How to Raise a Healthy Child in Spite of Your Doctor

I recently finished reading How to Raise a Healthy Child…In Spite of Your Doctor, by Robert Mendelsohn, M.D.. A friend recommended I read it after sharing with me an incident that happened with her son in the emergency room. She said that she could have prevented a bad experience from the hospital if she had followed the advice in this book. I immediately ordered a used copy from 1984, when it was written.

This book is a must-read for anyone who wants to take an active role in determining the severity of health issues for themselves and their family, and taking back control of their health.

I often notice that people are quick to bring their children to the doctor, even for minor issues like a cold, flu or even a fever. This book will help you determine when a health issue is severe enough to involve a doctor. Most health issues can be remedied at home using natural methods like herbs, essential oils, whole foods and time. Learning how to recognize when symptoms are severe enough to involve a doctor is key to reclaiming control of your health.

This book may have been written in the 80’s, but it is completely relevant for today. It shows how far we have distanced ourselves from the natural healing methods used at the beginning of the 20th Century and given control to the mega system of doctors and pharmaceutical companies whose main concern is making money with little regard for your actual health and well-being.

I highly recommend this book to anyone whose is ready to have the confidence and knowledge to assess their own health and the health of their families.
