The trend towards healthy living and the use of natural products is now widespread, and more people than ever before are turning to homoeopathy as an alternative to conventional medicine. Rather than administering drugs to attack the symptoms of disease, homoeopathy aims to stimulate the body’s own healing forces to combat the deep-seated causes. This guide to the principles and practice of homoeopathy tells readers how they can treat themselves and their families. It explains “casetaking” and prescribing for such ailments as colds, digestive problems, headaches, cystitis and menstrual cramps; and how to administer first-aid for such injuries as burns and fractures. Instructions accompanying each set of medicines advise when outside medical help should be sought.

Most of the suggested herbs and other preparations are readily available from herb dealers and health food stores, or online, and are inexpensive alternatives to conventional medicine.
I have used many, if not most of the suggested remedies, myself, with success. Others are remedies that I have known others to use with success, and still others were carefully researched.
Many of the herbs suggested are not just inexpensive, but free, if collected from fields and roadsides—and sometimes even from your yard. Many herbs, too, are easily grown in the garden.
Directions are included for preparing infusions, decoctions, tinctures, syrups, ointments, and salves. Specific directions are included for making several of the most useful remedies: mullein oil, black walnut hull tincture, Echinacea tincture, wild cherry cough syrup, slippery elm tea, elderberry juice, elecampane syrup, castor oil pack, camphorated oil, balm of Gilead bud ointment, and skin creams and other skin applications.
All these preparations—and many more for which general directions are given—are easily made at home. These directions make it easy to make tinctures, syrups, and other medicinal preparations that would be very costly to purchase–and they are fun to make at home!
