Fifty plants that can help treat common ailments.
Among the plants growing abundantly on the roadsides we pass every day, many have medicinal uses that were once highly valued—but have been forgotten by much of the modern world with the rise of commercial medicine.
Backyard Medicine for All focuses largely on medicinal plants that grow by roads or paths in the countryside or in the city. These nearby but often overlooked ecosystems are significant wild plant communities, and this book is packed with practical information on how to use fifty forgotten plants to treat all sorts of common ailments.
Each chapter has an introductory section that puts the plant into historical and botanical context, and explains its forgotten or traditional medicinal uses as well as current medicinal applications. With clear, easy instructions and photographs, you can make your own herbal medicines to cure complaints from hay fever to headaches to insomnia
