The information black hole on mamaki is one of the inspirations behind this website. It’s been incredibly difficult to find ANY details on this plant, much less health-related information. So we were thrilled when we got our hands on “Medicine at Your Feet: Healing Plants of the Hawaiian Kingdom” The book is sort of a mixture between a field guide on plants and a medical reference that documents a huge variety of Hawaiian plants and includes two full pages of data on mamaki.
Author David Bruce Leonard, L.Ac. is founder of the Earth Medicine Institute based on the Big Island of Hawaii. With a Master’s in traditional Chinese Medicine and as a student of Hawaiian medicine since 1992 under several prominent native teachers, David offers insight into mamaki that may never be found through western sources.
