ECOLOGY / ALTERNATIVE HEALTH ""I love this book. Brilliant and unique, Tim Scott's new book is about to rock the world of plant enthusiasts. Written for the medical professional, lay person, gardener, botanist, and biologist, it's for everyone who loves and worships at the roots of the green world. Invasive Plant Medicine provides a refreshing new theology of 'invasives,' or 'messenger' plants as they are so aptly termed by the author. Tim Scott goes deep beneath the surface, where thought, practicality, and poetry combine to create a dynamic new exploration of common plant medicine. Poetic, wise, visionary, and practical, this is my new favorite book about plants."" --Rosemary Gladstar, herbalist and founder of United Plant Savers Most of the invasive plant species under attack for disruption of local ecosystems in the United States are from Asia, where they play an important role in traditional healing. In opposition to the loud chorus of those clamoring for the eradication of all these plants that, to the casual observer, appear to be a threat to native flora, Timothy Scott shows how these opportunistic plants are restoring health to Earth's ecosystems. Far less a threat to the environment than the cocktails of toxic pesticides used to control them, these invasive plants perform an essential ecological function that serves to heal both the land on which they grow and the human beings who live upon it. These plants remove toxic residues in the soil, providing detoxification properties that can help heal individuals. Invasive Plant Medicine demonstrates how these ""invasives"" restore natural balance and biodiversity to the environment and examines the powerful healing properties offered by 24 of the most common invasive plants growing in North America and Europe. Each plant examined includes a detailed description of its physiological actions and uses in traditional healing practices; tips on harvesting, preparation, and dosage; contraindications; and possible side effects. This is the first book to explore invasive plants not only for their profound medical benefits but also with a deep ecological perspective that reveals how plant intelligence allows them to flourish wherever they grow. TIMOTHY LEE SCOTT is an acupuncturist and herbalist with a master's degree in traditional Chinese medicine. He runs a private practice in Vermont and gives workshops on Chinese herbalism, native medicinal plant cultivation, and the benefits of invasive plants.
