9780062733757: The Holistic Pediatrician: A Parent's Comprehensive Guide to Safe & Effective Therapies for the 25 Most Common Childhood Ailments

Parents want to provide the safest, most effective care for their children by knowing about all their choices, not just one or two approaches. Different kinds of practitioners have different theories, rely on different treatments, and often compete rather than cooperate with one another. Rather than being therapy-centered, polarized and competitive, healing can be child-centered, integrated, cooperative and holistic. The Holistic Pediatrician was written to educate and empower parents to exercise their options in taking care of their children's health-care needs.

This is the only truly comprehensive and holistic book on childhood ailments written for parents by a pediatrician. Based on scientific evidence, not tradition or theory, The Holistic Pediatrician combines the best traditional and alternative therapies for the most common childhood ailments. Parents who want to know what's really going on and why recommendations are made by their doctors will have their questions answered in depth without being inundated with information about illnesses they are unlikely to encounter, nor besieged with technical medical jargon.

Based on sound, scientific evidence that covers territory usually ignored in medical school, The Holistic Pediatrician is sure to be indispensable for parents and caregivers concerned with all aspects of their child's health.
