Invasive plants not native to the United States are considered a nuisance, as well as a threat to the local ecosystem. However, Timothy Lee Scott presents an opposing viewpoint.
In his book, Invasive Plant Medicine: The Ecological Benefits and Healing Abilities of Invasives, Scott argues that these “invasive species,” most of them imported from Asia, efficiently remove toxins from the soil and help heal the land. They also have medicinal properties and have been used for centuries in traditional Asian medicine.
Scott’s book includes information on harvesting these widely available invasive plants, and how to prepare them for use. Readers will also learn which conditions these plants are typically prescribed for.Buy Now
