Have you heard about an organic option in Obamacare? An option that allows people who are organic or who want their bodies to be as organic as possible to choose the organic healthcare option instead of traditional drug based medicine. There are a growing number of people who are not interested in the services of the conventional healthcare that relies heavily on drugs and antibiotics. They want to be as organic as possible and not put into their bodies the chemicals and drugs of traditional medicine. Organic healthcare is the new and cutting edge of a new type of modern medicine, especially with the growing amount of antibiotic resistant superbugs.
Unfortunately, we have not heard of an organic option in Obamacare either. Therefore, our family has been searching for resources that give organic solutions to health problems so that hopefully we do not need the services of the traditional healthcare system with its chemical and drug “solutions”. We have purchased a number of books for our organic medical library. The following are some of the best books that we have found. They are not listed in any particular order of importance. Many of these books are available on Amazon and you can read reviews about them there.

Be Your Own “Doctor” by Rachel Weaver
This is an excellent practical book. One caution—some of the remedies recommend an herbal tea. If you use tea, do not neglect to drink plenty of pure water as well. Drinking plenty of pure water is one of the most neglected things that results in poor health.
Our daughter, Kara, used information from this book for the basis of formulating her Everyday Miracles Salve that has been so helpful for me and others.
