'We now live in a world where pharmaceutical companies control the way in which we perceive medicinal remedies. It used to be that we relied on herbs for health but that has now been taken away from us by EU regulations. These two books by James Wong begin to help re-balance our choices by describing how to let herbs back into our lives instead of being forced into chemicals. Both are extremely helpful books full of advice on what to grow, how to prepare the herbs and what ailments can be treated. Well worth taking!'
Best wishes to everyone, Di and Chris
