Fantastic beginner's guide

I think this book/audiobook is a fantastic guide for beginners. I found the history of herbal remedies intriguing, especially how they were once considered as medicine until modern pharmaceutical companies basically got them delisted as unproven. I especially liked the sections relating to specific areas of the body and specific illnesses and the specific herbs that could help. The final section, listing all the herbs and their uses, is great. I don't think the information is enough for me to feel comfortable mixing my own remedies yet, but it points me to the herbs I should research further for more detailed instructions on the herbals that could help my health issue (migraines).

I thought the narrator was pretty good and kept the subject from being too dry. The only thing that made me cringe was the repeated mispronunciation of "capillaries."

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, narrator, or publisher at my request and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.

More interesting than I thought!

I got this book because growing up we always had a herbal remedy book in our home and I thought as a mother I should have one as well. I thought this book would be boring, but as I started reading it the more I wanted to know. I haven’t read things that weren’t apropos to me. I think a lot of these remedies or a great choice as opposed to pharmaceutical medicines that cost an arm and a leg and that you have to beg a doctor for. Not to mention you have to pay the doctor to have the pleasure of bagging him. Anyway I love this book and totally highly recommend it to anyone who wants an alternative or just knowledge because as I say knowledge is power and that is the truth. I must say though the narrator was only OK. And some parts she sounded like she was in a bad mood or just not down with now reading the book. I’m sure this is just my loan opinion as a narrator’s differ from person to person. Despite that I still highly recommend this book.
