Home Remedy – a medicine made with ingredients available at home.
It may sound simple, but for anyone who’s tried to make a poultice at home to relieve some aches, knows it can get really complicated.
That’s why I put together a short and sweet list of the best books and resources to read if you’re looking to learn more about home remedies. Trial and error is going to be a part of the learning process, but you never want to make too many errors when it comes to your health. The following references will give you a strong fundamental understanding of the natural vitamins, minerals, and herbs that go into home remedies and they will show you how to make and use the remedies correctly.
I’ll start out with the #1 book on my list, and one that I have been referencing for years:
Prescription for Nutritional Healing by Phyllis A. Balch CNC
In almost every vitamin store I’ve ever gone to, I’ve seen this book, and for good reason. It has almost every supplement you could possibly think about using. It includes detailed explanations about each supplement, how it works, and what disease processes it works best on. Before you start mixing and making remedies, this is a great place to start to understand the basics behind natural medicine. You can read it cover to cover or use it as a great resource to learn more about a particular vitamin, mineral, or herb.
