Introduction

My great-grandmother Na never went to a doctor in her life. She dismissed doctors as charlatans, saw their medicines as harmful, and thought hospitals were places you went to die. Her back-then attitudes weren’t that much different from our attitudes today, only now we mistrust shifty HMOs, spiraling hospital bills, and the side effects of drugs. Just like my grandmother, we believe that I can do it better. One of the most famous doctors of this century, Albert Schweitzer, expressed exactly this sentiment: It’s supposed to be a professional secret, but I’ll tell you anyway. We doctors do nothing. We only help and encourage the doctor within.

Indeed, roughly 80 percent of the world’s population uses traditional medicine for primary health care. And lest you doubt the effectiveness of plant remedies, realize that about 30 percent of prescription drugs are still synthesized from plants. As we enter the 21st century, Na’s attitude toward medicine is experiencing an amazing rebirth, even in our high-tech Western culture. An increasing array of commercially prepared herbal remedies faces me whenever I enter the drugstore. There are even whole commercial chains devoted to selling the cures that wise women and men have been making themselves for centuries!

More and more clever people continue to do so today, and that’s where this book comes in. Herbal preparations can be as much of a pleasure to consume as they are to make. Why choke down factory-made pills with water like any prescription when you can take your medicine in a civilized glass of wine? Why force some artificially flavored cough elixir into your daughter when you could give her a lavender- or lemon-flavored one that will soothe her raw throats as well? And even more important, why disregard powerful herbal allies in our quest for good health?

Caution

Like any medicine, it is important to use herbs with care. The simple herbal recipes in this booklet are meant to inspire, and they are not given as medical advice. For your individual health concerns, for chronic warning symptoms, in emergency situations, or when in doubt, seek the advice of your primary health-care practitioner.

As you will see, all you need in order to make your own herbal remedies is the following:
