We are very fortunate that we are living in a world where infant mortality has reduced considerably, thanks to the dispersion of knowledge and with parents getting to know more about how to take care of their children, without recourse to quack methods for curing ailments or trial or error theories about how to cure childhood ailments.
Nevertheless, every child being mortal is going to fall prey to a large number of infantile diseases because that is a natural phenomenon, especially when he is living in the world where he is vulnerable to a large number of childhood illnesses.
So you have two options. Either go running to the doctor, for every cough and sneeze, because you are terrified of his being so ill-that is an occupational hazard with first-time parents, it has happened down generations it is going to happen 5,000 years from now. Or you are going to use a little bit of common sense, and allow his natural healing system to get rid of the infection by itself. This is what happened the majority of the time, because before doctors existed nature had her own curative measures in order to get rid of infections. As man became more and more sophisticated, he began trying out experimentations on herbs and remedies, in order to support and encourage the natural healing process.
For millenniums and through plenty of trial and error, man has found that some remedies worked and some did not. So that is why he has always been the guinea pig for some sort of therapeutic experimentation being undertaken by doctors down the ages.
I remember AA Milnes’ Christopher Robin poems read in childhood, where parents and doctors get panic stricken because a little child has come down with sniffles and whiffles.
