The Lost Book of Remedies is helping Americans achieve curative self-sufficiency even in the darkest times by saving the lost remedies of our grandparents.
And heres just a glimpse of what youll find in it:
For every healing plant in my grandfathers Lost Book of Remedies, youll find several pictures that will help you identify it. Youll also discover the little things you need to look for in order to be 100% sure youve got the right plant and not a lookalike.
This part goes extremely in depth so that people with no plant knowledge can use it to its full potential. I gathered medicinal plants for my grandpa when I was just 12. If I did it back then, Im sure you can do it now too.
With hundreds of healing plants, I knew I had to find a way for people to quickly pinpoint the one they need. So first I grouped them by type and location.
If youre at home, just open the Backyard Weeds chapter to find out what medicines youre growing around your yard without even realizing it.
In addition to the clear directions for the three remedies Ive already shown you, youll also find out about hundreds of other powerful medicines.
Im sure you recognize this common driveway weed:
Even if youre living in the city, its kind of hard not to bump into it. What you probably dont know is that its a powerful anti-inflammatory that helps wounds heal a LOT faster.
Ill show you how to make a poultice out of its leaves and use it to dress your wounds or cuts.
Or if you or one of your friends is suffering from an autoimmune disease like arthritis, you can use this as a remedy immediately.
Im pretty sure you would recognize a marshmallow,

Marshmallow plant with flowers:
But Ill show you how my grandfather unlocked the powerful antiviral properties hidden in its roots.
So, whenever you have an infection caused by a virus like flu, herpes, or hepatitis A, B, or C, this remedy will slow down the viruses ability to reproduce and allow your body to fight back.
Another weed youll find in your backyard is known as senega. The name comes from the Seneca natives. They used to make a poultice from it to cure deadly snake bites during the 18th century.
A Scottish doctor observed that symptoms of rattlesnake bites resembled the advanced stages of pneumonia and lung disease, so he tried it outand it was so effective that soon the plant was exported to Europe, where it continued to save many lives.
My grandfather would turn it into an expectorant that cleared the lungs of his patients and expelled any mucus. If you ever have any kind of lung problems from the flu or a nagging cough that just wont go away, dont rush out to buy a pack of Mucinex for $35.
In this huge chapter, youll find all the other medicinal weeds and backyard plants that are hidden around your property. Youve got a homegrown pharmacy that you dont even know about! Most of these plants are edible and can provide you with precious nutrients if you ever run low on food. This goes for all the plants youll find in The Lost Book of Remediesnot only will you learn what parts of the plants are edible, but Ill also show you how to prepare them.
In the second part, youll discover how to identify the wild edibles and remedies that grow in forests.
If you ever need to go out foraging, will you know which of these plants are edible, which one is a remedy for hypertension, and which ones are poisonous?
The Native Americans knew all too well, and so did my grandfather. But very few people
