Description

Interwoven with centuries-old herbal remedies, time-tested techniques, and women's wisdom handed down through the ages, this kaleidoscopic whole-health tapestry reveals a myriad of natural methods for achieving and maintaining good health and all-around happiness. At the heart of the narrative is a compilation of natural recipes for infusions, poultices, teas, and tinctures -- garnered by the young Svetlana while listening to her mother and "the girls" (other medical professionals like her mother) as they shared their bond of friendship and their tales of healing success while gathered for tea in the family's blossom-filled garden -- intertwined with her grandmother's fairy tales, family vignettes, legends, and herbal lore. Filled with easy-to-make, natural, healing recipes for common ailments and illnesses -- such as allergies, asthma, fatigue, headaches, insomnia, and respiratory problems -- this all-encompassing guide to wellness offers a holistic approach that intermingles alternative treatments with folklore, psychology, philosophy, and spirituality to foster optimal health and joyful living.
