A Modern Herbal: Plant-based Medicine for a Calmer, Healthier Life 

by Alys Fowler

 In this accessible and easy to use manual, horticultural expert Alys Fowler shows how to take control of your health by adopting a more natural lifestyle. Alys is a former Gardener's World presenter and a prominent horticultural journalist with her own column in the Guardian, and has an interest in the natural lifestyle.

For thousands of years, people who had no access to clinical medicine knew how to boost their well-being by using the ingredients they found in plants. Offering a fusion of botanical, practical, cultural and historical information, A Modern Herbal reveals how common herbs are the simple, cleansing way to better health and happiness.

With guides for how to use and grow over 100 herbs, you'll soon be heading into the garden, rather than opening the medicine cabinet. Our favourite remedies include how to use fennel for indigestion, camomile for anxiety and nettle for hayfever.
