Stephan Heinrich  Nolte - It's Not as Bad as All That


A plea for more faith in the self-healing powers of children

Parents very often take their children to the doctor's at the very first sign of sickness. Yet it would usually be healthier and less stressful to keep the child under observation and wait for a while. Anxiety about a sick child is more likely to cause unrest, lack of direction, overtreatment and overdiagnosis. Tender loving care often takes back seat – although precisely this would do the young patient far more good.

The author highlights which illnesses are harmless and which, at the other extreme, need immediate and systematic treatment. He explains clearly why too much therapy is harmful and what would help instead. With this book he gives parents back their belief in recovery and bolsters their own confidence as the carers of their children.

• A courageous voice against scare-mongering medicine
