I am just finishing reading this book. I bought it because I was looking for answers to some health problems me and my husband have but also because I am interested in natural medicine. In this book the author goes around the US and talks to all kinds of alternative health professionals. What you get is a lot of very valuable information and advice. I only didn't give it 5 stars because I wanted to find here alternatives using the spices and herbs you can easily find everywhere, like cayenne pepper, cider vinegar and such. This book is more about supplements but very interesting nevertheless and very much worth reading. As they say on the cover it contains information about more than 1.000 of the most effective natural home remedies. Still, the problem is that many of the supplements discussed in this book are rather expensive, at least here in Europe so if you take a few for a longer period of time it does cost you a lot of money. But you get to understand health problems better and although you don't go and buy everything they talk about you can make an informed choice. At the end there is also a very interesting explanation about what many of the alternative therapies are all about, a guideline for the safe use of the remedies they purpose, where you can go to get the products they talk about (very useful because sometimes you read about something you would like to try but you have no idea where to find it) and a couple of pages which show you the acupressure points in case you want to try the therapies. Even if you don't suffer from anything it is always good to be informed so that you can avoid those ailments. And they do discuss a lot of ailments.... even wrinkles!Read more ›

My husband and I started reading this at our daughters house and enjoyed it so much, had to get one for ourselves.. It's one of the easiest alternative cure books we've read. It's full of great advice that's easy to understand and supplements that are easy to find.. We've tried a few of the alternatives and found them to be very helpful.

I can't say enough about what a wonderful book this is. Updated and easier to read with a new font. It is one that we refer to with regularity at our home. I will buy extras to give as gifts to family I think that highly of it.

I am interested in anything having to do with alternative medicine, herbs, natural remedies, etc. I do believe in an integrated approach to the different medical schools of thought and using the best of all worlds. I especially like this authors sections on Guide to Professional Care. For the inexperienced sometimes it is hard to find an alternative practitioner, it's like going down the list in the yellow pages and picking one. He gives you tips on things to look for in a doctor and when a medical condition is bad enough to need a doctor. He also gives more than 1,000 home remedies that can be used right in the home. I liked this book and use it as a reference guide for me and my family. -- Val Lull

I have been a Natural Drugless Doctor since 1978 before it was popular to say NO to Prescription Drugs. This book provides information for you to choose what you can do to achieve optimal health and function without running to the conventional physician for a med which manages symptoms and often creates challenges that require more meds. I have read thousands of books, each one has a nugget to add to your "Natural Health Care Kit" this one has a 1000. It is a pleasure to read a piece that is actually trying to help; tis book will make a difference, I promise. Dr. Bob DeMaria "The Drugless Doctor"

I like what it does in that it offers alternatives to conventional medicine. I have a previous issue of this book so was a bit disappointed when I realized that I had bought a paper back that was smaller. Being smaller means basically one has to hold the book with both hands to read it. I read a fair amount while having a meal so this book does not qualify for that type of reading.

Alternative Cures is the answer to most heath related problems you will every come across. I have owned this book for over two years and will go to it for almost anything from an ear ache to muscle cramps, infections, stomach aches, the flu, head colds, you name it and this book with have the natural cure for it.

I have ordered this book for a number of family members with small children because it is safe and gets away from medications that have secondary effects on the body.

This is a fantastic book with great results.

a good book for those who want to get rid of some of those various lingering med problems. i gave it 4 stars and not 5 just because of the jargons in the book (e.g. vitamin E for this, vitamin D for that). if you have no idea what foods or home remedies serve these vitamins then you're gonna be annoyed. Good book to have but the not so savvy like myself might want to buy another book to complement, which explains the food groups and their health contents/uses.
