This is an interesting compilation of herb lore and common remedies that were routinely used to treat a plethora of symptoms and ailments before the advent of patent medicines. The book gives listings for common ailments, the herbal and natural remedies used to treat them and interesting information about the different ingredients used. Even if you don't try any of the remedies, it's entertaining to read about what our ancestors used to treat the maladies with which mankind is afflicted.

This book is not what I expected. I thought I would be getting advice on what natural ingredient to use for a specific malady. It is not like that at all. It is a common sense guide on to get/stay healthy. I gave it 3 stars cause it is well-written, it just isn't what I wanted.

I like this book a lot, not only for the remedy tips, but also for the bits of trivia and other information. Easy to read. i like the fact that other health-related websites are also offered for additional information.

I expected "folk remedies " but just didn't see them. Many were modern day things we all do. Others were just common sense things. I was hoping for things like the native Americans used, and things the early pioneers did. Again disappointed.
