Native peoples did not need to run to the health food store, fill a prescription at a pharmacy, or order herbs on line. They found their medicines all around them, freely offered in nature. The Little Handbook of Native American Herbs is designed to help you become familiar with sixteen herbs that, in most cases, are outside your back door and free for the harvesting.
Learn how easy it is to make teas, decoctions, tinctures, infused oils, poultices, compresses and ointments that will bring relief for forty-nine common complaints and ailments: from acne to anxiety, arthritis to colds, coughs and colic, detoxification, earaches and eczema, influenza, gout, headaches, hemorrhoids, irritable bowel, insomnia, menopause symptoms, neuralgia, PMS, rheumatism, sciatica, tonsillitis, sore throats, cystitis and more.
Sample formulas are given to get you started on setting up your own herbal pharmacy. And if you don’t want to grow or harvest your own supply, sources for quality herbs are listed in the back.
Whether you are curious about what Native Peoples used for their own comfort and relief; or perhaps would like to save money and become more health care independent by using natural products that heal without the side-effects of western medicines, The Little Handbook of Native American Herbs will get you started.
