HEALING POWER OF CELTIC PLANTS Angela Paine
The Celts were a successful and vigorous people who spread all over Europe a few thousand years ago. They practised what many in the medical profession today say is crucial to good health - drinking copious quantities of pure spring water, eating fresh vegetables, fruit and grains, and taking plenty of exercise. They were also a shamanic people, treating their environment with respect. One of the most fascinating aspects of their culture was their use of plant medicine. Many of the herbs they employed are still used clinically today to treat a range of conditions. Each of them is covered here in depth, explaining their history, myth and symbolism and also how to grow, preserve, prepare and use them. Not only are their properties examined, but also the scientific evidence that they work. Learn from the practice of our ancestors to improve your own health and lifestyle.
