The Doctor’s Book of Home Remedies: Thousands of Tips and Techniques Anyone Can Use to Heal Everyday Health Problems by the Editors of Prevention Magazine is a wonderful book on classic, inexpensive home remedies covering some of the most difficult and elusive medical problems to treat successfully.

For instance, the editors cite numerous ways to handle allergies. Examples include air conditioning the house, the use of a dehumidifier, wiping down humid areas with Clorox, isolating pets from the bedroom, sealing the bedding with plastic, using throw rugs, washing mattress pads in hot water, and using synthetic pillows.

The editors cite numerous home remedies to alleviate angina, although you should consult with the cardiologist often on this matter. The editors recommend taking an aspirin a day, tilting the head of the bed up three to four inches, smoking cessation, eating a diet with 10% of calories from fat and finally taking a stress test by the cardiologist in order to determine the types of exercises most suitable to oxygenate the body and reduce angina pain. In actuality, exercise trained muscles can pull more oxygen out of arterial blood helping to alleviate the grossest symptoms.

The editors cite numerous ways to combat sinusitis including the use of steam, bathing the nostrils daily in a saline solution with baking soda, sipping herbal teas like fenugreek, anise, and sage, as well as utilizing garlic, horseradish and Cajun spice on foods.

The Doctor’s Book of Home Remedies is an excellent resource when used in conjunction with your professional medical providers. Each chapter contains an exhaustive list of medical advisers from prestigious colleges, universities, and noted private medical practitioners.
