Herbal Healing for Children by Demetria Clark is a godsend for parents of children with multiple allergies, particularly when those allergies are medication related. The author takes the reader through a general explanation of the herbs which may be useful in treating common childhood injuries and illnesses. One of the most critical parts of the book deals with when and how herbal treatments should be used. There are warnings about not using herbs with the very young, and there are also urgings to work with the child's physician when attempting to treat the child with herbs.
The book is very well done. It is sectioned according to conditions, herbal treatments and explanations of the various herbal remedies which may be made at home. Herbs used as nutritional supplements as opposed to treatments are also referenced, as are tips for growing your own small herb garden. There is a glossary which supplements the information provided in the main portion of the text.
The author has done an outstanding job of introducing herbal treatments to parents who may be frustrated by traditional medication treatments for their children. As more and more children are surfacing with allergies, the herbal remedies offer an alternative means of safely and effectively treating common childhood ailments. The author is clear and definitive in her introduction of herbal remedies, and she is highly responsible in explaining to parents that herbal treatments are not an inclusive treatment which should be used while ignoring traditional medications. For parents with problem health children, this book is an informative and responsible alternative.
Here is what some parents say:
This book? A veritable treasure trove of herbal/natural/organic wisdom. Highly esteemed and deeply appreciated. If you or any one you know is experiencing this season's ills, please do yourself a favor and treat yourself, or your family or friends, to this timely book of remedies. Highly recommended.
This book is awesome, it has something for every little issue a kid can have. I use it all the time. It is even great for adults too.
Demetria, wow, I love this book. You make it all so simple and it make sense. I can't believe it took me so long to get this book.

Hydration is so important in the postpartum period to support the mother's health and breastfeeding. These recipes are fast and all contain ingredients I found at my local farmer's market, and grocery store.
