Growing Healthy Children: A Framework for Understanding Health. Ellen Allen’s book refocuses the idea of health and growth “on what should be happening in development rather than on looking for symptoms of illness.” The author draws upon her holistic observations, as well as findings from scientific research, to lead the reader toward a broader understanding of many factors that contribute to the growth of a healthy child. Of particular interest is a discussion of how the experiences of some stress and illness should actually be considered essential milestones on the path to optimal health. This book presents child-care givers with numerous suggestions for simple interventions that will help children achieve happy, healthy lives. Ellen’s delightful prose rings with warmth and caring—like those of a trusted relative or friend, making the book easy to understand for the lay person. Optimal health is a universal goal. Ellen Allen’s book on children’s health presents a new paradigm for considering health and illness. Drawing on more than two decades of experience operating a holistic, naturopathic health clinic in Australia, she will describe the synergistic use of methods from the East and the West for the promotion of optimal health, especially in children. The book draws upon Ellen’s knowledge of energy work, nutritional therapy, herbal medicine, homeopathic and phenolic therapy, functional medicine, and food as medicine.

Ellen Allen has operated a clinic for children since 1983, first in Western Australia and now in Tasmania, Australia. Ellen received a Bachelor of Science degree from Fordham University, NY, in 1968 and the ND (Diploma of Naturopathy) in 1983 at Dunn’s Herbal Clinic in Western Australia. She earned a post-graduate diploma in Clinical Nutrition with R. Buist at the International Acadamy of Nutrition in Sydney, Australia, in 1996. In 2001, she obtained the Advanced Diploma of Naturopathy, as well as a post-graduate certificate in Traditional Chinese Medicine at Cahay Herbal Labs, which is associated with Zheijing University, China (PRC). In 2003 she was granted a post-graduate diplomka in Art Therapy by Dr. Cornelia Elbrecht of Melbourne, Australia. She is a member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society (ATMS) and the Australian Naturopathic Practitioners Association (ANPA). After being introduced to basic concepts of energy healing, Ellen developed a system that has evolved over the past 15 years into a quick and effective therapy that deals with energy balance, effects of excessice stress, and physical and behavioral symptoms. The theory operates on the premise that excessive stress blocks healing processes, and that clearing these blocks allows natural repair to occur. She does not treat medical conditions as such, but focuses on supporting function. Ellen conducts her practice within this framework, drawing on skills from her training in several other traditions. Ellen Allen participated as one of a panel of experts in the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) television series “second Opinion,” addressing topics such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Attention Deficit Disorder in 2005. “Second Opinion” provides an excellent forum for alternative and medical practitioners to discuss their views on different conditions. We hope that this book will also contribute to enhanced understanding about—and between—health providers of all persuasions, as this can only serve to benefit those suffering from illness.
