     Recently, I received a complimentary copy of The Essential Guide to Home Herbal Remedies by Melaine Wenzel through Robert Rose, Inc.

     I have been having a wonderful time reading and browsing through this comprehensive guide that features more than 125 conditions from coughs, sneezes and sore throats to sunburns. There are how-to's on making tinctures, teas, oil infusions, herbal baths and more. Besides the how-to's, you will learn a bit of history, where to find the best quality ingredients, what utensils you need in a natural pharmacy, how-to do aromatherapy and one of my favorite chapters features, the medicinal plants.

     There are 81 full colored photographs of medicinal plants featured in the chapter called "Plant Portraits from A - Z." In the plant profiles you learn the name(English and Botanical), where it grows, what it looks like, which parts are used, how to use it, what scientist think of it and caution.

     This is a impressive home herbal guide to have in your home and it has something for all ages: birth, pregnancy, women issues, teens, men issues and more.

1. Describe your book to us, what should readers expect?

     It is so simple to produce natural remedies yourself and it makes so much fun. It is written and organized for all ages and stages of life. This book is an invaluable guide to the centuries-old traditions of herbal medicine.

The reader is taken by the hand, like a friend, and every step of home herbal remedies will be explained to them.

In a simple way, after a short preface and the history of the remedial plants, I lead the reader immediately to the recipes offering a comprehensive overview about the most important remedial plants with tips and tricks from my practice later on.

  1. When did your passion for homeopathy originate?

     Naturopathy is a family tradition. This passion was passed on by my great-grandmother, then through my father, then to me. So, I never really had to ask myself what I would have liked to do later. For me, no other profession would have been a possibility. Nor would I want it to be.

  1. What did you enjoy most about writing your book?
     Transmitting an ancient remedial knowledge to other people is a great feeling. I became aware of this during the typing of this response and I enjoyed this feeling more than anything.

  1. What were the biggest challenges you faced in writing the book?
      The time management was a real challenge. Sometimes it was really difficult to find the time outside practice, family and children to write a book, but it was absolutely worthwhile.

  1. Tell us three things about yourself that would surprise your readers.

     Although I spend a lot of time outdoors, also enjoying this very much, I am a town person. Even when everything centers around health in my professional life, sometimes I also afford timeouts, enjoying junk food like crisps and chips.

  1. Are you working on anything new now or in the near future?

     Oh yes, my book “Slim with Herbs” has just come out. It is about how to lose weight effectively, using the slim potential of the nature beside.
