‘Let food be your medicine…’

The Nature Cures Pocketbooks expand on popular topics in the encyclopaedic, 1300-page Nature Cures: The A to Z of Ailments and Natural Foods, including specific foods and food groups, health problems, ailments and symptoms. (The series complements and is supported by the author’s internationally popular website, which has already received over 2,000,000 hits.)

The roots of plants have been used as medicines and nutritious food for thousands of years. Many have astonishing properties which can remedy a wide variety of human ailments and diseases without the harmful side-effects of powerful medications. Many should be an important part of the daily diet but are often neglected; others can easily be made into healing ‘infusions’, ‘tinctures’ and ‘decoctions’. This A to Z pocket guide of medicinal roots includes their nutritional values and which health issues they can help to treat and prevent.
