Many families are finding the use of herbal medicines to be a safer, simpler, more natural way to care for their children than treating with conventional medications. Children often improve after just a few doses of herbal remedies-even when standard medicines have been ineffective-and often recover with fewer side effects.

Herbal Healing for Children is an easy-to-follow, practical guide to dealing with common childhood health issues. In this comprehensive herbal materia medica, you'll discover

why medicinal herbs are safe and effective, and which conditions they treat;

how to gather, preserve, and store fresh herbs;

time-tested techniques for making decoctions, herbal teas, infusions, and salves;

a treasury of practical recipes for reliable, age-appropriate remedies.
