Reviews - What do customers think about Smart Medicine For A Healthier Child?
Very useful Aug 3, 2008
Useful, no nonesense advice. It gives you advice on homeopathic remedies, stuff around the house remedies, and drugs too. This is my new go-to book for my child and myself too...
Old Version Better Jul 23, 2008
The book has excellent content, however the new version, 2003, is printed in an awful font, hard to read, boring to look at and so on. The original version was written in an easy to read font and contents were in different colors. It was easy to find what you were looking for when your up in the middle of the nite with a sick baby. In their attempt to cut costs, the publisher has really diminished the value of this product.
Well-Rounded for ALL Parents Jun 12, 2008
This book has finally combined all views of medicine from the conventional to the all-natural. I enjoyed sharing this book with my pediatrician, who had great things to say about my approach. I love this book and reach for it every time I suspect a cold or illness. We use it for the entire family! Great all around book. I would give this book to ANYONE, not just those seeking natural treatments.
simply the best book I have ever seen on this topic Jun 1, 2008
This is the book I get for all of my friends when they are expecting.It has been incredibly helpful for me with my 3 kids and also with the children I watch (I do home daycare). I highly recommend it to everyone. The adult version is excellent too.
The only book you will need for your family May 19, 2008
I used this book and a homeopathy book in raising my two children. It is all you will need. It gives you the right information to make decisions on whether you should rush them to the hospital, or give them a homeopathic remedy or other natural treatment. The book aids you in making logical and informed decisions for you children. For those of you who still might think homeopathy is "snake oil", think again. I cured teething problems, colics, ear aches, tummy aches, coughs, bumps and bruises, minor burns, bee stings, and if you pick the right remedy, the kids get better in seconds. If you don't vaccinate your kids, this is an even more important resource because of detailed information on conditions that even the (allopathic, that is) doctor may not know about. Thank you Janet Zand and other authors for giving parents the knowledge and tools to treat our children naturally and keep them healthy.
