“Abigail R. Gehring has compiled an excellent resource in The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Natural Remedies. It will be a valuable, and frequently referenced, addition to the home library of anyone looking for a natural approach to home health.” —Dr. Taylor Hill, ND
“This book is well researched and has exceptional information. As a nurse practitioner, nutritionist, and herbalist, I strongly endorse it. I can see myself recommending some of these remedies in my practice as part of lifestyle changes. It is a book like no other—natural remedies and healthy recipes in one. What a great addition to your library!” —Gabriella Neacsu Katz, family nurse practitioner, certified herbalist, certified nutritional consultant
"This is a comprehensive stunner!  Highlighting some of today’s most common ailments, including a flu-fighting foot rub, an anti-anemia cocktail (which sounds delicious), and suggestions to alleviate Chron's symptoms, this book provides easy access to remedies, balms, and recipes that might otherwise feel daunting to the layperson.  This could quite likely be the one book you leave out on your kitchen counter and return to again and again."  —Heidi Fleming, Shiatsu practitioner, massage therapist, and herbalist
