The techniques to really use herbs in a radical and powerful fashion don't seem easy to come by. The books I've seen don't seem to be published with the power of wisdom and knowledge that I would expect, yet I can't be sure because my knowledge comes from Theology and not from Practice. Either the wisdom has faded with the rise of Western medicine (hope not), or it's simply latent and invisible to me. Perhaps someone can point out good references that are grounded both in experience and spiritual theory (like, for example: is [flower petal] color a reliable indicator of a specific healing element?).

The subject is interesting but content does not fit Appropedia

The subject of herbalism is a good fit for Appropedia, given the great amount of technical and scientific to back up its claims. Facts portrayed on the article must, however, be factually supported by any type of supported research. Perhaps a good way to do so will be by reviewing scientific knowledge on the subject or other types of documentation to reference, including articles already on Appropedia such as Herbal_medicine. --Emilio (talk) 18:56, 17 December 2019 (UTC)

Learn how wikis work. You don't just go around proposing deleting content that is in the spirit of the wiki without any discussion. You are being too MASCULINE. The mission of appropedia includes much more than technologically-based solutions, "it is a green living wiki" (from your Help:About page), as such it should include answers from the divine FEMININE. If you want citations for everything, then you don't need Appropedia: you could use wikipedia. There are philosophical notions of "facts" that go beyond the science bias of "measureability". Do you not understand this? Pangaia (talk) 19:37, 17 December 2019 (UTC)
Please refer to Appropedia:Rigor to see some of our guidelines on content. As a green living wiki, we strive to serve factual and scientific knowledge. I am simply following your request on your User:Pangaia page of letting you know if the content does not follow community guidelines. Let us know if there is anything we can do to support your research. --Emilio (talk) 16:11, 18 December 2019 (UTC)
Ah, I see there that that is a proposed policy, correct? I have written my objection and concern on the Talk page there. I do hope you will consider that your view of science has nearly destroyed planet Earth or will, including things like global thermonuclear war, excessive oil consumption and extraction from industrialism leading to depletion (and who knows what: Biblical Armageddon probably), new diseases that no one knows the cause or the cure for, etc. Some of what I just said, btw, is documented scientifically, for your perusal.Pangaia (talk) 02:32, 20 December 2019 (UTC)
If you would like this page to exist, please write it in a way that is factual and value added. Please keep in mind that there is plenty of room on Appropedia to describe useful aspects of herbalism, such as solar drying of herbs, identifying herbs, growing herbs, etc... without making wildly inaccurate and dangerous claims without validation. User:Pangaia I appreciate your enthusiasm and efforts, and I also hope you can appreciate the years of effort we have been putting in on this. Thank you, --Lonny (talk) 00:51, 2 January 2020 (UTC)
