From the Inside Flap

The Doctors Book of Home Remedies for Seniors

When you get to be a certain age, that timeworn phrase "You're as young as you feel" starts to sound a little bit like a bad joke because you're not feeling all that young anymore. But it doesn't have to be that way.

Aches and pains don't have to be an everyday occurrence. Your memory and quick wit can stay just as sharp as they've always been. And with just a little extra attention, your health can be as excellent as it was in your youth.

Yes, it's true your health concerns change with age, and the ways you deal with those health problems have to change, too. That's why the editors of the bestseller The Doctors Book of Home Remedies have brought you The Doctors Book of Home Remedies for Seniors. From around the world, we've brought together the top experts on health for people over 60. Together, they've offered more than 1,500 tips designed to ease the illnesses and complaints that specifically affect men and women as they age. Here are just a few examples.

* Drug-free ways to cut high blood pressure and cholesterol down to size
* Simple solutions for building break-proof bones
* Herbs that can save your eyesight
* A vitamin cure for everything from nosebleeds to crow's-feet
* Exercises to ease hip pain
* A soup recipe that shields you from disease
* The key to a good night's sleep-- without sleeping pills
* A candle-wax cure for arthritic hands

Packed with the safe, practical information that has made Prevention Health Books the most trusted name in self-help health care, this book will help you handle health problems so you won't be robbed of the freedom and vitality you've worked so hard to enjoy.

Whatever the condition, you'll find remedies that are simple and inexpensive, using nothing more than items you probably already have around the house.

Format: Hardcover
I found this book condescending and weak on useful health advice. Despite the "home remedies" title, the book's solution for just about anything that ails you is Ibuprofen. I expected far more emphasis on non-prescription health solutions from a book with the title "home remedies". The book's heavy emphasis on the side effects of prescription drugs made it clear that the authors assumed that the average senior is a prescription drug junkie and there is nothing in this book that will help such junkies kick their habits.
The medical advice in this book is very bland-- the same stuff you'll find in the magazines in your doctors' waiting rooms and in the mailings you get from your HMO. I did not find many home remedies listed here that my own doctor has recommended to me (for example, boric acid for recurrent yeast infections and tea tree oil.) There is no mention of low carbohydrate diets as an alternative to pancreas-destroying glyburide drugs for those in the early stages of Type II diabetes. There's nothing about Condoitin and Glucosamine Sulfate for arthritis. These are all "home remedies" that are gaining increased support from doctors because they work for many people and are far cheaper than expensive prescription drugs. Their complete omission from a book of this sort was a disappointment.
