From fever suppression with anti-inflammatory drugs BACK to respecting the wisdom of the body and managing fever with herbs and hydrotherapy.
From vaccines against benign childhood infections BACK to letting our kids get sick and rest because we know that this creates robust immune systems.
From pharmaceutical drugs and unnecessary surgery BACK to real food, herbal medicine and lifestyle changes to support vitality.
