About this book

It's too easy to turn to the pharmacy when we're stressed, sick or feeling under the weather, but what if you turned to your garden instead?

For thousands of years, people who had no access to clinical medicine knew how to boost their well-being by using the ingredients they found in plants. There's a rich history waiting to be plucked from around you. Herbs are the people's medicine; often freely available and abundant, they are ready and waiting for you to use them to soothe and heal your body and mind.

Horticultural expert and Guardian columnist, Alys Fowler, shows how to take control of your health by adopting a more natural lifestyle. Offering a fusion of botanical, practical, cultural and historical information, as well as beautiful illustrations, A Modern Herbal reveals how common herbs are the simple, cleansing way to better health and happiness.
