So, I purchased a copy of the Lost Book of Herbal Remedies so I could use it for research and to bring some information to Zozeco, but I decided to do a Lost Book of Herbal Remedies Review.
First, who could not just adore Dr. Nicole Apelian? First off, she is a Doctor who is a Survival Skills instructor, herbalist, anthropologist, biologist and mother. If that’s not impressive enough, when you go to purchase her book from her web page, she personally greets you and tells you her story. It is Written by Dr. Nicole Apelian and Claude Davis, and funny story is I already had the first book, “The Lost Book of Remedies”, some time ago and it had Claude Davis name on the front.
What is the difference between The Lost book of Herbal Remedies and The Lost book of Remedies
If you ask, “What is the difference between The Lost book of Herbal Remedies and The Lost book of Remedies?”, from what I can tell, it is an updated version with more content. If you purchase online through the link provided, it will also provide you with Everyday Disaster Medicine Guidebook, An Awesome 80 Square-feet SHTF Medicinal Garden, and The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies PDF E-Book. You can purchase just the E-book, but I recommend purchasing a physical copy, because if it does hit the fan you may not have access to a computer and it makes a nice coffee table book for your homestead.
So, on to the book review… you'll find 800+ beneficial plants and remedies in "The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies". It includes recipes of tinctures, teas, decoctions, essential oils, syrups, salves, poultices, infusions and many other natural remedies that our grandparents used for centuries. What's also special about this book is that it has between 2 - 4 high definition, color pictures for each plant and detailed identification guidelines to make sure you've got the right plant.
Holistic herbs, plants and trees
Not only will you find holistic herbs, plants and trees, it will show you some sources of food you can forage and the health benefits of them. Each herb or plant it covers provides you with an image, edible use, medicinal use, warnings and recipes. It is, quite possibly, one of the most important books to have if it does hit the fan or in a prepper situation, but would also make a good teaching book for your home school curriculum or research material for blogs. Every homestead should have this book and you would be invaluable in a disaster/ prepper situation with the wealth of knowledge it brings. I would give this a 5-star review for its wealth of information. You can tell this was a labor of love and I highly recommend this book.
