The Green Pharmacy
Many diseased and conditions for which we turn to modern medicine can also be treated naturally with healing herbs, medicinal food, other natural remedies--and these treatments can be safer, less expensive and possibly even more effective than traditional methods. Let Dr. James Duke, the world's leading authority on healing herbs, leads you through the vast world of natural remedies--from Anise for Asthma to Violet for Varicose Veins, and everything in between. With just a few trips to the health-food store, the supermarket, or your own backyard--and with the help of Dr. Duke--you'll have everything you need to create your own Natural Medicine Cabinet.
"The Green Pharmacy is full of helpful, practical information about using plants as medicines. I plan to consult it often." --Andrew Weil, M.D., Director of the Program in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, and author of Spontaneous Healing
"Filled with gems of wisdom--a treasure of information from a man who knows as much as anyone in the world about medicinal plants." --Jean Carper, author of Miracle Cures
The only caution I would mention about this book is, that while the author gives various recipes for using herbs and foods for healing, he doesn't offer much in the way of how to prepare your own herbal medicines. In describing how to make a salve, for example, Duke admits that he's never had much luck in making salves, and then gives a really poor recipe for making one, so I can see why he hasn't had much luck! Except for teas (infusions and decoctions) and using herbs as foods, he seems to prefer buying standardized herbal remedies. So while the book excels in explaining how to use herbs for healing, you will need another reference if you want to prepare tinctures, salves, herbal pills, etc.
As a side note, I have had the great privilege of working closely with numerous Native American tribes, and many of the remedies Dr Duke prescribes are also used by some of the Native Americans I know.
