National Geographic helps you take charge of health care guided by a physician expert in natural healing, herbal medicine, and home remedies. Never have we needed this advice more than now, as worries about hospital-borne infections, antibiotic resistance, and pandemic threats make us yearn for the days of doctor home visits and mother's chicken soup. We need to rediscover the special care and comfort that comes from caring for health at home, says Dr. Low Dog. In this book she guides us in identifying, responding to, and caring for all the most common ailments, so that when it's time to take care at home, you have a doctor's advice on how. You can learn how to make herbal remedies and why you and your family will be healthier for doing so - and get advice on when it's best to consult a health care professional instead. Organised by general remedy types (teas, salves, compresses, ointments) and common ailments (colds, fever, insomnia, back pain), this innovative book is sure to become a household standard and go-to guide for treating a wide variety of conditions and illnesses at home. Practical advice and recipes are embedded in a rich and inspirational personal narrative written in the strong, authoritative, and charismatic voice of Tieraona Low Dog, physician and teacher at Andrew Weil's Centre for Integrative Medicine.
