A guide to healing foods and home remedies reported to and verified by Joe and Terry Graedon, including their carefully researched responses on how and why such treatments work. The core of this title is organized as Q&As between the general public and the Graedons. It contains as much information as a voluminous encyclopedia of home remedies, yet it's quick, easy, inviting, and fun to read, with the same friendly and authoritative personality conveyed in their popular call-in radio show. The Graedons also offer a dozen new recipes for food so good for you, it serves as preventive medicine.
 
Organized alphabetically by ailment and then, within each of those, by food or remedy. Offers the basics of three standard diets for health, weight control, and fitness, along with a dozen new recipes for preparing food to match the diets. Includes a helpful index and cross-referencing system, making the book both a good shelf reference and an entertaining browse.
 
This book builds on the reputation of The People's Pharmacy and adds the extra value that comes from a partnership with National Geographic.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. There were many different suggestions to solve everyday problems. Not all of the things they suggest and proved, but since they are all natural "cures" there's no harm done; just pick another option they give you. I would definitely recommend this book!

Love their column in our local paper and have used a number of the remedies. Glad to have an organized collection.

I have read the Graedon's newspaper articles for years and always find them very helpful and informative. The book is made up of questions from readers and home remedies they have discovered. They usually put in their two cents regarding the remedy and will also cover any potential adverse reactions. It's nice to have alternatives to try instead of using over the counter or prescription medicines.

I haven't gone through the whole book but was certainly disappointed to find that the Gin/Raisin recipe for arthritis was not included in this book. I hope the next help I look for will be in there.

If it's true that the publisher controls the price of e-books as I read in reviews about another book I was interestd in why are you charging $9.99 for this book and Amazon is charging $8.99?
