Overview

If you're one of the thousands of parents who feel frustrated and overwhelmed by the different kinds of medical advice you're getting from doctors, homeopaths, and others, then you will find comfort — and answers — in this comprehensive guide to integrative medicine for children. Fully updated and revised to reflect the numerous recent advances in this field, Dr. Kemper's The Holistic Pediatrician incorporates the best of both mainstream and alternative medicine to aid parents in dealing with the most common childhood health problems. From ear infections to allergies, fevers to diaper rash, colds to bedwetting, this invaluable guide provides factual advice that aims to heal the whole child, rather than espousing one medical philosophy or another.

Based on scientific evidence and written in commonsense language rather than medical jargon, The Holistic Pediatrician is the first place any parent should turn for authoritative and empowering advice on all aspects of their children's health.

A book my daughters pediatrician recommended but she does not like it. Not as user friendly as expected.
