Herbal Nurturing: A Family Healing & Learning Guide GIVEAWAY

Are any of you unhappy with your doctors or pediatricians?  Do you think maybe you can take some control of your health and the health of your family by doing things a little more naturally?

Last year about this time, Val had an infected toe.  Now I’m not talking about a little cut that was a tad oozy.  I’m talking about her entire toe turning green!  We went the pediatrician, who happened to be out of town, and we had to deal with his fill-in.  She was not polite, she took a sample, told me the results would be in on Monday because of course it was a Friday, and even rudely asked me if I was going to breastfeed in front of her.  Okay, I’m getting off of my soap box.  She told me to just give Val some antibiotics and to be on our way.

Well, maybe she should have just told me this over the phone.  I could’ve guessed that’s what she would have done.  So we called our chiropractor – who we should have called first.  He told us about a homemade salve to fight infection, we made it, and within a few days it was HEALING!  Drastically!  Without antibiotics that would change the healthy flora of her gut.

These things work, and I wanted this book because I wanted to make a stash of goodies to keep on hand in case of scrapes and even when Mama just needs a soak.  In barely any time at all, I made three different soothers from Michele’s recipes to start my healing stash.

I bought some ingredients and containers from Rose Mountain Herbs and Tropical Traditions.

And this is what I made!

I am happy to announce that I am giving away

one copy of

Herbal Nurturing by Michele at Frugal Granola!

    I have recently had a bad experience with my pediatrician my 2 yr old little boy has had a cold for three weeks and doctor kept saying it’s just a cold and sending us home, well last Thursday he put him on a breathing treatment and antibiotic, cone to find out yesterday the audiologist said he might have a ear infection because of all the wax in his ear and couldn’t get an accurate reading on his hearing test. I would love to learn how to help my little one on nights where he is up screaming because a cold has him congested. And if I get more ideas or other things then that’s great too.

    Great giveaway!
    I’m always looking for good information on natural and herbal healing. We’re usually running to the help books once something happens … it would be wonderful to have a “recipe book” to, as you put it, make a stash of goodies! :-)

    I am a mother of five children. I home school all five of them ages raging from 16 all the way down to 6! I am always looking for home remedies and ways to live more natural. I am still on the path of learning myself…always looking for new ideas, new ways of simplifying my life and my family\’s. This book could really come in handy. I have always hated taking my children to the pediatrician. I feel interrogated and belittled, and as you said, walking out thinking \
