Description

Holistic, functional, integrative medicine meets the parenting world!

Board-certified holistic family physician and author of The Holistic Rx Madiha M. Saeed, MD shifts the focus from adults to children in her timely new book. The Holistic Rx for Kids offers holistic parenting guidelines for raising the whole child—healthy brain, body and soul—in a changing world.

As chronic physical and mental health conditions and destructive behaviors are on the rise, we need to shift the way we parent our children to address these concerns. Based on the latest science, Dr. Saeed uncovers how our children’s brains, bodies, and behaviors are being hijacked and presents real-life, actionable steps parents can take to help their children make better decisions, build resilience, and heal and prevent acute and chronic conditions at any age.

The Holistic Rx for Kids gives readers, parents, and their children everything they need to know without overwhelming them. As a physician mom of four young boys, Dr. Saeed offers evidence-based, easy, time- and cost-effective recommendations. Accompanied by the author’s clinical and personal experience, this book also features easy action plans based on age, weaning guides, shopping lists, and kids’ brain- and body-friendly recipes for any busy parent’s lifestyle.

This is a fantastic resource! The book is divided into three parts. The first part is about parenting today's child. The second section is about foundations of holistic parenting: real-life parenting solutions for the whole, mindful, resilient child. The third section is about holistic, functional, and integrative approaches to sickness. This is one I'll return to again and again. It is full of incredible and helpful information to empower anyone caring for children. I highly recommend this incredible book.
