Product Description

Amazon Review

This book has more than 1000 natural remedies, drawn from many different systems, such as Chinese Herbal, traditional home and folk remedies, flower remedies and so on. It is packed full of fascinating information: walnuts can help to get us through times of change, hawthorn berries can ease angina, a decoction of parsley can help to dissolve bladder stones, live yoghurt heals nappy rash, red peppers can help obesity ... the list is endless.

Each entry has a clear photograph for purposes of identification, along with the properties of the plant, uses, history, warnings, combination advice, recipes and so on. The edges of the pages are colour-coded, for easy navigation. The glossary of terms at the end ensures that the text can be clearly understood and there are recommendations for further reading, should you wish to specialise.

A great resource for anyone interested in natural healing and guaranteed to become a bible for enthusiasts; it is the perfect place to start. Even the most cynical reader will be tempted to try suggestions here, drawn from millennia of wisdom from around the world. --Alison Jardine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I have finally found one book that contains practical information on treating ailments or just maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This book allows you to learn more about alternative remedies as well as being able to look up a condition and treat according to the means you have to hand. Not many people have access to the full range of Traditional Chinese Medicines, Flower Essences or aromatherapy oils but other alternatives offered such as herbs and foods are easily accessible. I am really enjoying building up a collection of natural rememdies and have found it invaluable for the overall health of family and friends. Having been recommended to me, I willingly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a 'home bible' to alternative health.

Have had this book for a year, and have referred to it several times for myself and friends. Provides very comprehensive and readable information, referenced either by condition or remedy. Am now looking at buying it as Christmas presents for family and friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars An eclectic mix of remedies with lots of pictures! 14 April 2008
I actually happened across this book in a second hand shop. It's made a wonderful addition to my herbal bookshelf. Although it doesn't go very deeply into any particular area, it's great to refer to for an overview of how particular ingredients are used in a variety of healing traditions. Because of the friendly layout and pictures, it's also a good book just to browse through and get ideas, find out new things etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Informative 26 July 2011
Lots of information provided appropriate for novice and experienced practitioners alike. Full colour illustrations and a simple layout make the book easy to navigate. Details are provided for eight alternative therapies which compliment each other well. A great book.
