REVIEWS

  • Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom
    “What happens when a rigorously trained New York City pediatric neurologist learns the truth about health and healing? She gets her hands dirty (literally planting vegetables) and heals not only her son, but her patients as well. The Dirt Cure is an exhilarating book that had me cheering from page one. Don’t go the pediatrician without it!”
    Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom
  • Mark Hyman, MD, Director, Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, author #1 New York Times bestseller The Blood Sugar Solution
    “The Dirt Cure is a game-changer when it comes to children’s health. Carefully researched and compellingly written… A must read!”

  • Andrew Weil, MD author of True Food and 8 Weeks to Optimum Health
    “Maya Shetreat’s pioneering book, The Dirt Cure, will forever transform the way you think about children’s health. At a time when kids are being prescribed more and more medications to treat symptoms, Dr. Shetreat turns the prevailing paradigm on its head by outlining how fresh food, rich soil, and contact with nature can reverse the growing epidemic of chronic childhood illness. Filled with unexpected twists, fascinating science and hands-on advice, her book gives you all the tools you need to get your kids healthy and keep them that way.”
    Andrew Weil, MD author of True Food and 8 Weeks to Optimum Health
  • David Edelberg, MD, author of The Triple Whammy Cure
    “If you are a parent,or planning to be one, The Dirt Cure is your nutritional bible. Under the wise guidance of Dr. Shetreat, you can save your kids from a vast array of physical/emotional chronic illnesses, not only now when they’re still young but for the rest of their (longer and healthier) lives.”
    David Edelberg, MD, author of The Triple Whammy Cure
  • Robert K. Naviaux, MD, PhD, Co-director, The Mitochondrial and Metabolic Disease Center (MMDC),UCSD School of Medicine)
    “Dr. Shetreat has written a tour de force prescription for creating a more nourishing environment to fight and prevent chronic disease in kids and adults. The Dirt Cure upends many cherished but flawed notions that have crept insidiously into the collective consciousness of citizens of the technological age. She combines cutting-edge science and medicine with common sense to illustrate the intimate, visceral connection between the health of the natural world that surrounds us—our terrain—and our own health. After reading this book, you’ll understand that we are not isolated from the chemical fabric that connects all life on our planet. As the environment sickens, so do we. As the environment thrives, so do our children, and so do we.”
    Robert K. Naviaux, MD, PhD, Co-director, The Mitochondrial and Metabolic Disease Center (MMDC),UCSD School of Medicine)

ABOUT THE BOOK

Dr. Maya believes that children’s bodies naturally have the capacity to be healthy and heal when they have the tools to do so. Her plan starts with the soil, using fresh foods and nature to heal children from the inside out and the outside in. Revealing the profound connections between food, nature, and children’s health, Dr. Maya explains how food is constantly changing kids’ bodies, brains, and even genes—for better or for worse. She also shares success stories from her practice and tips as a working mother of three on stocking healing foods (from veggies to chocolate!), reading labels, and getting even picky eaters into the new menu. This paradigm-shifting book empowers you to transform your child’s health through food and ensure the long-term wellbeing of your kids and the entire family.
