I purchased this book thinking that it would give me simple at home remedies (like cooking white rice and chicken for digestive ailments)...Um, not quite.
It is definitely "holistic", meaning most, if not all, the remedies call for ingredients not found in the typical (even holistic) household. Fresh/ Raw Bayberry, Bach flowers, Red Clover, Calendula, Devil's Claw, Goldenseal etc - not the liquids or pills, but the fresh herbs. Sorry, but I don't have fresh herbs just laying around the house and you can't find them at your local health food store either.
Needless, to say I haven't tried any of the remedies, but I have found it useful for info purposes. For instance, the book recc putting boiled Calendula on wounds. Instead I bought a Calendula salve/ointmet and use it for minor cuts for my pet and I. The chapter on dog food/diet is very imformative, and my pet is living proof of what a good dog food can do for your pet.
I think this book would be a good resource for a family that has tried "conventional vet" medicine with no relief, and is looking for an alternative form of disease treatment.
