THE PEOPLE'S PHARMACY:
Quick & Handy Home Remedies
(Q&As for your common ailments)

By: Joe and Terry Graedon

These are strange and frequently disturbing times, times when a source of entertainment frequently tells you the medicine your doctor wants you to "try" - well there's a strong possibility it might kill you. Kill you, cause blindness, render skin rashes or heart stoppage.

This is not to say you should distrust your doctor or his medicines, but ideal, before you might meet an unfriendly medicine, you could encounter a home remedy, say an ounce of vinegar, soaking your raisins in sloe gin one which could keep you away from the medicine altogether. It was affirming when I learned my new doctor also takes the Joe and Terry Graedon's email newsletter.

The book is divided into three parts - Home Remedies for specific ailments, Favorite Foods, and their nutritional bonuses and finally, Eating for Health.

The Joe and Terry Graedon are not physicians but scholars who hold graduate and doctoral degrees respectively. This book will compliment any family bookcase as a helpful guide to what ails you, when your complaint isn't life threatening.

Part I, (sample cases)
Complaint: Canker Sores -- Aloe vera, baking soda, baking soda, buttermilk, green beans, kiwi, Mylanta even styptic pencil. They present a letter from a sufferer, and then they offer their response. It's valuable to hear the patient's complaints and helpful to be able to try some of the suggested solutions. They present instances from acne to wound card.

Complaint: Plantar Fasciitis, solutions using cherry juice, others using fish oil came in.

I have already had occasion to pull the book out twice and look for a home remedy (once for a burn and once for a leg cramp)...and both worked great! There are many things that happen in our daily lives that are annoying and/or painful, but do not merit a doctor's visit. This book is easy to use and great for these occurences!

I have the "People's Pharmacy Quick and Handy Remedies" book and love it.
I find all the information so easy to find on any subject I look up. I have
tried several of the remedies and find they have been very helpful. Especially the ones on Joint Pain and Arthritis. I have always enjoyed Joe and Terry's newpaper columns and their TV appearances. Now I am enjoying this new book and would recommend it to everyone.

I so enjoy this book. I've looked up so many helpful things that give good perspective. I deal with a heart condition (pacemaker), osteoporosis and cholesterol. So proper foods and natural treatments are vitally important to me.
I highly recommend this book to those who are interested in a natural approach to daily self-care.

Thanks,

This book is an excellent source of practical and useful information. Rather than get on the assembly line conveyor belt of modern medicine, which leads through your wallet, look for solutions before you become drug addicted and have traded symptoms that were worse than your original complaint. Love the intention of these author - to make people more self-reliant and confident about their bodies.

I love this book. I've learned so many things and tried them! I switched to Listerine & Baking Soda for toothpaste due to the lauryl sulfate in tp that causes canker sores. My mouth feels so much better. Really great book.

You need this book when you think that you have tried everything on the market to clear up dandruff or fungal infections. You will be surprised to find out that common home remedies like vinegar and water can do miracles. Also the gin soaked raisins, the gin evaporates, help with joint pain.

Kudos to the Pharmacy people for putting out books like these. So many people want to try out homeopathic remedies before having to see a doctor for what may be a minor problem. A very useful book.
