Every nation and cultural group in the world has its own traditions of home remedies and folk medicine. At Earth Clinic, we think that every last one of them is valuable.
So it is our mission to collect folk cures and home remedies from community members throughout the world. Major healing traditions such as Ayurveda, the Western medical tradition, Traditional Chinese Medicine, South American Shamanism, Caribbean Voodoo medicine, and other well-known philosophies of medical treatment are just the tip of the surgical blade. Local communities everywhere in the world are caretakers for health wisdom no one else has yet discovered. It’s a rich gift too precious not to share with the rest of the complementary and alternative health world!
Join the Conversation: We want everyone’s help to record your traditional regional cures before such knowledge is lost. Help us build our World database! Please ask your parents and grandparents, co-workers from other countries, neighborhood emigres, and international pen pals about the remedies they used as children. We want to hear about the simplest remedies in all their national variations for fever, coughs, flu, and each of those common ailments that plagues people the world over and throughout time. Please help us add to our Global Folk Medicine library by submitting home remedies from your own countries and cultural groups! Earth Clinic will create a new country page and regional pages for the remedies we receive.
