My favorite reference book so far

I've bought 3 or 4 herbal books this year and this one is by far my favorite. It is easy to find exactly what you need and simple to understand. I love that it tells you the pharmaceutical medication & its side effects along with the herbal remedy w/ its side effects/cautions. It also has a separate section that explains what all each herb can help with. This is the perfect book for anyone starting out learning herbal medicine. Just this past week, i got bit by around 50 ants and was in need of itch and swelling relief. I first tried all the store bought products in my closet- they didnt help. Then I consulted this Herbal Drugstore book- the herbal remedies in this book worked 100 times better than the name brand insect bite products you can buy. Im so glad I found this book.

My new go-to herbal book

This was the first book I purchased off this site and is so far my favorite. I own several herbal remedy books but this one is the best. It gives detailed information on types of herbs and methods as well as an excess of information. I purchase this in “very good condition”, it arrived at my door in 6 days and was pristine. Well done


Este libro es el mejor libro que he visto en el uso de hierbas, realmente lo recomiendo

This is one of the best home herbal reference books!

I really LOVE this book, and I have a lot of books on herbal medicine. What I like about the herbal drugstore is how it gives both the typical prescription drugs for common ailments, and the herbal alternatives. It also describes how the herbs are supposed to work (if it is known.) That alone sets this book apart from most other herbal references. This would be a terrific first book on the subject for anyone's home library and I think it adds a lot to my shelf on herbs. There are good drawings of the herbs, sections on vitamins, excercises, nutrition, combining herbs with prescription medicines (some can interfere; tell your physician) and much more. Yet the book has a very well-designed format, clear print, good organization and is chatty and readable. What more could you ask for? If I could give this book 10 stars, I would. It is THAT good,

Herbal Healing and Kitchen-Cabinet Cures

Since the beginning of time, people have crushed herbs in a mortar and pestle to extract the healing properties and to mix herbal remedies. Herbs are in fact the best alternatives to over-the-counter medications and they have fewer side effect. I love the fact that regular kitchen herbs and spices can be very beneficial, so I try to add them into the foods I love when appropriate. In this book you will find out which ordinary kitchen spices you can use for health benefits. So, which herbs work better than drugs? Well, I love Echinacea for cold season. They also recommend "astragalus" which is a herb. It boosts your body's resistance to cold, flu and other viruses. Studies have proven that it has antiviral and antibacterial properties. Unlike Echinacea, you can take astragalus everyday. Echinacea is for seasonal use and this book does have some warnings you will want to read. You will also find out: Which herbs kill viruses that antibiotics don't! Which wildflower can stop excruciating migraines! (Feverfew tincture/not dried leaves) How to improve your vision. (Bilberries) How to recover from the flu in half the time. (Elderberries) Which kitchen spice you can use for inflammation. (Turmeric) Which herb relieves menopausal symptoms. (Black Cohosh) How to relieve arthritis pain. (Boswellia, Stinging Nettle and Evening Primrose) How to unclog your arteries. How to grow your own medicinal herbs. How to heal your child's earaches. To lift your spirits. (Try lavender- my favorite) How to naturally deal with diabetes! (Fenugreek) Once you find which herbs you need, you can also look for tea in your health store or buy bottles of the specific herb. You can also find herbs to treat varicose veins, halt macular degeneration, and cure gout with cherries. You will also read why you should not take Tums for calcium. Some interesting information on "chocolate," and more information than I can list. This book will help you to solve over 100 health problems. This is a perfect gift for a friend who is interested in healthy alternatives. Herbs, essential oils and other natural remedies keep me out of the doctor's office. ~The Rebecca Review

Easy to read and informational

This book has provided me with information about herbal therapy that I might not have received from other sources. I have found the book easy to read and extremely informative. I have tried some of the remedies that they have recommended and they have worked for me! I have brought this book into work because many of my co-workers were curious to find out about it. Some of them have indicated that they will purchase it for their own use. The alphabetical listing of ailments is one of the most helpful things about the book.
