Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

This fascinating book is a valuable guide for farmers and the general public concerned about the overuse of nonnatural medicine, herbicides, and insecticides in farm management and animal husbandry. The author, Juliette de Baïracli Levy, offers detailed directions for treating all farm animals with natural methods, while stating her evidence that "mechanized" farming methods have led to the demise of domesticated animals' overall health. She asserts that poor and inadequate natural habitat, unnatural feeding practices, and a reliance on medicine to fight individual symptoms of disease without addressing the whole animal have weakened farm animals' innate disease-fighting ability. Her argument for a return to reliance on the natural and away from the synthetic and artificial rearing and feeding methods of farm animals becomes more urgent and relevant given the outbreaks of "mad cow disease" and other ailments caused by these practices. This book, used in conjunction with proper consultation with a veterinarian, can help animal owners and farmers move back to natural and healthy farming practices. --Julia King

Review

"Every farmer should haev this book...it could help us to avoid some of the mistakes stemming from unlimited uses of chemical fertilizers, insecticides, antibiotics and the like." -- Farmer's Weekly

More About the Author

Juliette was born on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1912 in Manchester, England. She was educated at Lowther College, one of the best girls schools in Britain, and went on to study veterinary medicine at the Universities of Manchester and Liverpool.

However, Juliette did not approve of the vivisection and animal experimentation that was going on in the universities, so she left university after two years and went to study with the Gypsies and peasants of the world.

In the late 1930's Juliette ran a distemper clinic in London where, at a time when many dogs were dying from this disease, she treated and cured hundreds of dogs with fasting, herbs and a natural diet.

When many Afghan hound puppies were dying of distemper, Juliette raised a litter of puppies on her natural rearing methods and these puppies won Best of Show at Crufts Dog Show.

In the 1930's Juliette developed a line of herbal supplements for animals known as Natural Rearing Products. For the next 50 years these were the only products of their kind on the market. Today these supplements are still distributed world wide.

During World War II, Juliette worked in the Women's Land Army gathering sphagnum moss which was used on soldiers' wounds. After the war she went to Yorkshire where she cured thousands of sheep who had been declared incurable by conventional vets.

In the 1940's, while travelling in America, Spain, France, North Africa and Turkey, Juliette gathered herbal remedies from the nomadic and peasant peoples of these lands. When her Complete Herbal Handbook for Farm and Stable was published in 1951, it was the first veterinary herbal ever to be published as before this time, the art of farriers, gypsies and peasants had been passed on only by the spoken word.

Thus Juliette became THE pioneer of what is known today as holistic animal care. She went on to write The Complete Herbal Book for the Dog. Both these books together with Juliette's Illustrated Herbal Handbook for Everyone and Natural Rearing of Children have become classics and many generations of humans & animals have been raised & healed on these books.

Juliette became famous for saving her hives of bees from shell attack during the six day war. In Israel and later when she moved to Greece, Juliette continued to write, to raise Afghan hounds, to garden and to gather herbal remedies. As well as her herbal books, she has written several travel books, two novels and three books of poems.

Juliette de Bairacli Levy is a world renowned herbalist, author, breeder of Afghan hounds, friend of the Gypsies, traveller in search of herbal wisdom, and the pioneer of holistic veterinary medicine. Juliette has a long record of spectacular cures to her credit and the books she has written have been a vital inspiration for the present day herbal renaissance, (born 11.11.1912 deceased 5.28.2009). Juliette is the author of many books including Traveler's Joy, Common Herbs for Natural Health, Natures Children, Spanish Mountain Life, Summer in Galelie, A Gypsy In New York, all in print by Ash Tree Publishing, and more titles now out of print.

Juliette Levy is a legend in the world of natural healing. Her courage in speaking out against the unnatural methods of raising dogs, cats and farm animals often brought her much criticism, but the practices set forth in her book have stood the tests of time and have saved many an animal that might otherwise have been lost. She offers not only an extensive list of plants and their uses, but also speific protocols for a variety of illnesses, all very clearly explained and laid out. She outlines specific dietary regimines as well, for the purpose of maintaining maximum health and supporting an ill animal through the healing process. I have personally used her methods with my own animals with great success. No serious herbalist or student of natural healing should be without it.

I am a goat farmer for many years now. I have bought many books on goats, veterinary manuals, and so on, but this book is the first one I turn to for animal ailments. Natural rearing methods produce better and healthier kids than any other method. I bought one doe kid who was so ill with a disease that affected her brain that I was going to put her out of her misery--- it was too late for a vet to do any good. With the herbal treatments in this book, the goat recovered and lived over a year in good health.

We raise our animals naturlaly/organically. We had been searching for a book that would help us with our animals in such a way medically, if needed. A friend of ours, who has been doing what we're doing for decades, highly recommended this book, telling us it would become our farm "bible". After reading just a few pages of this, we quickly realized what she meant, and we have been reading from it and using it ever since. It is very clearly written, easy to understand, and a joy to use. The author gives a wonderful history of herbal medicines in a farm/livestock setting. She clearly explains how to prepare the herbs (in tinctures, poultices, etc.) for the animals. She breaks it down for the different animals as well. This book is a joy to own-- we're very pleased with our purchase.

I'm a equine professional and read through the horse section of the book half the stuff she has you do for the horse will kill the horse more then help. A fly remedy of putting used motor oil on your horse. You are polluting your horse its food and environment. Very very bad idea. I don't know much about other animals but not for horses. A lot of other things like cherry tree tea for coughs, I do believe that cherry trees are poisoness to horses. Laminitis she has you putting an hot poultice on the hooves. You will make it worse by adding more heat to the already hot feet. You need to cool those feet off as fast as possible to stop the laminitis. It is the worse thing I've ever read when it comes to horses. Might as well tell me to shoot the horse it will suffer less.

This is a great resource for preventative care. This is not a quick fix of an animal down and dying - it's more day to day prevention in focus as often it should be. It greatly lessens the chemical medications needed for care of animals. The point of dogs being adapted to fasting/feasting in the natural state and, in the wild, consume small animals and birds bones and all, is a point for additionally feeding raw. Some of the terminology is UK based ('lurchers' in dogs for example) but a good and well-used book to have on hand and *use*! If you save one vet call it's worth the cost of this book; and many have saved animals from it. It works!

If you can only have one book on animal health, this is it. Keep one in the stable and one on the night stand. Sage wisdom as found in this inclusive book is sadly getting harder to find as the years pass.
End of story.
