Natural medicine and herbal healing have always been an integral part of the Natural Home lifestyle. Those of us who have been sending ourselves into blissful sleep by sipping valerian tea and snuffing out congestion with neti pots don’t need scientific proof to know these “alternative remedies” work. For those who do, the new Mayo Clinic Book of Home Remedies puts the full weight of one of the country’s most trusted medical clinics behind the natural healing that Natural Home and its sister publication, The Herb Companion, have been sharing for decades. 

The Mayo Clinic Book of Home Remedies 
The Mayo Clinic Book of Home Remedies offers simple at-home remedies for common health problems. 

'I think the public was ahead of doctors in embracing some of these things,” Dr. Philip Hagen, a Mayo Clinic physician who co-edited the book, told the Dallas Morning News. “I think there's a willingness of scientists and physicians to be open to saying there may be a biological reason that this works and doing a study to see if it does.' 

The Mayo Clinic Book of Home Remedies helps you determine whether you have a cold or allergies and offers effective home remedies for each. It includes natural methods for treating 120 common medical conditions including muscle strain, high blood pressure, ringing ears and snoring. Herbal remedies, proper diet and exercise, and healthy home conditions are an important part of this book’s healing formula. We’re glad to welcome Mayo to the fold.
