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.
