A fabulous guide to curing oneself naturally using herbs. Not all the remedies work, but some do. I am a particular fan of using garlic and golden seal at her recommendation. Read full review
I have loved this book for years. It is now worn and tattered and heald tojgether with hope but I still use it as my first go to. And it is easy to read. Funny stories accompany useful info.
