Holistic medicine is not something I know much about. I'm kind of a newbie at this.<br>
Anybody have any favorite primer books I should look for? Something that explains what herbs/vitamins/ home remedies one should try for common ailments?<br>
Thanks!<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>

I like "Naturally Healthy Babies and Children" by Aviva Jill Romm.<br><br>
I just got the "Encyclopedia of Natural Healing" but haven't had a chance to look through it thoroughly yet.<br><br>
Half.com is a great place to buy books!

I like "Smart Medicine for a Healthier Child" by Janet Zand et al. There's apparently an adult version as well but I haven't looked at it. It has conventional treatments, too, but I usually skim those and then get to the herbal/nutritional/other approaches.

Besides what has been mentioned above, I also like to keep my eyes on "How to Raise a Healthy Child.. In Spite of Your Doctor" by Robert S. Mendelsohn M.D.
