The perspective that he takes is of a medical doctor. However, he streses the importance of what he calls The Medical History. In this, he explains that the tests and the doctor do not have nearly as much information available as the parents. So, in diagnosis the child, the parents and the history of the child is the most reliable source for information.
I highly recommend this book.
My other girl has hayfever and I had heard food allergies(dairy) were contributing to allergies. We have reduced dairy and dark circles under eyes have gone away. Great book!! Addresses asthma, eczema also.
I hope this book is translated in Turkish or other languages to help other people around the world.
But still very informative.
