My whole ambition started from wishes on Dandelions and I have loved them all my life, I thought them to be the most beautiful flower because they have a wish ball. My wish come true as an adult to have my own business, at the time I didn't know I would be an Herbalist, but I am. In honor of my favorite I named my business Dandelion and I bought this book because I was certain that all I knew about Dandelion's and their incrediable ability to heal would be in it. Guess what?...It was and more. Brigette Mars has not put this book back into reprint, so it is worth a lot more money than when it was originally sold and I had to pay a lot for my copy. It is a rare and collectable book not to mention all the information within the pages. I treasure this book on a knowledge and sincere level and you could buy it off of me. A great book, quick read and ready to unshelf for sharing with anyone young and old. They'll give you a corky look at first and then they too will be enlightened and surprised. Great Book!

Excellent book! Informative, easy to read, this one has earned a permanent place on the bookshelf. It's a shame that this one is out of print, as many will miss out on the plethora of valuable information that Ms. Mars provides. I find all of her books to be of this same quality. Any book that she writes will be on my bookshelf. Highly recommended if you can get a copy.

Dandelion, this modest plant, has a lot to give...
Rich in minerals it's benefits reach from being a healthy food to the use as medicine.
This little book covers the 'Virtues of the Dandelion' - 'Collecting, Growing and Havesting' - It's 'Traditional Uses' in western as well as in Chinese medicine and in Ayurvedic - 'Making and using Dandelion Medicines' - as well as 'Cooking with Dandelions'.
I recommend this book to everyone who is allowing dandelions to grow in his garden.

Format: Paperback
Before the overkill we now have of synthetic medicines, herbal / plant concoctions played a profoundly beneficial role in curing symptoms before they could become chronic. There is a plethora of such concoctions today, which many people know little or nothing about, and that includes our GP's . Since they are now unable to cope with the overload of ill health, due to this, our hospitals have become something akin to the days of Bedlam. Therefore it makes sense to know simple ways to keep your own health safe and secure. One of the most straightforward ways to do this is focus on treating your liver with curative medicinal compounds such as DANDELION ROOT. 9organic only)
Dandelion Root does what it says on the tin! It detoxes and purifies the liver, which is one of the most vital organs in the body, due to the fact that it is the bodies own laboratory...........................yes the body does have it's own laboratory. A fact most of us know very little of. The most common cause of liver disease, is damage to the pituitary gland at birth, resulting in a very compromised ENDOCRINE SYSTEM. A slow insidious build up of pathogens, over a great number of years, (viruses, bacteria etc) is allowed to continue unabated, with catastrophic results for those involved. We are being grossly mislead when such a condition ( damage to the pituitary) is labelled as being "incurable" and is a shocking indictment on health professionals, across the board.

The liver is the largest of glands in the body, and glands are what orchestrate how the internal organs (liver; spleen; pancreas; gut ; brain ; heart; ) work to keep us strong and healthy.
Those of us born with a deficiency in the mineral POTASSIUM need to be aware of the terrible consequences on our health, when this condition is so routinely misdiagnosed.
