Natural Medicine Cabinet Series: Top 20 Natural Home Remedies, Healers & Treatment

I don’t like going to the doctor. I’m self-employed and pay for my own health insurance, which means the cost of any visit comes right out of my pocket. So unless it’s serious, I simply don’t go. Needless to say, it’s been years since I last set foot in a doctor’s office.

Some of you may be in the same boat as I am. Many health insurance plans no long cover office visits, and this means that the five minutes your doctor spends looking you over can cost you $75 or more. And that doesn’t include what you’re going to shell out for prescription drugs.

This winter I ordered the book 1,801 Home Remedies: Trustworthy Treatments for Everyday Health Problems, by Readers Digest. This comprehensive book is full of wisdom and tips that teach you how to feel better fast – without running to the doctor or spending money on expensive commercial drugs. These are the kind of home treatment tips that people 100 years ago used to treat themselves, mainly because they couldn’t afford a doctor.

I really can’t say enough about this book; I’ve been referencing it all winter, and I’ve used many of the tips with great success. If you’re at all interested in learning how to create natural cold and flu remedies at home and treat other illnesses and conditions, then don’t miss this book.

At the back of the book, Reader’s Digest includes a chapter entitled “Top 20 Household Healers.” These are the items that you should always have on hand if you want to use natural, and frugal, home remedies to treat your family. That last chapter was the inspiration for this Natural Medicine Cabinet Series. I’ll be covering many of those top healers, and adding my own research and personal tips along the way.
