“When I met Dr. Kilbane and learned about her work, the first words out of my mouth were: ‘Where were you when my boys were young?’ They struggled with many of the issues this book helps improve, or in some cases, resolve altogether. She has become a leader in the field of pediatric health and nutrition. Her program is proactive toward your child’s health. She doesn’t take the all-too-common ‘wait-and-see’ approach that I grew so frustrated with when my boys were little. If you’re ready to stop the cycle of recurrent illnesses or get on track to a healthier diet and lifestyle with your child and family, this book is for you!” —JJ VIRGIN, Four-time New York Times Bestselling Author, Celebrity Nutritionist, and Fitness Expert
“I have known Dr. Kilbane for years. We both completed our integrative medical training with Andrew Weil, MD. On behalf of children, she has forged a new path in the field of integrative pediatric health. I have relied on her expertise and care for my own child, with outstanding results. There is usually not one ‘magic bullet’ to heal a child. That’s why Dr. Kilbane’s comprehensive program is so powerful. It offers the step-by-step approach she uses in her clinic. To have this information at your fingertips could be a game-changer for your child and family, if you’re willing to take the time and make some not always easy—but very doable—changes. I highly recommend this book, both personally and professionally, for all parents and pediatric healthcare practitioners seeking to understand how to stop the cycle of recurrent illnesses in children.” —JEFF GLADD, MD, National Speaker and Leader on patient empowerment, lifestyle-based healthcare, and technology integration into private practice; Medical Director, GladdMD; Chief Medical Officer, Fullscript

I am one of the fortunate parents who has been able to have Dr. Kilbane as an advisor to support my son, and she offers one-of-a-kind solutions that really work! No more trying things that only waste your time and money and leave your poor baby still sick. I am super excited that these same solutions are now available to parents all over the world. This book is practical, research-based, and provides a clear strategy to resolve common childhood ailments and to help children thrive the way they are meant to. She has taken into account the physiology and biochemistry of a child’s system, combined with years of clinical experience, to create a new paradigm for children’s healthcare. This book can help you gain peace of mind about your child’s health and allow you to take a break from being Dr. Mom and many late nights on Dr. Google, so you can enjoy the precious time you have together.” —IZABELLA WENTZ, PHARMD, Mama, Pharmacist, and New York Times Bestselling Author of Hashimoto’s Protocol
