Author(s): Penelope Ody
Natural remedies are widely available not only from specialist herb and health food shops but from mainstream pharmacies and supermarkets. Penelope Ody provides an invaluable guide to the exotic, fashionable and familiar components of complementary medicine, including the European herb and hedgerow plants that have been used for generations, foods that form the mainstay of any larder, as well as some of the lesser-known newcomers. She recommends remedies for numerous common illnesses, aches and pains, and through an extensive directory, explores the vast array of herbs, healing plants and foods that are available to us all. With advice on using and making remedies safely and effectively at home, as well as growing, harvesting and preparing herbs, this book assembles the definitive home medicine chest and encourages confidence and intuitive skill in reclaiming the responsibility for our own well-being that our ancestors took for granted.
