Comments from readers:
I got the book today and got a chance to read a little, and the story about the man in mid-life crises made me smile. The colorful, glossy cover makes the book very inviting. The photos and illustrations are excellent. Easy to navigate and understand, useful tables. I would recommend it to others. Thanks very much for writing this very interesting book. It uses concrete examples which I find easy to relate to.

This is an interesting little book that explains the remedies from a unique practitioner’s perspective. What makes these descriptions different (and interesting) from a standard plant description is that they are written as if the plant was a personality. As an example, we’ll look at Impatiens, which, as its name suggests, is for the impatient person. "Hurry up. I can’t wait all day, you know. We all have families to go home to. You don’t seem to realize, but this has to be done right away." Then, from a person’s perspective after using the Impatiens remedy; "From now on, I will get less stressed about deadlines, as it is not doing my blood pressure any good. It is not the `be all and end all. I will sit back and enjoy my coffee while reading the paper." Marilyn Zink, Publisher, Herbal Collective
Excerpt from the book:
Elm - How on earth can I get everything done in such a short time? I don't think I can cope; in fact, it is all making me feel anxious and depressed. Company is coming tomorrow, and I need to tidy the whole house, do the shopping, prepare a menu and cook some meals in advance, get the bill payments up to date, and so it goes.
Ah, it is all too much. I just don't know where to start. I know if I sit down with a cup of tea and a drop some Elm in it, maybe things won't look so bad. To start things off I will make a list of what's to be done, and then I'll prioritize the list. I will get the kids to help with some of the housework, then if someone gets the groceries that will help. The rest I can do in no time. I don't know what I was thinking; the house does not need to be that perfect, just slightly neat and tidy. Nobody is going to do the white glove test for dust. Then this evening I can catch up with any other work that needs doing, like paying the bills. Sometimes I just panic, and I know deep down that I am capable of doing things
In the spring, the branches of the Elm tree have clusters of round reddish purple/ brown buds, which from a distance resemble delicious toffee apples. They later turn into leaves.
