The Domestic Physician
By: Marlin Gardner and Benjamin H. Aylworth
The Domestic Physician is a comprehensive 1836 guide and reference that helped frontier families use herbs to treat everything from colds, fever, and backaches to cancer, rheumatism, and herpes. Today it is a fascinating view into medical history and a catalog of home remedies from days gone by. This is a facsimile reprinting of the 1837 edition.
