Natural Wisdom for Curing Every Ache, Pain, and Ailment

As little as a few decades ago, folk remedies were a part of everyday life. More often than not, our grandparents would go to their garden or kitchen pantry before they went to a doctor to treat everyday health complaints. Today, scientific studies are proving what Grandma knew all along--natural remedies are oftentimes just as effective as modern cures, have fewer side-effects, and cost just pennies. Moreover, natural remedies have stood the test of time. Peppermint has been used as soothe upset stomachs long before Pepto-Bismal and ginger has been used for its antibiotic properties for thousands of years in Asian medicine. Learn how to quickly and naturally treat over 100 common conditions with everyday cures:

-Use Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey to break up congestion

-Black or Green Teabags will take the sting out of a bad sunburn

-Drink Beet, Celery, and Cucumber juice to soothe a shingles outbreak.

-Inhale oil of Geranium to calm a hot flash

-Apply a Witch Hazel compress to treat varicose veins

-Pumpkin Seeds improve male potency

-Burnt Toast soaks up internal toxins

-Epsom Salt bathes heal the lymphatic system

Filled with thousands of surprising cures, each entry gives multiple remedies for each condition from herbs, to healing foods, to acupressure and yoga poses. Hundreds of step-by-step illustrations show you the right way to administer a treatment from making herbal tinctures to applying a poultice. Dosage guidelines are given for every remedy as well as safety guidelines, contraindications, and when to call a doctor.

Synopsis:

This book presents natural and time-tested methods for treating hundreds of common ailments including burns, insect bites, skin rashes, PMS, and upset stomach.

Synopsis:

The Country Almanac of Home Remedies presents hundreds of natural and time-tested methods for treating hundreds of common ailments including burns, insect bites, skin rashes, PMS, and upset stomach. The book includes thrifty and easy remedies that can be made from items commonly found in the pantry, refrigerator, and garden. Readers get DIY solutions they can use for quick relief of common ailments through natural alternatives--without a trip to the pharmacy. For example, using a paste of crushed up aspirin and water to calm the inflammation of sunburn. Each remedy references the latest studies and medical advice to tell readers why it works—i.e. valerian root is a mild version of the prescription drug valium thus making a cup of valerian tea the perfect remedy for stress, PMS, and other nervous conditions.
