From the Back Cover

GIVE YOUR CHILD THE GIFT OF NATURAL HEALTH

When your children are sick or injured, you want them to feel better -- fast. Although in some cases there is no substitute for traditional medical care, prescription drugs are not always the best answer. Countless parents are discovering that natural, health-promoting substances can often be both safer and more effective. Now, a master herbalist with more than twenty-five years of experience who is also a mother of two shares her natural approach to wellness. Inside you'll find easy holistic therapies for common childhood injuries and ailments, and learn:
-- how a banana can remove a splinter
-- which herbs help reduce fever
-- how an onion helps both bruises and earaches
-- why garlic is nature's antibiotic
-- how a spritz of rosemary hair juice prevents lice
-- why peppermint tea relieves both headaches and stomachaches
-- how gargling with lemon juice and table salt can ease a sore throat
-- why ginger root can ease motion sickness
-- and many other intelligent uses of foods and therapeutic plants -- nature's own medicine -- to alleviate discomforts.

Best of all, this invaluable reference stresses an approach that helps you teach your children the benefits of preventing illness -- not just treating it.
