This 1960 edition of Folk Medicine: A Vermont Doctor’s Guide to Good Health by D. C. Jarvis, M.D., was purchased at the Scranberry Coop in Andover, New Jersey. Any literature pertaining to traditional early American medicine—or essentially plants, herbs and tinctures— captures my attention, and I’m always amazed at the bountiful pharmacy growing in our backyards and forests. You just have to know where to look.
D.C. Jarvis was a famed Vermont physician, and his best-selling Folk Medicine popularized natural home remedies like honey and apple cider vinegar. Sometimes the best technology is the oldest.
