Did you know that dandelions can help relieve indigestion? Jude Williams does, and she wants to share her knowledge of herbal remedies in Nature’s Gentle Cures. The book focuses on holistic cures rather than symptomatic treatments and explains how to utilize the healing properties of plants. Williams has collected herbal remedies for some of the most common ailments, such as arthritis, asthma, upset stomach, and fatigue.
Whether you have asthma, diabetes, or a reproductive system disorder you’re simply not feeling up to par you’ll want to investigate some of the herbs, foods, vitamins and minerals with which naturopath and master herbalist Jude Williams has been successfully treating patients for years. If you do, you’ll discover that valerian tea is helpful in the treatment of arthritis (instructions on how to make the tea are included); that calcium and the B vitamins reduce premenstrual tension (you’ll find a list of foods rich in the mineral and vitamins); and that cranberry, apple, and watermelon are among a host of juices recommended for individuals with hypertension. With time-tested recipes for tonics, tinctures, poultices, and more (plus a clear explanation of why natural remedies are better it’s all in the phytochemicals), this book will help you harness the healing power of plants.
