"Children will thank parents and pediatricians who read this book and use homeopathy as a safe and valuable method to treat their acute and chronic health problems. More important, Dr. Shalts informs parents that children with acute health problems who are treated and healed with homeopathy are more resilient and therefore less likely to develop a chronic illness."
--Lawrence B. Palevsky, M.D., F.A.A.P., president, American Holistic Medical Association
"Dr. Shalts accomplishes a great deal in one book. He presents a history of homeopathy, explains what to expect in a homeopathic interview, and delves into home treatment. The case descriptions are compelling and create a feeling as though Dr. Shalts is speaking to each parent individually. Great job!"
--Amy Rothenberg, N.D., D.H.A.N.P., and Paul Herscu, N.D., D.H.A.N.P., cofounders and principal instructors, New England School of Homeopathy

From the Back Cover
The American Institute of Homeopathy Handbook for Parents
The American Institute of Homeopathy (AIH) is the oldest medical organization in the United States, founded three years before the American Medical Association. This comprehensive book is the first AIH publication that offers another option for parents who are reluctant to participate in the widespread extreme measures of conventional medicine such as the overuse of stimulants, antidepressants, and antibiotics. Step-by-step, Edward Shalts, a medical doctor who practices homeopathic medicine, explains what homeopathy is and how it works. He presents a user-friendly overview of acute and chronic issues and shows how parents can deal with them, either on their own for some problems, or in many cases, with a qualified practitioner. This important resource explains the principles of homeopathy, the nature of remedies, and the appropriate time to use homeopathy.
