For a significant portion of the African American population, the use of home remedies and herbs was an important component of health care when they had no health insurance and/or no funds and were unable to regularly visit conventional health care practitioners. African American Home Remedies utilizes information obtained from two studies conducted in affiliation with the University of Michigan to demonstrate the use of over one hundred home remedies and herbs and their relation to socio-demographic characteristics in the African American community. Information includes what the respondents used the remedies to treat, what the remedies have been used to treat in the past, clinical or scientific support for use of the remedies, and precautions and toxicities, if any, associated with use of the remedies.
