Introduction
By Al Sears, MD

 My plane swept in low, over open ocean. Through the jet’s tiny window, I could just catch a glimpse of what lay ahead. It was green as far as I could see. A deeper, richer green than I’d ever seen before. The jungles of Asia.
After 30 hours in the air, I was about to fulfill a dream I’d had since I was a child. I was about to stand on the island of Bali.
My dream began with my father’s stories from World War II. I was fascinated by his tales of the island beaches… impenetrable jungles… and the warm, generous people who lived there.
The island that enchanted him most was Bali. An island with a unique culture and a beauty he never felt he could quite describe. This was too much for my young imagination. I had to visit Bali someday.
And now, here I was. About to realize my dream.
I’ve been to jungles before… in India, Jamaica, and the Amazon. But none of them compare with Bali. The island boasts shades of green I’ve never seen anywhere else on the planet.
Bali has a rich and unique herbal tradition. In fact, “Balian” is the local word for their healers.
My journey would take me deep into the interior. To the foot of Bali’s volcano, far away from the beaches of my father’s stories.
And it was there, in the city of Ubud, that I met a married couple dedicated to preserving Bali’s herbal traditions.
I Made Westi is the son of traditional rice farmers. Spry and energetic, Westi is in his early 40s. But when it comes to herbs, he has the enthusiasm of a teenager.
Westi is an unusual farmer. And not just because he grows herbs instead of rice. He’s also been to college. And he sees that modern farming methods are destroying the island he loves.
Westi’s wife is Ni Wayan Lelir. A petite woman with dark hair and sparkling eyes, her energy matches her husband’s. And so does her knowledge of herbs.
Lelir’s parents were traditional herbal healers. In fact, she can trace the herbal tradition in her family back for at least five generations. And she’s following in the family footsteps, studying traditional Indian medicine — called Ayurveda — at a nearby university.
Westi has converted the family’s rice fields into a huge herb garden. He leads “herbal walks” through the fields and rice paddies near their home. Lelir runs a shop where she prepares and sells herbal medicines and cosmetics. Between them, they may know more about cultivating, preparing and using Bali’s traditional herbs than anyone else on Earth.
Bali is one of Earth’s unique places. An ancient culture that has drawn from its neighbors, yet retains a flavor all its own. Bali has its own language, its own customs… and its own healing system.
But that system is rapidly disappearing. Western medicine is pushing Bali’s rich herbal tradition into the background. Young Balinese are becoming modern… and leaving the old ways behind.
Westi and Lelir are working tirelessly to preserve Bali’s rich herbal traditions.
This book is an extension of their life’s work. It’s filled with herbal wisdom little known in the West. They’ve recorded traditions, personal stories and recipes.
You’ll Discover More than Herbs. You’ll Discover Bali’s healing Secrets.
When Westi and I first talked about publishing a book, he envisioned a “materia medica” — a what, where and how of Bali’s herbs. But as our discussions went on, it became clear this book would become much more than that.
You’ll travel with us to some of Bali’s most beautiful and unusual places. Places like the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, an ancient forest temple complex that’s now home to hundreds of monkeys.
And every chapter will introduce you to one of Bali’s many useful plants. Some will be familiar — with unfamiliar uses. Others will be strange and new. Many have remarkable properties that Western science is only now discovering… centuries after Bali’s healers understood their use.
Many chapters include recipes for herbal teas and other healing preparations. I can speak from personal experience that some of them are remarkably effective.
I also share some of my experiences, personal research and recommendations with you.
But Is It Practical?
The answer is “yes.” Some of these plants are readily available in supermarkets. You can buy pineapple and ginger, for instance, almost anywhere.
Others are available in many Asian markets. They may take a little more effort to find, but the effort will be worth it.
You can read this book from cover to cover, just as you would a novel. Believe me, this isn’t your high school botany text.
You can also use the book as a reference by reading each chapter individually. You don’t need to read any particular chapter before any other. Each one stands on its own.
However you decide to read this book, please do read it. You’ll find answers for many common — and some not so common — health problems. You’ll find simple instructions for preparing delicious and healthful teas and drinks.
And you’ll encounter a rich herbal tradition almost unknown in the Western world.
