Earth Clinic is here on the list because we will not underestimate the amazing efficiency of home remedies. As a Malaysian, you know well enough that your grandmother’s recipe for sore throats is more effective than what the doctor may prescribe, and Earth Clinic embraces these methods.
A Site for alternative medicine, www.earthclinic.com compiles medical treatemtts that are not directly prescribed under ‘Westren Medication’, meaning that they also touch about hearbs and traditional methods aside from homebrew remedies. Most of them are easily accessible and require little effore.
Earth Clinic currently has central offices in Atlanta and correspondents from around the globe, including the irreplaceable Ted, however, it began in 1999, very simply as our founder and owner, Deirdre’s private healing site in Los Angeles. On a bit of a whim, she added a page on – you guessed it! – apple cider vinegar after having such success with it for allergies and sinus infections. As it turned out, people were much more interested in the few home remedies posted on our site than in the alternative healing modalities that had been our founder’s specialty. The site as you know it blossomed from that first uncertain seed into an orchard full of effective, home-tested, and community-vetted remedies and cures proven through years on this site and in the homes of commonsense families for centuries.

Deirdre holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy from Mount Holyoke College. Her training in healing followed, starting in 1989.
