Hello,
I've read a quite a bit online (and books, too) about the different vaxes, etc. I'm with you on not vaxing (we don't), eating right, and almost always letting your own body work through an illness. I've searched through the archives, etc, though, and I'm not seeing many suggestions for books about treatment for the various diseases, the books are mostly about why not to vax. There was a child here dx with pertussis a few days ago, and I'm feeling the crunch to do my homework. Vitamin C, I know, but I'd really like to do some more solid research (I don't mean that that isn't solid, I mean, I want MORE and different things). What's your best recommendation for a book(s) about what to do if your child gets one of those "dreaded" diseases?

Thanks!

This book covers VPDs.

I second Aviva Romm's book - I found it useful when my son chopped the end of his toe off and it gave good advice for wound care, use of hydrogen peroxide as an anti-tetanus, letting it bleed, includes a little basic homeopathy etc and I just needed to make a phone call to my doctor surgery to confirm what I had done. If you are into homeopathy, a good home-user book would be useful which deals with each disease (and a whole bunch more) and you can buy "first aid" kits which include all the common remedies (sorry, no suggestions as I'm in New Zealand). Also, I have hunted out individual treatments here on MDC, and saved them into Word documents. Type in something like the disease name + "treatment" and you'll get quite a bit of stuff.

I saw mention the other day of MT's recommended treatment for pertussis. I did a search, but couldn't come up with the right thread. Anyone have a .doc to share with me?

from the comment that

Pertussis can be treated with nutrition, herbs, and homeopathy.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Nutrition

Note: Doses given are for children. Adults should double the amounts.

Eliminate dairy, bananas, wheat, and meat products.
Encourage small, frequent meals of vegetable broths, steamed vegetables, and fresh fruit (especially pineapple and grapes).
Vitamin C (200 to 500 mg two times per day), zinc (10 to 15 mg per day), and beta-carotene (10,000 to 25,000 IU per day).
Their vitamin C doses are too low... but read the rest that I haven't posted as well.

Thanks for all the great info! I can't wait to read all those great links MT! How do I search this site? It's pretty slow going just reading through page after page trying to find things that apply. I can't find a "search" place to put in name of disease + treatment, as suggested. Am I just missing it?
Anyway, this is just great, and thanks again!

IMO You need to read Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases, & Toxins by Thomas Levy, Md, Jd

This book will provide you with plenty of research of why C is that way for treatment.

My dear, I gave you the information the easy way .

You will just have to buckle down and read the threads.

There is only one difference between the difficult and the impossible, and that is that the latter just takes a little bit longer.

Hey girl, if you are asking how to search this site specifically there is a "search" button above in the bar just below the Motheringdotcommune logo. Also, if you are in a specific forum, like "health and healing", then there is also a "search this forum" button just above where the posts start on the right side of the page. Hope this helps
