Additional Medicinal Plants

Early I noted that there are thousands of medicinal plants we do not actively utilize.With the development of agriculture and medicine, we became less dependent on wild plants and this crucial knowledge was no longer taught. Native Americans ate over one thousand plants, yet most people nowadays know fewer than 20 different species. The Lost Ways contains almost all the edible and medicinal plants in North America, and it has colored pictures so you can easily identify them. Each one has comprehensive instructions on how to eat it or use it as a remedy.

With fewer and fewer people knowing this lost knowledge of medicinal plants, you’ll be one of the few when SHTF who never runs out of medicinal essentials. Click here for your copy of The Lost Ways. If you have any questions, feel free to comment below and we will reply promptly.
