Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Known as the "Tonight Show doctor," Smith (Feed Your Kids Right) has spent recent time off from Hollywood in intensive study with naturopathic physicians and chiropractors. In this tightly packed and extensively footnoted volume on raising healthy, resilient children, he issues the usual warnings associated with alternative medicineabout mercury fillings, fluoride, aspartame and pesticides. He discusses the perils of circumcision and immunization; the advantages of breastfeeding; the benefits of whole foods and plenty of vitamin C (magnesium, too, is a favorite supplement). Natural, homeopathic remedies that may be useful to parents willing to experiment (aconite or belladonna for ear infection, echinacea for a cold) are included, but readers may have to consult another source, such as a naturopathic physician, for details and dosages, which aren't always supplied here. In chapters organized along developmental lines and by system and symptom, Smith tends to ramble, occasionally lambasting the status quo, then lightening up ("some kids can sleep in the cat litter box and never get sick"). His conjecturing, references to obscure sources and parenthetical questioning are irksome, yet his eccentric voice also provides relief from those of the many experts who rarely stray off the beaten path. Smith's belief that no single type of healing can solve every problem and his exuberant sense of curiosity will appeal to readers confident enough to join in some medical bushwhacking. (Oct.)
Library Journal
Smith (Hyper Kid Workbook, Shaw Spelling, 1990) provides parents with a guide to raising healthy, happy children. He encourages parents to become active, informed participants in the medical decision-making regarding their child's health. The early chapters focus on the growth and development of the fetus and infant and the effects of proper nutrition. Smith warns of the danger to fetuses, infants, and young children from toxins in air, food, and water as well as from antibiotics, immunization, fluoridation, aspartame, and mercury fillings. He also discusses urological disorders, their etiology, and their treatment. Although not a comprehensive child care manual, this book does cover such topics as aggression, anxiety, allergies, pain, and skin problems; emergencies, accidents, poisoning, and first-aid are also addressed. Smith uses case reports to illustrate his arguments and provides extensive references and a list of resource organizations.
