  • HEAL LOCAL

    Most of us understand the value of eating and buying local. Taking back our food, goods and services from multinational corporations and sourcing them from small growers, producers, artisans and entrepreneurs benefits our families, our environment and our communities. Heal Local argues that "100-mile health care" can be equally valuable in terms of how we treat illness and injury and maintain wellness.

    This innovative guide demonstrates that by harnessing multifaceted whole plants, we can rely on homegrown or regionally produced herbs, rather than importing exotics and non-natives. Based on the small apothecary model, author Dawn Combs explains how to:

    • Maximize the benefits of homegrown first aid, from increased freshness, potency and effectiveness, to community resilience and local economic growth
    • Make home herbal health care less intimidating and more attainable, by focusing on 20 herbs to effectively treat most common injuries and ailments
    • Implement a local medicine culture safely and sustainably, while protecting and respecting wild plant populations

    Many herbals overwhelm their readers, presenting a list of hundreds of herbs, each with a different purpose. Heal Local empowers readers by showing that you don't need to know everything about every herb on the planet to create a complete home apothecary.

    Anyone can be self-sufficient with their wellness, regardless of their previous knowledge, experience or available space.

  • THE HEAL YOUR GUT COOKBOOK

    With more than two hundred straightforward, nutrient-dense, and appealing recipes, The Heal Your Gut Cookbook was created by GAPS Diet experts Hilary Boynton and Mary G. Brackett to help heal your gut and to manage the illnesses that stem from it. Developed by pioneering British MD Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, who provides the book’s Foreword, Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) refers to disorders, including ADD/ADHD, autism, addictions, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder, stemming from or exacerbated by leaky gut and dysbiosis. GAPS also refers to chronic gut-related physical conditions, including celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes type one, and Crohn’s disease, as well as asthma, eczema, allergies, thyroid disorders, and more. An evolution of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, the GAPS Diet will appeal to followers of the Paleo Diet, who are still struggling for optimum health, as well as anyone interested in the health benefits of fermentation or the Weston A. Price approach to nutrition. In The Heal Your Gut Cookbook, readers will learn about the key cooking techniques and ingredients that form the backbone of the GAPS Diet: working with stocks and broths, soaking nuts and seeds, using coconut, and culturing raw dairy. The authors offer encouraging, real-life perspectives on the life-changing improvements to the health of their families by following this challenging, but powerful, diet. The GAPS Diet is designed to restore the balance between beneficial and pathogenic intestinal bacteria and seal the gut through the elimination of grains, processed foods, and refined sugars and the carefully sequenced reintroduction of nutrient-dense foods, including bone broths, raw cultured dairy, certain fermented vegetables, organic pastured eggs, organ meats, and more. The Heal Your Gut Cookbook is a must-have if you are following the GAPS Diet, considering the GAPS Diet, or simply looking to improve your digestive health and, by extension, your physical and mental well-being.

  • SMALL IS POSSIBLE

    In an era when incomprehensibly complex issues like Peak Oil and Climate Change dominate headlines, practical solutions at a local level can seem somehow inadequate.

    In response, Lyle Estill's Small Is Possible introduces us to "hometown security," with this chronicle of a community-powered response to resource depletion in a fickle global economy. True stories, springing from the soils of Chatham County, N.C., offer a positive counter balance to the bleakness of our age.

    This is the story of how one small southern U.S. town found actual solutions to actual problems. Unwilling to rely on government and wary of large corporations, these residents discovered it is possible for a community to feed itself, fuel itself, heal itself and govern itself.

    This book is filled with newspaper columns, blog entries, letters and essays that have appeared on the margins of small town economies. Tough subjects are handled with humor and finesse. Compelling stories of successful small businesses from the grocery co-op to the biodiesel co-op describe a town and its people on a genuine quest for sustainability.

    Everyone interested in sustainability, local economy, small business and whole foods will be inspired by the success stories in this book.

  • CLOVER HERBAL BALM

    Mockingbird Meadows formulates their Clover Balm to soothe serious dry skin issues. Red Clover, the humble weed that’s at the center of this formula, has been known for centuries for its abilities to help heal symptoms of eczema+. It is especially good for childhood eczema, but the formula has quite a devoted following from both adults and children.

    Description
    Red clover is the main attraction of this formula. The addition of lanolin makes this balm heavier and greasier than the other balms the farm produces. Those qualities are just what is required to deliver the deep moisture needed to address a dry skin condition, such as eczema. Mockingbird Meadows has seen some improvement for various forms of psoriasis, as well. Try applying this gently scented balm before bedtime, when you will not need to be as active. If you can, add a covering of some sort to the affected area to help lock in the moisture.

  • WELL FAST HERBAL HONEY BOOSTER

    Promising a sweet way to feel better fast, this specially formulated product can be added to your local honey to boost your immune system before you get on that next airplane (or when everyone in the office is falling sick). + It features immune-boosting herbs, including elderberries, shiitake mushrooms, astragalus, and Echinacea.

    Description
    Well Fast Honey Booster with triphala is a nod to the centuries of tradition found in Eastern medicine. On its own, triphala can be bitter and hard to swallow, which is why it’s designed to be stirred into honey. Combining the appropriate powdered herbs with honey, which is antimicrobial, creates a healing and delicious treat that makes medicinal herbs more palatable for picky eaters and children. Herb-infused honey can then be drizzled on pancakes or ice cream, stirred into hot tea, or mixed into smoothies.
