Joe and Terry Graedon

People who listen to The People’s Pharmacy radio show or read the newspaper columns find home remedies fascinating. Most people want to know whether a specific remedy or dietary supplement works or not. But that’s not quite enough for everyone. 

What Works and Why?

Many health professionals and other people are skeptical that vinegar with a high-carb snack could keep blood sugar from spiking. They doubt that drinking tart cherry juice at bedtime would do anything to speed the onset of sleep. They don’t believe that herbal hibiscus tea could help control blood pressure. To them, reports that cocoa can ward off cognitive decline are suspect.

The intellectually curious also want to know why a particular remedy might work. Very often the scientific research to answer this question is lacking. Recently, though, Joe and Terry Graedon have uncovered a number of scientific explanations for some favorite home remedies.
