The parent's guide to natural health care for children: how to raise happy, healthy children from birth to 15
Did you know that: -Ear infections are usually treated with antibiotics, but there are at least five homeopathic remedies that can be used without any side effects? -Chamomile can soothe teething pain? -Ginger and fennel tea can be used instead of expectorants to loosen a stubborn cough? -A daily dose of acidophilus, a beneficial bacteria in yogurt available in supplement form in health food stores, can help control acne breakouts? -Eucalyptus or peppermint essential oil added to a vaporizer can be used instead of over-the-counter cold remedies to unblock sinuses and relieve congestion? -Vitamin C, combined with bioflavonoids, can act as a natural antihistamine to combat hay fever—without the drowsiness of over-the-counter brands? These, and a wealth of other useful facts make The Parent's Guide to Natural Health Care for Children the most comprehensive, user-friendly guide to the myriad natural health care options for children available today. It includes information on acupuncture, herbalism, homeopathy, aromatherapy, and flower essences, and provides clear guidelines on how some natural remedies can be used at home. Karen Sullivan, a noted health journalist, also covers many of the key health issues that every parent needs to be aware of—including sleep problems, obesity, emotional well-being, immunizations, healthy food choices, environmental hazards—and offers practical, natural ways to address them. Throughout the book, Sullivan emphasizes the importance of focusing on a child's physical and emotional health, since both are critical for healthy development.
