Herbal Book Recommendation on World AIDS day
A few years ago I received a copy of the book Natural Medicine in the Tropics: IV AIDS and Natural Medicine by Hans-Martin Hirt quite by accident from Echo Books. It is not a book I would have typically ordered, but I was very impressed with it and have referred to various recipes frequently. The book includes recipes that are recommended based on modern medicine, clinical studies, and feedback from caregivers in the Tropics who have tried the recipes. The book includes many simple recipes which have herbal ingredients which are relatively easy to find, especially if you are living in tropical areas. Some of these herbs include Garlic, Lemon grass, Aloe vera, Ginger, and Neem. In addition to general immune stimulating recipes, specific recipes are also provided for AIDS related diseases. For example, there are sections for nausea and vomiting, bed sores, bronchitis, coughs and colds, Kaposi's Sarcoma, etc.
Here are a few of the many recipes included in the book:
For Fever drink 3 liters of lemon grass tea each day.
For ear ache put a few drops of neem oil into the ear.
For herpes make a garlic oil by putting squeezed garlic cloves in good vegetable oil for a few days. Put this on the sores two or three times a day.
This book is available from Echo Bookstore online.
