Description:


How did 17th-century households in England perceive their health care needs? What sources of information and supplies were available for medical self-help? To what extent did women practice domestic medicine and make up remedies based on household 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Drawing on previously unpublished household papers ranging from recipes to accounts and letters, this original account shows how health and illness were managed on a day-to-day basis in a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 varying nature 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' or domestic medicine related to the business of medicine, which became increasingly commercial and professional in the 18th century.
