In addition to homeopathic first aid treatment for such ailments as back pain, puncture wounds, eye injuries, fractures, and insect bites, the book outlines remedies for a wide range of everyday complaints, including allergies, coughs, colds, flu, fevers, digestive problems, headaches, PMS, earaches, insomnia, jet lag, and more.
