2.0 out of 5 stars NOT to be associated with Weston A Price 1 Aug. 2010
By Mindy - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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."

p. 297
School teachers your child to expect a miserable, silent, monotonous and confined life. The purpose of school is to train your child to become a malleable and spiritless automation that can be controlled and manipulated.

p.187 - 188
Grotesque image of a mother intentionally ignoring her disturbed baby.
Then Nagel tells a fictional story in which a mother isn't able to immediately respond to her baby's cry and Nagel hypothesizes that the baby is in deep pain and distress resulting in permanent and deep emotional withdrawal.
It's this exact propaganda that is causing extreme stress, depression, and health problems in many new mothers. The notion that they must, at all costs to themselves, other children, their marriage, their finances, their health, respond immediately to attempt to placate every single cry without any delay ever. And if they don't their baby will be permanently and severely emotionally damaged. I'm not talking about prolonged intentional crying (cry it out, etc). I'm talking about not hearing the monitor right away because the volume is too low, or helping another child who is ill, etc.
What data is the theory that "not responding to every single cry will result in serious emotional damage" based on? And how is this even remotely realistic, even for the most dedicated mother? And so when she, inevitably, doesn't hear the monitor or sleeps through a cry b/c of sleep deprivation she is now laden with guilt on top of this impossible responsibility.

These extreme beliefs and generalizations make this book dangerous, especially to new mothers who are highly influence-able and struggling for support and encouragement. i wouldn't let my friends read it, let alone buy it for them! Instead I'd offer to babysit for them and make them some home-cooked food using Nourishing Traditions recipes. Oh, and I'd give them as much emotional support and encouragement as possible that they are doing a wonderful job!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Number 1 book on pre and post-pregnancy. 16 Feb. 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally, a book that makes sense! 2 July 2009
By Sierra Sullivan - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book was extremely helpful and informative in that it tells you not only what foods are beneficial for the health of the baby and mother, but also why. It covers many different topics such as vaccines (not getting them and why), co-sleeping, natural birthing, etc. etc. If you lean toward this lifestyle, then this book is for you. I am so grateful to have come across all the resources that are included in this book.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Labor of Love 14 Nov. 2008
By Pamela Killeen - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you are planning to have a child, be sure to read the book, "Healing Our Children." Mr. Nagel's book includes unique information that you will not find in other maternity or parenting books, including details about the child rearing habits of our ancestors. Tribal man had the knowledge to ensure that our children were raised in a healthy, nurturing environment. Unfortunately, our busy lives have distanced us from the primal needs of our children (optimal nutrition, care, nursing, love, good feelings, attention, appreciation, holding, bonding and closeness).

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life changing! 15 April 2009
By C. Wood - Published on
Format: Paperback
Ramiel Nagel has written a book that has been needed for many years, since the wisdom of nourishing traditional foods was broken. I see an enormous number of mothers facing a wide variety of health challenges in themselves and their children that are deeply rooted in the lack of these nourishing traditional foods. And likewise have seen life-changing improvements as a result of following these dietary principles. This book is ahead of its time, and I belive will someday be part of a widely accepted understanding of how to raise children and nourish mothers in ways that truly support health of our society and the planet.
