Bark medicine – The pharmacy of the bone judges, wood servants and midwives
The traditional folk medicine of the “Boalrichter” – the bone judges, the wood servants and the midwives tells about the old, manifold bark medicine, the uses of the barks of trees, bushes and roots.
The bark is the “skin” of the tree or shrub; in the past it was used for skin care as well as for injuries, inflammations or for digestion.
Birch bark was used to make a power potion, maple bark was the “old gout healer”, beech bark was used to heal wounds, and wild rose/oak and willow bark was used to make a decoction for small children to treat skin diseases.
The best-selling authoress Eunike Grahofer collects for decades this “wild medicine” and wrote for this already numerous books.
She tells of the old knowledge as well as the old stories, the connections, the optimal harvest times and the processing methods with the simplest ingredients.
The book contains many home remedies and cooking recipes that have proven themselves for centuries!
