Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Although it's unlikely that this book will persuade many parents to try homeopathic remedies, it should be useful for those already convinced of the merits of this alternative method of medical care. Ullman, who has written two other books about homeopathic remedies ( Discovering Homeopathy , North Atlantic Bks., 1991. rev. ed.; Homeopathy: Medicine for the 21st Century , LJ 2/1/88), explains the system's principles, tells how to assess a child's symptoms, and lists some 78 childhood disorders along with their homeopathic remedies and a list of homeopathic manufacturers. This clearly written and well-organized work is recommended for libraries that collect in alternative medicine.-- Natalie Kupferberg, Montana State Univ. Lib., Bozeman

    My kid has an ear infection & the doctor is closed

    This book has been a life-saver for my family-it is a great guide....because every Mom knows the ear infections ALWAYS start on Sunday night when the doctor is out. This book has saved us numerous trips to the doctor & buying expensive antibiotics. I highly recommend homeopathic medicines...one of the best kept secrets the Europeans have...
