Naturally Healthy Kids: Integrating Conventional and Holistic Treatments for Common Illnesses of Children based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This is a ¿must have¿ resource for any parent. The authors practice at our pediatrician¿s office, and the book has saved me money in unnecessary pediatrician visits and has saved me unnecessary anxiety about my children's conditions. The book lists the expected course of a sickness or condition, causes, what you can do to take care of the condition at home (including alternative treatments such as homeopathic, herbal, nutritional, etc), and when to call the dr (the section for each condition ends with a list of symptoms to call about within 24 hrs and symptoms to call about immediately). If I don¿t need to call the office, I am confident in caring for my child at home following the recommendations in the book. For example, this book saved me a trip to the emergency room. My 2 year old son was running and fell head first into a door jam. Immediately there was a large colored knot on his forehead. I looked up ¿head injury¿ in the book. My son showed all the expected symptoms, but none of the symptoms listed to call about. I was relieved and cared for him following the ¿home care¿ section within the ¿head injury¿ section. My favorite attribute of the book is that the authors list alternative treatments (homeopathic, herbal, aromatherapy, diet and nutrition, etc) and how to use them. Before this book was available online, I purchased extra copies from our pediatrician¿s office for my friends who had requested it and for gifts for new parents. This book is an irreplaceable resource!
