We come out of the earth, and theres something in the earth to cure everything - I dont fix a tonic until Im sure whats wrong with a person.

I dont make guesses. I have to be sure, because medicine can do bad as well as good, and I dont want to hurt anybody. - Maybe it takes some herbs. Maybe it takes some touching. But most of all, it takes faith--Vernon Cooper, Lumbee healer. The Lumbee Indian tribe has lived in the coastal plain of North Carolina for centuries, and most Lumbee continue to live in rural areas of Robeson County with access to a number of healing plants and herbs used in the form of teas, poultices, and salves to treat common ailments.

This work contains numerous plant and herbal remedies that the Lumbee have used for centuries and continue to use today. There are remedies for ailments relating to cancer (external and internal), the circulatory and digestive systems, the heart, hypertension and hypotension, infections and parasitic diseases, asthma, pregnancy, sprains, swellings, and muscle, skeletal and joint disorders, to name just a few.
