The Green Fuse is a tribute to plants, describing their powers and their connections to humanity, the earth and the cosmos. Left unconvinced of the enduring success of her cancer treatment by conventional medicine, the gift of a little book along with an opportunity of ‘six months off to find her happiness’ had unexpected consequences. While doing the 40-day herbal cancer cure the author experienced feelings of supreme wellbeing. She decided to investigate why this should be.
The book outlines extensive research from many disciplines, both worldwide and across the ages. Hilary's findings chart the drastic loss of the use of plants in western medicine.
