My toddler was consistently getting colds. These colds would turn into bronchitis and croup. The pediatrician diagnosed him as mildly asthmatic. He was given two types of inhalers. I am a believer in holistic medicine and wanted to see if I could improve my child’s immune system. I went to see John on a parent’s recommendation. John asked me questions about his symptoms. He even asked me about symptoms that I knew he had but didn’t connect it with his colds. John said that his symptoms were those of a food allergy. He asked me to not give him milk for 6 weeks since this is one of the most common food allergy. My son has been cold free and has not used his inhaler for over a year. This summer I was a bit lacks with my child’s dairy intake. His cough came back. I stopped all dairy before it got worse and it went away. It was such a simple diagnosis but one his pediatrician missed. I’m not saying you should not take your child to a western doctor. But there is no rule that says your child or even you can’t have a western doctor and John Nieters as your holistic doctor.
