Every home should have one,
This review is from: Prescription for Nutritional Healing (Prescription for Nutritional Healing: A Practical A-To-Z Reference to Drug-Free Remedies) (Paperback)
I've been referencing the PFNH book for so long, I can't remember when I purchased my original one (2nd Edition). This book is so informative, and I guarantee there's more to it than you think. Touted as a "self-help approach to good health", the PFNH guide offers natural remedies for fever, headaches, common pregnancy woes and more, from "abcess" to "yeast infection". PFNH also discusses serious diseases, such as AIDS, cancer, diabetes, heart and kidney disease, and gives advice on remedies and diets that can help aid a person who may be suffering from one of these. But wait- there's more! Includes a table of herbs, their origin, and the maladies they can help relieve, an entire section on color therapy (a fave of mine), chelation therapy, fasting, sitz baths and pain control. The back of the book holds an impressive glossary (to help define ailments that you heard about and never truly understood) and a list of manufacturers and distributors, health and medical hotlines and organizations, and even a list of suggested reading to continue your natural medicine education. No home should be without this book. I buy each new edition that comes out, because we get more than our money's worth.
