Spices of Life Book Excerpt:

In this groundbreaking cookbook, Nina Simonds offers us more than 175 luscious recipes, along with practical tips for a sensible lifestyle, that demonstrate that health-giving foods not only provide pleasure but can make a huge difference in our lives. With her emphasis on the tonic properties of a wide variety of foods, herbs, and spices, this book also brings us up to date on the latest scientific research. In every recipe–gathered from cultures around the world in which good eating is a way of life–Simonds gives us dishes that are both irresistible and have a positive effect on one’s well-being. For example: -Cardamom, a key digestive, subtly seasons her Steamed Asparagus with Cardamom Butter. -Cinnamon, which strengthens the heart and alleviates nervous tension, adds spice to her Fragrant Cinnamon Pork with Sweet Potatoes. -Basil has long been used as a healing salve and in teas. So who wouldn’t feel rejuvenated by a delicious bowlful of Sun-Dried Tomato Soup with Fresh Basil? -Peanuts, which fortify the immune system and lower cholesterol, provide a tasty, crunchy accent in Sichuan Kung Pao Chicken. -Mint, which has many healing properties, from taming muscle spasms to dissolving gallstones, can be relished in Minty Snap Peas accompanying Pan-Roasted Salmon or in a Pineapple Salsa served with Jerk Pork Cutlets. -And peaches give us vitamin C, beta carotene, and fiber. So enjoy them in a wonderful Gingery Peach-a-Berry Cobbler. To help us understand what part these health-restoring foods can play in our lives, Simonds peppers Spices of Life with lively interviews with a variety of experts, including Dr. Jim Duke, who offers anti-aging advice from his Herbal Farmacy; Dr. Andrew Weil, who discusses his latest nutritional findings; and Dr. U. K. Krishna, who explains basic Ayurvedic practices for healthy living. And more. With its delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes and concise health information, this delightful book opens up a whole new world of tastes for us to enjoy every day and to share with family and friends.

Laurie Pippen s All Natural Antibacterial Agents Book Excerpt:

The classification antibacterial includes anything that destroys bacteria or inhibits the ability of bacteria to grow and reproduce. Herbals approach bacterial infection from two directions. They stimulate the immune system to produce more immune cells aiding your body’s ability to fight the infection and they act in direct opposition to bacteria by inhibiting their ability to grow and reproduce so they cannot survive. The first line of defense against bacterial infection is prevention. Disinfecting surfaces with known antibacterial cleaners, maintaining good health through diet, rest, and exercise, and minimizing exposure to infectious agents is far more effective than any treatment plan in the continued battle against bacteria. Regardless of the preventative care you take, there are always times where treating an infection will be necessary. Traditionally, bacterial infection is fought by blending herbals that support the body’s own natural defenses with those that act to inhibit and kill the bacteria. Using a combination that blends both actions helps to minimize the duration and severity of any infection. Many herbs and oils act as natural immunostimulant and antibacterial agents. Some of these natural products work as well as or even better than the products sold in your local pharmacy. Some of the items in your local pharmacy are even created based on the chemical constituents of plants you might have growing in your own yard. This guide contains antibacterial agents that act as both disinfectants for infected air and surfaces and disease fighting agents for the body. Both categories eliminate harmful bacteria. It is important that you read the traditional uses and side effects of each plant and discuss any alternative treatment with a qualified herbalist or physician prior to choosing a natural product.

Laurie Pippen s All Natural Colorants for Cosmetic Culinary and Textile Dyeing Book Excerpt:

Colorants are everywhere. You can find dyes in your decor, cosmetics, food, and in nearly every fabric in the home from your socks to your furniture. Many of these dyes are made using chemical alternatives to the abundant selection of all natural colorants you can find cheaply and easily in your own backyard. Whether you are hoping to make life more natural by creating your own, homemade colorants or hoping to replace one or two synthetic colorants with all natural plant dyes, you will find that coloring with natural choices is easy, fun, and yields amazing results. A natural colorant is a colorant that comes from minerals, plants, or invertebrates. The most common natural colorants come from plant sources like bark, berries, flowers, leaves, and roots. Potential dyeing options are everywhere and this book only illustrates the most traditionally used colorants and the methods I have employed to obtain my desired results. My favorite forms of natural dyes come from plant parts like berries, flowers, leaves, nuts, and roots. After reading this guide and gaining some skill with natural dyes, you should look around and experiment to see what new and creative natural colorants might be available in your own back yard. Remember that natural colorants are not just for dyeing fabric. You can use natural colorants to create homemade ink, paint, or even to dye Easter eggs. Some of our countries oldest documents were written with ink made from natural colorants. You can also use natural colorants to make meals more healthy and appealing. Sometimes I like to use unusual colors to make mealtime fun for the whole family. Purple mashed potatoes or glowing orange rice is always a fun surprise. You can even use plant products when you make personal care products like make up, soaps, and hair colorant. Many commercial cosmetics you purchase have their color roots in natural product dyes and with a little knowledge and a bit of practice, you can become a master at making pleasing looking and smelling products for your family that actually have benefits to go with their attractiveness. Nearly anything you work with that needs color is a potential choice for natural plant dyes! Natural colorants come in every shade you might want. You can even blend or tone the colors up and down to achieve the exact result you need for your project.
