I thought the book was very well researched with a lot of wonderful new information on raising children.
Louis W. Howe
Rami Nagel's book Healing Our Children is an absolute must-have for every parent, and especially those who are planning to conceive.
I really get the sense Ramiel is dedicated to healing children, to enabling parents to make the best choices for their children.

I'm hoping that the many positive reviewers didn't have the time to fully read this book, and instead skimmed just the nutrition information, which borrows heavily from Price's work.

I may have enjoyed this book if Nagel had stuck to writing what he allegedly knows about, tooth decay and nutrition, and left out his conspiracy theories, parenting theories, and especially his extreme generalizations that offended even me. I'm a strong Raw Milk and Nourishing Traditions advocate in my community, I didn't vaccinate my children, intend to home-school, and have a healthy distrust of western medicine. I found this book a disservice to all those areas and many more.

I would have been less turned off if Nagel wrote the book in a voice and tone that matches what it is: an editorial. Instead, however he presents most everything in the book as absolute fact and for credibility provides occasional references which (aside from Price's work) are weak. His tone throughout the book is condescending at best, egotistical and extremist at worst.

Here are just a few of the claims I found very offensive:

"Vaccinating a baby is a way to inflict pain while the parent remains unfeeling and numb. If you did not feel pleasure moving through your body you would not be able to perform the action; there would be no motivation for it." p. 278

"Infertility is an aspect of our karma, as it has to do with our present and past actions and unresolved life patterns." p. 118

"The HIV virus is created by a scientist for biological warfare." p. 284

In bold print on p. 284:
"The purpose of vaccinations, besides providing immediate profit, is to cause cancer, AIDS, and lowered intelligence.
Want Some Cancer? Get a vaccine."

Format: Paperback
This is an uneven yet inspired parenting book in the spirit of Pearce's "Magical Child," and while it incorporates an embarrassment of riches in terms of practical information on nutrition, vaccination, fluoride, sun exposure, etc., there is a way in which the book jacket is disingenuous; if you are looking for a concise, clear manual on babycare, you should know that the book's strengths lie elsewhere: the book is a gem as a discourse on the profoundly spiritual nature of parenting, and as such, it is messy, rich, and emotional.

What amazed me is that Nagel rounded up the exact same group of idiosyncratic (yet logical) sources that I've taken to heart (though pragmatically I've rejected some) in my 6 years as a parent, including Price's "Nutrition and Physical Degeneration," Liedloff's "Continuum Concept," Pearce on the idea of mother as matrix, unschooling, (unattended) homebirth, and natural infant hygiene. I thought I was the only one! When my second child was a newborn, I remember seeing a flyer around town for a meeting of the "wholistic moms club" that read, "Come and find your tribe," and I thought to myself, "Yeah, right, I've found my tribe, and it's a tribe of 1." The women in that group seemed to me to be the "attachment parenting" types who feel free to ignore their kids (we are NOT child-centric!) because they co-sleep and breastfeed on demand, and hey, isn't that enough?, and whose kids have plump, rosy cheeks from breastmilk and dental caries from a vegetarian diet of hummus and organic pretzels. You know the type?

I began to think of my parenting style as "evolutionary parenting" and have since refined it to "empathetic" parenting.

I ( the wife of S.Morris) was drawn to this book when I began researching preconception health to become pregnant. I've read over 12 books on this topic and this is my number one book to the extent that it's become my bible, in that I've read it over 5 times and my husband has also read it.

It's an easy read and extremely informative into why nutrition before pregnancy, during and after can make such a huge difference for your baby to be or child's health, disposition, intelligence and well being. I now feel confident that my Husband and I are looking after ourselves really well and preparing the best we can for pregnancy, birth and life with a content, healthy baby. I also feel that by following Ramiel's health and lifestyle guidelines, that we are both giving our child the best start in life possible.

The recommended foods, based on Weston A. Price's anthropological research, are exceptionally yummy and satisfying. After years of eating conventional food, we are now eating large amounts organic and grass fed foods, especially raw butter, raw milk, organic cream and grass fed organic meat with the fat...always with copious amounts of organic vegetables too.

I personally haven't put on any weight and feel a lot happier as my period and hormones have normalized. My husband and I have also started eating fish and organ meats (which are mainly hidden in mince meat, but have lots of chicken liver pate bleneded with herbs and spices and raw butter). Ramiel's book really helped us along this journey and I can't recommend this book enough. It's truly is life changing!!

If you are going to buy a diet / nutritional / lifestyle book for pre-pregnancy, pregnancy or for children, this book would be my number one choice.
