Books for Growing Herbs Used for Asthma and the Immune System
Answered by: Conrad Richter
Question from: Margaret Kohler
Posted on: August 7, 2003

I was wondering if you could recommend books for the following interests.

I have experience using medicinal herbs for asthma and the immune system but I bought them. Now I am going to grow them: I need help in growing the plant from seed and knowing how much and what part of the plant I need to use for my asthma. I have used the following herbs in the past; mullein, ephedra, astragalus, licorice, ginger, primrose oil, nettles, in conjunction with quercitin, B vitamins, etc. I also went to a herbalist who gave me chinese herbs. I had some success but it was very expensive and I couldn’t keep up.
