In the medical treatment of children and teenagers and the accompaniment of their parents, alternative therapies, homoeopathy, anthroposophic medicine, psychology and psychosomatics play an ever greater role alongside conventional, science-based medicine. Before a therapy can be successful, an individual diagnosis must be made, taking somatic symptoms, mental and emotional aspects and the developmental stage of the child into account. The background and context of the illness must be determined as well: Why has this child developed this particular disease at this particular moment? In this way your therapy can activate the child’s own disease-fighting resources and support it in developing its potential.
Ten years after the first edition, Individual Pediatrics has been completely revised for its fourth edition. Current developments in the field of epigenetics, questions about vaccination, sun protection, and vitamin D are covered, as are newly developed and refined treatment concepts for disorders such as inadequate ventilation of the middle ear, bronchial asthma, neurodermatitis, and ADHS. New case reports have been added, and all drug data have been updated.
'Though not necessarily for the beginner, much useful and pertinent information can still be gleaned from this seminal work. It will be most useful for the practititoner possessing a solid grasp of homeopathy in combination with a sound understanding of anthroposophy.' —Jay Yasgur, R.Ph., M.Sc.
'Georg Soldner, MD’s Individuelle Paediatrie is a key, current, highest-quality medical textbook, originally published by Wissenschaftliche Verlagsgesellschaft Stuttgart, Germany, a scientific publishing house. We strongly and urgently recommend that this outstanding and current textbook, newly revised for its fourth German edition, be published in English. Dr. Soldner is a leader in his field who is also an outstanding, highly experienced clinically active pediatrician. He is also project manager for the comprehensive Vademecum compendium of anthroposophic medicines, and he sits on the boards of the AM journal and the German anthroposophic physicians’ association. Individuelle Paediatrie in an English edition would join the highest rank of integrative pediatric textbooks.' —Physicians’ Association for Anthroposophic Medicine
