Mistletoe and the Emerging Future of Integrative Oncology by Dr. Nasha Winters
New from Eco-Ag Conference speaker Dr. Nasha Winters! If you weren’t able to get your copy at the Eco-Ag Conference this past December, now’s your chance!
Mistletoe therapy has long been considered a viable treatment for cancer by the European medical community and is beginning to gain recognition in North America, as well.
The book was structured following the syllabus for a three-day practitioner training hosted by the Physicians’ Association for Anthroposophic Medicine (PAAM). The chapters highlight several of our key lectures in a condensed form. The book serves as an introductory summary of―not a replacement for―those intensive professional trainings. Learn more here!
Malabar Farm by Anneliese Abbott
Frequent readers and subscribers to Acres U.S.A. magazine and EcoFarmingDaily.com will recognize Anneliese Abbott’s name from her many informative articles.
Anneliese Abbott tells the story of Malabar Farm within the context of the wider histories of soil conservation and other environmental movements, especially the Ohio-based organization Friends of the Land. As one of the few surviving landmarks of this movement, which became an Ohio state park in 1976, Malabar Farm provides an intriguing case study of how soil conservation began, how it was marginalized during the 1950s, and how it now continues to influence the modern idea of sustainable agriculture.
