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, stomach aches, 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; and how ear infections and mood disorders, such as anxiety and bipolar disorder, can be a sign of food intolerance. Plus, you'll learn how to get your child to sleep, soothe hyperactivity, and deal with reflux using simple nutritional strategies.
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.

I wish I had this book when my kids were younger. It explains so much and all makes sense now. The right nutrition is so important for great health of children. We need to feed our bodies what they need again and starting kids at a young age is so easy and sets a great foundation for life (and generations to follow.) Although I personally don't agree with all nutritional recommendations, I still think this is one of the best books for parents to have.
The author provides a comprehensive overview of how to use food and nutrition to cure multiple ailments. I have used many of the techniques for myself for years with great success and feel affirmed to use nutritional healing with my child by both the science and clinical information in the book.
