Edible and Medicinal Plants

Edible and Medicinal Plants

In any severe economic depression/collapse, or during any period of societal upheaval, store-bought medicines will quickly disappear. There are alternatives, however, for many of the store-bought medicines. Nature provides us with an abundance of medicinal plants and herbs. If you know them and know their uses, your family will be healthier, and you can provide a service to your friends and neighbors.

Store-bought medicines are derived, in most instances, from natural sources. Why not go straight to the source?

There are many books available concerning both edible and medicinal herbs. I will list a few for you. These books both identify the plant and give its uses.

I live in the mountains of Montana, so I have a copy of:

Edible and Medicinal Plants

Edible and Medicinal Plants of the Rockies by Linda Kershaw.

I find it to be an excellent resource for plants I can find in my area.

Another good book for those in the West is:

Edible and Medicinal Plants

Foraging the Rocky Mountains: Finding, Identifying, And Preparing Edible Wild Foods In The Rockies by Liz Brown Morgan

If you live in Eastern or Central North America, there is:

Edible and Medicinal Plants

Peterson Field Guide to Medicinal Plants and Herbs of Eastern and Central North America, for medicinal plants and herbs.

For edible plants in the East and Central US, there is:

Edible and Medicinal Plants

A Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants: Eastern and Central North America

All of these books are available at Amazon, through Barnes and Noble, or could be ordered through your local bookstore.
