Good compendium of natural cures for ailments March 12 2006
By Joanna Daneman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a good compilation of natural remedies collected from around the world. The book is organized by a list of common complaints (digestive disorders, women's complaints, simple wounds, for example) and then there is a list of various healing treatments in the tradition of various peoples, from the British Isles to the ancient Egyptians. So the book is interesting to read from a cultural standpoint (how do different cultures treat the same ailment) or from the standpoint of different herbal or massage remedies for various problems. Unusual herbal remedy book, in this regard, and fascinating reading.
