I found this book at a garage sale 20 years ago and everything I've tried in it has worked. I only have holistic books that date before 1980 due to the fact that the FDA started limiting what was legal and illegal to publish in America for holistic medicine. I believe because of the pharmaceutical companies financial gain. This book is a trusted source

Penny Royal's reverse look-ups are a great education

One invaluable thing about this book is the reverse look-ups. In one section you can look up any given herb and see the list of what ailments it can ease. In another section you can look up a health problem and read the list of herbs that are useful for that symptom or illness. This style of reverse reference is a godsend when you're under pressure with a sick child. Another advantage of this book is that it gave me an almost effortless familiarity of herbs and their uses that has served me well in the long run. It's not the kind of book you "read" per se. It's the kind of book you leaf through for answers whenever there's a health problem in your family. Over time, simply by repeated exposure to the herbs and symptoms lists, it all begins to stick in your mind and you become more adept without really noticing. This book was a solid gold asset to me all through my daughter's childhood. Rather than rely on doctors to feed her antibiotics and drugs, I raised her on dietary adjustments for allergies and fed her herbs and raw honey for illness. (She was a lamb about taking what to me were horrible concoctions - as long as I opened the capsules and mixed the contents in honey. I used raw honey for its antibiotic properties.) While this might not be the book you'd use to deepen an existing knowledge of herbs, it's the one you'll call a true friend when it comes to quickly prescribing herbal remedies for yourself and your family. The nurse who monitored our slow but steady progress as I painstakingly healed my daughter of chronic ear infection told me that most parents just let the doctors do the operation to install the grommet - sometimes repeatedly. She was impressed at what natural remedies can do for the stereotypical childhood illness. I told her I owed my powers of healing to this book.

Excellent Help

This is the book I refer to first- before Prescription for Nutritional Healing, before the dr, before any other book. This is the book I turn to first. There are answers for many of the common ailments and questions in here. A great reference, particularly if you are trying to save a little bit of money or go natural before using medicines.

It is so helpful to a young man living on his own.

It's like when I was living at home everything that my mother ever did form me all in one book. It's like having mom with me at all times eventho I don't live with her at this time. All of her remedies are listed in this book. It's like an Encylopedia of help. Thank you Penny (like my own mother)Royal.

And every mother needs this book...

Have used this book since it was first published. Excellent book on basic medicinal herb use in the home.
