101 stories that help you to treat illnesses and injuries in your family at home, using common herbs.

I was given Be Your Own Doctor several years ago, and have referred to it many times since then. Rachel Weave gives quantities of common-sense advice on handling many common problems at home without a doctor. She describes the use of such herbs as garlic, cayenne pepper, lavender, ginger, and many others for healing. She also gives recipes for making salves, tinctures and oils to have on hand when emergencies occur. I have found this to be a very common-sense, down-to-earth guide to home health care.

Rachel Weaver is the mother of nine children, with a growing number of grandchildren, and has been a midwife for many years as well. Be Your Own Doctor is the result of over 30 years’ experience treating common health problems.
