Western medicine can be difficult and confusing for parents when managing their children's chronic health conditions such as asthma, eczema, and allergies. Many children fall into the "unwellness gap," where they aren't always sick but aren't entirely well either. Robin Ray Green draws on her personal experiences as a mother and pediatric acupuncturist to help you understand your child's 5-Element type within Traditional Chinese Medicine-Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, or Water-so you'll be able to:
- Diagnose elemental imbalances within the body that create health issues
- Choose the best nutrition, lifestyle choices, and healing modalities-including acupressure, massage, and meditation-based on your child's particular health goals
- Personalize your parenting style for your child's unique emotional needs
Questionnaires and fun quizzes help you gain a new perspective on your child in an easy-to-understand way. Ultimately, empowered with this knowledge and a new, holistic perspective on health, you'll be able to augment Western treatments with time-tested natural solutions to help your child-and your whole family-heal naturally.
