The pioneer of herbal veterinary medicine has again thoroughly revised, updated and expanded her book on natural and organic cures and farming methods
With the growing interest in organic farming and increasing concern about the diet of farm animals, this completely updated edition of Juliette de Bairacli Levy’s pioneering book will be welcomed by all farmers and smallholders who would like to increase their knowledge of proven herbal treatments. This fascinating book is a valuable guide for farmers and the general public concerned about the overuse of nonnatural medicine, herbicides, and insecticides in farm management and animal husbandry.
The author, Juliette de Baïracli Levy, offers detailed directions for treating all farm animals with natural methods, while stating her evidence that “mechanized” farming methods have led to the demise of domesticated animals’ overall health.
She asserts that poor and inadequate natural habitat, unnatural feeding practices, and a reliance on medicine to fight individual symptoms of disease without addressing the whole animal have weakened farm animals’ innate disease-fighting ability. Her argument for a return to reliance on the natural and away from the synthetic and artificial rearing and feeding methods of farm animals becomes more urgent and relevant given the outbreaks of “mad cow disease” and other ailments caused by these practices.
This book, used in conjunction with proper consultation with a veterinarian, can help animal owners and farmers move back to natural and healthy farming practices. –Julia King Review ‘Every farmer should have this book for, used with common sense in combination with modern veterinary and farming methods, it could help us to avoid some of the mistakes stemming from unlimited use of chemical fertilisers, insecticides, antibiotics and the like.’
