I’m so glad I purchased this book. I have high blood pressure and high cholesterol and was looking for natural remedies. I immediately changed my eating habits and am now feeling much better. This book is very informative about the impact of your food choices on your overall health.
It is easy to read. I follow some of the treatments, and they work. My friends and I really appreciate using natural products. Thank you!
I’ve been meaning to buy this book for quite some time. I’m glad I finally did. It is an excellent resource and anyone who is aware of the side effects of numerous drugs on the market should check this book’s contents first. You may still need a prescription drug but you may not. It is definitely worth a look.
Excellent — common sense — easy to read — thank you Joe and Terry Graedon.
Liked the old book. Is this current one updated with new information?
I originally, bought this book 13 years ago.
I have been waiting for the updated and revised version. So much of the current research — over the past 12 years — may not be covered in this 2006 publication version.
Is there a date set for a revised edition?
Your “easy to remember each part” book entitled “Quick and Handy Home Remedies” recently saved my life.
I had made a habit of reading from it at bedtime and easily memorized a part each night. I feel I can now quickly react to urgencies and emergencies as they arise from day to day.
I own and love your book, Best Choices from The People’s Pharmacy. It has been a help to both to me and my husband over the years. However, it was published in 2006, so I’m wondering if this current book has updated information?
I’m sure the good old folk remedies remain the same and are effective for many of us. Does this new book have new information and new things learned? Thanks for your unique contribution to everyone’s health! – Linda Collins Thomas
So far, I have tried 6 of the remedies in this book. You have not let me down. A win every time. Every family should own this book.
It is great to rely on treatments that do not include pharmaceuticals. The fewer meds, the better. If an RN is seeking scientific backing for these remedies that work, he or she needs to get a clue by the name of this site. It is not The Doctor’s Pharmacy. Scientific, indeed!
This is a must-have book for any household.
Excellent reference book to have on hand.
I am still exploring all the information in the book but so far have found it to be a good source of useful information. I do wish there were more detailed information on what are the scientific basis for some of the information as well as how helpful some people have found the suggestions. As a Registered Nurse, the why & how are important to me.
The book title tell is all! For me and my family members, the book has provided solutions for common ailments as well as information on other maladies not previously considered. The book is a source of wisdom and helpfulness that I will always reach for when questions need answers. Thank you for this publication.
We have not yet gotten through the entire book but we were very impressed with the contents and easy to read (by ailment) suggestions for treatment. We think this will be a constant source of information based upon our “ills”.
Excellent source for solutions to common ailments that every one has.
I love the book. I use the mustard for leg cramps often and it always works, also the cough (vicks on the feet) which also works. I also tried the raisins before bedtime and only had to get up once. Thank you so much.
I purchased as a gift but found myself asking for help. Now I need one for myself. It is a great book.
Within the week I cured my friend of night time coughing and removed a wart with duct tape!
I always have read your column in the Sunday paper and I love my book.
I found it very interesting and useful so I purchased another copy for my friend. Not sure when was the last time this book was updated. It would be great if new information could be added on a regular basis and perhaps offer discount to repeated customers…
