A cookbook with healing foods and natural medicines, and some words about why our food is failing us and our "medicine" is not keeping us healthy.

This is a book about nature-based routes to good health, preferably the least expensive routes and always favoring the do-it-yourself route over the store-bought route. It emphasizes good food over medicine, and natural medicines over synthetic. There are many recipes and instructions on creating the good food to get or stay healthy. It includes sections on lacto-fermenting vegetables, brewing nourishing beverages including real ale and EM, ways to craft nourishing foods, some simple home kitchen "tips", advice on how to alkalize your body by incorporating into your food the minerals found in the environment around us and suggestions on how to make grain products like bread that are once again the "staff of life".

This is also partly a cookbook that does not agree with what the food and drug industry calls food and medicine. Food should come in its natural state from the ground, not from a science lab, and medicine should come from food, herbs, vitamins and minerals and not from artificial chemicals that suppress symptoms while the body continues to sicken.

If you produce your own food and medicine you don't have to trust providers whose primary goal is to make a profit for themselves, not your well-being. This book is heavily weighted in favor of what is free or inexpensive, because the less you have to spend on food and medicine, the less you are controlled by the financial system and the freer you are to live your own life.
Eating dirt may sound strange, but edible clays are made of the full-array minerals that are lacking in most of our food that is grown on depleted soils. Most of the minerals you buy as supplements are dug from the ground. Learn how to harvest and make  mineral supplements yourself from the soil. Phytic acid in grains can deplete the body of minerals, but it is also a nutrient in itself and helps protect against cancer, dementia, anemia and diabetes and is a source of inositol, a basic ingredient in the membrane of cells. Learn how to use grains to get the benefit of phytic acid without the detrimental effects.


It includes information about using the animal fats that are necessary for growth, reproduction and brain function. It explains how to harvest wild yeast for home brewing and baking and how to make kombucha, wine and fermented soda pop with natural ingredients. This is not a diet book but it does include a section on how to lose weight and get down to a size that is healthy for you. It touches on some of the newer theories about disease including the terrain theory of disease and pleiomorphism. There is a section on a wide variety of home remedies taken from anecdotes from people who said they worked for them and other folk cures that have been passed down for generations. There is considerable information on using full-array minerals to restore health because the author believes that adding minerals to the diet is one of the most important, and often one of the most overlooked, aspects of restoring or maintaining good health.

There are some tips for living a healthy lifestyle frugally that you can use now to save expenses on groceries, and some ideas on skills you can learn that could help you live through a natural disaster or famine in the future. There is a section on making chocolate products at home with simple, basic recipes that are inexpensive, easy to make and do not have all the chemical processing in them that commercial chocolate products do. There is a section on cosmetics that can be made with natural ingredients.
