This DVD set is not cheap and there was no really useful information.
Amazon Customer
Also Sergei Boutenko's book is much better as well if you are interested in getting some real heavy duty information.
PlanetHopper
Every one of the 32 plants in the book is covered in the DVD, so it is like taking a wild foods walk with Sam.

I have never written a review before now. I have gotten products that I was unhappy with before, sure. But I just feel I need to respond to such blatent false advertisment. The ads and description of the DVD's imply that they are going to teach you about wild edibles found every where. It does not. They do talk about a few "weeds", such as dandy lion, plantain, prickly pear cactus and a few others. Hardly anything new that a vast amount of people haven't heard about before. In fact they mention those over and over again.

I was expecting a field trip with lots of pictures of plants, their uses and preperations. One segment shows Markus Rothkrannz walk out his door to pick his breakfast. No explination or pictures of what he is picking. He blends them all into a smoothie for breakfast and bottles the rest to take with him for lunch and dinner. Eghhhh!

Another segment show some Hippie Dippie, New Age couple walking through a garden. This looks like an old 70's movie, ever see Billie Jack? They make claims as to the medicinal properties of a few plants. Claims such as wards off tumors, cancer, AIDs and HIV! I wonder what type of credentials they have to make such claims.

There is more mention of traditional vegetables than there are of "weeds". Such as figs, hickory nuts, almonds, pecans, lettuce, tomatoes, squash, collard greens, grapes, mint, cherries, berries, perssimons etc. There is a section on Love and relationships, cactus you can eat in Arizona, and to be honest I couldn't watch it all the way through without throwing up a little in my mouth.

There is a whole section on where you can buy plants. What happen to the title "Free Food and Medicine"? There is mention of using straw, wood chips, grass clippings etc.

Richard's review is right-on. Totally agree on the DVD set; truly worthless if you want to learn more about wild foods. It is an expensive rip-off, given that "free food" is part of the title and the DVD does not even come close to the implied promise. There's so little in it of any substance and the few edible wild plants mentioned are given such cursory treatment that I'm still angry about being duped. The camera work and sound are decent, and there are interesting sections on edible landscaping, but other than that, it is a mistake to buy it. A cheaper and truly good set that covers 32 plants was produced by Brian Pierce, whose "Forager's Harvest" DVD stars Sam Thayer, the author of "Forager's Harvest: A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Edible Wild Plants." Every one of the 32 plants in the book is covered in the DVD, so it is like taking a wild foods walk with Sam. Every one of the 32 plants Sam chose he has eaten at least 50 times, so he knows what he is talking about. Here's a trailer that will give you a good idea of Brian's DVD:[...]. You can buy his DVD here on Amazon. Here's the link to it: The Forager's Harvest DVD: A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Edible Wild Plants I recommend buying Sam's book with it to get a chapter of information on each plant; the two make a great gift. The Forager's Harvest: A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Edible Wild Plants And for 42 more plants, in one of the best edible wild plant books ever written, it is hard to beat Sam's second book, Nature's Garden: Nature's Garden: A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Edible Wild Plants

These products didn't work and probably why they don't offer guarantees. They know they cant stand behind their product.

I have done parasite cleanses periodically for 27 years using different products over the years and Always seeing results. I saw no results and for such a claim to kill "ALL" parasites there would have been signs.

I also found it interesting when I corresponded with the Markus via email after purchasing his product, he said parasites thrive in an alkaline environment vs an acidic environment. This was a major red flag. Parasite thrive and multiply in an acidic environment, so do diseases such as cancer in which parasites are a main ingredient behind cancer. So, maybe all his product did was feed the living and multiplied them.....great, back to the drawing board.

I wrote him today and he will not stand behind his product. That was a pure waist of $100.00. I strongly recommend moving on from making the same mistake.

Good Luck staying away from the money makers who sell meaningless value.
Linda

What a disappointing book. I thought it would be chalkful of information for the average person to get some things in the wild. Instead only a few wilds are mentioned over and over again. Also there's no mention of where they are located so a lot of good that did me. I get the impression that this book was thrown together in a hectic manner to simply get it out the door. I found Ty Bollinger's book to be vastly superior. But then maybe that's because he does REAL research and doesn't just throw sloppy material out there. And I have yet to see any of Markus' claims substantiated. Another book I still reference a lot and love is Back To Eden. Still use it after all these years. Also Sergei Boutenko's book is much better as well if you are interested in getting some real heavy duty information. Markus didn't spend nearly enough time on this set and it shows. Probably just wanted to make a quick buck from unsuspecting consumers. So disappointed. I will be returning it to Amazon for a refund.
