The American Institute of Homeopathy (AIH) is the oldest medical organization in the United States, founded three years before the American Medical Association. This comprehensive book is the first AIH publication that offers another option for parents who are reluctant to participate in the widespread extreme measures of conventional medicine such as the overuse of stimulants, antidepressants, and antibiotics. Step-by-step, Edward Shalts, a medical doctor who practices homeopathic medicine, explains what homeopathy is and how it works. He presents a user-friendly overview of acute and chronic issues and shows how parents can deal with them, either on their own for some problems, or in many cases, with a qualified practitioner. This important resource explains the principles of homeopathy, the nature of remedies, and the appropriate time to use homeopathy. Book jacket.
