Herbal medicine - the oldest form of treatment in the world
Natural remedies, especially medicinal plants, have long been the only remedy for doctors and pharmacists. Medicinal plants also served as important raw materials for the production of medicines.
Determine, collect and dry medicinal plants
Medicinal plants can be found almost everywhere in nature - on meadows, in the forest, on the wayside. This book explains how to collect medicinal plants and determine which plant parts to use, whether it’s the flowers, leaves, fruits, roots or bark.
Herbal preparations - medicinal plants can be used in a variety of ways
The simplest usage form of medicinal herbs is tea. However, there is a far greater range of uses of medicinal plants. Known medicinal herb preparations include e.g. tinctures, ointments, creams; they can also be used in baths. The book provides an overview of the preparation and use of the individual dosage forms.
