5.0 out of 5 stars for macrobiotic folks, and those eating a good plant-based diet with little sugar, dairy or meat, these really work Oct. 12 2014

Good reference. Of course, the larger book "Macrobiotic Home Remedies" by Michio Kushi and Marc Van Cauwenberghe is more useful, but this smaller volume is a good reference for the most common recipes. For people eating a pretty clean, plant-based diet, these remedies really work, and they cause a lot less harm then over-the-counter medications such as aspirin. I recommend buying both books and having the basic ingredients on hand.

These recipes may NOT work so well for people eating a standard American diet. Their systems are not "quiet"; with so much going on from eating bad food, these remedies may not be able to be as effective.
