This pandemic has taught us that it is crucial time for all of us, to stay in control of our health. It is the best time for us to discover and learn about Herbal Remedies. Read on to understand why.
If not busy, we are locked down at home. Mostly remote and having minimal access to things, we seem to be looking for answers and shortcuts which help in resolving any ‘prospective’ scarcity issues and address medical issues.
A common behavior we observed during the pandemic was restocking our pantry, our refrigerators, medicines, face masks, not to forget ‘toilet-rolls’, in case of emergencies. Consuming over the counter instant medicines is routine to our everyday lifestyle. Rather than being driven by the Covid-19, one trend we continue to see and experience is how do we regain control of our living, while being safe.
If there was one thing I had to choose in terms of criticality on what I’d stock up, first- it would be food and medicines. Food, yes, we can make do by choosing various alternatives and frozen food options for months together. But what about medicines? We cannot afford to choose alternative pharma medicines, owing to their unique approved formulae and combinations during their making, correlating of the medical issue that is hoped to be addressed.
It pushed me to the point to think, like food, do we have any other alternatives for medicines, which are safer to use? What if someone at home had a bad flu or diarrhea or bouts of allergic reactions or even fever? What about pain management? Imagine, not being able to access pain-killers, then what? And on doing further research, I stumbled upon various home remedies that can be the answers to a lot of questions, but not all.
I realized that we have a natural herbal solutions within the comfort of our own backyard or community or street. But, yes, we do need help to recognize herbs, plants and use them in the right way. Being more of prepper myself, thanks to this pandemic, enforcing paranoia of scant and shortage, limiting social interaction, holding back travel, I knew I had to be prepared for my family and myself.
It is more crucial now to adopt more safety measures and remedies, due to the vulnerability this pandemic has exposed us to.
The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies– A review
One of the best guides I saw in recent times is “The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies” by Dr. Nicole Apelian, Ph.D who is a biologist, herbalist , survival skills instructor (with her experiences living with the Bushmen in the Kalahari desert, working as Ethnobotanist in Botswana). With the wealth of information on herbs that she gathered, she transformed her own life from being bedridden to being fully alive, from surviving to thriving.
In correlation to the years of knowledge and experience, Dr. Nicole gathered, everything she shares along with Claude Davis is simply priceless in the book- to make best use of the natural resources around us, which are forgotten or lost or overlooked around us.
In 2015, Dr. Nicole was among the first few women to be featured in the History Channel’s TV show ‘Alone’. She then went on to survive for 57 days straight alone in the wild with little more than the plants that she found there.
She believed that there are many more people who need to find their own remedy. And this led her to her life’s mission of sharing this knowledge about the power of plants with others, with this book.
The book comprises her 20–28 years of plant knowledge and her first-hand experiences of making her own poultices, tinctures, decoctions, salves, syrups, infused oils, and other herbal remedies.
In the book, you will discover the Forgotten Power of Plants and learn about Herbal Remedies
You’ll find 800+ beneficial plants and remedies in “The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies”. It includes recipes of tinctures, teas, decoctions, essential oils, syrups, salves, poultices, infusions and many other natural remedies that our grandparents used for centuries. What’s also special about this book is that it has between 2 and 4 high definition, color pictures for each plant and detailed identification guidelines to make sure you’ve got the right plant.
This book is easy to use for beginners, seasoned herbalists or generally people who have no experience with plants at all.
Few Herbal excerpts from the book – Learn what Herbal remedies can do for you!

“The painkilling plant” that grows in most backyards which helps in pain reduction.
In the book, you will learn how to extract the ‘lactucarium’ which directly acts on the central nervous system to lessen the pain feeling. The book has all the instructions, step by step, on how to use it and how to recognize plants as well, with high definition images and guidance.
“The plant(s) that help in stopping bleeding”
Dr. Nicole found two plants by personal experience which helped in stopping bleeding of her own wound she got, while gutting a fish (on day 42, of the Alone show). Yarrow which stopped the bleeding, in combination with Usnea which helped in arresting a possibility of an infection was used. In about 3 days, there was no sign of the wound. Thanks to Yarrow and Usnea plants!
What happens if you put salt in a Cabbage?
The book has interesting information on what happens if you put salt into a Cabbage. The end result you’ll get by fermentation — called Sauerkraut — is full of probiotics that protect your digestive tract, regulating bowel movements and in many cases preventing both diarrhea and constipation.
What a delight it is to use natural herbs or vegetables to deal with chronic constipation issues instead of consuming strong chemical based medicines which eventually harm the delicate lining of the stomach, colon walls, leading to other problems.

What People Are Saying About The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies
What a Gem!
“I almost passed on buying this book due to the cost. I am so glad I have it on my shelf!! Haven’t you always wondered about those plants around the house? Especially the ones we call weeds? Well what a surprise to receive the book and open it up to see dozens of “weeds” in clear pictures with well written explanations about them. Healing is truly in the earth and all around us. The book explains each common plant, what it’s medicinal uses can be and then how to make them into safe and effective remedies. I can’t wait to get out there and harvest some that grow around my house and used to fall prey to the weed wacker!! The book and pages are copy paper size and well illustrated and very easy to read. I just love it!”

This is a GREAT book. for any survivalist, prepper or anyone tired of chemicals“[…]
If you are a prepper, survivalist, or off grider, this book is for you!!! It full of the old way (ALL NATURAL) home remedies. My wife and I have had need to try some, and although I was a little skeptical at first. I will say they work. Most of the ingredients can be found in the yard or on the roadside, and just need a little prep time. Also look at the Book, “The lost Ways” Both are worth having in you library.”
