You will meet the lay healers, “curanderos,” who prescribe for the sick, visit the “botanicas” that sell hundreds of medicinal plant products, & learn all about the folk remedy tradition, incl. how: ginger can soothe an upset stomach; anise keeps colic under control; kalallo bush treats the common cold; & embauba works as an astringent on dry skin. Each botanical profile lists the scientific & common names, where the plant is grown & its physical characteristics, traditional uses, availability & dosages, & contraindications & special precautions.
