Handbook for Health & Well-Being
In the East, it is well understood that we are part of the elements, and our balance within them keeps us in harmony. In the West, our disconnection from nature has made us sicker as we stay inside more. Central heating keeps us at the same temperature, the food is barely even food, and the medicines often have more side effects than the disease itself.
Our lack of light, fresh air, connection to the Earth, which has been cut off by plastic soles in our shoes, has led to poor energy levels and ultimately dis-ease.
Meanwhile, the medicine that nature provides for us - that we call weeds - we destroy with carcinogenic sprays, in our bid for the manicured lawn that sustains zero life.
Scottish Foraging Guide
Our book, Scotland's Wild Medicine, brings this ancient knowledge back to you, along with techniques you can use, plants you can forage, and recipes and medicines you can make for you and your family. The seasonal guide is both practical and beautiful, detailing what you can find on your doorstep each month of the year.
