In Kitchen Medicine the authors describe the wealth of healing and emergency remedies that sit unused and idle in the kitchen. Superb illustrations adorn a lively text. The ingredients are all easily found in the kitchen although in some cases they are exotic in origin (just think of tea, coffee and chocolate).
Application of kitchen medicine practices would empower people to understand
their capacity to heal themselves with simple, commonly available resources.
This would substantially free conventional medicine to focus its time and finances

There's a healthcare crisis in the United States and all of us are affected. Healthcare costs too much and too many of the results of what we spend on healthcare are unsatisfactory or actually detrimental. One of the most overlooked areas where everyday individuals can have an impact on their own health and healing, and its associated very minimal costs, is with natural remedies. There are no patents on herbs growing wild in your backyard or nearby forest, so there's no profit motive and even those manufacturers who make pills and capsules and tincture out of everyday herbs can't keep others out of the market. The best approach for people who want more control over their own health is to start taking action on those everyday ailments we all suffer from time to time. This book offers a representative sample of everyday ailments that can be treated successfully with inexpensive remedies available largely from Mother Nature's pharmacy. Inside you'll find natural and herbal medicine for nausea, gas, indigestion and stomach cramps, earache, dandruff, bruises and sprains, boils, small wounds, burns (the best in the world, IMO), pink eye, athlete's foot and others - 22 in all. Also included is a list of additional books plus articles of interest. Taking care of your own health in small ways gives you an amazing feeling of empowerment, and it makes you a better patient, too, when you have to speak to your doctor about a health issue. So add it to your library today, and check my author page for other titles in this series.

Or Sicilian Pasta with Swiss Chard, Goat Cheese, and Basil. Or Spicy and Rich Sausage and Kidney Bean Chili.

Jessie Emerson has been a practicing registered nurse since 1965.

She is founder and owner of OSO Herbals and offers consultations, native medicinal plant tours. and work shops.

In the recipe section you can learn to make Rehydration, a fluid and electrolyte replacement, an isotonic eye wash or Bouquet Garni. One can tell she is a nurse by how many times she writes,”Wash your hands.” Jessie says,” I believe that we must know what to do in emergency situations, what to do where there is no doctor ( in that cabin deep in the Rocky Mountains) or until medical help is available. This little booklet can save lives and prevent suffering. Knowledge prevents panic and promotes calm during a crises. Learn how to make a compress before the need arises. It is my belief that being prepared, awake and aware is your best insurance. “ “This book is real practical with basic solutions anyone can use--you don’t have to have medical knowledge or degrees. The remedies are very simple using common ingredients that are easy to find. She brings back the “Old School Home Remedies” that parents and grandparents used to teach us. Don’t panic, read this book.” -David Sandoval, RN, New Mexico EMT intermediate and fire fighter “Reading and using Ms. Emerson’s book is a delight. The practicality and usefulness of this collection of remedies is wonderful. I loved the way the book is organized, the ease with which you can find the products needed and the simplicity in making the remedies themselves. Every family should have a copy at home, and for vacations. Great Work Jessie.” -Chris Darnielle RN, CRNA, ANP, BBA
