Reviewed by Carla Trueheart for Readers' Favorite

I was very impressed with the level of information presented in Home Remedies Express: Know How to Cure the Most Common Health Issues Using Natural Home Remedies. The book begins by discussing why the contents will be useful, such as when a pharmacy is closed and you need a quick cure, and how natural remedies have always been used and passed down through generations. This is very true, as I’m sure we have all been in situations where a common health issue comes up and we are not close to a pharmacy or it’s the middle of the night. From there, author Katherine Kelley discusses common ailments such as diarrhea, fatigue, tooth problems, and more. There are activities such as flash cards in the book, examples and benefits of natural remedies listed at the end. The bulk of the book contains natural remedies, such as using ginger for heartburn or honey for a wound. Most common ailments are covered.

I have always been interested in natural ways to remedy a health problem, particularly using plants and herbs. Home Remedies Express: Know How to Cure the Most Common Health Issues Using Natural Home Remedies covers a lot of this, and in addition offers other ways to help in the form of advice. For example, you could use a herb for insomnia, but author Katherine Kelley, with KnowIt Express, also guides you through a nightly routine that might help with insomnia issues. There is also a section on growing useful herbs and plants that I found helpful. And who knew that cobwebs could help you when out in the wilderness? All of this and more is addressed in the book, and I recommend it to those interested in this field.

I am a stay at home, homeschooling mom to two young girls who are very, very active. We are constantly on the go, and because of that we are always introducing ourselves to new experiences and also germs. It is very important to my husband and I that we not only lead a healthy active lifestyle but that we encourage our girls to do so as well. I have tried at different times to learn about home remedies but I have often been discouraged because I found them to be complex or difficult to follow. I could never find a quick, easy, user friendly guide. A friend of mine recently recommended, Home Remedies Express by Katherine Kelly and KnowIt Express.

Home Remedies Express has a few major points that really sold me. 1.) The layout of the book makes it really easy to find exactly what you are looking for. This was important to me, because honestly I don't have a lot of time to be flipping through a book looking for something. I needed/wanted a quick reference guide. 2.) I like that they explain the different ailments, and what possible cause are. I feel that this is very important because now not only am I going to be able to find remedies, but also find what may be causing the problem and eliminate it completely. 3.) I found the remedies that I've tried actually work. I have tried several with my family and they have all worked with great success.

If you are interested in Home Remedies and improving your health naturally, I reccomend checking this book out.

In “Home Remedies Express: Know How to Cure the Most Common Health Issues Using Natural Home Remedies” author Katherine Kelley presents illness and ailment as a part of life, and home remedies as a cure. Kelley later goes on to explain that, sometimes, not only is some sort of mediation needed by healthcare professionals but also that the sooner home remedies are applied, the better they tend to work; a wise disclaimer.

Explanation of what constitutes a home remedy is provided, and this explanation leads to an idea of something similar to, but a little different from natural or homeopathic cures. Practical information that will get readers on their way to identifying ailments, and how to obtain the resources for the home remedies that will cure these ailments, are provided in the opening chapters, and Kelley also gets into best practices. Best practices that include common sense tips like making sure to wash any produce you may purchase to aid in curing something like diarrhea, as well as practical advice on things like preparing yourself to use home remedies by knowing the cures for illnesses you might suffer from often so you’re ready for their return.

Further along, the author provides information on, and opens up the idea of, things like integrating home remedies with modern medicine and ways to tackle ailments related to the outdoors when you’re stuck outdoors; on a camping trip for instance.

This book is not only informative, but engaging in the way that it is easy to relate to; bringing up occurrences likely to be familiar to readers, such as being told that your grandmother used to do a particular thing to cure a particular illness. Kelley even calls upon popular culture references in the form of mentioning commercials from now as well as decades ago in the 80s that we’ve likely all seen, many times.

Not just telling, but teaching readers about how to use home remedies in their everyday life is certainly a goal here, and with exercises provided to help readers to commit to memory the cures they’ll likely need to know, this is far from a passive read.

There are no real negatives to speak of. I did catch a typo, in the form of a letters missing from a word that resulted in “showering” becoming “showing”, but that could happen to anyone and things like that do happen all the time. Every now and then, something slips through the cracks in editing.

I would highly recommend this book to someone interested in the subject matter; no matter if they’ve read similar content before or are just beginning to show an interest in naturalistic approaches to health. With lists of common ailments, symptoms, and causes that can be addressed with home remedies as well as a useful shopping list and links to further reading in the Kindle edition, this could become a manual that you as a reader consult time and time again.

Anyone who has ever dealt with the common cold, flu, headaches, or even insomnia will appreciate this book’s simple approach to treating oneself at home. While Home Remedies Express is a simple book that touches on some very basic remedies, it is a good starting place.
One thing the author did well in Chapter 3, is point the reader to outside resources offering more detailed information on uses for some of the ingredients needed to aid in healing oneself. Additionally, the author suggests use of flashcards to assist in becoming more familiar with ingredients, their combinations and for which ailment each remedy is to be used.

From simple recipes one can easily make at home to tackle common ailments, to easily applied lifestyle suggestions to avoid the ailments completely, this little book covers a respectable amount of information in its sixty-seven pages. However, the information keeps going beyond simple home remedies and extends to ideas for planting and growing one’s own herbs, fruits and vegetables, as well as how best to integrate home remedies with the use of modern medicine. Finally, the author provides one final exercise to encourage the reader to continue the quest for natural ways to resolve ailments at home, by using the knowledge acquired in this simple book to recognize similarities and overlapping functions of ingredients and apply them in new and useful ways.

The one section that did not really fit, in my opinion, related to finding and using outdoor remedies for use when camping or hiking. While the concept in and of itself is intriguing, the application fell short. There were no useful suggestions, tips or instructions – other than to do the research oneself and figure it out on one’s own. Perhaps it would have been better to leave this chapter out and save it for another book, wherein the author could better expand on the subject matter.

Overall, Home Remedies Express is exactly what the title claims, a quick and easy guide to home remedies for common ailments. If looking for a more comprehensive guide, this is not it - but if new to exploring this subject, this is a perfect place to begin.
