Product Description

Pediatrics is a growing specialty within the field of naturopathic medicine chiefly because many "modern" children's illnesses, such as asthma, autism, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD), have proven to respond well to naturopathic prevention and treatment modalities. Hypoallergenic elimination and rotation diets, heavy metal detoxification, vitamin and mineral supplements for nutrient deficiencies, and selected botanical and homeopathic medicines have been demonstrated in clinical studies and case histories to be effective against these epidemic conditions, as well as common traditional illnesses, from otitis media to eczema. Fundamentals of Naturopathic Pediatrics is the essential text for learning how to diagnose and treat pediatric conditions using scientifically proven naturopathic methodologies and remedies
