Really enjoy reading this book, which pushed me to break out my year-old homeopathy kit again. A day after starting the book, I burned myself on the oven door while cooking and found no burn ointment in my cabinet, so I referenced burns in the index and found that while I'd given away my remedy specific for burns I still had Cantharis, a specific for sunburn, so I gave my self 2 quick doses before bed.
At that time, I had constant pain, moderate redness and small blistering. By morning I had no pain, no blistering, and only pale pinkness at the burn site. Let me underscore that my kit is 45 years old. How's that for longevity?

Definitely going to read through this reference and keep it handy! Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Modern medical training and more tried and true methods don't mix well. The author is a nurse and while she's owned and worked in health food stores she doesn't take alternative measures seriously and thinks of them as inferior and only good for simple common ailments, nothing serious or capable of replacing modern drugs and surgery.
If you don't buy into big pharma and tend to enjoy doing the impossible as far as science is concerned perhaps it's only big business dictating medicine these day's this book might make you extremely frustrated with fence riding and no faith in what she thinks she's practicing.

Trust your instincts! I collect books like this, and Your Natural Medicine Cabinet is my new favorite, the one I turn to first. It's easy to find the information and the book is actually a pleasure to read. It's the only reference book I've found on natural healing that you could sit down and read from cover to cover. The only limitation - and the author is upfront about it - is that it does not try to be encyclopedic.
She says she is trying to keep the book manageable and not overwhelming. She gives just one page of suggestions for each health condition. A bigger and more comprehensive will have more information, but for some people - especially people new to natural healing - it can be hard to decide where to start when you have too many recommendations. Even though it is presented as an introductory book, it has quite a few suggestions that I have never come across, even though I have been studying natural healing on my own for 20 years now.
Most books like this cover supplements, herbs and diet. A few add in homeopathy, flower essences and cell salts. Your Natural Medicine Cabinet includes these approaches plus it even has tips from chiropractors, craniosacral practitioners and acupuncturists that are suitable for home care.
It also tells you where to go for more information. It has lots of recommendations for books, websites, and YouTube videos. I recommend this book if you are new to natural healing. If you are already knowledgeable, I would get it anyway, because you'll pick up some useful tips.
Also this book makes an ideal gift when you're trying to introduce friends and family to natural healing, because it's so much fun to read. What a treasure trove of tips and resources! This book reads like your best friend is an expert on health and natural remedies, and she is sitting at your kitchen table sharing ideas and tips and telling stories based on her experiences with clients and colleagues.
She speaks conversationally, with asides and funny remarks.

She mentions books, web sites and other resources. You come away totally inspired about creating the best health possible for yourself and your family. I read it cover to cover, including all of the 60 conditions, because I didn't want to miss anything. There is much new to me, even though I've used integrated health care with natural and "alternative" methods for more than 20 years. This is a new, retitled and expanded twice as long version of A Healer in Every Home by same author. This is an easy read book for homeopathy questions.
There are really good suggestions and information that I have used and am grateful to have found. This book is exactly what I needed for a reference guide to natural remedies. The book covers a great many conditions and gives excellent advice on how to treat them.
The descriptions of the homeopathic remedies and how to use them is especially helpful. Oftentimes combining psychotherapy, medication and other treatment modalities give better results. Exercise may have biochemical affects via release of endorphins and other neurotransmitters. Often exercise is done in groups or with a trainer and the social contact may be critical. A meta-analysis of 80 studies regardless of their methodological quality showed that exercise decreased depression scores significantly when compared to controls. The antidepressant effect occurred with all types of regular exercise, independent of sex or age, and it increased with the duration of therapy.
Another meta-analysis looked at 72 potentially relevant studies. Only 14 studies fulfilled the inclusion criteria. There were important methodological weaknesses; randomization was adequately concealed in only three studies, intention to treat analysis was undertaken in only two, and assessment of outcome was blinded in only one. When compared with no treatment, exercise significantly reduced symptoms of depression. The effect size was significantly greater in those trials with shorter follow up. Martinsen and Stephens identified 8 experimental exercise-intervention trials in clinically depressed patients, and exercise was associated with reductions in depression scores in all of the studies.
After 4 months patients in all three groups exhibited significant improvement; the proportion of remitted participants was comparable across the three treatment conditions. After 10 months, however, remitted subjects in the exercise group had significantly lower relapse rates than subjects in the medication group. It is often hard to manage elderly patients who are depressed. Regular physical exercise in the elderly is associated with decreased depressive scores.
In one study those moderately depressed elderly subjects who were randomly allocated to walking exercises, showed a significant decrease in depression compared to controls at 6 weeks. Another study examined 32 elderly depressed patients in a week, randomized, controlled trial, with follow-up at 26 months. Exercisers engaged in 10 weeks of supervised weight-lifting exercise followed by 10 weeks of unsupervised exercise whereas controls attended lectures for 10 weeks.
Depression was significantly reduced at both 20 weeks and 26 months.

Many people in northern climates suffer from seasonal affective disorder. A randomized controlled trial on indoor employees in southern Finland was done. The subjects were allocated to supervised fitness training under bright lx or ordinary lx light conditions in a gym times weekly for 8 weeks, or supervised relaxation training once a week over the same period as active placebo.
Fitness training in bright light resulted in greater relief from atypical depressive symptoms and more vitality than in ordinary room light. This effect was unrelated to the history of season-dependent symptoms, being noticeable among healthy individuals. Hopker SW.
