Introduction
Basil has long been known as a valuable herb through the ages, when it was used to flavor foods. But this herb has also been a valuable an integral part of ancient alternative medicine. More than 4000 years ago, one of the greatest of ancient doctors Charaka wrote in his compendium that the juice from the leaves of the sacred basil mixed with honey taken three times a day could cure patients suffering from whooping cough and chest ailments.
That was the time when people relied on natural cures, and their own inmate good health to keep healthy and live long. I am proud to present this book to you, about one of the most useful herbs available to mankind today, of which the significant benefits have been written in ancient books of the East.

Oscimum sanctum is the scientific name given to the sacred basil. What is the difference between cooking basil and sacred basil? Well, to tell you very frankly, most of the cooks in the East prefer to use the plant, which has purplish colored leaves, in their food, just before serving. They call that the cooking basil. On the other hand, the sacred basil has smaller and greener leaves, more pungent in odor and in taste.
One rule passed down from the ancients is that milk and Basil do not mix. So when you are getting rid of a cough and cold, you make up a mixture of one teaspoonful each of honey and dried ginger, eight black peppercorns, and 5 to 10 basil leaves and boil them in water. Drink them down twice a day, and there goes your cold. But if you are boiling these ingredients in milk, leave the basil leaves out.
Sacred basil has a religious and mythological significance coming down the ages, both in the East and in the West. The Greek Eastern Orthodox church used basil in traditional rituals and the women of the house used to sprinkle sacred basil on the threshold of their houses on St. Basil’s day celebrated on 1 January in order to usher in a new and fruitful prosperous new year.

Introduction
I remember my father recounting a traditional and ancient Persian poem to me, which he had learned when his grandmother was busy cooking in the kitchen. She was just following ancient traditions, when women from the Mogul times – 14th-century – sang this song for fun in the kitchen, while cooking and amusing their kids at the same time.
The translation from the vernacular goes something like this –
Clove and cardamom – good pals they
Went for a forbidden swim for kicks.
And soon we heard Clove yelling.
“Golly, cardamom has gone for a six ”.
¬ and so on, in more hilarious verses, about how clove would and could not bother to drag the drowning cardamom out of the water, because he would get wet, catch a cold, his momma had told him not to go swimming, and so on! Until cardamom came out of the water and both went home.
Home, meaning the tummy of a gourmet who would appreciate the presence of cloves and cardamom in his delicately seasoned dish.
The Association of cloves and cardamoms have been a part of the lives of spices in the East. Where you put in a couple of ground cloves, you may be asked whether you want to add some more cardamoms in, too. Most often, you say yes, because after all that is going to increase the taste quotient. Cloves also go well with cinnamon, star anise, basil and pepper.

Nevertheless, this book is going to tell you all about the magic of cloves, which has been considered to be one of the most precious spices treasured down the centuries by the West. Wars were fought for cardamoms, cinnamon, pepper and cloves. Trade routes to the Indies, and to the East were jealously guarded by adventurous traders in the West.
Cloves first originated in Indonesia from where traders took them all over the world, in ancient times. In fact, 3000 years ago, a Chinese emperor asked his courtiers to chew ding xiang in order to keep their breath fresh, when they came into his presence.
Apart from its use in medicine, it was, and is also used extensively to add taste, sweetness, and warmth to a dish.
Archaeologists have found traces of cloves in archaeological excavations going back to 1721 BC in Syria. So this shows how long this great and precious spice has been associated with mankind. Read more…

Introduction

The moment you hear the word “honey”, you immediately visualize something tasty, sweet, and healthy. If you consider it being nature’s best and most excellent tonic, it is not going to be an exaggeration. That is the reason why newborn babies in the East are fed honey, the moment they enter the world and are bathed, before they are given to their proud moms for their first feed. That is because this is a predigested food, and it is easy to digest, is nutritious, and is health giving. And the best thing about Honey is that you may keep it for a long while, and it is not going to spoil.
In fact, archaeologists found vestiges of preserved honey in 2000 year old earthenware pots, from excavated sites. A major part of the honey may have been absorbed into the earthenware with the passage of time, but there was still some left over from those days millenniums ago, when people were preserving honey and putting them into usage.
As far as the natural and curative properties of honey goes, the fact is indisputable that this product has been used as a cure-all for diseases for centuries in Mesopotamian, Russian, Native American, Aztec, South American, Indian, Chinese, Egyptian, Greek and other ancient medical sciences. In fact, ask any wise man or shaman or herbalist who is well versed in ancient herbal lore about the importance of honey in making up his medicines. And he is going to nod his head widely, and praise it and the person who discovered it, and its natural curative properties.
Did you know that during the American Civil War and during WW1, when doctors ran out of medicine, they asked people or the army suppliers to supply them with honey? This was then placed on the open wounds, so that the infection could be cured or prevented. It is strange to see that the West has forgotten the use of honey as a natural healer.
This book is going to tell you all about the use of honey and its benefits in curing various ailments. The author is going to try her best to use commonly obtained ingredients easily available in your nearby market, garden or kitchen itself. Remember that if any remedy calls for warming up the medicine before use, do not heat honey to boiling point. This destroys all its curative properties. Just warm it mildly, for a couple of seconds, and that is going to be enough for the honey’s power to incorporate it in the ingredients to make Powerful Heal All.
Also, you may find that some of the remedies and recipes ask you to take some precautions when you are eating a medicine made up of honey. This can be as simple as not eating spicy and fatty food. You may be also asked not to eat meat.
Honey is without a doubt the best guardian of your health naturally. Ask all those people who have been using honey as a part of their natural diet every day. So if you suffer from any sort of disease, and want to look at the best way in which you can cure it naturally, all you have to do is browse through this book and find how honey is going to protect your health right now.

Introduction – Knowing More about Carrots
If some wise man had not discovered carrots, more than 3000 BC, you would not see that wascally wabbit otherwise known as Bugs Bunny, chewing on a carrot today. The combination of rabbits and carrots is about as taken for granted as is ham and eggs, and salt and pepper.
Carrots were grown in China and in Afghanistan more than 1100 years ago. China is of course the largest grower and exporter of carrots in the world today. The different varieties are yellow, purple, white and red, even though we are so used to seeing orange carrots peeping out of the mouth of Bugs as Doc stalks him .

If the carrot was white or yellowish in color, we would think he was munching a horseradish…
Carrots belong to the same family, as other herbs like Parsley, cumin, dill and fennel. In fact, in most countries, the carrot greens are not discarded, but they are dried and used as herbs in cooking. So the next time you decide to harvest carrots, you do not throw away the tops. Instead, dry them, and try them out as dried herbs sprinkled on your soups.
77% of the carrot taproot is made up of Beta carotene. Apart from that, It Is Rich in Vitamin A.
Are carrots really good for eyesight? When I heard a friend talking to her child to eat more carrots, because that would improve his eyesight, I thought that was a really good psychological ploy to get him to eat vegetables. This has a basis on a historical fact, where the British use this psychological ploy as propaganda. Carrots were not rationed during the second world war. British technology had discovered nighttime radar, which allowed the RAF pilots to see enemy planes in the dark. So, they could attack the enemy planes.
The British propaganda machine made up a story, that it was the increased use of carrots in the pilots’ diet, which improved their vision, including night vision. This was accepted by the Germans, who already had some ancient traditional beliefs, saying that carrots improved eyesight. And so we children, including Dennis the Menace have to eat carrots whether we like them or not since that is what parents believe. Read more…

Introduction – Knowing More about Onions
Is there really Magic in onions, you may say, because according to you, onions are those sharp and pungent smelling, vegetables, which you normally do not allow within smelling distance of your nose and kitchen?
It is possible that you have been brought up with a feeling that onion and garlic – those odoriferous pungent smelling herbs are not acceptable in select circles. Did you know that the United States is the third-largest producer of onions in the world – after China and India, and followed by Egypt, Iran and Turkey.
But then there was a time when onions grew – and still grow – wild all over the lands of the USA and Canada. The Native Americans enjoyed wild onions and the Pilgrim fathers planted the onion plant first and foremost, before corn, on American soil in 1658. That was because they knew a freshly pulled out onion from their garden added this bit of piquancy to their meals.
The onions eaten by men more than 5000 years ago, according to archaeological findings may have been wild onions, but 3000 years ago, Egyptians were writing about cultivated onions and the important part this healing herb played in their food.

Egyptian workers building Khufu’s pyramids ate these onions along with horse radishes in copious quantities 3000 years ago. [Incidentally, they were not slaves. They were free Egyptians. A majority of them were farmers who were asked by Khufu and afterwards Ramses, Soser and other pharaohs to help build pyramids, during the seasons when the Nile was not in flood to help cultivate their fields. So instead of sitting idly in their fields, they glorified in taking part in the building of monuments, which would magnify the pride of Egypt, and their Pharaohs throughout the world.
There were no slave drivers with whips and lashes to make them sweat, whatever Mr. Cecil DeMille may want us to think. The diet of these farmers /pyramid workers was onions with herbs and horse radishes, bread made up of freshly ground corn and beer. They did not mind spending a part of their year building pyramids for their Kings who appreciated their hard work by allowing them grain from the nation’s granaries.]
These Egyptians knew all about the value of onions, and worshiped them as a symbol of eternal life in many circles. Ancient Egyptians had onions placed on their eyes, before embalming or mummifying and burial, so that they could enter the circle of eternal life.
With daily portions of Onions, salt and herbs Roman soldiers were happy!
Roman soldiers also included onions in their diet, especially in the evenings, when they ate onions with red cayenne peppers and the salt they got as salary for the day’s work.
In medieval times, onions were held to be so precious in many parts of the world, that landlords demanded onions as rent in lieu of coin from their tenants. Read more..add-to-cart-click-here

Introduction – Knowing More about Radishes
I was once being shown around the organic farm of a friend of mine, and I noticed him giving me rather funny looks. “You have never been around an organic farm before, have you? Or it is possible that you have not lived in this area, have you.” Naturally, I had to ask him what made him say that, because I was used to going around organic farms, once being an organic gardener myself. He said that any native of that particular area would immediately pounce upon a radish growing in the fields, and pull it out – without waiting for an invitation from the owner – dip it into the nearest water source, and sink his teeth into it.
When in Rome do as the Romans do. I did so. And thus I enjoyed the crisp natural sweetish taste of this taproot, Raphanus sativus, which has been the mainstay of so many civilizations since prehistoric times.
The Romans could not do without the radish. In fact, it was eaten raw, cooked, boiled, made into salads, and not only the taproot, but even the leaves were finished by those people who enjoyed good food.
The ancient Greeks and Romans used to make a paste of radish and onions with dried fish and eat it with every meal. In fact Apicius has spoken about radishes, best eaten with pepper in “his Art Of Cooking in Imperial Rome.” So I would not be surprised if the ubiquitous fish sauce, used to liquefy and spice dishes, and known as garum was not also added to dishes with another sharp flavoring agent – radish.
One is grateful that radishes are available all over the world, but whether people use them for their own benefit as much as they should, is debatable. That is because many people think that radishes like onions and garlic have a distinctive odor. That is why, at parties or at get-togethers, they are just served as salad helpings, accompanied with onion slices and tomatoes. Read more…add-to-cart-click-here

Introduction
In volume 5 of Grandma’s natural remedies, with herbal lore and ancient recipes, you are going to get an excellent critique mixture of the knowledge of the ages, brought around to us through papyri , books and trial and error experiments done by the ancients. The word of mouth results, have been the product of years of experimentation done millenniums ago.
When did grandma become the epitome of wisdom and experience? Well, we should go back millenniums, when it was the job of the oldest generation to take care of the youngest generation, while the adults generation in between went out to collect food, water and other basic necessities necessary for survival.
The job of raising and training the children was left to those people who were most experienced. It is possibly this reason why the oldest and the youngest generations still find that they are more compatible and comfortable with each other, due to natural preference, instinctive selection and human psychological and social behavior.
So the children of the tribe, group, gathering, and city were put in charge of the elders, who used to talk to them about their ancient traditions, talk to them by their own grandparents. The rules and regulations of living in society and getting to know one’s own place in the hierarchy of a tribe was thus transmitted from generation to generation through these elders.
Grandpa trained the kids with tribal knowledge and physical exercise. Grandma was in charge of their overall emotional, spiritual and physical well-being. She was responsible for their health, well-being, food and other essential things necessary to keep children healthy and well-balanced members of the family and later on the tribe.

…and that caring instinct still is present…
That is why the matriarch – mother – was given the job of passing on the herbal knowledge to the girls in the family, preparing them to be future matriarchs taking care of their own families, as years went by. The boys were trained into becoming warriors, teachers, farmers, food gatherers or in other professions by the males of the tribe.
So the lines were demarcated out very clearly in well-regulated times since ancient days. The house, home and hearth and other duties pertaining to a domestic nature was under the jurisdiction of the females. The land, the preservation, cultivation and protection of the area around it was under the jurisdiction of the males.
So it was the man’s prerogative to be the hunter and the warrior, to feed and protect his family and tribe. Read more..
