Are you frustrated by traditional medicine and tired of your children being put on antibiotics all too often? Are you considering homeopathy? If you answered "yes" to these questions then the book Medicine Moms should be a reference book on your shelf. Uhl is not a doctor but a mother. She and others like her had grown weary of treating their children's ailments with risky traditional medicine. These "medicine moms" discovered that ages old homeopathy really did work for their kids and began to research it, learning more about its application. While the author states clearly in the book that a certified homeopath should always be consulted in the uses of homeopathic remedies, in this book she explains clearly and in lay people's terms why homeopathy works, how it works and for whom it works. I learned more from reading this book than from going to a homeopath for the past two years. I now understand many of the remedies he suggested for me for various conditions, just based on what I read in Medicine Moms. As I read about how Medicine Moms came to be, I was reminded of the founders of La Leche League International. Mothers in search of information about and support for nursing founded what is today an international organization dedicated to breastfeeding. "Medicine Moms" is a term used by the author for mothers wanting a better course of action for their kids than traditional medicine. Through their own research and support, they began to share what they knew about homeopathy and watched in amazement as their kids responded to homeopathic remedies for various ailments, without the side effects of prescription drugs. This book is easy to read and gives the reader a basic understanding of the workings of homeopathy, its history, its philosophy and its successes.

Like many mothers I was constantly vexed by my kids' ear infections and other minor ailments and, worse, by pediatricians who -- despite the fact that they really do know better -- would continually pump my children with antiobiotics. I know how harmful antiobiotic overxposure can be to us all. But I am not the sort of mother who can do nothing when their child is ill. That's why I read MEDICINE MOMS, at the suggestion of a friend. Let me tell you, it was a Godsend. Without preaching or going "over the top", this sensible book taught me to trust my instincts, and it helped me learn to use homeopathy to help my kids' bodies combat illness on their own. Read it if you are sick of the Western medicine merry-go-round, or if you just want a great read about one of modern parenthood's dilemmas. If you decide to take its advice, your kids will thank you!

Why are so many parents using homeopathy for kids? Medicine Moms isn't written by a doctor, but by a parent who became frustrated with conventional treatments for common childhood ailments. From earaches and allergies to avoiding antibiotics and preventing colds, Medicine Moms provides detailed information on not just herbal applications, but how to make the transition from conventional treatment to homeopathy, how to use both together, and when to choose one over the other.

HASH(0xa65dde94) out of 5 stars At last real safe healthcare - only if you look for it.. Feb. 3 2006
By Mephistopholes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is great for moms who really want to have healthier kids and isn't that a mother's main job in life? to raise healthy happy kids? I searched for 10 years, always believing that there was something out there that was out of my view, alas, I finally found it. If we accept our own divinity then we can understand why homeopathy works.
