Overview

The Alternative Pediatric Guide

Are you tired of filling prescriptions every time your child has a cold? Are you concerned that all the over-the-counter drugs your child takes for fever reduction, headaches, and coughs aren’t as safe as they’re advertised to be? Does nothing seem to work? Finally, here is a book that will provide the truth about traditional treatments and offer safe, effective alternatives.

Nature’s Pharmacy for Children is an A to Z guide to more than two hundred childhood ailments and how to treat them with herbal, homeopathic, and other alternative treatments. Dr. Lendon Smith, Dr. Lynne Paige Walker, and writer Ellen Brown team up to provide you with an escape from the vicious cycle of antibiotics and other prescription and nonprescription medication. The authors address a full range of childhood problems from chicken pox and head lice to Attention Deficit Disorder and cancer.

In Nature’s Pharmacy for Children, you’ll find valuable information, such as:

* Herbal, homeopathic, or other alternative remedies that can alleviate or cure your child’s specific, and even general, ailments
* Common over-the-counter medications that could possibly cause Reye’s syndrome and SIDS
* How antibiotics don’t heal problems, but instead push them deeper into your child’s system

The book is also illustrated with “it could happen to you” anecdotes from the practices of its authors. Nature’s Pharmacy for Children is both informative and inspirational in its comprehensive approach to the world of alternative pediatric medicine.
