Herbal Scraps
    During my research for my medicinal book series I ran across many items on the non-medical uses of plants. At first I ignored them, then I began saving these scraps, and turned them into two books. When I found something that interested me I wrote a short section on it.

More Herbal Scraps
    I began this series of books by being interested only in medicinal plants. As the study progressed, I began a "scrap box." This grew into two books on many aspects of useful plants covering medicine, science and ethnobotany.

Ants, and Other Great Medicines
    I began my study of medicine in 1976 as a quest for the forgotten herbal remedies. As I worked my way through millions of pages of literature, I began to save odd notes. This book is a gathering of these notes. There are items that could be of value today, but most need the touch of modern science.

Healing with Water, Air and Light
    My real interest has been the use of medicinal herbs and I have tried to sum up all the knowledge in medical and scientific literature for the past three centuries. As I worked on my set of herb books, I found many studies that didn't fit, which I felt were important to those seeking healing. Healing With Water, Air and Light is an important contribution to a neglected area of healing.

A Strange World of Medicine
    This is the story of some anomalies and ideas found in the pages of medical literature. The ideas begin with the story of birth and end with death. They encompass religion --for the saints and prophets have been the subject of much speculation. Some famous men of history have been subjected to careful medical analysis in hopes of finding the key to their genius and their human mortality.

Electrical Healing and the Violet Ray
    I intended to write a short chapter on the violet ray in a book, but as I began to do research the story gradually snowballed. I wanted to tell the entire store of the evolution of medical electricity. Electricity was used to reduce weight, grow hair and remove hemorrhoids. In certain instances it restored the sight of nearly blind persons, healed desperate cases of rheumatoid arthritis and removed skin cancer.

Touching the Outer, Reaching the Inner
    This a study of therapies that have been used on the outer to bring about healing on the inner. A cat licks its bruised paw, a child rubs a sore ankle and a mother kisses an "ouwie." These are a few of the ways that men and animals react to areas that need the healing touch.

The Nutritional Sparks of Life
    We wish we had the answers that will provide us with excellent health, vitality and a youthful appearance throughout life. Nutrition is one of the steps toward this goal. Many nutrition books present information that looks like a tax return. I am not interested in numbers -—nobody pays attention to them. I'm interested in the history of and ideas that lead to the science of nutrition. I have tried to shed light on the dark corners of diet and nutrition.
