Explanation of the Book:

Restoring the use of wild plants in daily life for vibrant physical, mental, and spiritual health • Explains how 3 classes of wild plants--aromatics, bitters, and tonics--are uniquely adapted to work with our physiology because we coevolved with them • Provides simple recipes to easily integrate these plants into meals as well as formulas for teas, spirits, and tinctures • Offers practical examples of plants in each of the 3 classes, from aromatic peppermint to bitter dandelion to tonic chocolate As people moved into cities and suburbs and embraced modern medicine and industrialized food, they lost their connection to nature, in particular to the plants with which humanity coevolved. These plants are essential components of our physiologies--tangible reminders of cross-kingdom signaling--and key not only to vibrant physical health and prevention of illness but also to soothing and awakening the troubled spirit. Blending traditional herbal medicine with history, mythology, clinical practice, and recent findings in physiology and biochemistry, herbalist Guido Masé explores the three classes of plants necessary for the healthy functioning of our bodies and minds--aromatics, bitters, and tonics. He explains how bitter plants ignite digestion, balance blood sugar, buffer toxicity, and improve metabolism; how tonic plants normalize the functions of our cells and nourish the immune system; and how aromatic plants relax tense organs, nerves, and muscles and stimulate sluggish systems, whether physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. He reveals how wild plants regulate our heart variability rate and adjust the way DNA is read by our cells, controlling the self-destructive tendencies that lead to chronic inflammation or cancer. Offering examples of ancient and modern uses of wild plants in each of the 3 classes--from aromatic peppermint to bitter dandelion to tonic chocolate--Masé provides easy recipes to integrate them into meals as seasonings and as central ingredients in soups, stocks, salads, and grain dishes as well as including formulas for teas, spirits, and tinctures. Providing a framework for safe and effective use as well as new insights to enrich the practice of advanced herbalists, he shows how healing “wild plant deficiency syndrome”--that is, adding wild plants back into our diets--is vital not only to our health but also to our spiritual development.

Explanation of the Book:

Emma Mitchell has suffered with depression for 25 years. In 2003, she left the city and began to take walks in the countryside around her new home, photographing, collecting and drawing as she went. Each walk was as medicinal as any talking therapy or pharmaceutical. Emma's moving and candid account of her year is a powerful testament to how reconnecting with nature may offer some answers to today's mental health epidemic. While charting her own seasonal highs and lows, she also explains the science behind such changes, calling on new research into such areas as forest bathing and the ways in which our bodies and minds respond to wildlife. Filled with Emma's beautiful drawings, paintings and photography, this is a truly unique book for anyone who has ever felt drawn to nature and wondered about its influence over us.

Explanation of the Book:

A wonderful guide to finding and using these natural ingredients—for teas, cooking, and more. Exquisitely illustrated with full-color paintings of all the plants and herbs in the book, Edible Wild Plants & Herbs is both a cookbook and a field guide to the identification and use of foodstuffs from the wild. There are almost four hundred recipes covering nearly one hundred different plant varieties, and the illustrations—drawn from life by a leading botanical artist—show the edible parts of the plants at their peak time for picking. In addition, there is a calendar indicating what plants to look for at each season of the year, and information on where the plants are found and how to identify them. Covering plants from dandelion and sorrel to sea beet and samphire, this is both a cookbook and a field guide to the identification and use of foodstuffs from the wild. In the past, the home kitchen provided a family with all its medicines and cosmetics as well as its food, wine, pickles, and preserves. Our ancestors were resourceful and imaginative and very much in tune with nature; this book recaptures their harmonious, sustainable way of life by setting down for the modern reader all that knowledge and lore, plus recipes for soups, sauces, main dishes, salads, pickles, jams, and sorbets, as well as teas, syrups and lotions. Note to the reader: This is a fully revised and updated edition of the book previously published as All Good Things Around Us, and includes new recipes and information.

Explanation of the Book:

The Wild is filled with thousands of varieties of natural foods and herbs. Sadly, man has gradually lost his way with mother earth. Most food is developed on huge ranches, many gather food by making a trip to the super market, and some go to the eateries or markets while the vast majority has never observed it growing out of the ground. Until it arrives at our kitchens, we have no connection with the food we eat. While trying to gather your food can be very daunting, you don't have to worry about that anymore. Thankfully, The book Wild Remedies: How Nature Feeds and Heals Us is thoughtful, insightful and very interactive. It will help you to explore, identify and forage natural foods and herbs in the wild and also create a deep attachment with nature and the world of natural plants and herbs. Discovering natural ways to make great and simple meals rich in high nourishment has now been made easy. These natural plants also have powerful healing benefits, and that is what makes this book a MUST READ. This variety of natural plants and herbs includes wild edible greens, fruits, roots and nuts and even palatable mushrooms. The advantages of rummaging and essential precautionary measures to take while searching are widely and expressly examined in this book. In all actuality, I strongly recommend this book for those who need to get the best out of their quest from earth's tremendous variety of regular edible foods.
