Quick Overview

Learn about the latest research on the surprising health benefits of herbs and spices. Find out how to make home remedies with spices that can help with common health problems.

Product Description

Spices have long been treasured both for their flavor and for their potential to improve our health. Doctors used to consider the health-promoting properties of herbs and spices to be far-fetched stories, or old wives’ tales. New research shows, however, that many popular spices and herbs have powerful effects on our circulation, immune system and cognitive function.

In this brand new 185-page book, you’ll learn about the fascinating investigations carried out in laboratories and clinics that point to the surprising health benefits of culinary herbs and spices. Find handy recipes and easy home remedies that will help you deal with common health complaints from colds and coughs to arthritis, hypertension and high cholesterol. You’ll learn about spices that aid digestion, help you overcome insomnia and lower blood sugar.


Turmeric, for example, can ease arthritis pain, muscle cramps, irritable bowel syndrome, nerve pain and help with blood sugar, blood pressure, cognitive function and depression. The anti-cancer activity of curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, is attracting major research.


“Rosemary is for remembrance.” That’s from Hamlet. It turns out Shakespeare may have been onto something. Research indicates that this wonderful culinary herb can improve memory, concentration and learning in animals. It may be equally beneficial in humans as it also relieves anxiety and stress. It also makes food taste wonderful. Read our recipes for rosemary tea and a rosemary sports rub to ease sore muscles and joints.

Modern science is rediscovering what our ancestors knew thousands of years ago: herbs and spices make food taste good and offer some amazing health benefits. Can you think of a better present for friends and family than a new book from The People’s Pharmacy? Spice Up Your Health this season!

    San Antonio

    This book is a must-have, great information. I ordered 2 (Got 1 for my mother-in-law).

  4. Spice is Nice!

    Peter M. Fallon, D.M.D.

    Wonderful book to read and keep on hand in the kitchen. Mine did come with an index which is super helpful. My wife and I have always loved spices so the book’s health aspect of them was a great confirmation.

  5. great idea


    Ha, this is a great idea, turmeric for ibs, rosemary for memory.

  6. Index available


    Hmm. My copy of this book has an index. It has a 2016 copyright date. Perhaps it is a more recent edition.

  7. Spice up Your Health....

    P Kernodle

    I love the info and the detail!!…..but, I wonder why there is no Index, as many times this would be invaluable ! I realize several herbs may be effective for more than one health concern, but some level of index would be wonnnnnderful for all of us who ordered this from PRx. As a Consumer Educator I believe you provide an objective community service at a value rate!

  8. besure to ckeck for reactions before jumping in.

    Page Graham

    the only concern if you take heart medicine you could do yourself some serious damage.and some of the cholesterol medicines also have alot of reactions to herbs and spices.check with the pharmasist combinding the great helpers i wish i could use.

  9. Out of Stock for how long?
