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.Read more ›
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 highly recommend this book to those who are interested in a natural approach to daily self-care.

This paperback book is not what I was expecting. I have not learned anything more than I already knew and it seems to be written in a sort of dumbed down way. Read morePublished 29 days ago by Jane Eyre
