I've used this book when my son's asthma was acting up. By using the tea and massage techniques she recommended he was able to breath normally and we avoided having to use his nebulizer.
This book covers almost every subject from colds to bug bites to food sensitivities. It lists basic information, what to look out for, when you need to seek medical care and herbal remedies.
Most of the ingredients used in the remedies are not everyday kitchen items. You will probably need to purchase them from a health food or specialty store.
I love Naturally Healthy Babies and Children but I don't recommend following the nutritional advice. It's only a small portion of the book however she lists a healthy breakfast as being scrambled tofu with toast. Yuck :(
I'm going to share with you a wonderful remedy from this book for sore throats.
Slippery Elm and Cinnamon Tea
1 teaspoon slippery elm bark powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1 cup boiling water
Honey to taste
Combine the dry ingredients in a glass cup. Mix well. Add the boiling water, cover and steep for 5 minutes. Sweeten with honey if desired. Serve warm. The tea can be taken anytime for general well being.
