mostly just talks about apple cider vinegar. which is great, but he doesnt go into depth with anything else.
though he mentions people of vermont eating leaves from trees, i wasnt able to hear or otherwise confirm this anywhere else. anyone know anything about this? i was interested in this but he only spent a sentence or maybe two on it.
its outdated, but not a bad read by any means ( )

From book: Folk medicine reaches very far back in time. Nature opened the first drugstore. Primitive man and animals depend on preventive use of its stock of plants and herbs to avoid disease and to maintain health and vigor. Because man and the animals were constantly on the move, Nature's drugstore had branches everywhere. Wherever in the world you were sick, you would find in the fields its medicines to cure you, its material for curative herbal teas and ointments
