drink urine? what a crock

I was into this book until it told me repeatedly to DRINK URINE DAILY for optimal health. wtf? I don't believe it. drink urine and get some crystallized urine that hurts is more like it.

Just don't

First few chapters were pretty good. It introduced a lot of different herbs and plants with some of their common uses and even went into side effects and safe use, which I think is great. Chapter 5 is where it gets sketchy. That's when it starts telling you to use your own pee for remedies. I'm not kidding. It is recommending to put urine in your eye and drink urine daily. Sorry, no. The home remedy instructions are very vague, sometimes not even telling you how much to use of certain ingredients. The verbiage also becomes very poor around this time.. it honestly felt like a completely different book. Admittedly, I have not finished this book yet. I am a little more than half way through but it began a downward spiral at chapter 5 and has not recovered since. The performance is lackluster. Sounds like a computer is reading it almost. It is bearable, but just not good. After listening, I also feel like this type of book is just not great as an audiobook in general. It would be much better to have the actual book for reference. I did like the beginning of it, but it went downhill fast. Wouldn't recommend.

Great for beginners

This book is a great reference book to add to your alternative medicine library collection. The best part of the book, to me, is that you can look up the herbs by name or by illness that you are looking to treat for fast and easy access.

Helpful book

I purchased this as a gift for a friend who expressed an interest in learning more about herbal remedies. The final section has herbs for different purposes. This book is well laid out and has a ton of information in it. If I had to pick one herbal book this would be it!
