My The Lost Book Of Remedies Review

Highly Recommended

Recently several visitors of websites have asked me about this ebook, which is being promoted quite widely across the Internet. So I bought a copy myself to figure out what all the excitement was about.

Overall my first impression of this ebook is good. I think it was sincerely written and looks to be very helpful.

Alternative Medicine Exploring Nonconventional Treatments

In the United States, alternative medicine is defined as a system of treatments that are not typically recognized by the traditional medical community. Examples include aromatherapy, massage, acupuncture, and herbal remedies. Many consider the United States to be the stronghold of high technology and scientific medicine. Nonetheless, surveys show that more than 20 percent of infertile couples have consulted an alternative medicine practitioner, primarily because they were unhappy and dissatisfied with conventional medical treatments. A criticism of alternative medical techniques is that they lack scientific basis. This makes them difficult to analyze and, therefore, some of their claims difficult to confirm or deny. As a result, many conventional medical providers tend to dismiss the idea that any benefit comes as a result of alternative medicine practices. As a patient, you will help yourself the most by becoming educated about all of your treatment options. Choose a competent,...

Bipolar Affective Disorder

One of the most important contributions to the field of omega-3 fatty acids in psychiatric disorders has been the double-blind, placebo-controlled treatment study conducted by Stoll et al. (1999a) among subjects with bipolar affective disorder. Bipolar affective disorder is also commonly known as manic-depressive disorder, which more vividly describes the debilitating clinical course of this illness. Thirty subjects were treated with 14 capsules per day containing either 9.6 g d of ethyl ester EPA plus DHA or an olive oil placebo. Subjects were studied as outpatients for 4 mo and received the capsules in addition to their regular pharmacological therapies. After 4 mo, there was a significantly reduced relapse to a severe episode of mania or depression in the omega-3-treated group compared to the placebo treated group. Among subjects taking no other medications, four subjects in the EPA plus DHA group remained symptom-free for the length of the study, whereas the four subjects in the...

Safety Of Single Cell Oils

Y-Linolenic acid was the PUFA responsible for the therapeutic activity of evening primrose oil, the high value plant oil that Oil of Javanicus was developed to compete against. Evening primrose oil has been taken for centuries as a folk remedy for a number of ailments, the most well documented of which is premenstrual syndrome. Indeed, its reputed efficacy against general illnesses was such that it was also known as King's Cure All.

Complementary therapies

Among the largest group of users of complementary therapies, middle age women, up to 33 of the population have used these preparations at any one time (European Menopause Survey 2005 43 ). It is estimated that the cost of complementary therapies amounts to 17 billion US dollars per annum. The majority of the costs are borne by the consumer as these are unlicensed preparations. These preparations are often used by women as they are perceived to be a safe alternative to traditional hormone therapies. However, the safety of a number of these preparations has been called into question. The current regulation of complementary and alternative medicine is inadequate and fragmented with only osteopaths and chiropractors currently regulated professions.

Bird Cherry

Birch tea is used for urinary complaints, especially dropsy. But it is useful also for gout, and has even been recommended as being helpful for the heart (Schaunberg & Paris). It has also been given for rheumatism (Grieve), and another folk remedy for the complaint, from Russia in this case, involved boiling birch leaves in water for half an hour, and putting that water into a hot bath. One bath daily before going to bed, for 30 days at least, is prescribed (Kourennoff). But there were some strange claims made in times gone by, perhaps the most hopeful being from the Physicians of Myddfai - for impotency. Take some birch, digest it in water, and drink. A pure transference charm is recorded in Suffolk, for toothache, by clasping the tree in one's arms, and then cutting a slit in it. Cut a piece of hair with one's left hand from behind the ear. That has to be buried in the slit, and when the hair has disappeared so will the toothache (Burn).

Sexuality

Since antiquity, history and literature are replete with references to the waning of male virility, in all its ambiguities, with age. The seemingly inexhaustible repertoire of remedies to stave it off testifies to the ubiquity of this human fixation. In particular, the decline in male sexuality in old age, being both emblematic and problematic, it is not surprising that aphrodisiacs are among the most ancient and ubiquitous of folk remedies. The modern educated layman, however, having lost faith in rhino horn and tiger penis, appears now bedazzled by the misty allure of hormones, the contemporary folkloric embodiment of the fabled aphrodisiac. And for hormones, our social organization dictates that doctors remain its monopolistic dispensers.

Constipation

BUCKBEAN was used in the Outer Hebrides, at least on South Uist. They took the root, cleaned it and boiled it in water all day until the juice was dark and thick. This was strained, and a teaspoonful given to the patient it was even given to calves for the same complaint (Shaw), though the dose must have been increased. SCAMMONY is a Near Eastern plant, and a drastic purgative. Its gum resin, or the dried, milky juice is collected, and often put with colocynth and calomel, to be used for constipation, worms or dropsy (Lindley). How did it become an ingredient in a Cambridgeshire folk remedy for constipation (Porter. 1969). BLADDER SENNA is, of course, a laxative, but Sir John Hill's warning has to be heeded - some

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is gaining in popularity but is still not practiced among conventional health care practitioners in the United States. It is commonly performed in other parts of the world and also by trained alternative medicine professionals within the United States. If you decide to try acupuncture, be certain to select a well-trained and competent health care provider.

Measles

NETTLE tea has been much used for skin complaints (Porter. 1974), including eczema, boils, even measles (in Ireland (O Suilleabhainn)). COWSLIP wine or tea can be taken for measles for either has the ability to lower the temperature, so they can be taken for any fever (Hampshire FWI). YARROW tea, made from the flowers, is another folk remedy for the complaint (V G Hatfield. 1994). SAFFRON tea is the medicine used in American domestic medicine to cure the condition in young children (R B Browne), or, as it was put in Ireland, to bring out the rash (Moloney). Lemon and sugar are added in Alabama.

Mistletoe

One would expect such a magical plant as mistletoe to have a lot of medicinal uses, but the surprising thing is that many of them are genuine. In spite of the fact that the berries are toxic (if enough are eaten they will cause gastro-enteritis), mistletoe has been known since ancient times to have a beneficial effect on the heart (W A R Thomson. 1978), and also on tumours. Application of the juice on tumours is a well-known form of treatment (W A R Thomson. 1976), and it has been used as a specific against epilepsy for a very long time. The doctrine of signatures may have played its part, for it has been said that its habit of downward growth recommended it for curing the falling sickness (Browning), but it is certainly not altogether fancy since it contains an active principle that is anti-spasmodic, and reduces blood pressure (Grigson. 1955) (always provided, Pliny said, it has not touched the ground and always provided not too much is given, for a large dose would have the...

Quince

Quince, in one form or another, was a favourite medieval stomachic, the confection of quinces being recommended against sea-sickness, for example (Withington). An Alabama folk remedy for stopping the hiccups was simply to take a tablespoon-ful of quince juice (R B Browne). A decoction of the pips is still sometimes used as an application in skin complaints, like chilblains, chapped skin, and burns (Schauenberg & Paris), and for eye inflammations. Indeed, it is sometimes added to more usual eye lotions. Quince-seed lotion, made by stewing the seeds in water, was used as a hair lotion, for giving ladies' hair a fine wavy appearance (Savage), and quince-seed tea is an American country cure for diarrhoea (H M Hyatt). There was a medieval notion that quinces prevented drunkenness. The Hortus Sanitatis noted that it could be achieved by taking syrup of quinces at the second course after wine (Seager).

Rabies

In Glamorgan, the roots and leaves of BUCK'S HORN PLANTAIN used to be made into a decoction, sweetened with honey, and given as a cure for hydrophobia (Trevelyan). Sir John Hill had heard of this, but gave it no credit it is said also to be a remedy against the bite of a mad dog, but this is idle and groundless. RIBWORT PLANTAIN was given for hydrophobia in Ireland (Denham) (it was being prescribed for snakebite in the Anglo-Saxon version of Apuleius). In Ireland, BOX leaves were used as a remedy (Wood-Martin) compare this with the 14th century recipe For bytyngge of a wood hound. Take the seed of box, and stampe it with holy watyr, and gif it hym to drynke (Henslow). Wood-Martin records the use in Ireland of WILD ANGELICA as a cure for hydrophobia, probably only as an inheritance from its august relative, ARCHANGEL. BLACKCURRANTS were used in Ireland for the disease (Wood-Martin). A Russian cure uses CYPRESS SPURGE. It had to be gathered in May and September, during the first days of...

Ribwort Plantain

Ribwort is mentioned as a Highland remedy for boils and bruises (Grant), and in the west of Ireland, for a lump (Gregory. 1925). A leaf tea is used for bronchitis or asthma (Conway), and as a gargle it soothes sore throats (Schauenberg & Paris). A record from South Uist shows that the leaves were applied to relieve sore feet (Shaw). The seeds, left in water for two hours to swell, are a mild purgative (Fluck), and a cold decoction of the plant was a Russian folk remedy for constipation (Kourennoff), but a leaf infusion was used in Norfolk for just the opposite effect - to cure diarrhoea (V G Hatfield). A similar preparation has been used for conjunctivitis, as an eyewash (Wickham). In earlier times, e.g., the Anglo-Saxon version of Apuleius, this plant was prescribed for bite of snake, for a quartan agus, and for uselessness of the ears. As far as the snakebite remedy is concerned, it should be noted that Ribwort was given for hydrophobia in Ireland (Denham). Perhaps the most...

Scabies

(Convolvulus scammonia) An Asian species, whose gum resin, or the dried milky juice, is a drastic purgative (Pomet), and has been known as such since ancient times. The drug is collected in Asia Minor, chiefly around Smyrna, and often put with colocynth and calomel, to be used for constipation, worm cases and dropsy (Lindley), even for rheumatic pains (Porter. 1969). But however did it become an ingredient in a Cambridgeshire folk remedy for constipation, unless it reached the folk level via Academe

Blackthorn

Getting rid of warts by rubbing a snail on them and then impaling it on a blackthorn used to be common practice or, from East Anglia, you could rub the wart with a green sloe, and then throw the slow over your left shoulder (Glyde). They are both transference charms cattle doctors in Worcestershire used to cure footrot by cutting a sod of turf from the spot on which the animal was seen to tread with its bad foot, and then to hang the turf on a blackthorn. As the sod dried out, so would the hoof heal (Drury. 1985). To rise above the level of charms, there were some quite genuine folk remedies involving sloes - in North Wales they were used for a cough cure (Friend. 1883) so they were in the Highlands, too, for sloe jelly was reckoned the best cure for relaxed throat (Grant), while the juice of boiled sloes was an East Anglian
