9780060952891: Natural Relief for Your Child's Asthma: A Guide to Controlling Symptoms & Reducing Your Child's Dependence on Drugs

A groundbreaking, practical, and holistic approach to treating children with chronic asthma

From two physicians with fifteen years of experience in treating asthma comes the only book for children with asthma that supplements conventional approaches with effective and proven natural remedies. Parenting a child with asthma is often scary, unpredictable, frustrating, and expensive. Through controlling symptoms, decreasing attacks, and eventually reducing the need for prescription drugs, the Drs. Bock will help you and your child regain control of your lives. This book will show you how to:

  • reduce attacks by dealing with the underlying causes

  • reduce the need for conventional drugs, making them safer to use for emergencies

  • help your child's body heal itself

  • avoid permanent lung damage and encourage healthy new lung tissue to grow

  • minimize emergency room visits, time lost from school, and time lost from work

  • detoxify your environment, minimizing the effects of pollen, dust mites, and mold

  • identify foods that can trigger attacks

  • properly use nutritional supplements

  • build a treatment and prevention program tailored to your child's needs

This medically up-to-date, practical, and supportive book focuses on stopping asthma symptoms and attacks before they start. It is a must-have reference for any parent of a child with asthma.

Review:

There's nothing more frightening than witnessing a child's asthma attack, listening to her wheeze and cough and fight for every breath--and sharing her panic. Fortunately, pharmaceutical advances have resulted in a whole new class of drugs that prevents or relieves asthma flare-ups. But do you want your child on drugs, with their potential short- and long-term side effects? Besides, asthma drugs treat the symptoms without treating the underlying condition. Are there alternatives that can lessen an asthmatic child's drug dependency? Yes, say authors Steven J. Bock, Kenneth Bock, and Nancy P. Bruning. "It is our belief that asthma rates continue to soar because of our increasingly toxic environment," they write. "Our children are assaulted from every direction with indoor and outdoor air pollution, poor food, and stress." The cumulative toxicity makes children more susceptible to diseases. In this book the authors present a natural asthma program to complement your child's conventional care and help to reduce asthma attacks and drug dependency. This includes reducing asthma triggers (including advice for "saying goodbye to Fluffy"); eating a cleaner, more nourishing diet (emphasizing plant foods); taking supplements, herbs, and homeopathic remedies; and learning to cope with emotional stress. The book ends with three case studies of children who used the program in various ways and dramatically improved their health. --Joan Price
