What Others are Saying…
Here’s what Vegetarian Baby and Child said about the book: …the definitive guide for parents looking for an alternative…
“Written by a Master Herbalist who has worked with physicians and in her own private practice for the past 25 years, Gentle Healing for Baby and Child is to common treatments for everyday problems. In an accessible format, this guide includes solutions to ailments that occur both inside and outside the body. Got acne? Try an herbal detoxification, an herbal steam, or some Herbal Zinc Zapper. The Zapper recipe contains a mixture of zinc oxide, peppermint, and comfrey. Got a stressed out teen? Dose him with some Honegar – a mixture of honey and vinegar – to restore his chemical balance. In this book, the authors explain that the “floral nectars that comprise honey contain B vitamins and minerals which are calming to the nervous system.” While you’ve got the honey jar out, don’t forget to layer it over your little one’s skinned knee before applying a bandage. Honey contains natural “anti-microbial properties.”
Also included are sections that address subjects such as “Healing Imagery,” as well as instructions for dosing herbs, where to find a local natural health practitioner, how to deal with toxicity, and even testing for food reactions. Herbalist Candee has created a helpful, easy to use guide to natural healing for parents.”
Dianne from Chelsea, MA had to say about the book: “It has been a great reference book…As a fairly young herbalist myself, I am very pleased with all the informative and varied remedies suggested in this book. It is very easy to reference and very user friendly; nothing complicated. Andrea Candee offers a gentle manner in her representation of suggested remedies. I have bought three extra copies to give as baby shower gifts! It’s really nice to see such a variation of alternative remedies/treatment talked about in this book, such as homeopathic, chiropractic, essential oils, onion poultices, and of course herbal preparations. It’s nice to be able to make your own decision on a few different suggestions in many cases. It has been a great reference book for myself and other friends with babies as well. I highly recommend this book!!”
