Book SUGGESTION – Healing the Childhood Epidemics

Healing the New Childhood Epidemics

I have been receiving a little bit of email wanting more  information regarding vaccines and our thoughts around where they could get more information.

At the same time I was getting ready to do a new book review when it was pointed out to me that most of my book reviews were of books I loved so really, shouldn’t they be more suggestions since I like everything I read?  I guess that is somewhat true.  I read a lot and I read a lot of crap and yes, ultimately I do not want to waste your time on things that I think are well, not worth your time (did I just do Austin Powers there).  So, maybe they are correct – book suggestions.  Here goes with this week’s book – HEALING THE CHILDHOOD EPIDEMICS  by Kenneth Bock and Cameron Stauth.

The intent behind HEALING THE CHILDHOOD EPIDEMICS is that doctors are missing the connection between the 4-A disorders:  autism, ADHD, allergies and asthma.  Here is a description provided by the publisher:

Autism is an epidemic: It has spiked 1,500 percent in the last twenty years. ADHD, asthma and allergies have also skyrocketed over the same time period. One of these conditions now strikes one in every three children in America. But there is hope. Leading medical innovator Kenneth Bock, M.D., has helped change the lives of more than a thousand children, and in this important book, with a comprehensive program that targets all four of the 4-A disorders, he offers help to children everywhere. This is the book that finally puts hope within reach.

Doctors have generally overlooked the connections among the 4-A disorders, despite their concurrent rise and the presence of many medical clues. For years the medical establishment has considered autism medically untreatable and utterly incurable, and has limited ADHD treatment mainly to symptom suppression. Dr. Bock and his colleagues, however, have discovered a solution – one that goes to the root of the problem. They have found that deadly modern toxins, nutritional deficiencies, metabolic imbalances, genetic vulnerabilities and assaults on the immune and gastrointestinal systems trigger most of the symptoms of the 4-A disorders, resulting in frequent misdiagnosis and untold misery.

It actually is a fairly easy read where you will get to meet t children and parents whose stories will give you perspective for raising your child.  The book discusses the clinical research behind these growing issues among our kids and the authors do arguably, a nice job in explaining the growth rates in the four areas of concern.  The takeaway of this book is that biomedical treatment WILL HELP your child overcome these issues and put them on path to improve and possibly recover.

I will tell you from my experience with Zak, he has had all these ailments and we were constantly looking for ways to treat.  We talk about signs that we missed all the time.  At two, we were seeing issues with Zak’s gut but were told it was just GERD.  Zak was on a nebulizer for months; standard stuff apparently but these things are not standard if you suspect there are other issues.  This book will give you some insight into what to look for and how biomedical treatment can help.  It has for Zak.

The book is very good.  No, this is not The Hunger Games or Twilight; it is not a fun read.  However, if you are trying to help your child overcome anyone of these conditions, this is a great book to get you started.
