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.

I bought this book because I truly believe that you are what you eat and what you manifest for your children in your behaviour. The book has some interesting statements and case studies, but no real empirical data to back it up. They use traditional ways as ones to emulate and advocate we return to an agrarian society, essentially. Though it has the right motive, it's a little different in the ideas it promotes.
