About the author
Kathy Duerr Contemporary author - USA. Kathy Duerr Biography Kathy Duerr was born and raised in mid-western USA. She spent her first 17 years with her parents who were avid gardeners and taught her to appreciate and love the wonders of nature. She left her hometown at the young age of 17, and created a new life for herself in California where she found herself living her dream of being close to nature and studying horticulture. Kathy began growing her own organic food to stay healthy and fit, and this led her to the study of herbs and floriculture. While studying bio-dynamic gardening she met her husband, with whom she shared both a spiritual bond and love of gardening. They had three children and Kathy was determined that they would not be exposed to the chemicals and poisons of conventional medicines. She was willing to take on the responsibility of treating them with herbal medicines and homeopathy to keep them healthy and free from the harmful effects of chemical medicine. Eventually she started working for the National College of Naturopathic Medicine where she was the bookstore manager from 1986 - 2004. During this time many friends and students at NCNM started bringing their children to Kathy with common childhood ailments such as, sore throats, ear aches, fevers, rashes, coughs and injuries. Her reputation for helping parents and children grew. She asked for no money and her success rate was high. As Kathy's reputation grew, many of her friends encouraged her to write a book that would help so many more parents and children. The time had arrived for her to share this knowledge with the world and consequently authored Doctor Mom’s Natural Healthcare for Children published by North Atlantic Books in 2004 and Doctor Mom’s Quick Reference Guide to Natural Healthcare at Home published by Findhorn Press in 2000. She has given talks in hospitals to natural childbirth educators, midwifery groups, medical students and parents. She has often been seen and heard on radio and television. Her passion for natural healthcare for children changed the view of many parents on how to cope with their children's ailments at home, safely, confidently and naturally. Kathy is mother to 3 and grandmother to 2 children and lives in Portland Oregon. Currently she is the Ambassador to the Bragg Health Foundation, and is the Founder and a consultant for Front Yard Food, spreading the word of the health benefits and teaching theory and techniques of growing an organic home produce garden. Kathy is an articulate and fascinating speaker, and is happy to give talks and classes on natural healthcare for children and any topics related to raising healthy kids naturally.
