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.

Baker & Taylor
Reveals that many common childhood ailments are avoidable or can be dealt with nutritionally and advises parents to observe, analyze, and be curious.

My son had silent reflux but was very good eating his solids until he turned one. On top of that he was a crappy sleeper. Everything was a mystery to me. Reading this book helped me make sense of things. I highly recommend this for every parents with sensitive kids and picky eaters

maybe all these allergies were always present, we just didn't know how to label them

Where on earth have all the allergies come from? Back in the day, they were few and far between. Now it seems every other kid is allergic to something. Not to mention ADD, autism etc. What is the human race doing to itself?
