Vaccinations: A Thoughtful Parent's Guide

Regular price $25.00 Sale

Deciding whether or when to vaccinate a child is one of the most important - and most difficult - health-care decisions a parent will ever make. The recent increase in the number of vaccinations recommended and the concurrent controversies about whether vaccinations are safe or even effective have left many parents confused and concerned. Midwife, herbalist and mother of four, Aviva Jill Romm, sifts through the spate of current research on vaccine safety and efficacy and offers a sensible, balanced discussion of the pros and cons of each routine childhood vaccination. She presents the full spectrum of options available to parents: full vaccination on a standardised or individualised schedule, selective vaccination or no vaccinations at all. The book also suggests ways to strengthen children's immune systems and maintain optimal health, and offers herbal and homeopathic remedies for childhood ailments. Emphasising that no single approach is appropriate for every child, the author guides parents as they make the choices that are right for their child.
