Top 25 Homemade Healers – Granny was right?

The cover is pretty but Top 25 Homemade Healers published by Jerry Baker is not fancy. The pages are like newspaper and there’s not a color photo to be found. What there IS is lots of neat stuff – 2, 173 health and beauty solutions, to be specific.

I LOVE books like this and have a few! You just never know when a down-home substitute for Big Pharma-drugs will come in handy. Pssst: The answer is always if it works!

Consider the following list of items you probably already have in your house:

  1. Apples
  2. Avocados
  3. Baking Soda
  4. Berries
  5. Carrots
  6. Castor Oil
  7. Cayenne Pepper
  8. Chamomile
  9. Cinnamon
  10. Epsom Salts
  11. Garlic
  12. Honey
  13. Lavender
  14. Lemons
  15. Nuts
  16. Oatmeal
  17. Olive Oil
  18. Onions
  19. Parsley
  20. Petroleum Jelly
  21. Salt
  22. Tea
  23. Vinegar
  24. Witch Hazel
  25. Yogurt

Yep! Every recipe includes one or more of the items on the list. From smoothies to face masks and bath salts to “An Apple a Day”… it’s ALL here!

So, who is this Jerry Baker? I went in search…

All that said, my research tells me that he was also seen as a bit of a quack. Read here.

Oh, I don’t know… many people who lean toward “natural” or holistic medicine and/or away from Big Pharma are seen as … oddballs, at least and outright quacks at worst. Some ARE. Others aren’t. You do the research and be the judge. It is, after all, YOUR BODY.

With an upcoming flu season, you might find this helpful (or yeah, the gin-soaked raisins!):

Like all books like this, as I said before…

It’s up to you.

Buyer beware and all that jazz.

Psst: I like it, though. 🙂
