Description - Herbs in the Treatment of Children by Julian P. Scott
This is a clear and practical guide to the use of Chinese herbs in the treatment of childhood illnesses, focusing on the application of treatments which lead a child back to health and strength rather than suppress symptoms. Written at a level which helps both professional practitioners in treatment and parents in understanding, the book examines remedies which may be used in a wide variety of common conditions and illnesses, and explores how to break the cycle of symptoms leading to a chronic condition. Features include: a clear and accessible approach to the consideration of appropriate herbal remedies; practical advice not only on remedies but other supportive measures; discussion of causes and patterns of each illness to clarify the reader's understanding; an exploration of complications and dangers; and an examination of orthodox treatments which may occur for each condition.
