Not every minor health issue needs to be immediately addressed by a doctor. Common health issues—like colds, coughs, minor cuts, and sore throats—can often be remedied with a few simple items most people have around the house.
In the Mayo Clinic Book of Home Remedies, not only will you get answers to the most common medical questions—like “Can herbs really treat sleep problems and digestive issues?” and “What is the best way to treat a minor burn?"—the book also provides simple and safe treatment options you can try from the comfort of your own home.
While this guide is not intended to replace the advice of your doctor or other health care professional, it will serve as the first step toward recognizing and treating the symptoms of common health conditions, like:
· High blood pressure
· Motion sickness
· Stomach flu
· Pink eye
· Bug bites
· And more!
Plus, learn how to identify symptoms that require emergency care, and get tips and tricks for performing emergency first aid.
Along with minor health issues, the Mayo Clinic Book of Home Remedies also evaluates more serious chronic illnesses and diseases—like fibromyalgia, diabetes, and osteoporosis—and gives a realistic look at what actions you can take at home to help minimize unwanted symptoms.
Now updated with the latest medical research and recommendations from leading health experts at Mayo Clinic, the Mayo Clinic Book of Home Remedies is a trusted, evergreen resource for discovering the causes, symptoms, preventive measures, and at-home treatment options for more than 100 common health issues.
