Introduction.
“An estimated 22 million Americans have asthma; 6.5 million are under 18”
(American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology)
Asthma is a serious complication of respiratory track which causes symptoms like chest congestion, coughing and difficulty in breathing.
“In America alone, asthma causes 4,000 deaths per year” (American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology)
Environmental pollution and too much exposure to harmful chemicals have significantly increased the susceptibility of people getting asthma. The death toll is expected rise even further. The cost of treatment of asthma is increasing. Accept it- No one likes going to a doctor. A single visit to a doctor costs too much.
“Americans spend, through direct and indirect expenses, a total of $19.7 million each year for the treatment of asthma” (American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology)
This book focuses on describing all the possible natural treatments of asthma. You don’t have to go to great lengths to cure asthma. Sometimes, simple things in your cupboard or refrigerator can serve as homemade remedies for asthma. Another natural way is to treat asthma with herbs. Herbs are being used for the treatment of several ailments for thousands of years. But, it’s an astounding fact that people consider them unsafe and difficult to use. Several experimentations have proved that herbs can cure several health conditions with virtually zero side effects. A simple change in life style can also help in curing asthma. Asthmatic attacks, in some cases, are triggered by eating certain food substances. So, having knowledge of what to eat and what to skip can actually decrease the frequency of asthmatic attacks.

Section one – Asthma – an overview

Asthma – What is Asthma?
Asthma is a common health condition related to an immune reaction taking place in the respiratory track. It’s a breathing disorder characterized by several symptoms like air way obstruction, difficulty in breathing, tightness of chest, coughing and wheezing. For most of the people asthma is not a big problem. But, in reality it can cause serious hindrance in performing routine activities. If it goes untreated, it can produce serious and life threatening conditions.

Asthma is an immune reaction triggered when the respiratory track is exposed to certain irritating stimuli. Human body has got a strong immune system which protects it from the harmful effects of foreign substances like chemicals, pollutants and organisms like bacteria and viruses. An important component of this immune system is “mast cells”. These cells respond to the presence of certain “antigens” and release several mediators of inflammation, in the presence of these antigens. For example, if these cells are exposed to the smoke of cigarette, they’ll release several chemicals which, in turn, will start a cascade of events leading to the development of symptoms of inflammation. These mediators cause spasm in the muscles of respiratory track, increase the production of mucus and make the respiration difficult.
Asthma is a combination of several environmental and genetic factors. Read more…

Introduction: The ancient diet
In the search for the best diet, a theory was presented in the 1980s. The theory reminded humans of their ancestors and the healthy lives they used to live. It blamed the development of modern diseases on our present imperfect diet which it considers a recent innovation as compared to what our bodies have been adapting to, for the major part of history. It says that if we eat the diet of our ancestors, we will return to that healthy state and the diseases of our present time will fade away into non-existence. This is the concept behind paleo diet.
Paleo diet, a modern adaptation of the supposed diet of our ancestors, is claimed to be the solution to the dietary hazards of our time. Can it really provide benefits over our present diet? Can it really be the solution of hazardous diseases that have plagued the modern society? This book discusses the advantages of paleo diet over modern diet relevant to the cure of diseases and assumes the position that indeed, paleo diet can be the solution for the major diseases of our age.

Introduction
Cardamoms are considered to be one of the most expensive and precious spices in the world today, taking their place along with saffron, cinnamon, cloves and vanilla.
So what is the magic about this fruit, which has made it the cause for sailors and soldiers going out to conquer lands where this plant was a native and grown extensively? Historians say that this plant is native to the Indian subcontinent, and that is why the tropical climate made this plant flourish all over Nepal, Bhutan, India, and surrounding areas.
You may find cardamom in the market, packaged in green seed pods, which have to be removed so that you can find aromatic green seeds inside. The shell is papery and is equally aromatic as are the seeds. Guatemala is a top producing country for cardamoms, which are either black or green in color. Both of them belong to the same family, but are two different species.
The green cardamoms which you enjoy sprinkling on your desserts , or just enjoy chewing on the seeds to freshen your breath are Elettaria, [this name has been taken from the traditional ancient name for cardamoms –elaichi- taken from the original Sanskrit ellaka] while the dark brown larger pods are Amomum. [This word has been derived from the Greek word amonos Or One without Reproach.]
Many researchers believe that this is the spice referred to in the New Testament, – a large portion of which was originally written in Greek – and called amomon. In the same way, a priceless spice tablet going back more than 3000 years, and found in recent excavations in Mycenae in ancient palatial archives, talks about this precious spice-amomon.
The great Greek botanist Theophrastus described this spice in 450 BCE, but he was not very certain about whether it originally came from Persia or from India. All he knew that it came from the mysterious lands of spices.
Surprisingly enough, this family belongs to the same family as the well-known herb- ginger. The family is Gingiferaceae , with different genus and species making up the members of this family. Read more…

The strength of this flavor is variable between the various types of oregano. Its most common use in modern day cooking can be seen in Italian-American foods which was popularized by the way it easily combines with spicy dishes, native to the south of Italy. It also has diverse uses in the cuisines of many other countries. Aside from this, oregano is rich in health imparting compounds that can boost your wellbeing both mentally and physically. Its health benefits were acknowledged by the Greeks and Austrians.
This books will acquaint you with the various health benefits of this amazing herb, whose leaves are as important for medicine as they are for tasty cooking. It will describe all the best ways to utilize oregano and include it in your routine diet. Since it can be grown easily in backyard gardens, this book will also teach you the basics of that.

Introduction
They tell a story about some extremely avid treasure hunters in the Caribbean about 20 years ago.
They managed to get a treasure map about a buried treasure box, buried 400 years ago by some shipwrecked sailors, and with dreams and visions of gold coins and jewels and other precious stones, they began digging at night in all secrecy. In two hours, they struck a box of wood, and they dragged it out. They opened it and plunged their hands in only to find the box full of peppercorns. Those peppercorns had grown moldy, underground, because they had not been dried in the sun. So there were treasure hunters with a moldy smelling sneeze, making powder, which once would have commanded a King’s ransom.

400 years ago, this treasure would have been priceless. Today, like other spices, it is universally available all over the globe and anybody considering pepper priceless, like his ancestors used to do is either living in a remote area with no access to a grocery store or mall or does not know about pepper.
So, for all those people want to know all about why this spice was considered to be the best ransom for kings and emperors, by Roman conquerors, here is a bit about its history.
The pepper is supposed to have originated in the South of India, especially in the Tamil Nadu region where it was called pippali. In ancient times, the ships loaded with peppercorns were collected from areas like Tuticorin, Chettinad , Madurai, the Malabar coast in Kerala and Kanya Kumari (Cape Comorin) and sent all over the globe. Of course, the Romans considered this to be a great addition to their cuisine, and even Pliny the great historian of ancient times made sure that he spoke awarded pepper in his gastronomical delicacies gathered for posterity.
He was dismayed with the fact that India drained the Roman Empire of 50 million sesterces every year with her different spices, of which pepper played a very prominent role. Black pepper, which is commonly called as Millagu in the local Tamil vernacular, was of course an integral part of all the cuisines of this area.
So they tell a tale about a Tamil cook having to feed a hungry British officer. So he mixed up pepper and water, and made mulligan tanni-literally pepper water, which has been immortalized as mulligatawny in Anglo-Indian cuisine.
Pepper was introduced to South Asia somewhere around about 4000 years ago, when it started to be cultivated extensively in Indonesia, Borneo, Java and Sumatra. The word pep comes from adding the missing zing or pepper to your spirit, so when pep talks are peppered with lots of moralizing and lecturing, they can spice up the proceedings really well.
Many of the wars in the medieval times in Europe were caused to gain complete power and access to the trade routes to India. That is why, the Dutch, the Portuguese, and the British kept asking their soldiers and navigators and explorers to look for easier ways to get access to shipping routes to places where they could get spices. It is said that when Vasco da Gama reached Calicuta, the traders asked him what he was looking for. “Christians and spices.” was his answer. He started up the trade route for Portugal to India, but that soon was taken over by the British. Read more…

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
If you are familiar with my magic series, you may have noticed that many of these books concentrate on just one magic herb or a magic spice, which is going to cure you. Naturally, the spices and herbs have been used since ancient times to help keep people healthy, beautiful, and also youthful.
Remember that not everybody in grandma’s time or even in the time of our ancestors could afford to go to the doctor. In fact, physicians were only restricted to people who could pay their exorbitant fees. The rest of the common crowd made do with the knowledge that had been passed down to them, by their ancestors, and also from the knowledge gained through experimenting on their own.
This is how so many natural remedies came into vogue, and so many of them proved to be successful. Many of them were quack remedies, but this was because many of the ingredients which were used here were rather astonishing, when seen by a 21st century perspective. Nevertheless, there was some particular reason, why these quack remedies proved to be successful, because they had some material in them, which was able to cure people.
Now let us take for example, the use of goose grease, for rubbing on the scalp to make the hair grow faster. Goose grease is nothing but fatty oil. It moisturized the scalp. You could get the same results by rubbing in sheep fat.
So if our ancestors did not have one thing, they made do with something approximating that item, in their opinion. So one had to use goose grease and passed on this knowledge to his descendants, the coming generations began to believe that yes, this was the product, which would make your hair grow long, lustrous, and healthy. It would also keep your scalp dandruff free.
Now, what was the reason why so many people in ancient times kept healthy, even though they lived in unhygienic surroundings? Firstly, they had a strong constitution, and did not coddle themselves. They knew the value of the sun and the fresh air, and they stayed out as much as they could. They just came home to rest, eat, and possibly recuperate, if they suffered from some ailment or from injuries.
Also, they were very particular about their diet. They enjoyed plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. They also drank fresh milk in large quantities whenever they could, as well as ate milk products like butter, butter, milk, cheese, and cottage cheese as often as they could, and when they could afford it.
The wealth of a tribe depended on that the amount of cows and goats they had. Other livestock was also very precious, but these came paramount. Whenever people of one tribe were attacked by people of other tribes, the cry went up “cows, pigs, horses, goats and sheep first, children second.” The young children along with the animals were hidden away with the elders, who led the adults of the tribe do the fighting. This fighting was done, sometimes to the death, by the men and women of the tribe. The elders, who were unable to fight, were considered to be the people who would help the children survive, with knowledge about their ancient heritage.
This was the time when herbal lore was passed down to the generations from the elders of the tribe to the young next-generation and the youngest generation. Read more…
