Overview

Grandma knew best! These 100 tried-and-true treatments for the most common ailments were staples in her home. With the growth of pharmaceuticals, many of them were temporarily eclipsed—but the newest scientific research proves that many of these healthy foods and herbs are well worth rediscovering. It’s easy to find what you need: the guide is broken up into illustrated chapters on fruits, vegetables, legumes and beans, nuts and seeds, whole grains, herbs, spices, superfoods (like wheatgrass and seaweed), animal protein, dairy, and miscellaneous items such as apple cider vinegar. See how blueberry tea will ease a cough; guacamole helps control cholesterol; and applying a buckwheat poultice relieves pain and inflammation. Each remedy includes basic background on its properties and actions, advice on using it, and simple recipes.
