5.0 out of 5 stars Re Grow your own drugs by James Wong 28 Jun 2009
What a fantastic dvd! James makes it fun as well as being informative. Wish i could meet him and learn all he knows! So nice to have alternatives to chemical medicines. Such a shame that most of us have lost the know how to heal ourselves. Go James!!
The only thing I was disappointed in was the number of recipes. Wish there had been more for the cost of it... but thats also because i enjoyed it so much that it left me wanting for more!

This series shows how we can treat everyday ailments using remedies based on freely available plants and remedies. It's extremely accessible and shows exactly how to prepare home treatments, often at a fraction of the cost of commercial lotions and creams. (There's no grow-your-own recreational drugs involved! This is all strictly medicinal).
The are six episodes of 30 minutes each, with a different focus each time; trees, herbs, flowers, vegetables, roots and fruit. Each programme follows the same pattern of explaining how many medicines have always been developed from the natural world, and how we can extract the important active ingrediants from many plants to make our own remedies.
James Wong is a cheery and engaging presenter who also happens to be a qualified botanist. He makes the creams and lotions in his own kitchen, often with a member of the public to help him, so you're encouraged to dive in and have a go yourself.
None of the recepies is hard to follow although quite a few use some specialist ingrediants which you'll need to get from health food stores or a pharmacy. Some of the lotions take quite a long time to prepare, too, so you may need to make them several weeks in advance. And not all of them smell great!
Over the course of the series, James suggests remedies to help with insommnia, acne, smelly feet, sore throats, eczema, muscle aches and pains, lice, varicose veins -- even improving memory. Each programme shows actual sufferers trying a remedy. They don't always work, but the results are very impressive and should encourage anyone with a long-term problem to have a go (following the medical guidelines, of course).
