PRAISE

‰ÛÏFew people know about the practice of Southern Folk Medicine. Heavily based on ancient Greek and European practices, melded with Native American, Christian, and African influences, this system offers us a uniquely American way to look at and positively influence the human body and relieve disease. Written in an easy-to-understand and autobiographical manner, this book will open your mind to a new way of understanding wellbeing, illness, and health.‰Û
‰ÛÓDavid Winston, RH (AHG)

‰ÛÏThis book is a treasure! It is at once charming to read and chock-full of plant wisdom. With the growing interest in scientific Western herbalism, ancient Ayurveda, and Traditional Chinese herbal medicine, with which the author is well acquainted, Light is able to remain true to her ancestral roots of Southern Appalachian herbal medicine. As such, it inspires our deeper appreciation for Southern Folk Medicine.‰Û

‰ÛÏSouthern Folk MedicineåÊcaptures a part of our herbal traditions that is little known, practiced by fewer yet, and at risk of being lost. Much more than an individual‰Ûªs personal journey or interpretation, it presents a history of the development of culture and medicine in the South, integrates this with its relevance to modern healthcare today, and is reflective of a living tradition whose evolution continues.‰Û
‰ÛÓRoy Upton, herbalist and president, American Herbal Pharmacopoeia
