For the millions of families facing the problems of childhood asthma, a proven, easy-to-follow holistic approach to regaining control of their lives.

Nearly one in ten children in the United States suffers from asthma. It is the leading cause of childhood hospitalization and profoundly disrupts both school and family life. Control Your Child's Asthma presents a proven program children and their families can use to manage the condition and live normal lives. Pioneered in the clinics and hospitals of the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Health System, this comprehensive, highly successful program focuses not just on medical treatments but also on emotional and social concerns. Its simple, commonsense strategies show parents and patients how to:--get the greatest benefits -- and experience the fewest side effects -- from medication --prevent flare-ups and minimize their severity when they do happen--work with doctors, health plans, and schools --deal with travel away from home --handle the special needs of infants and teenagers

Control Your Child's Asthma is an essential book that no parent of a child with asthma should be without.
