Product Description

From Amazon

Pick an ailment--any ailment--and chances are, Bill Gottlieb can succinctly crystallize the problem, propose its root cause, and describe a handful of nonmedical remedies for treatment. Creator and supervising editor of the bestselling Doctors Book of Home Remedies, this 25-year veteran of the health field draws from more than 300 alternative care practitioners (including holistic nutritionists, licensed acupuncturists, massage therapists, and the occasional swami) to present a thick textbook worthy of gracing the reference shelf of any family or health provider. Serious physical ailments like asthma, HIV and AIDS, stroke, and cancer receive equal attention with pesky afflictions like oily hair, acne, nightmares, and wrinkles. Mental health ailments, such as guilt, anxiety, grief, and shyness, also get their due. Gottlieb's stance is not that individuals should shun their primary care physicians to rely solely on herbs, better nutrition, and other alternative paths. Rather, he seeks to educate readers on the biological effects of such practices and tinctures, to share their documented benefits in helpful detail. Each ailment receives a sidebar titled "Guide to Professional Care," in which Gottlieb outlines symptoms that warrant immediate medical attention. Other sidebars highlight especially helpful treatment--from aromatherapy to meditation--for various troubles. Gottlieb provides an section on alternative healing where he elaborates on the process, benefits, and safety of each general treatment referred to in the book (from acupuncture to yoga therapy). Complete information, an engaging writing style, and visually appealing graphics make this encyclopedia-style book very easy to digest. --Liane Thomas

This is the most comprehensive, intelligent, and user-friendly reference book I've ever found on alternative remedies. And it's from Rodale Press, whom I've learned to trust. Anyone interested in alternative home remedies, especially parents, will want this around. Well done.

Borrowed this book from a friend. Found it so helpful that I took it to my Doctor who had not been successful in treating me for Heatburn. Wished I had one of my own - went on line and was fortunate to get a decent used copy. Would recommend your company to anybody. Oh, delivery was very speedy. Impressive!

Format: Hardcover
I have had irritable bowel syndrome for years. It seems to have no cure with conventional medicine, so I bought Alternative Cures. The book recommended peppermint tea, which I found in the health food section of my local grocery store. I bought some and tried it, and my problems are greatly relieved! Sure was worth the cost of the book!
