although we may resonate with some more than others, we are all one.” Naturally, it is a matter of knowing Asteraceae even better from now on and finding these remedies for patients. But instead of being understood simply by the word, the plant beings here want to be felt, truly felt. A wonderful book.” Franz Swoboda, January 2020
