Science and Home remedies don’t often go together so a book that combines the 2 promises to be interesting. The book consists of 18 “home remedies”consisting of 10 herbal remedies 6 superfoods and 2 that I can only call miscellaneous!
Some are familiar herbs like White Willow bark and Echinacea but there are others I was not familiar with such as Red Vine Extract.
The herbs chosen are mostly easy to find in local shops so anyone wanting to try out some of these selections should be easily able to find a tincture or tablet in their local health store.
Feverfew is included which can be life-changing for anyone with migraines as well as St. John’s Wort which has a good record of use in Depression.
Green tea is one of the herbs included although we could call this a food! This is one of the most powerful and easy things a health conscious person could do – just add a cup green tea to the daily routine. It is a stronger taste than most tea – largely because it is drunk without milk.
Maybe you could add a little honey – another one of the foods included in the book?
There’s also Hibiscus tea – used apparently for heavy duty issues like lowering LDL cholesterol and unclogging arteries. This is a new one to me and the book is worth getting just for this frankly.
Of particular interest to this blog is the inclusion of Milk Thistle – one of the most useful and versatile detox herbs and a real favourite of mine. Other detox stars included are Garlic, turmeric and ginger. the ginger could be in the tea section too because it is very easy to make ginger tea from dried ginger or with some grated ginger root.
I’m pleased to say that the author has a good discussion of Ginseng with several different uses and studies referenced.
The only bone I’d pick is that in his discussion of omega 3 oil he only mentions omega 3 fish oil and not omega 3 flax oil. Simple fact is that the seas are massively polluted and you can avoid that and get clean organic omega 3 from vegetable sources which is where the fish get them!
I hope this compilation of 18 home remedies will be followed by a volume 2 with another 18.
This is a thoroughly good book on Natural Remedies and I recommend it. To see the book on Amazon kindly use this link…
