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."

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.
The only thing I didn't care for was the author's spiritual and philosophical views and was a little new-agey for me. But that's only because I'm a Christian and don't necessarily subscribe to those types of beliefs. It simply didn't do anything for me, HOWEVER, it is a lot better than not having any spiritual views at all, IMHO.
I HIGHLY recommend this book as it will tell you FAR more useful and TRUTHFUL information about what is crucial for the healthy development of your unborn child, starting from before the baby is even conceived.
Aside from providing parenting tips, "Healing Our Children" also includes in-depth information about the importance of eating a nutrient-dense diet which includes adequate amounts of the critical fat-soluble vitamins, A, D, E and K. The diets of indigenous cultures provided adequate amounts of these vitamins and they enjoyed excellent health and fertility. Unfortunately, since our modern diet is deficient in these critical nutrients, we are seeing increased rates of infertility, birth defects and other health problems.
"Healing Our Children" will help you prepare for a healthy pregnancy but also contribute to the health and wellness of your entire family.
