In The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies you will discover a treasure trove of lost healing wisdom from Australia and New Zealand that has stood the test of time.
Throughout the last 200 years countless remedies have been passed down from generation to generation, preserving the wisdom and healing powers of our ancestors.
However, in the last few decades many of these life-saving remedies were lost to history.
People do not pass them on anymore, as we’ve become more and more dependent on synthetic pills.
Back when I was young, many free growing plants were seen as "food and medicine”. Now people call them weeds.
What I did in the last couple of years was to gather all the Australian and New Zealand remedies that are backed by modern science, and separate them from the bogus folk remedies.
I’ve selected only the remedies that can really help you.
Whether you need them to relieve pain, anxiety, break down fevers, disinfect wounds, sleep better, you name it, the remedy you need, might just be in this book, waiting in your backyard for you to pick it up.
I've spent 28 years delving into the forgotten knowledge of herbal healing, carefully gathering, and preserving these recipes for you.
Dr. Nicole Apelian is an herbalist, a mother, a survival skills instructor, and a biologist. She graduated with a degree in Biology from McGill University in Canada and has her Master’s degree in Ecology from the University of Oregon. She earned her Doctorate through Prescott College while working as an anthropologist and ethnobotanist in Botswana.
She has spent years living in nature with the San Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert, one of the last indigenous peoples who still live as hunter-gatherers. Developing strong relationships within the tribe helped Nicole learn many of the remedies and skills she practices and teaches today.
An unexpected diagnosis of MS in 2000 led Nicole to apply her research skills towards her own personal wellness. She focused on a healthy living strategy, including deep nature connection and gratitude practices. Through changes in her lifestyle, and using her own remedies, Nicole went from bedridden to being fully alive and from surviving to thriving.
And in 2015 she was among the first women to be selected for the History Channel’s TV show Alone. She then went on to survive for 57 days straight alone in the wild with little more than the plants that she found there.
She believes that there are many more people who need to find their own remedy. This became her life’s mission and the main reason for writing this book. In it she poured over 28 years of plant knowledge and her first-hand experiences of making her own poultices, tinctures, decoctions, salves, syrups, infused oils, and other herbal remedies.
Each plant has between 2 and 4 high quality color pictures and detailed identification instructions, so anybody can use it as a field guide in their backyard or whenever they go out foraging.
The second index of the book makes it easy to search by your specific problems, ailments or needs. These are just some of the reasons why this book is a near perfect guide for both beginners, seasoned herbalists or even people with no plant experience at all.
For example, this is one of the plants you’ll find in The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies. If it looks familiar that's because it grows in most backyards, and most people weed it out. But what they probably don’t know is that this plant contains a milky substance called lactucarium which acts directly on the central nervous system (CNS) to lessen the feeling of pain.
Inside the book you’ll find full instructions on how to turn it into an extract that you can use whenever you are in need.
I’ll also show you the common US driveway plant that has become the most expensive and sought out plant in Venezuela after the pharmacies ran dry.
I dressed my wound for 3 days with these and now you can barely see the scar anymore.

This one, that you’ll find on page 215, was largely used by our forefathers whenever they had a sore throat.
You’ll also find out the plant that boosts your energy and relieves foot pain when you wear it inside your shoes.
I bet you didn’t know you can turn bay leaves into a sedative if you burn them. So whenever you're stressed, burn some dry bay leaves in a safe dish. Close the room to trap the smoke and let it spread. Breathe deeply to feel the calming effects instantly!
If you’re like most modern people today, you probably have no idea just how many powerful natural remedies might be hiding in your own backyard. Usnea is one such remedy. It grows in long beard-like strands which is how it earned the nickname “Old Man’s Beard”. It’s the only lichen with a white core so if you see this, then you know you’ve got the right lichen.
Take a black radish and cut off the top so that you get a lid. Using a spoon, carve inside the radish, leaving about 1 inch on each side. Pour honey until the hole is full and add some grated horseradish to the honey inside. Place the lid back and let it extract overnight. Take a few tablespoons of syrup each day until your cough subsides. It works!
You’ll discover how to use it to tackle not only common colds but lung problems as well.
Also, taking in the steam from leaves that have been boiled in water will loosen up the airways and improve breathing.

Native Americans used it as a sweetener 200 years ago, and it tastes better than most greens I know.
What people don’t know is that this plant is also a strong diuretic effect that you can eat if you have poor blood circulation. If you’ve ever felt a tingling and numbness sensation in a limb in certain positions, you my try this plant people used for centuries as a blood vessel cleanser.
It is the same powdered vitamin that we gave our soldiers in WWII to pour over their wounds.
You probably already know cattails are edible. But few people know what is probably the most important thing about them. The jelly-like substance that grows between its leaves. It is very good for severe skin infections. And one of the best ointment for nail and foot fungus.
On a different note, this gel is the only part of the cattail that is widely considered to be inedible. It’s not poisonous…so why? Well, because it has a numbing effect on moist tissues and has been used as an anesthetic by the pioneers. When they were hit with a ravaging toothache, they would just go get their jar of cattail ooze and rub it around their gums. The pain would subside in minutes.
You don’t need much more than this for survival.
Gather a handful of rosemary sprigs and cover them with water inside a pot. Let everything boil on low heat for three hours. Cool off and then strain the rosemary-infused water. Pour it into a spray bottle and spray on your scalp and hair after you wash it. Massage it gently. That’s it, no need to rinse it off. Use it twice a week until you see visible results.
Deep sleep is the only time your body has to clear away damaged cells or repair them. That’s why probably people who sleep well tend to live longer.
What you really don't want is anything that causes inflammation entering your bloodstream as this leads to an inflammatory response that puts the immnune system into an unhealthy overdrive.
