The natural health remedies your local pharmacist doesn't want you to know about Adding flowers to your soup, using peppers for body pain, applying leaves to fight head lice... These measures may seem like crazy quackery, but they are actually common and practical therapies based on natural, holistic principles. Plants have been used as medicine for centuries, and even today, researchers continue to turn to the plant world to find effective treatments and cures for ailments ranging from a simple headache to a potential cure for cancer. In fact, you might even be taking some supplements made from these plants and vastly overpaying big pharmaceutical companies for them. But that's not the only thing you should be concerned about. Manufactured drugs often come with several side effects. Just take a look at the pamphlet that comes with any medication--the long list of possible side effects will make you wonder why you're taking it in the first place. Long-term medication of pain relievers and other prescription drugs has also been found to cause serious liver damage. If you want to reduce the amount of chemicals you take in, adding more natural remedies to your health routine can help. As a good starting point, you can begin with easily available plants that you may already have in your home. To find out what these are and how they can be used, refer to this user-friendly guide to medicinal plants. In Medicinal Herbs and Plants, here is just a fraction of what you will discover: A natural way to boost male libido and re-energize the body without resorting to dangerous stimulants How to completely stop your dependence on painkillers to manage menstrual cramps with this one soothing herb The essential staple in your kitchen that should also be a central component in your medicine cabinet Practical and easy-to-follow tips on the correct methods of applying or consuming plants and herbs to maximize their effectivity How you can save even more money by using medicinal herbs and plants with this home-based pursuit What you shouldn't do with ginger if you don't want to experience this inconvenience at the wrong time Why this "golden" flower has been used for healing (and pest control) purposes for centuries And much more. As long as you consult your physician before taking any herbal medicine, incorporating medicinal plants into your healthcare routine shouldn't be a problem. These natural remedies are not meant to be instant fixes, nor a replacement for medical care, but a gradual treatment of your entire system that will result in longer-term effects. They can also complement medical treatments, such as helping to alleviate the side effects of chemotherapy. Although this alternative may not be as fast-acting as pharmaceutical drugs, the overall benefits to your health and lifestyle will be worth it. Save yourself an expensive trip to the pharmacy and pay a visit to your local market instead.

Nearly all cultures, from ancient times to today, have used plants as a source of medicine. In many developing countries, traditional medicine is still the mainstay of health care and most of the drugs and cures used come from plants. In developed countries many people are turning to herbal remedies. With this widespread use has come the assumption that plants identified as having medicinal qualities will be available on a continuing basis. However no concerted effort has been made to ensure this and in the face of the threats of increasing demand, a vastly increasing human population and extensive forest destruction, there can be no guarantee that we will continue to benefit indefinitely from this valuable resource. In light of this situation the World Health Organisation held a meeting in 1988. This book is the outcome of that meeting, detailing in a series of papers by leading experts the problems of which need to be addressed, the existing experiences from a range of countries and the future direction which must be taken to ensure the conservation of the world's medicinal plants.

From tulsi to turmeric, echinacea to elderberry, medicinal herbs are big business—but do they deliver on their healing promise—to those who consume them, those who provide them, and the natural world? “An eye-opener. . . . [Armbrecht] challenges ideas of what medicine can be, and how business practices can corrupt, and expand, our notions of plant-based healing.”—The Boston Globe "So deeply honest, sincere, heartful, questioning, and brilliant. . . . [The Business of Botanicals] is an amazing book, that plunges in, and takes a deepening look at those places where people don’t often venture."—Rosemary Gladstar, author of Rosemary Gladstar's Medicinal Herbs "For those who loved Braiding Sweetgrass, this book is a perfect opportunity to go deeper into understanding the complex and co-evolutionary journey of plants and people." —Angela McElwee, former president and CEO of Gaia Herbs Using herbal medicines to heal the body is an ancient practice, but in the twenty-first century, it is also a worldwide industry. Yet most consumers know very little about where those herbs come from and how they are processed into the many products that fill store shelves. In The Business of Botanicals, author Ann Armbrecht follows their journey from seed to shelf, revealing the inner workings of a complicated industry, and raises questions about the ethical and ecological issues of mass production of medicines derived from these healing plants, many of which are imperiled in the wild. This is the first book to explore the interconnected web of the global herb industry and its many stakeholders, and is an invaluable resource for conscious consumers who want to better understand the social and environmental impacts of the products they buy. "Armbrecht masterfully manages the challenges and complexity of her source material . . . [She] is a spirited storyteller . . . [and] presents all this with the skill of an anthropologist and the heart of an herbalist."—Journal of the American Herbalists Guild

The complex and important relationship between public expenditure and economic performance has been the subject of numerous econometric studies. But the studies remain inconclusivesome results have shown positive relationships, while others are negative. Thus there is no conventional wisdom backed by statistical evidence on this relationship, nor is there any sort of clear theoretical underpinning that explains how the aggregate of government spending acts on the growth of total output. This book studies the role of public expenditures in a noneconometric way by examining a number of specific instances of these expenditures and their direct effect on economic performance. Specifically, the authors presents scenarios from Botswana, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, and Zambia and ask a series of questions to identify and illuminate the impact of these instances of public expenditure on a number of variables that help measure economic performance. These examples are then used to make generalizations about the relationship between public spending and economic performance.
