Thank you Peter....it's not in the best of condition, unfortunately, but then I suppose......neither am I:) (It was like this when I inherited it!)

I drink an infusion of dried nettle and dandelion every day - tastes awful!
Dec 07 2012 15:16 GMT bandsix
is it doing you any good though Dave? Usually the things that taste the worst are supposed to be best for us...:)

It was reccommended to me when I suffered an agonising kidney stone - which dissolved and no trouble since. Hope I'm not tempting providence!

That's great...I've checked them both in the herbal, and nettle is recommended for the 'kidney gravel'...and dandelion is well known as 'piss-a-bed'....excuse the language, but that's what it says:))

wow...do you have a cure for migraine??..headache??
Dec 08 2012 09:51 GMT bandsix
I'll have a look for you Paulina...I think that Feverfew is supposed to cure migraines, but I find an injection of Sumatriptan works for me:))

Beautiful old book! Great entry for the theme! Do you still use it, Barbara?

I look at it sometimes, mainly for the fun I get just reading about the different complaints and how to treat them...
