For this holiday season, we are offering a treasure trove of remedies! The People’s Pharmacy Quick & Handy Home Remedies, published by National Geographic, brings together a great collection of simple, affordable options for treating common conditions ranging from allergies and arthritis to nail fungus, restless legs syndrome and wound care.
In its 264 pages you will find simple descriptions of three evidence-based diet plans that you can put to use now for better health in the coming year. Learn how to follow the DASH diet to lower blood pressure, the Mediterranean diet for a healthier heart and brain, or the low-carb diet to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Would you like recipes for the diet you choose? Quick & Handy Home Remedies contains a number of recipes contributed by expert guests who do nutrition research, including Dr. Jeffrey Blumberg and Dr. Helen Rasmussen of the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center at Tufts University, Dr. Mark Liponis and Dr. Walter Willett of the School of Public Health at Harvard University.
For even more fabulous recipes, we include a special offer on Recipes & Remedies from The People’s Pharmacy. It contains 174 pages of food-based remedies like a beet juice smoothie to lower blood pressure, homemade thyme cough syrup or virgin raisins for joint pain (a way of getting the benefits of gin-soaked raisins without the gin). Plus there are two weeks of menus along with recipes for breakfast, main dishes, side dishes and dessert. What a treat, and all for just 50% of the regular price for Recipes and Remedies when you buy it together with The People’s Pharmacy Quick & Handy Home Remedies.
Thank you for making this information available in such a straightforward way that is easy to use. I bought sets for our married children to use and enjoy the ones I have as well. You make so much good information available in many different ways and these books will be used often. Now, I just need someone to cook up some of those great recipes!
I saw your article in the Charlotte Observer about your books and ordered the Holiday Remedy Bundle for myself. I have enjoyed reading but haven’t tried any recipes yet. I’ve always preferred to handle things naturally. I plan on looking into the other books you offer. Thank you for compiling all this helpful information.
I got the first set for myself. It was so informative I ordered 4 more sets for my married children. They love it too.
I have one of these books, and love it. Such useful information! I look forward to the newsletters and newspaper articles and any program they produce. Thanks for keeping us informed. I plan on buying the bundle for home and a gift for a daughter.
These books are EXCELLENT!! I bought myself this bundle, and like it so well that I’m planning on buying the set for my neighbor for her birthday and my Mom for Christmas!
Very good information and easy to find any subject. Always enjoy newsletters and look forward to them every week.
The books arrived in my mail only two days ago, but I couldn’t resist them. I’ve skimmed the recipe book and read about one-third of the remedies book. I’m a rabid fan of The People’s Pharmacy and these two books decidedly live up to the high quality of the semi-weekly newsletters. I hope they’ll still be available when Christmas rolls around because they would make great gifts for my entire family. Thanks to the Graedons for producing them!
I have been thoroughly enjoying these books. They’re so good to have in the house for reference.
Lots of good information. Also enjoy all newsletters.
As a long time reader of People’s Pharmacy in my local newspaper and online, and having tried some of the suggestions, I ordered the 2 books just to see if anything new and interesting was available that I hadn’t read on the website before. Like my daily newspaper, nothing beats printed matter for information. Yes, the internet is quicker, but I just enjoy printed matter suited to my interests. I skimmed the first few pages for information, and found many I hadn’t read before. I haven’t tried any of the actual cooking recipes yet, but I will. For those that don’t feel like searching the internet for suggestions on how to cure what ails you, these are worth a try. As I’ve posted on People’s Pharmacy website, folks should realize these suggestions may not work for everyone. But in lieu of prescription medications, they are worth a try. My opinion: worth the money.
