This week on MD for Moms, I’ll be interviewing opens in a new window holistic integrative pediatrician Dr Linda Abujaber about what it means to approach various topics using an evidence based, medical and homeopathic approach. We will discuss a range of issues spanning the gamut from how to address feeding issues in newborns, how to reduce the risk and mitigate the impact of various food allergies in babies and older kids, and which supplements are safe for kids. We will also spend time discussing the topic of Dr. Linda’s newest book, childhood anxiety, including the parent’s role in helping a child manage their feelings rather than bottling their emotions and feeling unnecessary shame. Lots to discuss on this week’s MD for Moms.

Dr. Linda started out as a traditional medical doctor and is board certified in General Pediatrics and Pediatric Infectious Diseases in addition to her Integrative and Holistic Medicine Board certification. As a result of health challenges in herself, her family and in many of her patients she found the traditional medical model lacking so explored many varieties of holistic healing techniques which she has successfully used for herself, her family and on the many mothers and children who have sought her help over the years.

In addition to “The SuperDad Formula” a book she wrote for expectant and first time dads who want to take an active role in raising holistically healthy newborns, she is working on a second book “Treating Anxiety in Kids Naturally” to educate parents about hidden causes of anxiety and what they can do, at home, to support their kids.
