Revised, updated, and expanded to reflect the latest thinking
and information on children's health issues, Smart Medicine for
a Healthier Child enables parents to combine the best of
conventional and alternative approaches. This unique text on
children's health is written by a physician, a naturopath, and a
registered nurse. Assuming that conventional medicine and
alternative therapies can complement each other, they offer
choices in healthcare. Their book contains three sections. The
first offers an overview of the history, basic techniques, and
uses of conventional medicine, homeopathy, acupressure, diet,
and nutrition. It also includes information on choosing and
working with health professionals, pregnancy, newborn care, and
home safety. The second section is an alphabetical listing of
childhood health problems with explanations and specific
treatment approaches. Conditions requiring emergency care are
highlighted and those needing conventional care, such as
appendicitis, are indicated. Part 3 contains illustrated
instructions for applying the treatments suggested in Part 2.
The authors encourage parents to take first aid and childcare
classes to become effective partners in their children's health
maintenance. A glossary, bibliography, and lists of hotlines,
resource organizations, and suppliers of alternative health
products complete the book. Smart Medicine for a Healthier Child
is an outstanding resource; highly recommended for all
collections. Size/Type: Paperback, 576 pages
