Kitchen Medicine: Household Remedies for Common Ailments and Domestic Emergencies Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A complete herbal handbook of home cures and remedies
 
Years ago, every household practiced kitchen medicine. Doctors were expensive and people were self-reliant—even when it came to health care.

Today, doctors are more expensive and weve become much less self-reliant. Now Kitchen Medicine revives that lost tradition of the kitchen as pharmacy.

 
Learn how:

Fennel wards off symptoms of menopause

Garlic reduces cholesterol levels

Lemon relieves rheumatism Ginger treats a cold

An olive oil purge can eliminate gallstones

Sore joints are eased with mustard

 
With great original photography, foolproof recipes, and fascinating insights into the history of these household ingredients, Kitchen Medicine gives you the “medicinal intelligence” to create your own remedies and cures from the remarkable and “exotic” treasures found sitting in your kitchen right now.

Synopsis:

In Kitchen Medicine the authors describe the wealth of healing and emergency remedies that sit unused and idle in the kitchen. Superb illustrations adorn a lively text. The ingredients are all easily found in the kitchen although in some cases they are exotic in origin (just think of tea, coffee and chocolate).

Synopsis:

Though most accidents happen in the kitchen, dangers lurk everywhere in the home. Yet the kitchen is the room thats most likely to hold the remedies for household emergencies—or even common ailments. These arent exotic ingredients but things you likely can find in your own kitchen, including herbs and spices, fruits and vegetables, condiments and dressings, oils and vinegars, and lots of other common and familiar items.

In Kitchen Medicine, herbalist Julie Bruton-Seal describes the wealth of healing and emergency remedies that sit unused and idle in your kitchen. Superb illustrations by her photographer husband, Matthew Seal, adorn her lively text. The ailments and illnesses that Kitchen Medicine addresses are comprehensively listed to make diagnosis and cure both immediate and easy.

Synopsis:
