The Good Health Directory' is a one-stop-shop for all you need to know about looking after your own and your family's health. Practical, accessible and compact, it combines not only the expertise of conventional medicine and the ancient wisdom of herbalism, but also the more modern application of homeopathy, the gentle effectiveness of aromatherapy and age-old nutritional practices. With ten tabbed sections taking you straight to the different body systems (including a separate section on childhood illnesses), the directory concentrates on simple home remedies, allowing you to choose which kind of treatment - conventional or complementary - will suit you best in different situations.

With home remedies for most everyday health problems, this clear, well-presented and durable reference book will see many years in the service of yours and your family's health.
