Submitted by on Friday, 1 May 2009 Loading Add to favourites  No Comment

[amazon-product small=”1″]B00264GLCE[/amazon-product]If, like me, you’ve been enjoying the ‘Grow your own drugs‘ series with Ethnobotanist and gardener James Wong, you’ll be delighted to hear that his DVD is due out on May 4th.

I’m passionate about people taking responsibility for their health. There are so many natural, safe and effective remedies growing in our own back gardens and hedgerows.

For years I have treated our family with herbs and plants such as sage for sore throats, thyme to support the immune system and lemon balm to ensure a good nights sleep.

Food as medicine

In this series, James Wong has covered many natural remedies such as Syrup of figs for constipation, Goji berry and chicken soup for colds and flu, Hops pillow for insomnia  and an amazing looking Kiwi and papaya face mask!

The recipes are simple and his passionate and enthusiastic approach; inspired by his Malaysian Grandmother,  shines through as he talks you through the steps you need to take to treat every day minor ailments.

For everyone[amazon-product align=”right” small=”1″]0007307136[/amazon-product]

Whether you’re struggling with insomnia, the kids have eczema, or your partner is feeling under the weather, this series could have the answer.

You’ll learn how to make simple creams, salves and teas from the stuff growing in your window box, the local garden centre or in the hedgerows.

You’ll never look at flowers, fruit, vegetables, roots, trees and herbs in the same way again!

What about you? What is your favourite natural remedy?
