About This Book

A complete herbal handbook of home cures and kitchen remedies from the team behind Backyard Medicine and Backyard Medicine for All!Originally published in the UK as Kitchen Medicine. 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 we've become much less self-reliant. Now Home Remedies 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
  • So much more!

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