Rachel Weaver has earned the credential of of Master Herbologist. Weaver states that many of the drugs on the market have bad side effects or can be very costly when there may be better, more organic options available. You can save
money by taking care of most of your medical needs yourself. She qualifies that with a disclaimer that in case of emergencies one should always seek medical attention.
This book has a comprehensive listing of herbal remedies that you can use to treat ailments--everything from Abscesses to High Blood Pressure. Some of these can be treated with everyday household products such as cayenne or apple cider vinegar. Others may require more obscure herbs which you can either grow yourself or find at recommended sources. It's hard to say how effective they are without trying them but she includes accounts of those who have tried many of them with success.
A well-written and thorough book. This book is a good option for those who have limited medical care, or no medical insurance or of for those who are leary of the side effects of synthetic drugs.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
