For those of you that missed its release last October 2010 at full price, the Mayo Book of Home Remedies is now available starting as low as $10.98 at Amazon.com. But before you run right over there, check out this Fox News segment featuring Dr. Phil Hagen from The Mayo Clinic who talks about some of the home remedies that are featured in the book. My wife bought the book for me last year so, check out my feelings on the book below. The Mayo Book of Home Remedies is good but… it may not be what you want.
Mayo book of home remedies- price starting as low as $10.98
The Mayo book of home remedies is intended as a very simplified quick resource for common everyday ailments, illnesses and treatments in case of emergencies. It’s also intended as a way to save hundreds in medical bills per year by being able to treat yourself or a family member without running to a doctor. But there’s not much in the way of herbal or homeopathic remedies so- if that is what you are looking for than this book is not for you.
Much of what’s contained is “common sense” but, there were a few remedies that I wasn’t familiar with listed. The book ended up in our bathroom as reading material, as many of the subjects became topics at the dinner table with the family. I found it to be a wonderful education for the teenagers who were able to gain a good basic understanding of home remedies especially, knowledge of what to do in case of an emergency. Now at a great price, The Mayo Clinic Book of Home Remedies covers everything from acne,irritable bowel syndrome to what to do if someone is having a heart attack.
