In brief: Not wise
Old textbooks will have old remedies and believe it or not, medicine has made significant advances.
You should get a diagnosis from your doctor unless you have a medical background or are absolutely confident of your diagnosis. There is a lot of good (and bad) information on the internet obtained when you 'google' your diagnosis.

Wikipedia or Mayoclinic.com are both better than old text books
