Bare Remedies
Emalis Robateau

The number of adult Americans taking medication is increasing. Half of us take prescription drugs and 81% of us take at least one kind of pill everyday. That percentage is expected to rise in the coming years. The US spends two times more on drugs and takes twice as many drugs than any other county, yet it has a worse health record. That means we are paying money for drugs that are not working for us. Many people are unaware of simple home remedies that can help or prevent various aches, pains, and fevers. Bare Remedies seeks to share the knowledge of home remedies in a clear and contained manner. The project and information in this book are not meant to completely replace serious medical advice. Rather this is intended to be used as a guide to more natural alternatives when appropriately available. I was raised on home remedies. Home remedies have been passed down through generations for a reason. They were the first methods of taking care of the body long before medicinal testing labs. I wanted to create a brand and space, both on screen and as an exhibit, for finding natural remedies that was well designed, concise, interactive, fun, and easy to navigate. I really believe in the importance of knowing natural method of healing that can replace being overly medicated whenever possible. Natural elements benefit your body, and when your body is functioning properly your mind will follow and flow with ease.
