Dear Reader,

I steered my little Nissan rental car higher… deeper into Jamaica's John Crow Mountains. S-curves and Buy Healing Herbs Bookswitchbacks emerged suddenly out of the sheets of blinding rain.

As the storm finally began to clear, I spotted a cluster of tin-roofed houses and tiny shops. I had reached my destination: the home of Jamaica's last-living Maroon healer, Ivelyn Harris.

For centuries, the Maroons have been among the world's most skilled herbalists. With just the plants growing in their mountain home, their healers may have already conquered problems that still challenge modern medicine. For example, I'd heard stories that…

  • They use a single flowering weed to lower blood sugar, clear up stubborn rashes, ease an upset stomach and even relieve the pain of arthritis.
  • They grow a kind of grass in their gardens that clears up almost any fever. Tea made from this grass is even said to protect against yellow fever.
  • They discovered a beautiful yellow wildflower that lowers high blood pressure… and raises blood pressure that's too low.

I felt tremendous anticipation as I shook hands with this woman. She was the last repository of this ancient knowledge… and I hoped she’d have the time and energy to share it with me.

But Ivey caught me off guard. She told me she wanted to write a book. A book of herbal knowledge that everyone could use and benefit from.

My mind started racing. I've heard the Maroons have herbal remedies for headaches and backaches… menstrual and prostate problems… impotence… fevers… high blood pressure&heelip; colitis… even heart trouble. Practically every complaint you can name.

Ivey Harris was suddenly - unexpectedly - offering to put the world's most powerful herbal remedies into your hands…

Unique Healing Knowledge from a Disappearing Culture

Hi. I am Dr. Al Sears. I run a busy medical practice and research center in South Florida. My interest in

    Dr. Al Sears, MD
    Leader in Integrative Health and Pioneer of Anti-Aging Medicine

    Dr. Al Sears, MD, is a board-certified physician with over 20 years experience transforming the lives of over 20,000 patients in 23 countries. Dr. Sears:

    • Enjoys a worldwide readership and has appeared on more than 50 national radio programs, ABC News, CNN and ESPN.

    • Is the author of seven books and over 500 articles published in the fields of alternative medicine, anti-aging and nutritional supplementation.

    • Was awarded the first U.S. license to administer a groundbreaking DNA therapy that activates the gene that regulates telomerase. Recently mentioned in Newsweek, this enzyme helps control cell division and may hold the key to disease prevention and life extension.

    • Earned his medical degree from the University of South Florida in Tampa, Fla. He scored in the 99th percentile on his MCAT and graduated with honors in Internal Medicine, Neurology, Psychiatry and Physical Medicine.

natural medicine also led me to create a foundation that seeks out traditional healing methods.

It was my foundation work that brought me to Jamaica - just as it's taken me to the home of Ayurvedic medicine in India, the Amazon rainforest in Peru, the Pantanal of Brazil and other strongholds of natural healing.

But I'd never seen anything like this.

Ivey traces her family line directly back to Prince NaQuan, the first leader of the Maroon people. His daughter, Princess Nanny, was a legendary natural healer and is Jamaica's only national heroine.

For 500 years, their people - originally escaped slaves - have lived free high in Jamaica's mountains. And for all those years, they've lived off the land.

Maroon healers combined the herbal knowledge of their African ancestors with the healing arts of Jamaica's native Carib Indians - and added in their own experience. The result is a unique healing tradition that's kept the Maroon people remarkably healthy for centuries.

But the modern world is breaking down Maroon culture. Traditions are being pushed aside by the lure of money and city life. One of those traditions is the village healer. Ivey is now the last of her kind.

The Maroons' healing secrets balance at the brink of extinction. And it would be a terrible loss, because as I discovered, these remedies are real.


Tradition Backed by Solid Science

With Ivey offering so many remedies for so many problems, I wouldn't blame you for being a little skeptical.

But I've done some digging, and I'm amazed by how many Maroon remedies are backed by solid science.

Maroon healers didn't have modern labs 500 years ago. But they sure had a knack for picking the right plants for any given problem.

Take balsam, for instance.

For hundreds of years, Maroon healers used this herb to relieve the discomfort and duration of colds and flu. They couldn't have made a better choice. Balsam contains thymol - a natural oil that kills germs and viruses. Plus the leaves are high in vitamin C.

They use an herb called "tree of life" to relieve the discomfort of insect bites and stings. Animal studies show that tree of life relieves pain and soothes inflammation - exactly what would help with a bite or sting.

Vervain is a lovely purple flower Maroon healers use to ease coughs and colds. Recent research shows vervain contains a chemical - hispidulin - that opens up the lungs and calms wheezing.

Cerasee is a flowering vine Maroon healers use for several complaints - including skin problems. When I'm there in Jamaica, I make a cerasee tea as a detoxifying and purging daily tonic.

Modern researchers have discovered that cerasee interferes with an enzyme that's been linked to psoriasis. And it has antibacterial and anti-viral properties, too. 1 These traits make it an excellent choice for skin problems.

But that's not all. Maroon healers traditionally used cerasee for diabetes - although they didn't understand the causes or progression of the disease. Still, they made a good choice, because cerasee contains a compound that helps normalize blood sugar1 - a major problem for diabetics.

As I dug through the research on these herbs, I found that modern science backed up the Maroon healers in case after case. In fact, I haven't found a single instance where an herb is inappropriately used.

It's the most remarkable batting average I’ve ever seen.

Time after time, these skilled herbalists have gotten it right. They've found natural answers to a multitude of health problems. And modern science is just starting to catch up.
