For anyone interested in using herbs for home treatment I can recommend a great newsletter. Herbal Legacy is a website that has been created as a way for people to find out more about the late Dr. John R Christopher and his remedies. He was a 20th centaury herbalist who immersed himself in the study of plants after a series of life challenges and illnesses. He set up schools of natural healing in the US and put together many herbal formulas and combinations which are all published on the Herbal Legacy website. He is said to be a ‘visionary’ and ‘ahead of his time’.
I have used a number of his formulas for myself and my family and found them very effective. For example have a look at his extensive information on treating asthma. One of his ideas was to have a ‘herbalist in every home’ and on that level I find his ideas very empowering. Although it is possible to buy many of Dr Christopher’s products on the internet (although of course it is equally possible to make them yourself given his instructions) the Herbal Legacy site is a non profit site that ‘aims to educate people through the correct use of herbs and nutrition’.
The newsletter is full of interesting advice and often includes a healthy recipe. You can sign up here. Here is an extract on self reliance in healthcare from the latest news letter:
