Looking at the interplay between mainstream physicians and alternative treatments, and the effect of folk beliefs on todays self-care practices, Crellin examines how the advent of modern medicine has affected self-treatment. His extensive use of oral and written commentary gives the book a personal dimension that adds to its charm. Home Medicine will appeal to those interested in alternative medicine, folklore, and Atlantic Canada, and to medical and social historians.
