As a life coach, I always encourage my clients and friends to take an active role in their healthcare. This means reading, researching, and making wise choices.

One of my favorite shows to watch is called Alone and it’s on the History Channel. The premise of the show is to see how long you can live alone in the woods surviving on the land with only ten survival items to get you started. The first season was only men but subsequently, they have featured several women who are also survival experts.

There is one woman in particular who caught my attention. Her name is Dr. Nicole Apelian, Ph.D. She wrote the book, The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies. I remember admiring her because she was brave enough to go on the show a second time even though she suffers from MS.

About Dr. Nicole Apelain, according to her website:

Herbalist, biologist, anthropologist, researcher, mother, survival TV celebrity, traditional skills instructor, and author. Following an unexpected diagnosis of multiple sclerosis in 2000, Nicole applied her scientific research skills towards her own personal wellness. She focuses on holistic wellness, which includes nature connection, gratitude, diet, and herbal remedies.


I started following her because I want to understand how she manages her disease. Having an RA diagnosis of my own made me want to try a more natural and holistic approach to my healthcare. It worked for me because my doctor no longer believes that I have or even had RA.

Dr. Nicole Apelian also keeps her disease under control with natural remedies such as herbs and roots.

Keep in mind that I am not a doctor nor am I telling you to abandon your healthcare in favor of plants. I am simply giving you information that I found helpful. Please talk to your doctor about your diagnosis and treatment plan.

Nicole Apelian specializes in medicinal plants. She outlines these in her book, The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies.

It is interesting because you’ll find 800+ beneficial plants and remedies in “The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies”. It includes recipes of tinctures, teas, decoctions, essential oils, syrups, salves, poultices, infusions, and many other natural remedies that our grandparents used for centuries. What’s also special about this book is that it has between two and four high definition, color pictures for each plant and detailed identification guidelines to make sure you’ve got the right plant.

I live in the city and I confess that I have a brown thumb, but I find her work interesting. I don’t think you have to live in the woods or on a farm to take advantage of the many recipes and ideas found in the book.

Have you discovered any natural remedies for what ails you?

On my own I’d be afraid that I’d select the wrong herb or plant but with the help of the book and it’s illustrations I’m confident that I can make some of these recipes for myself.

This one idea in particular, fermenting cabbage with salt, is a little off-putting to me but what if it works? It’s a natural way to make sauerkraut without all the preservatives and junk you get at the store but with all the health benefits of fermented food.
