This handbook seeks to put the confusing world of remedies into perspective, informing the reader what works, what doesn't, what's dangerous and what is a waste of time and money.
It avoids jargon, explaining the difference between herbal teas, tinctures and tablets, and how to use them safely and effectively.
There are tips on what to take for everything, from the common cold and flu to tension and headaches.
There is guidance on stocking a herbal medicine cabinet and on making a travelling first-aid kit with the ten most useful remedies to have on hand for everyday problems such as an upset stomach, nausea, heartburn and sore throats.
