Interesting, but be careful.

I like the idea behind this book very much indeed. Unfortunately I doubt I'll try any of its recipies. Here's why: I turned first to Ms. Gladstar's tea for heartburn, and saw the recipe calls for a good proportion of peppermint. Yet even in the traditional medical community, PEPPERMINT IS SPECIFICALLY KNOWN TO AGGRAVATE HEARTBURN. (Don't ask me why so many antacids are mint-flavored; it's stupid. Unless you consider that antacid manufacturers don't really have anything to gain by solving your problem.)
So once I read that recipe, I my lost faith in the book's premise and its author. How do I know she's not wrong about other things too?
Like everything else, I guess, buyer beware. I sort of wish I hadn't bought.
