Q. I love reading about all the unusual remedies people try for their health problems. Have you put their experiences in a book? I would love to get a copy.

A. We have collected a large number of these stories in our book, The People’s Pharmacy Quick and Handy Home Remedies. They include everything from topical milk of magnesia for underarm odor to yams for hot flashes.

    Buy the book! It is a cheap investment compared to Dr. bills. I will be come your first line of defense. Not all “cures” work for everyone but something will work for everyone. Even doctors buy it to save them time.
