  • For years, the survival of humans depended on alternative medicine. This branch of health care, which is unlike orthodox medication in several ways, was once considered the pinnacle of nature’s way of saving man’s life. However, over the years its importance and usage has seen a steady decline.
    The reasons for this trend are multifaceted, more so because alternative medicine had always been in conjunctive use with orthodox medical methods for years on end. Therefore, its decline can be attributed to the popularity and technological advancement of the modern health care industry. One of the most prominent reasons has been a shift in attitude on the part of medical practitioners and the masses in general.
    In the 1998 edition of the New England Journal of Medicine, the use of alternative medicine, especially herbal medication, had been severely criticized. Some of the major areas of contention revolved around this field being ‘...unregulated, unscientific and dangerous.’ Even though herbal medicine is usually considered free of side effects, thinking of it as perfect and a God sent was never a claim.
    Consequently, steadily after this revelation, herbal medication was sidelined and orthodox practices took over as the most reliable and widespread means of curing and curbing major and minor illnesses. The relatively small chunk of the population that still believes in herbal cures has become as extinct as the herbs themselves!
    After years of worshipping orthodox medicine and its miracles, a new found interest in organic produce has brought herbal medication to the forefront once again. However, this time the reason behind the interest and attitude shift has more to do with tackling the numerous side effects that modern medical practices have left in their wake. Herbs, their oils, essences and bi-products are being explored under a strict medical lens as sustainable future medicines. Therefore, the once bleak future of alternative medicine may just become more promising.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another "cure all" book with no citations. August 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My Dad used Witch Hazel for most of his life and I have, off and on, incorporated it into my life, so I am familiar with some of its uses. This book, however, takes using it to new extremes. I worry about books like this which tout the mystical and magical powers found in the latest "cure all" and then suggest a myriad of uses while providing nothing to back them up.

The book is fairly well written but contains errors and omissions which editing should have caught.

This book is an interesting read, but for me...I'll do tons more research AND speak with my doctor before I even consider brewing concoctions out of Witch Hazel to take internally.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected. August 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It does have some good information regarding what Witch Hazel is and what it can do. I have purchased witch hazel and used it in the past. It is easy to find and inexpensive. This "Ultimate Guide" explains how to make your own witch hazel from the plant. Not something I am interested in doing. Then gives a great recipe for witch hazel tea starting with the plant rather than giving instructions if you are purchasing the witch hazel. This made it pretty much useless for me.

A friend told me to use Witch Hazel as an astringent because I ran out of my Clinique Acne Solution. I purchased one and tried it and I am extremely satisfied and happy I took my friend's advice. The book taught me a whole lot of other uses for the product that I was not aware of and I will be trying. It works better than the brand name product and saved me money.

Great list of uses. Recipes should be good if one can find the plant. Book needs to better explain the plant & how to identify it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not much info December 17, 2013

Very little information. The author employs the old undergraduate trick of saying the same thing several times in slightly and only slightly different ways.
