Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Collecting the authors Chicken Soup & Other Folk Remedies and More Chicken Soup & Other Folk Remedies, this volume, something of a Prairie Home Companion–style health manual, includes new and revised material addressing such topics as ADD and ADHD, childrens health, osteoporosis and diabetes. The sisters Wilen offer brief entries with homespun solutions, many herbal based, for an alphabetical listing of concerns from asthma, colds and fainting to headaches, smoking and weight control. In many cases, however, the Wilens give little explanation for a remedys effect (for example, taking oregano for depression has a way of lifting ones spirits and eating sauerkraut may prevent sciatica). Beyond specific cures, there are some all-around wonder workers: the good-bye dear morning kiss, bee pollen, the ancient grain salba and singing among them. Although well-meaning, this compendium of folk medicine has a few unsettling moments (for instance, the Wilens comment on depression that staying in a funk is a choice, and the injunction to order your body to heal itself). Such comments will leave even those committed to natural healing grateful for the science that has brought medicine into the 21st century. (Dec.)

This book is chocked full of remedies that are easy to use, cheap to make and above all don't require a Rx. I am convinced that we need to return to more homepathic and natural remedies like this, rather than run to the doctors for pills.

Wilden Sisters deserve a Nobel Prize for Common Sense. Oh, that's right they would prefer people rely on patent medications rather than use their brain.

Good source of information on using remedies around the house. Sometimes though, it doesn't say how to administer the "cure." But, all in all, I have used some of the things that applied to my own situation, and found them very helpful.

As an Rn for many years, I wish I had seen and learned some of their folk remedies sooner in my life. I am trying currently some of the arthritis treatments for my hands, way safer than modern medicine.

Nice tips but a bit limited with some too well known facts.Nothing bad to say about this book, contains some very nice tips .
Too limited for many subjects for example hypertension: no other tips? Are these not well known already?
Don't loose anything by purchasing this book but their are many more books in this field with more information.
Maybe the price should be lower because of this.
Useful if this is not your only,main book for "healing remedies"
