"Lost in the landscape of ASD, PDD, ADHD and a jungle of other labels for children's problems? The best path favors not labels but logical questions shared by practitioner and parent. Does this child have a special unmet need to get and/or avoid something which, if addressed, will favor Nature's buoyant impulse toward healing? This book guides you among the options and up the steps of that path with clarity, precision, wisdom and wit." Sidney M. Baker, M.D., F.A.A.P., Founder and CVO of Author of Detoxification and Healing, co-author of Autism: Effective Biomedical Treatments
"This book provides invaluable information on diet and supplements, as well as nutrient and medication interactions. From years of experience and sound research, these clinicians outline specific supplements that can positively impact your child's health and development. If you read only one guide this year, make it this one."Nancy Hofreuter O'Hara, M.D., M.P.H., F.A.A.P., Center for Integrative Health, Wilton, CT.
"This is a much needed serious yet readable and usable guide to leveraging diet and nutrition to maximize progress for those with ADHD and autism.
