Did anyone read this book? I want to get it because it sounds really good. (It sounds like it includes everything I have been interested in since I have started researching vaccines two years ago.) Anyone have anyone input on it, and whether you found it useful or not? TIA!

Yes, I have it.

It's quite good in that it covers how to treat VPD's naturally. I found it wasn't the BEST book I have on the subject, but did have some valuable information in it.

It's a self published book, and it doesn't seem like she hired an editor. The grammatical errors were distracting and annoying.

She writes a lot about homeopathic treatments. At the time I read the book, I was not open to that, so the book wasn't very interesting to me. I read the book several years ago, but from what I remember, she gives the impression that homeopathy is necessary to treat the illnesses, which I know from experience is not the case.

I like Avvvia Jill Romms book and Sherri Tenpenny's book. Mayer Eisensteins new book is great too. Lydall's book is more about alternative treatments vs lots of specific vax info.

I found this book to be so poorly done. It's all over the place. Obviously she had no editor. I wasn't at all satisfied with the little bit that actually addressed how to raise a vaccine free child. I like Prescription for Nutritional Healing.

I like it. While I'm not really into homeopathy, her book is written from the perspective of someone who has actually treated these disease, so she's able to breakdown what to expect in a normal course of illness.

I'm just wondering what you mean when you say homeopathy is not necessary to treat the illnesses. Are you saying you don't need any intervention at all with some illnesses? It sounds like you have some experience so I would love to hear it! I'll take all the advice I can get being a new mom

Hmm, I have to disagree. While she is candid about her belief in homeopathy, in the section that discusses treating a child with each of the diseases, the majority of it is palliative care.

I don't get, why do we need a special book on raising a kid vax free? My kid is already an adult, I didn't do anything special just because we didn't vax.

Naturally Healthy Babies and Children: A Commonsense Guide to Herbal Remedies, Nutrition, and Health by Aviva Jill Romm

Smart Medicine for a Healthier Child by Janet Zand

I love both of those books. The 2nd one is nice because it gives you 3 ways to treat a disease (modern med, homeopathy, and bach flower essences). It tells you what symptoms indicate it is time for intervention (modern med).

not at all. she explicity says that homeopathy is not needed in childhood diseases (she makes a difference between childhood diseases and infectious diseases, at it should be) and that in most cases it is best to leave the disease take its course with rest, fluids and without suppressing occuring fevers.

I get what you are staying, but the book goes into treating VADs which for some is useful. I have read the book and it is okay. My unvaxed kids have reached the teen and pre-teen stage, and by the time you get there with unvaxed kids, I think you realize that there is nothing special needed.
