About the book

Hildegard of Bingen lived a thousand years ago but was only recently named a Catholic saint and doctor of the church. She is probably one of the first writers to speak about living a balanced holistic lifestyle as she addressed everything from diet and exercise to sexual behavior and health.

As a Benedictine nun, she was a thorn in the side of church leaders since she “heard voices” and had blinding visions that directed her in ways that challenged a male clergy. She founded two Benedictine abbeys along the Rhine River in Germany where she spent her life in prayer, writing, music, art, and healing and counseling all those who came to the abbey’s doorstep.

In this eBook, Smith not only describes Hildegard as a healer but also as seer and prophet, and as a visionary. Her philosophy and psychotherapy centered around the body-soul relationship where she identified 35 vices and 35 virtues to offset the vices. These are matched with physical disorders that we might see today.

Living a healed and whole life meant finding the balance between physical health and spiritual health. As an herbalist and early aromatherapist, she taught her nuns how to concoct all kinds of remedies using the plants that grew in the abbey gardens. Her medicine is actually taught and practiced across Europe today.
