Although trained as a pharmacist, Jan de Vries turned to complementary medicine early in his career. His most influential teacher was the world-renowned Swiss naturopath, Alfred Vogel. Jan de Vries now divides his time between clinics in Scotland, Northern Ireland, England and the Republic of Ireland. Author of the bestselling complementary medicine series By Appointment Only, his books are sold in many English-speaking countries and have been translated into Dutch and German. Mother and Child is the follow-up to Jan's phenomenally successful Pregnancy and Childbirth. Mother and Child focuses on the first crucial years of a child's life and explores the unique relationship that develops between mother and child in these formative years. The book comprises practical advice for new mothers dealing with the stress of their first baby and gives suggestions on how to recognise and treat the many diseases to which children are prone in their early years. An A-Z of childhood illnesses is included, for quick and easy reference. Jan de Vries also stresses the importance of a healthy lifestyle for busy mothers, and gives simple guidelines on maintaining good health. Mother and Child includes invaluable information on childhood vaccinations, including the controversial MMR. Jan de Vries gives his own balanced opinion, and suggests alternatives.
