On these pages are natural methods of prevention that we have used ourselves or have verified with health books. They may use herbs, pure essential oils, vitamins, and/or food. They are more than home remedies, folk medicine, or old wives' tales!
Natural cures are less toxic than those made from chemicals so they are better or your health and for our environment.They are also convenient since many of the ingredients can be found in your kitchen or garden, especially when emergencies come up and you can't get to a store or doctor. Natural remedies will also save you money. Least expensive of all, and most important, is prevention. (Many of our cures articles also contain prevention information, but these stand out.)
You will find the answers and much more on these pages.
Talk to your doctor before making any major change. Starting a natural remedy may require your doctor to change the dose of your prescription medicines. You can read more about this in our articles.
