Keeping Your Child Healthy With TCM

Keeping Your Child Healthy With TCM

Bob Flaws

Written for parents, this guide to Chinese medicine covers all the most common pediatric diseases. Beginning with an overview of Chinese, it then discusses 38 of the most common pediatric complaints in chronological order, based on when children typically develop them. This book includes everything from colic and croup to whooping cough and hyperactivity. Under each disease, the reader will find a brief discussion of the different types of patterns typically encountered, what acupuncture and Chinese medicine have to offer, and tips on diet and home remedies.

JCM Review

This book can be seen as a companion to A Handbook Of TCM Pediatrics but aimed at the layperson rather than the practitioner. It covers much of the same material, but is explained in simpler terms and with the emphasis on home care, simple remedies and prevention. Much of the information will be valuable to the intelligent parent, though I am personally unsure about the inclusion of herbal formulas, often accord-ing to differentiation. As an experienced practitioner, I find that correct differentiation is not always easy, and I cannot but feel concerned about the prospect of parents with no training in Chinese medicine being tempted to feed their child even patent formulas on the basis of poorly under-stood pattern differentiation.
