The first book to demonstrate how plants originally considered harmful to the environment actually restore Earth’s ecosystems and possess powerful healing properties • Explains how invasive plants enhance biodiversity, purify ecosystems, and revitalize the land • Provides a detailed look at the healing properties of 25 of the most common invasive plants Most of the invasive plant species under attack for disruption of local ecosystems in the United States are from Asia, where they play an important role in traditional healing. In opposition to the loud chorus of those clamoring for the eradication of all these plants that, to the casual observer, appear to be a threat to native flora, Timothy Scott shows how these opportunistic plants are restoring health to Earth’s ecosystems. Far less a threat to the environment than the cocktails of toxic pesticides used to control them, these invasive plants perform an essential ecological function that serves to heal both the land on which they grow and the human beings who live upon it. These plants remove toxic residues in the soil, providing detoxification properties that can help heal individuals. Invasive Plant Medicine demonstrates how these “invasives” restore natural balance and biodiversity to the environment and examines the powerful healing properties offered by 25 of the most common invasive plants growing in North America and Europe. Each plant examined includes a detailed description of its physiological actions and uses in traditional healing practices; tips on harvesting, preparation, and dosage; contraindications; and any possible side effects. This is the first book to explore invasive plants not only for their profound medical benefits but also with a deep ecological perspective that reveals how plant intelligence allows them to flourish wherever they grow.

Invasive Plant Medicine provides a refreshing new theology of ‘invasives,’ or ‘messenger’ plants as they are so aptly termed by the author. Tim Scott goes deep beneath the surface, where thought, practicality, and poetry combine to create a dynamic new exploration of common plant medicine.

Invasive Plant Medicine is an important book no matter who you are: it may reaffirm your commitment to appreciating all plants for who they are, where they are, and what they do, or it may at least inform you about another side of the invasive species debate in a way to help make more considerate decisions.

I have worked both as a pesticide applicator targeting exotic and invasive plant species and (currently) as an organic farmer. While this book is too skewed towards one side of the "invasive debate" to represent a reconciliation of all concerns, I would say that there isn't anything coming from the other side that takes Timothy Scott's issues into account. Invasive Plant Medicine is an important book no matter who you are: it may reaffirm your commitment to appreciating all plants for who they are, where they are, and what they do, or it may at least inform you about another side of the invasive species debate in a way to help make more considerate decisions. Read the book with a grain of salt (I do not think all of the arguments are completely watertight) and at least consider - it may yet prove important in helping us make hard ecological decisions.

I read half through the book and i must say that this is worthwhile reading.
I live in Australia and here the same war on bush invaders is fought since, I think 30 years or so. That way political leaders can tell that they are doing something for the environment, they create employment and keep environmentalists busy pulling out weeds, without ever touching the real problems. There are always weeds who are targeted to be eradicated, but none of them disappeared, they thrive.
My own observations tell that the sprayed weed dies, sort of, everything around that weed dies really and the next year the blackberry grows back.
There is only one method I can accept for herbicide use: scrap and paint, were only minimal amounts are used and only one plant is targeted(3drops), unfortunately this is not mentioned in the book.
In the book I would like to see the chapter on herbicides expanded, especially on glyphosphate. He dismisses too the intentionally spread of weeds like cotoneaster and privet through plant nurseries. I guess, the spreading of thousands of plants through nurseries can attack even a sane ecosystems.
He is very short on were not to forage for weeds, I would like to see this expanded, which residues could be in the soil and how long they persist.
Further there are quite some plants which are invasive but neither edible nor medicinals nor otherwise useful. Cotoneaster and privet for example - what could be done with those?

This book is a must-read for herbalists. For too long have we treated incoming plants as "illegal aliens". Instead we should be getting to know them and their medicinal and edible uses. Even the infamous Kudzu, the "plant that ate the south" can be eaten, used as medicine, and as bio-fuel. New plants often take hold because eco-systems have been compromised by pollution and over development, making them sick. The new arrivals often flourish until balance is restored. With this book you will learn about the newest plants in your bio-region, use them for food and medicine, and celebrate them!

Excellent information. Will be my go to book for the value of invasives. Now I have proof that a plant is only a weed when it grows where you don't want it.

It's good to know some constructive uses for invasive plants which otherwise would just bum me out. Several of us in my wild food instructor training class, as well as our instructors, are enjoying and learning from this book.

Scott thinks outside of the box and makes the case that nature knows best! A keeper.

Very important information for understanding plants and our relationship to them. I have found it both helpful and enlightening.
