Drawing from the ancient wisdom of the Five Elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Robin Ray Green, L.Ac., MTCM, offers simple solutions for creating a natural healing program that is as unique as your child. Questionnaires and quizzes help you gain an understanding of your child’s 5-Element type—whether it’s Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal or Water—to allow you to diagnose imbalances within the body that create health issues. Once you’ve gained a solid understanding of the 5 Elements and how health conditions are affected by elemental imbalances, nutrition, and lifestyle, you’ll learn simple techniques—such as acupressure, massage, and meditation—that will help your child achieve vibrant health.

Ultimately, empowered with this knowledge and a new, holistic perspective on health, you’ll be able to augment Western treatments with time-tested natural solutions to help your child, and your whole family, heal naturally.

— Erin Day Cox, wellness expert and author of One Hot Mama: The Guide to Getting Your Mind and Body Back After Baby

“Robin Ray Green has written an essential handbook for the practice of holistic pediatrics, conceptually rooted in the profoundly illuminating paradigm of Traditional Chinese Medicine. She has creatively expanded upon the model of Five-Phase (Element) types first articu-lated in Between Heaven and Earth to produce an inspiring and emi-nently practical guide for parents and providers who seek to foster the optimal growth, health, and happiness of their children and patients. Kudos for a job well done!”
— Efrem Korngold, OMD, L.Ac., co-author of Between Heaven and Earth: A Guide to Chinese Medicine

“Robin Ray Green has given parents a comprehensive guide to raising their children using the time-tested framework of Chinese medicine’s Five-Phase model. As a pediatrician working with children for the past 30 years, I have found this approach highly effective in helping parents understand the unique characteristics and needs of their children. Robin’s book complements the work that Efrem Korngold and I have developed over the years and makes it her own. Her humor and compassion come across in every page as she teaches how to recog-nize a child’s Dominant Element and manage imbalances and health challenges. She offers practical solutions that include massage, diet, acupressure, and mindfulness practices that will heal your child from the inside out, which is a welcome resource for any parent.”
— Stephen Cowan, M.D., FAAP, author of Fire Child, Water Child: How Understanding the Five Types of ADHD Can Help You Improve Your Child’s Self-Esteem and Attention

"With Heal Your Child from the Inside Out, Robin Ray Green has produced a new and trailblazing type of book that takes Five-Element theory and makes it accessible and applicable for modern parents. This book gives parents practical strategies to implement a personal-ized holistic health regimen for their children, empowering them to improve health through focused alterations in the core components of healthy child development: diet, lifestyle, and emotional regulation. Robin also helps parents see how to best understand, communicate, guide, and direct their children based on their constitutional types and subsequent natural tendencies. Further, she provides insight and tech-niques for integrating that so-often neglected area of nurturing: healthy touch. This book provides a practical approach for integrating the best of ancient and modern theories for child rearing, and I have no doubt that parents who incorporate the ideas presented will see improvements in the health and well-being of their children and their families as a whole.”

“Ever wonder why so many kids these days seem to have so many chronic health issues? Why are so many children falling into an ‘un-wellness gap,’ where they aren’t majorly sick but aren’t completely well? Robin draws on her experience as a pediatric acupuncturist and a mother to explore why this is happening to our kids, and what can be done about it. Heal Your Child From the Inside Out will teach you a ‘new’ way to look at your child, based on the ‘old’ teachings of Tra-ditional Chinese Medicine. With Robin’s fun yet practical approach, you will understand your children’s unique nature, how best to nurture them, and how to create a custom healing plan to optimize their well-ness. This is a must-have guide for parents to understand the unique nature of each child and how to best support them in order to be happy, healthy, and well. Robin is on a mission to improve children’s health. This book will help parents do just that.”
