  •     This book helped our family put the brakes on the out-of-control rollercoaster ride of asthma. "Natural Relief for Your Child's Asthma" empowers parents with page after page of specific instructions on how to reduce your child's dependence on medication by understanding the limits of conventional medicine, finding and avoiding triggers, using food as a healer, using supplements to strengthen your child and using alternative mind-body medicine to enhance your child's well-being. While the authors have lots of great information about how to reduce dependence on medicine over time, they aren't zealots who encourage you to turn your back on conventional medicine. The real power that comes from this book is that now, when I go to see my child's asthma specialist, I can ask informed questions about my son's condition. I'm no longer a note taker jotting down what medicines my child should take when. I can encourage my doctor to challenge us to make dietary and lifestyle changes to detoxify our child's environment that he might not otherwise have mentioned assuming that we would prefer the "easy" way out of finding stronger and stronger medicines to rescue our child. I strongly encourage any parent of a child with asthma to read this book!
  •     I got this book after reading Dr. Bock's other book: Healing the New Childhood Epidemics: Autism, ADHD, Asthma and Allergies because my son's major problem is asthma.I really like that this book is more focused towards asthma and gives specific amounts of supplements to give (the other book just gives an approximation.) What I don't like about this book is that it is a bit outdated and is contradictory to the newer book (Particularly the diet topics). Prior to reading this we had already started a gluten free casein free diet (based on the advice from the new book) and noticed dramatic improvements. However the diet section in this book is very different and does not talk much about the benefits of a GF/CF Diet.This book is best used with the newer book but is definitely useful because it goes into more detail about the variety of supplements. If Dr. Bock updated this book, it would be my asthma bible.
