Long before the first pharmaceutical companies opened their doors in the 1850s, doctors treated people, not symptoms. And although we’ve become used to the pill-pushing mindset of Wester medicine, Americans have finally had it with the dangerous side effects, risk of addiction, and one-size-fits all approach — and they’re desperate for an alternative.
Here’s the good news: That alternative has been here all along in the form of ancient treatments used for centuries in traditional Chinese, Ayurvedic, and Biblical medicine. In Ancient Remedies, Dr. Axe explores the foundational concepts underlying these ancient healing traditions. Readers will learn how traditional practitioners identified the root cause of each patient’s illness, then treated it with diet, medicinal herbs, mushrooms, CBD, essential oils, and restorative mind-body practices. What’s more, they’ll discover how they can use these ancient treatments themselves to build up their immunity and cope with dozens of diseases, from ADHD to diabetes, hypothyroidism, autoimmune disease, and beyond.
Featuring customizable meal plans, delicious recipes, and accessible explanations of the science behind the benefits of traditional medicine, Ancient Remedies offers readers everything they need to know about getting — and staying — healthy, without toxic, costly, synthetic drugs.
