PHILADELPHIA -

Alicia Silverstone’s new book “The Kind Mama” is sparking controversy over her parenting methods.

In it, the actress advocates a vegan-based diet to cure infertility problems. She also suggests "elimination communication" instead of potty training.

Silverstone is a big supporter of breastfeeding, which doctors recommend, but she takes the recommendation to the extreme writing, “breast milk is also the ultimate cure-all for almost every ailment that might come up in baby’s early days. It’s a natural antibiotic and has almost otherworldly power to both soothe and heal.”

The star of the 1990’s film “Clueless” also writes that tampons make women infertile. She writes, “unfortunately, feminine-care manufacturers aren’t required to tell you what’s in their products, which means that no one’s talking about the potential pesticide residues from non-organic cotton and the ‘fragrances’ containing hormone-upsetting, fertility-knocking phthalates that are snuggling up to your hoo-ha.”

Silverstone also encourages parents to ditch the diapers so their kids can be more in tune with their bodies.

This isn't the first time the 37-year-old made headlines over her parenting style. Back in 2012, she posted a video of her chewing up her son's food then spitting it into his mouth.
