The Title says HOME Remedies, so with this book being done by the Mayo clinic, and it shows items that you can use from your home, or supplements and the title I expected actual remedies.
I will list a few of the things in the book to explain my disappointment.
Sprains is listed in the book - Their advice? RICE - Rest, ice, compress, elevate I mean this is extremely basic 1st aid that I would think most would know. There was absolutely no insight into some novel way to handle such a common thing.
Indigestion - Eat smaller more frequent meals, avoid triggers, maintain healthy weight, exercise, manage stress, reconsider meds, drink herbal tea with peppermint. Anyone that has been diagnosed with this, knows those VERY basic things. But I expected to see, try eating Ginger as it really helps settle the stomach. I wanted to hear about natural remedies that could be used at home to resolve this.
Eczema - Identify and avoid triggers, apply anti-itch cream, avoid scratching, use mild soaps and moisturize skin, use a humidifier......
Again anyone that has this diagnosis knows these very basic things. A dermatologist would clearly say to take warm, but not hot shower, and to put a cream on while your skin is still moist....
There are a FEW things that do list supplements or something that you can do to help. You may see drink tea or take B vitamins or something sprinkled here and there but overall this book doesn't really offer anything unique.
A lot of readers may want home remedies that are not too different from folk medicine. This book is not for you. This is a very well-designed, interesting book that offers updated health-care information about health problems that can typically be treated at home.
If you live in a hurricane zone as I do, I think this book would be a useful addition to one's emergency kit.
Mostly I needed to purchase since I only have internet access at work and kids usually get sick at 3:00am.
