How did 17th-century families in England perceive their health care needs? What household resources were available for medical self-help? To what extent did households make up remedies based on medicinal recipes? Drawing on previously unpublished household papers ranging from recipes to accounts and letters, this original account shows how health and illness were managed on a day-to-day basis in a variety of 17th-century households. It reveals the extent of self-help used by families, explores their favourite remedies and analyses differences in approaches to medical matters. Anne Stobart illuminates cultures of health care amongst women and men, showing how 'kitchin physick' related to the business of medicine, which became increasingly commercial and professional in the 18th century.

The ingredients are all easily found in the kitchen although in some cases they are exotic in origin (just think of tea, coffee and chocolate).

Our Family Doctor is a medical primer dating to the late 19th century, designed for use in the home ? it is reprinted here for its historical value. Since this short book dates to the 1880s, the medical procedures and treatments described are starkly different from the modern day. The remedies for various serious ailments such as pneumonia, diphtheria and smallpox have long been superseded by improvements in medical science. As such, the value of this book is its demonstration of historic medicine ? a time when the use of substances such as Sulphur, flax seeds, quinine and morphine to alleviate symptoms of life-threatening diseases was normal. Originally, this book was attached to a medicine case which households could buy and keep in case of a sudden outbreak of illness. At the time, although such medicines were implied as a substitute for a doctor, the author is clear that if a disease progresses further that an actual physician must be summoned to the house to administer treatment.

Recipes and Everyday Knowledge

Across early modern Europe, men and women from all ranks gathered medical, culinary, and food preservation recipes from family and friends, experts and practitioners, and a wide array of printed materials. Recipes were tested, assessed, and modified by teams of householders, including masters and servants, husbands and wives, mothers and daughters, and fathers and sons. This much-sought know-how was written into notebooks of various shapes and sizes forming “treasuries for health,” each personalized to suit the whims and needs of individual communities. In Recipes and Everyday Knowledge, Elaine Leong situates recipe knowledge and practices among larger questions of gender and cultural history, the history of the printed word, and the history of science, medicine, and technology. The production of recipes and recipe books, she argues, were at the heart of quotidian investigations of the natural world or “household science”. She shows how English homes acted as vibrant spaces for knowledge making and transmission, and explores how recipe trials allowed householders to gain deeper understandings of sickness and health, of the human body, and of natural and human-built processes. By recovering this story, Leong extends the parameters of natural inquiry and productively widens the cast of historical characters participating in and contributing to early modern science.

Excerpt from Our Family Doctor: A Companion to "Our Household Medicine Case"; The A. B. C. Of Medicine, Especially Adapted to Daily Use in the Home A further difficulty was always found: When the symptoms of the patient's complaint had been gather ed, as with a skimmer, from a very dilute and watery stream of discourse, and the proper remedy had been made out, the materials wherewith to compound the potion were not at hand, but were at the distant drug store! What wonder at the result when, in nine cases out of ten, with all the danger and damage - to be charged to the profit and loss account-in the end the guardians of the poor sufferer, - in whose case ominous changes begin to develop during the terrible delay, - throw aside the lumbering medical volume with a secret anathema upon the heads of its unfortunate author and publisher, and hurry at last to the doctor whose task has perhaps by this time grown far too huge for him! Then the good doctor arrives: notes the patient's symptoms, and decides on the remedies. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
