The hot topic these days is foods that do more than just nourish your body. Antioxidants, prebiotics, probiotics- all are in the news. Through the ages, certain foods and herbs have been promoted to new mothers to increase their milk supplies. These foods and herbs, called galactogogues, likely increase milk production by increasing prolactin or oxytocin to initiate the breastmilk letdown reflex and aid in breastmilk ejection. Pharmacist Frank Nice and his wife, Myung Hee, have pulled together over 200 recipes featuring major and minor galactogogues in this cookbook. Dr. Nice includes dosage, uses, and cautions about each of the galactogogues. They have included many old family favorites passed down from their Polish and Korean ancestors. Some recipes include unusual ingredients - Stinging Nettle Pesto with Ravioli, Corn Bread with Red Clover Blossoms, Hot Chocolate Mousse with Marshmallow Root Fluff. Others have ingredients that are quite common - Pineapple Raisin Oat Bran Muffin, Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Garlic and Olive Oil, Avocado Shrimp Salad, Chicken Tacos. All have been taste-tested and confirmed to be delicious! If you are a new mom struggling with milk supply or if you just want to insure that your milk supply stays strong, try some of these recipes. Even if you aren't breastfeeding, the recipes in this cookbook are worth trying!

Acne is a common skin condition that causes whiteheads, blackheads, cystitis, or seborrhea. Acne is most common in people during the pubescent years but it can happen to anyone, at any age. The most common cause of acne appears to be genetic, but some environmental factors and life choices can also aggravate acne. Acne can appear in different ways on different people. Common acne can appear as red, scaly skin known as seborrhea, as black or white-headed pustules, and as inflamed, red bumps that may produce scarring. There are many natural treatments & preventatives you can try to help reduce or even stop your acne outbreaks. Acne is very specific to each individual so you should start by considering your lifestyle and potential acne triggers. Each person may have one or more triggers that must be corrected before the acne outbreaks will stop. You may be able to combat the severity of acne outbreaks by making some simple lifestyle changes. Once you have located the potential triggers of outbreaks for your personal situation, you will have a better idea of how to treat and even prevent future outbreaks. Remember, each person will have a slightly different situation including triggers, skin type, environment, and genetic history. You should experiment to find the perfect combination of lifestyle change and treatments for you! Natural care is about more than just using nature to solve a problem. Natural care is about CUSTOMIZING nature to solve your personal problem!

The Sage of Seville

Ibn Zuhr, His Time, and His Medical Legacy

Ibn Zuhr (or Avenzoar) of twelfth-century Seville was the most important physician of Muslim Spain. His family boasted six generations of physicians, and also included midwives, jurists, poets, and viziers. His Kitab al-taysir, a compendium of therapeutics, was translated into Latin and Hebrew; its Latin version, Liber Teisir, served as a companion book to the Colliget, the Latin translation of Kitab al-kulliyat, a largely theoretical book of the philosopher-physician Ibn Rushd (Averroes). The rabbi-physician Maimonides quoted extensively from Ibn Zuhr and considered him "unique in his age and one of the great sages." But Ibn Zuhr was not just a keen observer of patients and a dispenser of remedies: buried within his generally dry narrative are candid recollections and views on a variety of subjects and of his society. And his medical recipes could be compared to current forms of alternative medicine. Together, his holistic approach to medicine and his spontaneous vignettes make him one of the most refreshing physicians of any age. This account of the life and legacy of Ibn Zuhr, the first of its kind, reveals the man and his world, his importance in his own times, and his relevance to our world today. Against a modern culture of often impersonal, bureaucratized, and costly health care, Ibn Zuhr's embodiment of the wisdom of the ages and his role as healer-priest can be an inspiration.
