Calling all parents!
Renowned nutritionist Kelly Dorfman (aka The Nutrition Detective) has finally written a book. Called What's Eating Your Child?, the book highlights the connection between food and childhood ailments and provides advice on what to do about it.
Dorfman specializes in uncovering the link between nutrition and childhood issues, often enabling the family to "treat" the problem with diet, supplements, and probiotics, which may result in eliminating medicines for allergies, asthma, ADHD, and anxiety among other things. Super sleuth Dorfman is in high demand: the word is out across the country that she gets results, often when doctors don't (as an aside, many of Dorfman's patients are referred to her by doctors when the docs are not having success with standard treatments). Some of Dorfman's clients have seen three or more doctors before finding their way to her for help in figuring out perplexing symptoms.*
Want to learn more about Dorfman before committing to her book? Check out her Nutrition Detective blog. It's full of small stories that will clue you in on Dorfman's grounding in nutritional science, her amazing deductive reasoning skills, and her philosophy on what wellness really is.
You can pre-order the book from Amazon now. It wasn't supposed to be released until June, but What's Eating Your Child has been spotted in Washington DC-area Barnes and Noble stores. So act now to get your copy!
Update 4/28/2011: I have learned that Dorfman's book was released early and is now available. Here's the website for the book. Read it in good health!
* disclosure: Years ago, my family consulted with Dorfman. Her advice changed our lives.
