    This book is essential for EVERY parent to have. It gives sensible & practical information for alternative remedies for just about anything you can think of. It contains an easy-to-read format and is backed up not only by research, but parents who have actually tried the alternatives! Dr. Rosen should be applauded for breaking the mold of everyday pediatricians and assisting parents in taking control of their children's health! Thank you for such a wonderful book!
