There are a few things I think are not considered correct anymore though but those are only small details like ingesting fibers in order to relieve constipation. Many doctors think now that too much fiber can actually irritate the intestine and therefore cause more constipation. Eating soy is also something not all the experts advise and it does seems that one needs to be careful with the kind of soy one eats, especially if it is not fermented. Milk products to prevent osteoporosis... the jury is not out on that either but it used to be an old belief. The chapter on cholesterol is maybe not accurate either as more and more experts are starting to back off the theory that cholesterol is bad for you and that there is bad and good cholesterol. Anyway, the women who live the longest seem to be the ones with the higher cholesterol levels. After having read quite a lot on this subject I think that this cholesterol hysteria is something invented in our lifetime and which will have damaged the health of a lot of people needlessly! Eating ten servings a day of fruit and vegetables???? Wow, that is a lot of fruit and vegetables..... and there are a few more things I can't agree with but this is a book worth buying anyway, reason why I still gave it 4 stars!

DK is my favorite publisher of well pretty much anything they make.
In every book they put out, this one included the reading material so so easy to understand and they always do pictures with their stuff.
This book numbers each remedy it has who cu makes it better to skim through or just read one by one. As it says on in the front you have recipes from health all the way to pets. Even better these are all natural!
A few sections to mention is acne, skin and hair, per treats, sinusitis, bath salts, body scrubs, natural air freshener, laundry soap and depression. In the back of the book you will find a index that can help you find just what your looking for!
I would imagine this makes a great gift along with some essential oils and dried herbs.
I had this book 6 years ago I ordered 3 more off of amazon for friends and family.
It has everything in it that I don't have to look for in other books.
Don't need a Dr. this book has it all for me and more on pets n house
I love this book and its a must book for most families.
Giving it for gifts this year and next year....
