Format: Paperback
I got the first edition of this book nearly 5 years ago when my first born was an infant. It has been incredibly useful for avoiding the doctor - who usually can't really help anyway, or wants to prescribe antibiotics too frequently. Children often run the risk of getting something even worse than what they have by a visit to the doctor's office. This book is a guide for what to do with certain situations. It helped me to make my children more comfortable while a virus ran its course. This book gave me confidence to know that I was doing that best thing for my kids and gave guidelines for when to go to the doctor.

I have two kids - 5 and 2 - who have NEVER had the need to take antibiotics. I give this book a lot of credit for the my healthy kids.

I didn't care for this book because the Dr. promotes conventional medications.
Want a book on natural healing along with herbal remedies check out "Gentle Healing for Baby and Child" by Andres Candee.

Format: Paperback
The heading states that this book is a comprehensive guide for safe and effective therapies for childhood illnesses, though it is seriously lacking. Kemper has no experience with homeopathy so she just gives us the usual "it doesn't work" jibe.
Does she even know that Homeopathy successfully cured thousands in epidemics of the past? Did she even do research on the studies that she quotes in this book? Most studies done on homeopathic remedies by the allopathic community are seriously flawed - no homeopath even in attendance.
Then she goes on to validate the use of antibiotics for just about everything, does she not know that antibiotics have been seriously over prescribed for decades and that this is why we are seeing resistant bacterial diseases?
It's easy to see where she is coming from.
I recommend doing a full check on the author before buying any book on childrens health.
