HomeMade Medicine Book Review: home remedies for all types of illness
How to prepare remedies at home from commonly available ingredients
I have collect all resources I can find about medicinal herbs and herbal medicine. When I first saw the website for this book I was skeptical. I thought it will be just another collection of well known home herbal remedies.
The book surprised me. The recipes included were very simple, most of the ingredients were already in my kitchen or I could buy them in a local supermarket or fruit and vegetable store.
First, I tried a homemade moisturizing lotion. You know how it is with creams and lotions you buy from shops – they smell very nice and feel great when you apply them, but the effect is gone in a couple of hours. This simple lotion made my skin very smooth and silky and it stayed this way even the next day. I guess fresh ingredients work much better than creams full of chemical. I have dry skin so I used the recipe for dry skin, but the book offers recipes of skin care products for oily skin as well.
However, beauty treatments are not actually the main part of the book. It offers surprisingly simple and effective herbal recipes for many common conditions. Here are only a few:
– Common colds (yes it actually work, not just make the symptoms go away)
– Hair loss
Charles Silverman (the author of this book) is a doctor from Miami. He specializes in herbal medicine. Throughout his work he traveled a lot and found many natural remedies people use around the world. He tried them all and selected ones where there is scientific proof that they give positive effect.
Now, don’t misunderstand – Charles doesn’t sell any herbal remedies on that website. Instead his book teaches how to prepare them at home, from commonly available ingredients.
Buying readily made herbal medicine is convenient, but you can never be sure if it is made properly. Also really good herbal remedies have a short shelf life; they lose their effectiveness after only a few days. This is the main reason why I always prefer to make my own herbal medicine.
Recipes in Charles book really work, and they are simple enough that any average person can make this homemade medicine. I wished this book were available in a printed version, but unfortunately it isn’t. You can only get an electronic copy. I found it very useful, and hope you will too.
