Bambini e (troppe) medicine. Difendersi dall’eccessiva medicalizzazione dei nostri figli
This book was conceived and written in order to help parents getting more self-confident and skilled while taking care of their growing kids. According to the WHO reccommendations, health care should be based on a participative approach. However, the main apporach is that of delegating health care – particularly children heath care – to doctors, who are asked to decide about both little health problems and more important concerns in the life and developement of little patients. As the main solution to children’s problems is drug administration, the author intends to provide parents with a critical approach in order to make them aware of all risks and damages due to the “drug” solution. He also provides a list of recipes for home-made preparations and food which can treat slighter children’s disorders
