"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Joan and Lydia Wilen have a remedy for just about any ailment. One year they sent me a very thoughtful (and useful) holiday gift -- vitamin C tablets to prevent a cold, herbal tea, a joke book because "laughter is the best medicine," and a small teddy bear to love. As they explained to me, that is all I needed to get through the winter.
Picking up where they left off with Chicken Soup & Other Folk Remedies, the Wilens have included in this book some of the more esoteric healing substances to be found at health-food stores and herb farms, even furriers and sand pits. (They write, for example, that yucca is good for arthritis and flaxseed for constipation.) A wide range of common and not-so-common ailments are addressed, including asthma and back pain, body odor and gallbladder disorders, hair, weight and sleep problems. The authors' style is folksy, and they emphasize that they are merely reporting on practices, not endorsing them. All in all, this makes for an intriguing collectionand the worst thing the remedies will do is nothing.
