Where To Find The Oldest Cure
By C. Norman Shealy, MD, PhD
Lifelong Books, 25.99, 432 pages
This is a book your grandmother would appreciate. The Health Remedies Sourcebook covers a wide variety of different types of cures as well as diseases to cure. Ayurvedic, homeopathic, and other techniques are discussed, as well as how those techniques work. There is the standard caveat to work in tandem with someone with experience in the appropriate technique as well as to seek appropriate medical attention if the condition persists, making this book a great place to start but not the end-all-be-all of medical books.
This book is the chicken soup with advanced options type of sourcebook. The writing is clear and direct, with terms properly explained instead of the usual clear-as-mud writing you see in some nonstandard medical texts; if the recipe is done wrong then it is the fault of the reader and not the writer. Although this book is the stepping stone of a number of different techniques, it is precisely that and makes no pretensions about it; that alone makes the book rate high. If you are looking for a good source of medical recipes for alternative medicine, this book is a great place to start.
