Editorial Reviews

Health Science April 2001
Here is a straightforward practical compendium about Mother Nature's many healing abilities. In collecting data for this volume, Eric Meyer has taken an approach that is not open to experimental scientists - collecting information based on the historical, oral traditions of healing methods as practiced throughout Eurpoe and parts of the United States. In some cases, the remedies seem homespun, even simplistic. You'll find artichoke for skin problems. Cabbage for quicker healing. Cinnamon for fatigue. But this is no accident. In many homes, these were the remedies people had on hand for both serious and minor ills. And when these remedies proved effective, the secrets were readily passed along from generation to generation. Of particular interest in this comprehensive volume is a listing of medicinal plants and a listing of vitamins and minerals: what they are good for, daily requirements, and in what plamntsd and plan-based foods they are found.
