Long before the first pharmaceutical companies opened their doors in the 1850s, doctors treated people, not symptoms. And although we've become used to popping pills, Americans have finally had it with the dangerous side-effects, addiction, and over-prescription — and they're looking for an alternative.
Here's the good news: That alternative has been here all along in the form of ancient treatments that have been used for eons by cultures around the world. Ancient Remedies is the first comprehensive, layman's guide that will bring these time-tested practices to the masses.
In Ancient Remedies, Dr. Axe explains the foundational concepts of ancient healing — concepts that stand in stark contrast to the approach we typically see in Western medicine — and how they can be used to cure more than 70 diseases, ranging from ADHD to diabetes, pneumonia, autoimmune disease, and beyond. Readers will learn how traditional healers identified the root cause of each patient's illness, then treated it with natural approaches derived from plants, flowers, mushrooms, and herbs, all of which they catalogued and studied over hundreds of years. From CBD to essential oils and other traditional medicines from cultures around the globe, Ancient Remedies offers readers everything they need to know about getting, and staying, healthy — without dangerous chemicals.
