SOLD AS IS In the late 1800’s Mrs. Antonette Matteson authored what is now considered a rare American herbal classic. She believed in the "remedies from the vegetable world" and also was "convinced of the existence of intelligent spirit". Calling herself a trance and healing medium fit right into the style and atmosphere of her era and transfers right into our own. The experience of twenty years practice taught Mrs. Matteson that tonics act by influencing the digestive system and hence the whole system. She claimed the use of a bitter principle is absolutely essential to health and found in the majority of plants in the vegetable kingdom. Her example being that animals feed on these type of plants and if their food is restricted to a diet of insufficient bitter principles, they soon become weak and die. 1894 Comprising a description of many American and Foreign plants and their medical virtues; with the cause, cure, and prevention of disease: to which is added, an explanation of the hidden forces in nature; with a large number of valuable receipts - the experience of twenty years practice. This is the medicine of nature. Contents include: Materia Medica, Purgatives, Expectorants Demulcents Emollients & Pectoral, Diseases Their Cause & Cure, Diseases of Females, Useful Recipes, On Herbs & Their Application, Means to Promote & Retain Health, Hints in Emergencies, An Explanation of Some of the Secret Forces in Nature, etc.
