Why this book?
As a medical doctor in Germany with a private practice I am specialized in holistic medicine. Besides “school medicine” this includes naturopathic therapies like nutrition, sports therapy, structural therapy and of course herbal medicine. Since about 30 years my hobby is to collect knowledge about “bush medicine” in the Bahamas based on interviews, literature, internet research and some field study.
Twice a year I am in Long Island, Bahamas, to interview people, make photos and illustrations. Now this “ripened” to become a book with 70 plants I want to publish as first edition.
Please look at the more detailed curriculum vitae, which you also find in the internet including my doctors survey under the name Wilmanowicz.
Research based book about bush medicine in the Bahamas, use of plants, detailed description etc.
The structure helps to find information of 70 important plants easily, but it is also paid attention to certain Bahamian subjects, some history, the island etc.
Though scholarly it is readable for a broad public. A more scientific version is “under construction”.
