0 Rezensionen
In Kitchen Medicine the authors describe the wealth of healing and emergency remedies that sit unused and idle in the kitchen. Superb illustrations adorn a lively text. The ingredients are all easily found in the kitchen although in some cases they are exotic in origin (just think of tea, coffee and chocolate).

Über den Autor (2011)

Julie Bruton-Seal was born in Australia and grew up in Africa and other wild places, travelling with her parents, internationally renowned wildlife photographers and film-makers Jen and Des Bartlett. She took her degree in biology (Bsc magnum cum laude) at Queens University in Charlotte, N.C., and lived in Charlotte most of her life between 1975 and 1993, so is well-tuned to what works in the United States and which plants/products are available here. Julie was trained as a herbalist by Christopher Hobbs, a renowned California herbalist, acupuncturist and author.

Julie has exhibited her wildlife and botanical paintings in Africa, the UK and USA, and is a member of The Wildlife Art Society International. Her illustration work includes the book When Elephant Was King, travel brochures, t-shirts, logos and greeting cards. Julie's photographs have been published in books and magazines, including the National Geographic and Hedgerow Medicine. She has also worked with her parents on several films, including the National Geographic special Survivors of the Skeleton Coast, for which they won Emmy awards in 1993.

Julie is a member of The Society of Authors and co-authored Hedgerow Medicine (2008) and the cookbook Vegetarian Masterpieces (1988) with Carol Tracy. She contributes regularly to the journal The Herbalist, and to Triangle magazine.

Julie's interest in health led her to train in herbal medicine, iridology and energy medicine, and she runs a natural health practice in Norfolk, England. As a practicing herbalist, she grows and collects many of her own herbs, and makes her own essences. She also teaches workshops on herbal medicine making, and leads herb walks.

Matthew Seal has worked in the UK and South Africa as an in-house and freelance ditor and writer for books, magazines and newspapers.
