Texas County’s unique off-grid expert, Merlyn Seeley (a.k.a. Spirit Walker), has released another book related to his specialty: “Using Herbal Remedies.”
“It’s all about how to use herbs for medical healing and making your own medicine,” Seeley said. “There’s a lot of information about what to use for what purpose. The first couple of chapters focus on common ailments people deal with.
“There’s also a chapter on what to use for children.”
Seeley feels the information in the book is important to people because of shortcomings inherent to the mainstream medical system.
“Modern day medicine isn’t working,” he said. “I hear from so many people that they get treated over and over again and still have their problem. They tell me ‘it’s been 20 years and I still have it.’ Meanwhile the doctors are changing your medicine left and right and changing your doses; obviously our medical system is broken.
“The book deals with medicine that’s been around for thousands of years that’s been proven to work and still works today. When modern medicine came to the forefront, people started replacing their old ways with the new thing because they were told it works better. But it doesn’t.”
Seeley believes true medical practice should get down to the root of a given ailment.
“Modern medicine only addresses symptoms,” he said. “That’s why when you go into a facility they give you a piece of paper and ask you what your symptoms are. But most of the time they don’t go to the root of the problem.
“Natural medicine has always gone to the root of the problem and focused on fixing what is causing your symptoms.”
Seeley has now written more than 40 books related to off-grid living, including six currently in print. He said he feels strongly about sharing the message in his newest work.
“I feel it’s important for people to know they have an alternative to modern medicine,” Seeley said. “They’ve been taught that modern medicine is all we have, but it’s not. It’s just all they know about.
“I have a passion for natural medicine and I feel like it’s my mission to educate as many people as possible about what it can do for them.”
Seeley will soon release his first novel, based in large part on his experiences in hiking the Appalachian Trail and living (on purpose) as a homeless person in Florida.
“Using Herbal Remedies” is available online on Lulu, or directly from Seeley. It will soon be available on numerous online book sources, both in print and digital form.
