2.0 out of 5 stars If you think Ibuprofen is a "Home Remedy" You'll Love This.
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars If you think Ibuprofen is a "Home Remedy" You'll Love This., April 6, 2000
This review is from: The Doctor's Book of Home Remedies for Seniors (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.
If you want to learn more about what you can do at home to help improve your health, save your money and use the rich health resources available on the Web!

1.0 out of 5 stars Save you money!, September 4, 2001
By 
Mr. X (Macon, Georgia) - See all my reviews
If you consider taking OTCs pain relieviers and managing stress "home remedies," waste...er, spend your money on this overhyped collection of the same-old, same-old. If you want "real" home remedies, stick with the original books -- Home Remedies 1 and 2. This book is weak in its reporting and writing and fails to mention many of the current "in the news" health concerns (and promised solutions) for the elderly.
