The Home Herbal: A Handbook of Simple Remedies - Barbara Griggs

Pan, 1983, Paperback ..
Condition: Good.

From the cover: “As more and more people turn to alternative medicines and therapies, here is an authoritative and practical guide to herbal remedies, what they are, where to get them and how to use them. There are no claims for miraculous cures for serious conditions that need professional medical attention, but there is a sensible and systematic guide to herbal remedies for a whole range of ailments where conventional medicine can often fail to provide relief or produces unpleasant side-effects and for those minor medical problems such as sunburn and hangovers which can most benefit from natural gentle treatment by herbs. The book is organised alphabetically under the medical problems from acne to whooping cough, and herbal remedies are suggested under each of those headings. In addition there are chapters on the preparations of herbal medicines, where to find your herbs and how to stock your family herbal medicine cupboard with an appendix that lists the common names of herbs alongside their Latin botanical names.”
