Peppermint, lemon juice, rosemary, and turmeric. Yoga, deep breathing, meditation, and social engagement. From herbs and foods to bodywork and lifetime habits, along with ginger, pomegranate, acupressure, and more. These are the healing ways of yesteryear, and they still work today. Now they join forces in this beautiful, practical book, packed with the power of nature and the ease of finding remedies on hand.
Created with a nationally recognized advisory board of medical professionals and leading figures in natural healing, National Geographic's Complete Guide to Natural Home Remedies combines the authority of science with age-old folklore and tried-and-true cures--from mint tea for stomach-ache to onion juice for a bee sting, from using baking soda as a kitchen cleanser to finding quiet in a crowded world. Section on healing traditions and best life practices from around the world offer readers further guidance to good health, from sleep and exercise to healing foods and meditation.
Photographs, recipes, cautions, and quick tips on page after page make this both a handy look-up reference and a fascinating browse to keep close at hand for years to come.
