Next time you have to go to an obnoxious baby shower and you're nonplussed by the tacky baby gift registry - bring this book. The ever-expanding guest of honor doesn't need any more tiered diaper cakes, embroidered wash cloths, or useless detachment tools. This book is what will be useful at 3am when her baby is dripping from every orifice or when a pediatrician wants to push antibiotics or other unnecessary treatment. It's useful beyond child rearing, too. Case in point: my bff called me about her itchy vagina, "what does it say in your hippie book about yeast infections?" This book should be on every parent and caregiver's shelf.

This provides exactly the approach to medicine that I always wanted. It gives just enough information for me to determine what's wrong, how serious it is, if it's worth a trip to the doctor's office, and what home treatments are recommended. I'd say it's written in my style, but really I think it's in anyone's style. By that I mean, this book will be helpful to anyone no matter what their approach is to medicine.
Organized for quick referencing, this book gives a description of every illness, summarizes traditional and non-traditional treatments, and offers tips for prevention with an emphasis on healthy living to strengthen the immune system.

Very useful book to help with childhood's common ailments. I *very* much like the fact that the author provides homeopathic and herbal remedies along with conventional medicine. Also, there is a "prevention" part for each disease which is also helpful, and very often ignored by other self-help medical books for kids.
And it's not only helpful for kids, but for adults too. I mean, we also get food poisoning and colds :)
Definitely a must have.

One of the greatest gifts I have received. It is so easy to use and has wonderful, practical advice. For each 'ailment' it lays out the conventional medical treatment, along with homeopathy, herbs, diet, acupressure, etc so you can make the best choice for your child. If you are at all interested in trying alternative methods to health care, this is a great guide.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS BOOK!
Michelle introduced me to this book, and it has it's own special place on my countertop. The beauty of this book is that is covers all the major childhood illnesses (colds to chickenpox, etc.), explaining how each illness occurs and affects the body.
Then, it goes on to describe all of your options for treating your child. Nutrition, diet, herbs, conventional treatment, homeopathy, even massage and pressure points.
I just love how I have options, and can tailor treatments for each child and each condition. I would buy this book for every mother I knew, if I had the money! You will never regret getting this book. If you do, then I will buy if from you and keep it as a back-up copy for myself! :)
