    MAMAS HOME REMEDIES

    by Svetlana Konnikova MA, AN. Many traditional medicines were based on plant use, the knowledge of which was passed down through the generations. Much of that has been lost, which is why books like this are so valuable. Svetlana Konnikova began documenting the herbal wisdom of her Russian heritage when she was 12. She came from a long line of old healers and her mother was a doctor with an interest in natural healing. Her book is wonderful for those interested in a natural approach to health. There are numerous safe and easy-to-make remedies for the following conditions: common colds (89 recipes), allergies (61), children's allergies (40), headaches (70), sleep (63), fatigue (19), stress (10), and asthma (51). Remedies use over 100 medicinal herbs, vegetables and other plants and are in the form of teas, 'nastoykas' (infusions), tinctures, juices, compresses, and just plain good advice. In addition, Konnikova spices up the text with personal antidotes and Russian folktales. Softcover 312pp. Learn More
