This resource delivers just what the patient ordered: recommendations for relieving and curing hundreds of the most common ailments--without prescription drugs--from respected doctors.

While thoroughly authoritative, the book offers a wealth of refreshingly simple and innovative recommendations, including: 12 all-natural fast-acting techniques for easing acid indigestion 22 "new skin" remedies for eradicating acne Pointers on eating protein-rich foods to boost memory An eye-opening look at dietary supplements for combating cataracts This unique medical reference also features a mini crash-course in mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, tips on taking a pulse and recognizing a dangerous reading, and step-by-step guidelines for when a child has ingested something that could be poisonous-and how to avoid such a situation. Comprehensive, on target, and reliable, Home Doctor is like having a personal M.D. who makes house calls.
