There's a lot more information in here that's just as valuable.
hair conditioner, omigoodness...it is what we call today a "multi-tasker." This tiny book points the way.
It reads like something published from 1958 (the author even talks about one of his patients giving him a book of medicine of hers from 1824). There aren't any easy ways of reading this but to read it word per word. It doesn't list the ailments with the cures in an easily visible way. It talks about them in paragraphs, like he's telling a story of what works and how.
But there are a lot of good info here, especially for the price. I'm going to try what he said about castor oil, corn oil, kelp, apple cider vinegar and honey.
This is a fast read, I finished it in one sitting (about 1 hr).
