While my husband and I are not parents yet, we are in family planning mode, and I am reading any and all info baby and kid related! One area that I am not familiar with is how to treat children naturally when they get sick. I am a strong advocate of holistic healing whenever possible, so this is definitely something that I need to become more familiar with. I was very excited to see this resource in the Extreme Health Library Bundle! Learn more about Kate and her Practical Guide to Children’s Health below! And hurry, the sale ends 3/7!
A Practical Guide to Children’s Health
by Kate of Modern Alternative Mama
Although I discuss many topics on my blog, Modern Alternative Mama, the questions that we get from readers most often surround the area of health. Many are new to the “alternative” world, and when someone’s sick or something unusual is going on, they’re not sure where to turn or what to do. It is confusing – and when you need help, you need it *now*.
There is so much conflicting information out there and so many options for natural remedies. There are controversies surrounding the use of vaccines, OTC and prescription drugs, diet, and more. A concerned, thinking parent is often confused and uncertain who to trust and what to do, even though all parents only want their children to be healthy.
*A Practical Guide to Children’s Health* was written to address these important issues. It’s a basic guide that walks parents through food, health, and environmental issues, explains the different lines of thinking, and provides advice and ideas. The book doesn’t tell parents what they *must* do, because it is up to parents to decide which path is ultimately right for them. It does provide options, which are well-researched. There are over 300 cited sources in the book.
One of the most valuable sections of the book is the health section. There are several topics about different illnesses and possible home remedies for each. When a child’s sick and parents need an answer now, this book can provide some options – often using items that are easily available around the house or can be picked up at a grocery store.
Every book has its limitations, of course, and this one isn’t written by a doctor and it isn’t medical advice in any sense. It’s exactly what the title says – a practical guide to children’s health, written by a well-researched mom, for other moms.
