Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"There are better ways of managing children's ear problems. Dr. Schmidt's comprehensively researched and referenced new book provides answers parents and professionals are seeking. My highest recommendation."
- William G. Crook, M.D., Fellow, American Academy of Pediatrics

"This book offers hope, solid information, and sound advice for discouraged parents and clinicians. It shines a much-needed, brilliant light on a common, troubling, often chronic childhood illness. It should be sent home from the hospital with every newborn - and be required reading for all clinicians."
- Jan T. Adams, M.D., Clinical Professor, University of Minnesota Medical School

    This Book Can Save Your Child From Surgery

    I purchased this book just before my daughter was scheduled to have tubes placed in her ears. For 10 months she suffered from chronic ear infections. She had been on every type of antibiotic and preventative drug that was available on the market and nothing seemed to help (and we all know how those drugs can reek havoc on the digestive system). I asked her doctors if there were any natural alternatives to help her and they told me no, only drugs and surgery. So, once her surgery was scheduled, I decided to do some research. This is how I came across Dr. Schmidts book, and what a fantasitc book it is! I discovered all the reasons behind my daughters' illness and was able to help her heal completely without surgery or further drug intervention (and yes, her doctors were very upset that I went this route, they even called me irresponsible). This book helped me take back my power and not feel so helpless as a parent watching their child suffer. This book is by far the best book that you can get for alternative treatment and prevention for ear infections! Thank you Dr. Schmidt!

    The best book about OM

    This book is *far and away* the best book for explaining ear infections and inflammation (OM) and for strategies to combat and prevent it. Dr. Schmidt thoroughy researches and references his work, and gives practical advice. Not only laypeople but any doctor that treats children can benefit from this book. If OM is a concern for you, get this book! (Did I mention that I like this book?)
