Natural Healthcare for Your Family

Medical doctors can be helpful in taking care of us and our children when we are sick, but I've come to realize that doctors do not always know best. I urge you: do not blindly follow their advice. Become informed about your options. The following resources can help you to search for yourself and possibly find more natural alternative remedies.

Questions People Ask

Should you vaccinate your baby? Do bad reactions occur very often or are they rare? Whether or not to vaccinate your baby can be a hard decision to make, but since this can be a matter of life and death, it's an important subject to study. Reactions such as seizures and even death do occur. Many people feel that vaccines are a trigger for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Some parents find that their children get sick less after stopping vaccinations. For more information on vaccinations, please check out my Be Informed About Vaccinations page.

Should your child take fluoride supplements? Does this toxic waste really promote healthy teeth? Research these questions and others at "Fluoride Issues" and come to your own conclusions about the safety, dangers, and perceived beneficialness of fluoride. Fluoride Issues
