Book Review~Answers for the 4A Epidemic

The title of this book by Joseph A. Cannizzaro, M. D. caught my attention immediately.  Answers for the 4A Epidemic-Healing for kids with Autism, ADHD, Asthma, and Allergies  appealed to me on a personal level.  Having asthma and allergies myself my entire life, and now having children with both asthma and allergies, as well as one of my boys having Aspergers and ADHD, I've always felt there was a connection between the four disorders. 

Think about it-do you ever hear of a child just having one of these four illnesses?  I never have.  They seem to go hand-in-hand; you don't just have one, you have a couple or more.  Why is that?  Also, why is the incidence of these ailments raising at an alarming rate? It seems to be an epidemic!

Dr. Cannizzaro has 30 years of experience in pediatric medicine.  He has found interrelationship among the 4A disorders and recognizes patterns behind them.  In Answers for the 4A Epidemic, he explains what he believes connects the 4A disorders, why they are a growing epidemic, and steps and options for healing. 

I was fascinated by some of the statistics-did you know 9 million American children age 18 and younger have asthma?  Or that children who take antibiotics before age four have 400% more asthma than others?  This book is full of facts, education, and treatment suggestions.   Dr. Cannizzaro did a great job of approaching the problem from every angle-he didn't discount medication and traditional medical care.  He mentioned many different types of treatment, including the spiritual connection to your body.  I must admit, some of the technical lingo in Answers for the 4A Epidemic was over my head, but overall I feel I gained an immense amount of knowledge, and I plan on educating myself further to alternative treatment methods for myself and my children. If any of your children suffer from the 4A disorders, I suggest getting a copy of this book.

*Disclaimer: I received this book from Charisma House in exchange for my honest review.

My 3 children were patients of Dr. C's for 5 years. An out of state move caused us to stop seeng him. He is a wonderful caring man. After seeing him hold your tiny newborn baby in his hands so naturally you know he can be trusted with your child's well being. We followed (still do) his every word, and in a family with numerous allergies, "behavioral disorders", and several autistic members - my children are healthy, happy and "fully functioning" (for lack of a better term).
If you are ever in the Orlando area I would encourage you to stop in his office and view the various products he endorses as well as those he has developed. Following the lifestyle he promotes really works!!
