Vitamin Cure for Infant and Toddler Health Problems: How to Prevent and Treat Young Children's Health Problems Using Nutrition and Vitamin Supplementation by Ralph Campbell, Andrew W. Saul (Paperback, 2013)
Most people's diets are woefully inadequate for providing proper nutrition. Even good diets fail to deliver sufficient levels of nutrients. The Vitamin Cure book series highlights the safe and clinically effective use of vitamin supplements for a variety of illnesses. Research continues to prove the immense value of vitamins for maintaining health and fighting disease. The Vitamin Cure books, written by authors who are recognised experts in their field, deliver authoritative, up-to-date and practical information on taking vitamins for particular health problems. Most paediatricians are so certain of what is proper care that they are super-sensitive about a parent telling them (or even suggesting) what to do. This is where this book is truly different - it is written by a paediatrician who actively supports empowering parents and who, also, strongly advocates nutritional medicine for babies and small children. THE VITAMIN CURE FOR INFANT AND TODDLER HEALTH PROBLEMS provides commonsense approaches to many of the problems parents face with young children. Topics include colic, ear infections, diarrhoea, fever, breastfeeding, solid foods, respiratory infections and flu, nappy rash, fretfulness, allergies, SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome), pertussis (whooping cough) and a clear-cut, holistic discussion of vaccinations. Plus, the book discusses paediatric visits, child rearing, vitamin supplements, high-dose vitamin C therapy and much, much more. Common sense, let's-use-fewer-drugs healthcare worked back when Dr. Campbell was first in practice-and it works w. This book favours a three-tiered approach for healthier children: (1) Good diet and a multivitamin, at a minimum; (2) Special dietary considerations and vitamin supplements for special needs and (3) appropriately high orthomolecular doses of nutrients when there is illness. Say Dr. Campbell: I learned valuable things from the genius doctor I first practised with about calming children, and parents. I always attempted to determine the reason for crying and treated accordingly, without drugs. Here is the much-awaited sequel to Drs. Ralph Campbell and Andrew W. Saul's very popular previous work, The Vitamin Cure for Children's Health Problems.
