GENTLE REMEDIES: SIMPLE SOLUTIONS FOR COMMON HEALTH CONCERNS
Gentle Remedies presents ways to successfully integrate herbs into home health care alongside more conventional biomedical therapies. Herbs were once a major source of the remedies used in healing. The development of synthetic drugs during the twentieth century largely replaced the use of herbal therapies. This trend is beginning to change again, however, as home health care providers encounter patients turned health care consumers who actively seek alternatives to biomedicine, such as herbal therapies. Today's home health care providers are also becoming more aware of larger demographic groups who continue to use generations-old, plant-based remedies. The guide begins with an introduction to medicinal plants and includes a brief overview of botany, safe use information, and suggestions on how to use the guide in practice with many common herbs. Each chapter contains practical information on how to integrate plant-based therapies into home health care. The guide concludes by showing ways to learn more about the use of plant therapies in holistic practice.
