When a child becomes ill, most parents will seek the advice of a pediatrician, often without considering alternatives to traditional treatment. While this is frequently the best course of action-especially for a child who is critically ill-some alternatives may in fact be superior, equally beneficial or potentially less risky. Here the authors describe, in encyclopedic style, conventional treatments for a host of childhood ailments, and include alternative treatments, such as herbal and homeopathic remedies. They also provide a comprehensive discussion of the theories behind homeopathic medicine. Look for sections on encouraging good nutrition, medical emergencies, safety at home and away, and immunizations, as well as an extensive glossary, a bibliography for further reading, and listings of resources and hotlines. Although parents might not be inclined to experiment when their child is ill, nevertheless, they should be aware of available options. The authors give them that opportunity. (Sept.)
