Book Description

Not all of us are into formal gardening. A good solution is to make a wildlife garden, with a wild flower meadow and patches of important food plants for wildlife. So you end up with a garden full of weeds and other wild plants. Can you make home remedies from such unpromising material? Yes, you can.

Natural remedies go back into antiquity, and if you think about it, there wasn't the range of plants available which we now expect to find. None of the culinary herbs we all know and love - most of them were taken to the UK by the Romans some 2000 years ago, brought to the New World with the Pilgrim Fathers in the 1600s.

It's believed that even many common weeds originated with the Roman Empire, so now you know who to blame! But they didn't carry these plants with them for no reason. They had a purpose - and that purpose was for use as natural cures for common ailments, most of which we still suffer from today.

"Home Remedies from Weeds and Wild Flowers" gives you the information you need about many usually overlooked weeds and wildflowers; how to grow them, which parts to harvest and when, which remedies to make with them and what to use them for.

One man's weed is another man's wild flower

3.0 out of 5 stars One chapter or category, not a book February 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This review covers Volume 7 of, thus far, 9 in the Herbal Medicine from Your Garden or Windowsill Series: Home Remedies from Weeds and Wild Flowers (98 pgs/26 herbs) free today but Kindle List Price is $2.99.

I always like to start with the positives, so let me start with the

Good information about Wildcrafting issues and legalities.
Good information, if brief, on the issue of organics and also of safety
Most of the pictures are good quality and many are good enough to use for field identification.
Good information on "invasive" classification or not, herb by herb.
Sufficient herb by herb pregnancy contraindications
Photography credited to individual sources
Pretty good editing
Occasional obscure and interesting information tidbits that I have not seen anywhere else.
8.5 Kindle pages of a repertory (herbs listed for conditions.)

Now a brief list of some of the

Often no definitions of obscure (to a non-herbalist) words.
No key to abbreviations.
Preparation and dosage is way too vague for a stand-alone book. It may be covered in Volume 1 and occasionally that's noted, but this is billed as a stand-alone book.
No underlying philosophy, no idea of how or why to use a particular herb instead of another herb for any particular dis-ease
No bibliography

Overall, this book reminds me of nothing so much as my Materia Medica notes from school.

We know from the title that these herbs should fall into the class of "Weeds and Wildflowers" but that's really all we do know about this grouping.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book for naturopaths April 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are interested in native American medicine or if your are a naturopath and if you wish to grow medicinal herbs at home then this book is for you. There are photographs of the various herbs, their uses and methods of preparation of the various herbal medicines.
Just remember this! Some of the herbs are poisonous and could prove to be fatal if you handle them often. Pregnant women should also take care when handling some of the herbs. Consult your doctor before you try this therapy.
Otherwise, an interesting book.

Home Remedies from Weeds and Wild Flowers (Herbal Medicine from Your Garden or Windowsill)
Interesting learning about how weeds and wild flowers, etc are used and how and why. This book is full of so much useful information I found it hard to absorb it in one sitting.
Each comes with a colorful picture along with it's Latin name and how large the plant might get. Where to grow, how and when. Uses for the plant are discussed.
Also has a very expansive index of remedies for ailments and what plants derivatives might lead to a cure.

More About the Author

Hi. This is the place where I'm supposed to go on about how brilliant I am, I guess, but being a Brit, I find that quite difficult.

What I can say is that I've been into herbal medicine and related things for many years, as well as organic gardening. If you've seen my sites about these subjects, you'll have seen the reasons why I got involved, all driven by life's events.

I've always loved cooking, and since my dad was a trained chef, I learned early on how to mix and match flavors, and the right way to do things. So when I found out I was gluten intolerant, the first thing I did was to gather together a bunch of recipes. Why not share them? I thought. So I did.

That explains my areas of interest, and my books. For the truth about the real me, you'll have to come over and share a cup of coffee...

In addition to the books listed below, I also edited Sita Parani's book "The Secret Keys to the Law of Attraction" (ASIN B0091J3486) and George E. Hunter's "Connections to the Cosmos" (ASIN B00CS94QZQ), both of which I recommend highly!
