When a child is sick, parents need clear and reliable information helping them to take action quickly. This fully comprehensive guide to child health and wellness draws on anthroposophic medicine, combining conventional treatments with complementary therapies.

A Waldorf Guide to Child Health includes:

  • First aid guidance for help in emergencies
  • Treatments to relieve common complaints such as pain, fever, vomiting, allergies and asthma
  • Recommendations to deal with common illnesses such as chickenpox, glandular fever and ear infections
  • Advice on coping with serious disorders such as meningitis, diabetes, chronic illnesses, and hospital stays

This book also includes current medical advice alongside tried-and-tested tips, empowering modern parents and caregivers to look beyond superficial symptoms to better understand the whole child in body, soul, and spirit. A Waldorf Guide to Child Health provides an essential reference for approaching children’s health holistically
