Our children's future health is determined by their environment, the food they eat, the media they consume, the way they use their bodies, the love (or abuse) they receive, and the chemicals to which they are exposed. We have recently become aware of the increasingly large numbers of children who are overweight and/or suffer from mental illness and other health problems. Fortunately, it's not too late to do something about this, because children are extremely resilient, and because the body of research on the role of nutrition in health and disease is pointing the way toward natural approaches to our children's health care.Digestive Wellness for Children is a primer for all parents who are interested in learning about, and actively supporting, their children's digestive health. It provides practical instructions for keeping children healthy, for healing them when they aren't, and for feeding them healthful foods that will provide the nutrients they need to stay well and strong from infancy through the teen years.The first part of the book is an overview of children's health issues. The second part of the book is a "crash course" in nutrition awareness. The third part examines numerous digestive conditions from infancy to adolescence and from mouth to bowel--including food sensitivities/allergies; leaky gut syndrome; colic, teething, and spitting up; gastroesophageal reflux; hiatal hernia; Hirschsprung's disease; celiac disease; ulcerative colitis; and Crohn's disease. The fourth part discusses and offers natural supportive and healing options for digestive and other issues associated with a myriad of medical problems including, arthritis, asthma, attention deficit disorder, autism, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, Down syndrome, influenza, migraine, and more. At the end of the book, readers will find detailed, easily navigated appendices on laboratory tests and diseasehealing options. There is also an extensive list of resources to guide readers toward healthful products and additional sources of information.Digestive Wellness for Children is one of the most useful and comprehensive tools for parents to use in the vital quest for their children's best health.
