Overview

When the original The Doctors Book of Home Remedies published in 1990, it became the cornerstone of the oldest and arguably the most successful franchise in the history of Rodale Books. Twenty years, ten spinoffs, and millions of copies later, the The Doctors Book remains as popular as ever. It’s easy to understand why: Home remedies are inexpensive, effective, and ideal for everyday ailments that don't require hands-on medical care, as well as for chronic conditions that can benefit from ancillary therapies.

This newly expanded and updated edition delivers the sensible, trustworthy advice that readers have come to expect from the Doctors Book brand. But this volume is more comprehensive, more authoritative, and more accessible than ever, presenting all-new remedies for more than 200 conditions, culled from interviews with hundreds of physicians and other health care professionals. Readers will discover how rubbing aspirin over an insect bite can stop swelling; how table sugar can help heal a minor cut; how soaking their feet in tea can reduce odor; how a mix of bananas and avocado can moisturize dry hair; how sipping soda that’s gone flat can quiet a queasy stomach; and much more. Packed from cover to cover with reliable, user-friendly tips and techniques, The Doctors Book of Home Remedies is like having a physician on call 24/7.

The authors have combed the country to find reliable, unique, and sometimes never-before-revealed self-care secrets practiced by physicians and health-care professionals. The result is a one-of-a-kind volume of sure cures and treatments for common conditions--from angina to ulcers, from sore feet to forgetfulness.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Designed as a reference to help the consumer make informed choices about health, this source book includes more than 2000 self-help remedies for everyday health problems, alphabetically arranged in an easy-to-read format. Each entry provides a description, tips, techniques, and causes for medical concern. Compiled after interviewing medical experts in the appropriate fields, the collection of home-care solutions in each section ends with a list of a panel of advisors. Not an essential purchase; recommended where interest warrants as a supplement to standard health books.-- Marilyn Rosenthal, Nassau Community Coll. Lib., Garden City, N.Y.
