That We Lost to History
And here's just a glimpse of what you'll find in it:
For every healing plant in my grandfather's Lost Book of Remedies, you'll find several pictures that will help you identify it. You'll also discover the little things you need to look for in order to be 100% sure you've got the right plant and not a lookalike.
This part goes extremely in depth so that people with no plant knowledge can use it to its full potential. I gathered medicinal plants for my grandpa when I was just 12. If I did it back then, I'm sure you can do it now too.
With hundreds of healing plants, I knew I had to find a way for people to quickly pinpoint the one they need. So first I grouped them by type and location.
If you're at home, just open the "Backyard Weeds" chapter to find out what "medicines" you're growing around your yard without even realizing it.
In addition to the clear directions for the three remedies I've already shown you, you'll also find out about hundreds of other powerful medicines.
I'm sure you recognize this common driveway weed:
The Lost Book Of Remedies
Even if you're living in the city, it's kind of hard not to bump into it. What you probably don't know is that it's a powerful anti-inflammatory that helps wounds heal a LOT faster.
The Lost Book Of Remedies
I'll show you how to make a poultice out of its leaves and use it to dress your wounds or cuts.
Or if you or one of your friends is suffering from an autoimmune disease like arthritis, you can use this as a remedy immediately.
I'm pretty sure you would recognize a marshmallow,
...but maybe you wouldn't recognize the Marshmallow plant growing in your backyard.
Marshmallow plant with flowers:
But I'll show you how my grandfather unlocked the powerful antiviral properties hidden in its roots.
So, whenever you have an infection caused by a virus like flu, herpes, or hepatitis A, B, or C, this remedy will slow down the viruses' ability to reproduce and allow your body to fight back.
Another weed you'll find in your backyard is known as senega. The name comes from the Seneca natives. They used to make a poultice from it to cure deadly snake bites during the 18th century.
A Scottish doctor observed that symptoms of rattlesnake bites resembled the advanced stages of pneumonia and lung disease, so he tried it out... and it was so effective that soon the plant was exported to Europe, where it continued to save many lives.
My grandfather would turn it into an expectorant that cleared the lungs of his patients and expelled any mucus. If you ever have any kind of lung problems from the flu or a nagging cough that just won't go away, don't rush out to buy a pack of Mucinex for $35.
In this huge chapter, you'll find all the other medicinal weeds and backyard plants that are hidden around your property. You've got a homegrown pharmacy that you don't even know about! Most of these plants are edible and can provide you with precious nutrients if you ever run low on food. This goes for all the plants you'll find in The Lost Book of Remedies-not only will you learn what parts of the plants are edible, but I'll also show you how to prepare them.
In the second part, you'll discover how to identify thewild edibles and remedies that grow in forests.
If you ever need to go out foraging, will you know which of these plants are edible, which one is a remedy for hypertension, and which ones are poisonous?
The Native Americans knew all too well, and so did my grandfather. But very few people nowadays know, so don't feel bad if you don't. These kinds of skills will set you apart in any group... and will probably turn you into their guide or even savior.
I'm also sure that you've seen this plant too. It grows in most forest glades.
I'm also sure that you've seen this plant too. It grows in most forest glades.
You'll discover how to use it to effectively treat not only common colds but lung infections as well. Breathing in the steam from leaves that have been boiled in water will also calm any asthma attack.
This is why 100 years ago people with asthma didn't die from it.
If you ever walk through the edges of woodland, and get some sticky burrs attached to your clothing...
...you can bet you've just passed by this plant:
The best way to deal with this annoying weed?
Native Americans used it as a sweetener 200 years ago, and it tastes better than all the greens I know.
What people don't know is that this plant is a strong diuretic that you can also take for poor blood circulation. If you've ever felt a tingling and numbness sensation in a limb in certain positions, you probably have bad circulation. I've seen my grandfather's patients go from dizzy and tired most of the time to having an excess of energy in less than three weeks.
In the third part, you'll discover how to identify the wild edibles and remedies that grow especially in the prairie.
Most of these are spread all over America as well.
...which can be easily turned into one of the most powerful Antipyretics. This means that it drastically reduces the fever. If fact, the name "Boneset" was derived from the plant's use in the treatment of Breakbone Fever.
Here is another widespread weed:
The folk name of this plants is the Cowboy's Toilet Paper. If you've ever touched its soft leaves, you understand why.
If you ever get an infected wound or cut, just apply The Frontier Poultice you'll find in my grandfather's notebook. I personally haven't seen a modern bandage that heals wounds faster and better than this.
And I'll also show you the strange reason why putting a leaf of this plant in your shoes in the morning is as good as a cold shower and a cup of coffee.
A similar weed, called Woolly Lamb's Ear, can be added to the frontier poultice to stop the bleeding in a matter of seconds.
This plant is high in Vitamin K, the vitamin that coagulates the blood. It is the powdered vitamin that was given to soldiers in WWII to pour over their wounds if they were shot. My grandfather used it when the bandages ran out and his brothers in arms were bleeding to death. I hope you never find yourself looking down at a wound that just won't stop bleeding, but if you do, be sure the frontier poultice is your best shot-other than being in the ICU. And if you or a loved one has diabetes or problems with coagulation or wound healing, make sure you have this healing cataplasm around your home without delay.
No matter where you live in America, there's a source of water nearby. And when there's water, there are... cattails.
If you find cattails, you'll have all the things needed for survival: water, food, shelter, and fuel.
You probably already know cattails are edible, but I doubt you know how tasty they are. I'll show you how I cook them in the field and at home and how to turn them into flour.
But probably the most important and least known thing about cattails is the jelly-like substance that grows between its leaves.
My grandfather prescribed it for most severe skin infections. And let me tell you, it's nothing short of a miracle. I've seen abscesses the size of a plate healing in just days. This gel is also one of the best cures for nail and foot fungus.
On a different note, this gel is the only part of the cattail that is widely considered to not be edible. It's not poisonous... so why isn't it edible?
Well, because it has a powerful numbing effect on moist tissues. It has even been used as a Novocaine substitute. Yes, it's an anesthetic that you can use in many, many situations. When the pioneers were hit with a ravaging toothache, they would just go get their jar of cattail ooze and rub it around their gums. The pain would subside in minutes.
Another part of The Lost Book of Remedies comprises all the medicinal and edible trees in North America.
One of the things you'll find here is the ultimate survival tree that grows on almost every street in the U.S. I call it that because you can use the sap as medicine, its flowers as sleeping pills, its leaves as food, and the inner bark as cordage.
You don't need much more than this to stay alive. But only a handful of people still know this lost skill. So, if you're an old-timer like me or my grandfather, get ready to use this knowledge for its full potential.
Do you recognize this tree?
You might even have scraped yourself on one of its thorns as a child.
The Native Americans would cook its honey-sweet pods and eat them. The sharp young spines were used as pins, nails, spear points, and animal traps during the Civil War, when the South suffered many shortages.
According to a recent medical study at Michigan State University, the flowers of this tree strongly prevent the spread and growth of prostate, breast, colon, and lung tumors.
You'll find all of these things in The Lost Book of Remedies.
Really, there's too much to say here. There are hundreds of plants you'll find in my grandfather's book, and you'll learn how to turn them into powerful cures.
Medicines in the past ALL originated from plants, until companies started making synthetic versions. This forgotten wisdom should be brought back. Today is your chance to play a role in doing that by putting The Lost Book of Remedies where it belongs: on your bookshelf or in your medicine cabinet.
Finally, in the last chapter of The Lost Book of Remedies...
...you'll find the once common treatments our grandparents used whenever they were ill.
These are the cures of my childhood and, if you've been here a while, maybe yours as well.
I'm talking about the common folk remedies they used to bring down fever, cure a sore throat, banish the flu, and many, many more. They used only common household items that you probably have in your cupboard right this second...
...like the spice you add to your meals that can stop bleeding in just a matter of seconds.
You'll also discover the one substance you probably overlooked and should add to your medicinal kit or stockpile. This detoxifying agent kills parasites and viruses in the digestive tract.
Or the common household "stain buster" that can clear away most fungus and bacterial skin infections. But you can also use it to disinfect huge quantities of water, even a well. It's much better than bleach, which leaves an odor for weeks.
As I've told you before, this is just a small glimpse of what you'll find in The Lost Book of Remedies. My grandfather's lifetime work is captured inside, but it's not just that. It's your grandparents' work too... and the generation before them.
Over hundreds of years, they conducted the longest, largest, and most honest clinical trial ever.
It's one that pharmaceutical companies' self-funded clinical trials rarely match. With big money on the line, they need these trials to validate their drugs. That's why many pills on the market today have a minimal effect or no effect at all.
If you get The Lost Book of Remedies today, you'll also be able to take advantage of two exclusive gifts that will be off the table soon.
The first report you'll get is The 72 Square-Feet Medicinal Garden in Your Back Yard.
Wouldn't it be nice to walk out into your back yard and find the medicine you need growing right there?
If you think about it, 72 square feet is a very small piece of land; it's only 12 feet by 6 feet (3m x 2.2m). So no matter how small your backyard is, you can grow your own natural remedies there.
SHFT Medicinal Garden
I'll show you how to make a raised garden bed just like mine with the most effective medicinal plants you need as well as how to plant and harvest them.
You'll have the ingredients for my grandfather's remedies within reach, so your medicinal garden will stand toe to toe with any conventional pharmacy.
The second report you'll get is called Disaster Medicine: A Handbook for When Help Is NOT on the Way.
In a cataclysmic crisis, you can bet help is not coming from anyone but yourself. In this bonus, you'll find the 20 most common infections and diseases you could catch during a crisis, and you'll learn how to diagnose and how to treat them
Everyday Disaster Medicine Guidebook
In a crisis, they'll account for more than 95% of medical fatalities. And all that is just scratching the surface of what this bonus has in store for you.
