Healing Plants of Fiji

Written by Suliana Siwatibau

Hardcover, 428 pp

As industrialised societies revisit the power of plant-based diets and medicines, indigenous knowledge plays a critical role in this return. This book is the culmination of information collected over years from more than 80 traditional healers in villages and informal settlements in Fiji. The book attempts to document traditional herbal healing concoctions currently used by healers in Fiji. These mixes are passed down through traditional iTaukei (indigenous) healers from one generation to the next. 

Traditional knowledge in the Pacific is primarily passed down through storytelling formats. As urban drift and migration increase, it is critical to record this knowledge to help inform our collective future and health.

This stunning 428-page hardcover book attempts to ensure that the healing plants are correctly identified scientifically, and any relevant information gathered internationally on their uses and effective properties are recorded. Contents include information on 289 species of healing plants used in over 1,000 herbal concoctions to treat approximately 400 ailments.
