You may want to try some of our home remedies so you can stay healthy at home.

We wrote The People’s Pharmacy Quick & Handy Home Remedies: Q&As for Your Common Ailments a few years ago. It was published by National Geographic. It is a perennial favorite and offers hundreds of simple solutions to health problems you are likely to encounter over the next few months.
