Overview

Why treat your child with drugs when you can cure your child with nutrition? Grounded in cutting-edge science and filled with case studies that read like medical thrillers, this is a book for every parent whose child suffers from mood swings, stomachaches, ear infections, eczema, anxiety, tantrums, ADD/ADHD, picky eating, asthma, lack of growth, and a host of other physical, behavioral, and developmental problems.


Previously published as What’s Eating Your Child? and now with a new chapter on the unexpected connection between gluten and insatiable appetite, Cure Your Child with Food shows parents how to uncover the clues behind their children’s surprisingly nutrition-based health issues and implement simple treatments—immediately.


You’ll discover how zinc deficiency can cause picky eating and affect growth. The panoply of problems caused by gluten and dairy. How ear infections and mood disorders, such as anxiety and bipolar disorder, can be a sign of food intolerance. Plus, how to get your child to sleep, soothe hyperactivity, and deal with reflux using simple nutritional strategies.


Ms. Dorfman, a nutritionist whose typical family arrives at her practice after seeing three or more specialists, gives parents the tools they need to become nutrition detectives; to recalibrate their children’s diets through the easy E.A.T. program; and, finally, to get their children off drugs—antibiotics, laxatives, Prozac, Ritalin—and back to a natural state of well-being.

The book really opened my eyes to the foods responsible for allergies, mood swings and learning issues in kids. The book was presented in a clever detective format which made it hard to put down. Each case study was a mystery waiting to be solved by the author. Wonderfully told and well written, I truly enjoyed it. I have recommended it to all my friends who Personally, it turned my 10 year old around and he is more focused and a better student in class since I've followed this book's advice. I think it probably applies to adults as well as kids. I 've lost 8 pounds in two weeks since I've followed the books healthy snack suggestions. Take a read. The book made a big difference in my family's health.

This book is a must read for every parent! I wish doctors would read it too. I saw her give a presentation and have put my child on a multi vitamin and some fish oil supplements that she recommends and have seen a difference. It's so well written, easy read.

I was blown away by how common these food issues are, as "triggers" for childhood issues, I wasn't open to looking into food as a source of some issues with my child... Kelly's warm, engaging approach and clinical medical background put me at ease and kept my attention. I was blown AWAY by how common these issues are, and how treatable / preventable so many of the things I was worried about can truly be, with changes to diet.
