Overview

Grounded in cutting-edge science, Cure Your Child with Food reveals the hidden connections between nutrition and chronic childhood ailments, and gives parents the simple, straightforward solutions they need to help their children thrive.

Discover how zinc deficiency can cause picky eating and affect growth. The panoply of problems caused by dairy and gluten. How to cure sleep disorders with melatonin, hyperactivity with magnesium, anxiety with fish oil.

Kelly Dorfman, a nutritionist whose typical patient arrives at her practice after seeing three or more specialists, gives parents the tools to become nutrition detectives themselves. She shows how to recalibrate children's diets through the easy E.A.T. program, and how to get kids off drugs—antibiotics, laxatives, Prozac, Ritalin—and back to a state of natural well-being.

"In her terrific book, Kelly Dorfman clearly explains how to decipher the clues to nutritional disorders that affect the body and brain. Parents will find it packed with sound advice and useful information." —Maurine Packard, MD, pediatric neurologist
