Polynesian Remedies

The Polynesian Islands were the last places on Earth to be settled; migrants first came from Asia around 1000BC. Early Polynesian seafarers loaded their boats with coconuts, taro rhizomes (Colocasia esculenta), breadfruits, and seeds and cuttings of many other plants, and along with assorted pigs and chickens set sail for the distant horizon of the future. Today's herbal medicine owes much to these ancient, intrepid sailors and the exotic, healing plants that are now part of our life as well.
