Natural Knowledge

The Secrets of Medicinal Plants and Elements

Learning from Mother Earth

How ancient knowledge from nature can make people feel better and more satisfied.

For generations, customs, recipes, rituals, and stories have been cultivated and passed down in the Alpine region, carrying the secrets of nature and revealing how man can make use of them.

Medicinal plants and herbs are only a part of it—because nature’s versatile treasures are not only found on fields, forest floors, and meadows. Their power is present in all the elements and surrounds us everywhere.

The popular »Natural Knowledge« series in Servus in Stadt und Land presents tried and tested cures and household remedies and gathers informative, helpful, and curious facts from Mother Nature’s textbook: how animals predict the weather, why stars have an influence on the vigor of humans and plants and what can be used to heal even a broken heart.
