NEW YORK DAILY NEWS For centuries the vigorous and healthy families of Vermont have passed down simple commonsense home remedies for all sorts of common aches and pains, from one generation to the next.

This book and Jarvis' other book on "Arthritis" should be read together. They cover the same topic and are complementary. Both record this classically trained M.D.'s experience coming to grips with and subsequently proving to his own satisfaction, the wisdom of Vermont Folk Medicine. All the other books have hardly any value besides telling you how to use vinegar for disinfecting, cleaning and household tasks (which are good, but secondary in my opinion). What little value they MIGHT have is because they have read and either quoted or plagiarized Jarvis. Sometimes because these people know more about typing than science, their statements on one hand present Jarvis' concepts then contradict it a few pages later by quoting some unproven babble. While I don't think his work is the end all of nutrition, I wish I had ten times as much information from his pen and notes as "fodder" for interacting with other nutritional studies. Unless you just...
I read this book a number of years ago and took the advise of Dr. Jarvis. I have been taking a combination of Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey for over 10 years now and have not been sick at all. I credit taking this mixture for my good health.
My mother used many of Dr. Jarvis' remedies with me when I was a child. They worked. We also used traditional medicine of course, but often came back to the folk remedies when the medical remedies didn't work or the doctors had no answer. In turn I used these remedies with my own family--and now with clients who come for help with holistic approaches to healing. I recommend the book to people who are well and want to stay that way, and to those who are ill, have no insurance, and no money for high priced drugs, even if they had the money to go to doctors. No, these remedies will not--and should not--replace western medical care in serious situations, but they will definitely help reduce the number of doctor's visits for non-critical illnesses. I recommend Dr. Jarvis' book because I have forty years of successful experiences with it. He was way ahead of his time.
