3. Humble Weeds of Penang Hill by Abdul Ghani Hussain MBChB.

Weeds always grow in places where they are not wanted. We trample on them, we pull them out and we throw them away. However, they are useful, and unknowingly have properties that render them useful to us in all sorts of ways.

This little book demonstrates the usefulness of these weeds in our daily life. In traditional medicine they have been used to treat many things, including injuries from bleeding wounds to the venomous bites of snakes, scorpions, centipedes, and the stings of bees and wasps.

They are also used in the treatment of fever, cough, urinary problems, and issues related to menstruation. These are very common everyday complaints, and amazingly the remedies are often just outside your front or back door in the garden beyond, just waiting for you to recognise them.

They are as easily accessible today as they were in the past - you just have to know what you are looking for.
