Farmacist Desk Reference (FDR) Hardcopy Two-Volume Set (Vol 1 & 2) by Don Tolman


SOLD OUT However, we have a few final FDR's with minor damage to the outer box and corners of some books which occurred during transit. If you are interested in purchasing, please reach out: Alternatively, please check out the FDR USB version here.


The FDR is the definitive encyclopaedia of wholefood medicine - a detailed compendium, linking humanity's relationship to life and vitality using plant wholefoods as preventative and re-missive medicine.


Volume 1 - contains what Don Tolman refers to as the 'treasures and nuggets'. Wisdom and information that ancient long-lived cultures wanted you to know about health and longevity and why disease is not a mystery that should be fought.  It also exposes many of the common pitfalls of the modern day health care industry;

Volume 2 - is your A-Z guide of plant wholefoods and the specific signature (sign-of-nature) that each food targets.  It also contains a list of the most common ailments and diseases, including suggested protocols for healing with whole foods and nature's principles of health. 

The FDR contains handed down wisdom from the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Hebrews, Chinese, Native Americans, Incas and others, who experienced vitality and longevity by embracing principles of nature and health and the power of plant whole food.

Product Info

The FDR was crying from the dust of the earth to be recaptured, recorded and shared once again.

With the burning and destruction of the Library of Alexandria, as well as other timeless repositories of recorded human observation being laid waste, the FDR is a profound record of wisdom rediscovery handed down through time mouth to ear, grandmother to daughter to grand daughter.

The FDR can assist you through the recovery from many common disorders. Learn more about Farmacist Desk Reference (FDR) Vols I & II

A wonderful recommendation

Whilst l am slowly working my way through volume 1 and specifically picking out sections of volume 2. I am absolutely enthralled with the detail and the depth of information. I have told my son who is 24 years old that these amazing volumes will be handed down to him. I look forward to completing my reading and continue to reference this wonderful piece of work. Thank you - Chris.

Absolutely loving these amazing books! I think everyone should own them and I'm now working out what content to include in my children's homeschooling for our health and nutrition ongoing units of study.
