LITERARY LOCAL | The Holistic Rx for Kids: Parenting Healthy Brains and Bodies in a Changing World


BOLINGBROOK–Board-certified holistic family physician and author of The Holistic Rx Madiha M. Saeed, MD shifts the focus from adults to children in her timely new book.

It was launched in early November 2021 and is part of her best-selling functional medicine children’s book series.

Dr. Saeed shares that COVID-19 and all that came with it proved to be the biggest challenge while completing her latest release. Mentored by other other functional medicine practitioners along the way, her inspiration for writing this book was her children, who are also up and coming world-wide holistic influencers.
