Click here to read Dr. Larry Rosen’s article, “Super Ingredients, Spices, Oils and More Mixed Up For Healthy Skin” in the October 2012 issue of Change Your Attitude…Change Your Life: 24/seven for a complete list of these items, including baking soda, chamomile oil, Calendula and rosemary. Dr. Rosen also recommends a few helpful homeopathic medicines including Apis mellifica, Arnica montana, Sulfur and Thuja.

Dr. Rosen’s new book, Treatment Alternatives for Children, offers several “top 10” lists of his favorite “spices, super ingredients, curative foods and beverages, indispensable oils, vital supplements, healing herbs and plants, helpful homeopathic medicines, and mind-body therapies.” As a pediatrician for the last 20 years, Dr. Rosen has “assembled a comprehensive reference guide for nearly 100 common illnesses, from allergies and asthma to sinusitis and sore throats.” Treatment Alternatives also offers side-by-side comparisons between conventional and alternative treatment options for these illnesses.
