Touch me, Touch-me-not: Women, Plants and Healing
Touch me, Touch-me-not: Women, Plants and Healing
Description
About the Book:

That common or garden flower, the touch-me-not (Mimasa pudica), is one of the most efficacious in healing a range of disorders, particularly gynaecological ones. It has been in use in India for hundreds of years, but with the advent of modern medicine, is gradually disappearing from people's knowledge. There are many more such plants which have been a source of healing and are no longer used for their medicinal purposes.

Concerned about fast vanishing local health traditions, Shodhini, a network of women's health activists, came together in search of a woman-centred approach as an alternative to the prevailing dominant systems of health care. Touch me, Touch-me-not is the result of their research. A unique compilation of plants and their medicinal value, the remedies in this book are the result of over eight years of treating women across the country for everything from vaginal discharge to menstrual disorders, uterine complaints, urinary tract infections and other ailments.

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
