Medicinal Insects (Entomotherapy) and Carnivorous Plants
This book is all about insects, and their medicinal contributions. It also contains a few plants that eat insects, and their use for health and healing. It is far from complete and deals mainly with insects found in northern North America, where I reside.
Ants, bees, wasps, grasshoppers, spiders, dragonflies, slugs, maggots, butterflies, moths and numerous other insects contain compounds used in herbal medicine. Bees, for example, give us propolis, royal jelly, honey, and pollen- all prized for promoting health and well being. I am an ethnobotanist and herbalist, so apologize in advance to all entomotherapists for any errors or omissions.
