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.

The most well-referenced medical book I've ever seen. Very practical. Even adults can use the information on topics such as sleep, diarrhea, eczema and asthma. A terrific resource.

Herbal and 'natural' medicine has become enormously popular in the last few years. Natural remedies are finally being somewhat accepted by many mainstream pediatricians with parents seeking alternative remedies for their children. NOW, there is a great resource available to both parents and pediatricians that is a gold-standard for alternative forms of medicine as it pertains to pediatrics. THE HOLISTIC PEDIATRICIAN (1996) by Kathi J. Kemper, MD is a wonderful resource, providing accurate information on clinically proven (and unproven) remedies from the fields of mind-body medicine, chiropractic care, massage therapy, and herbal medicine. It is gives clear advice for treating conditions like eczema and skin rashes, colic and sleeplessness in babies and children. A GREAT RESOURCE!
