This Natural Medicine book is a very helpful and well-written & researched guide to using natural and homeopathic remedies. There's information for all ages and seems to cover the most common issues. It also includes a broad spectrum of "fixes." It is full of sound and thoughtful advice from teething babies to flu remedies and explains it all in clear language. First-time users of natural, drug-free remedies will find it very user-friendly. I have used some of the remedies and learned information that changed my practice i.e. Microwaving alters the molecules of your food so the body no longer recognizes it as a nutrient.
