“The last 40 years have shown a global epidemic rise in children suffering from poor health. Every child should be given the opportunity to be on a path of robust, long-term good health, the most important factor in determining happiness and realizing the full potential of body, mind and soul.”
– Dr. Murray Clarke, ND., D.Hom., L.Ac., at the 2010 European Union Conference on Children’s Health
Dr. Clarke holds licenses and doctorates in three fields of medicine: Naturopathic Medicine, Homeopathic Medicine and Oriental Medicine. His credentials include professorships at several Los Angeles based institutions including Emperors College of Oriental Medicine, Samra University, and American University of Complimentary Medicine. He is the founder of the International Academy of Holistic Pediatrics (IAHP).
Since 1988, Dr. Murray Clarke, has been welcoming young patients to his world-renowned Pediatric Medical Clinic in Los Angeles and is deeply committed to educating parents and health practitioners about how to safeguard children from all that can compromise growth and full development.
He has become the most sought-after holistic pediatrician in California and is known for restoring health to infants and children with conditions that are difficult to diagnose and treat: from allergies, asthma and eczema to gastrointestinal disorders, behavioral disorders, ADD, ADHD and Asperger’s Syndrome.
Dr. Clarke is one of the few doctors in the world to treat and cure autistic children. Recently, a former patient who had been diagnosed with autism at age 3, proudly reported that he is now a straight A student in high school.
“I have had the privilege of knowing Dr. Murray Clarke as a friend and colleague for over twenty years. I consider him to be the most knowledgeable alternative practitioner for children working in the field today.” – Kathleen K. Fry, MD – Past President American Holistic Medical Association
Drawing on his 25 years of practice, Dr. Clarke authored the highly acclaimed book, “Natural Baby-Healthy Child: Alternative Health Care Solutions from Pre-conception through Childhood”.
It’s an essential medical road map for parents to correct, enhance and protect their children’s health starting with pre-conception and preparation by the mother, into pregnancy, and on throughout childhood.
It has also become a valuable reference for health care practitioners who recognize the healing power of his prescription: proper diet, environmental detoxification, nutritional supplementation and holistic modalities including homeopathy, naturopathy, osteopathy, chiropractic and acupuncture. Many case histories of children who have been successfully treated by Dr. Clarke are included as well as deeply personal stories from parents who witnessed their child’s future dramatically shift under Dr. Clarke’s care – from debilitation to the “opportunity for life.”
“Dr. Murray Clarke is a holistic medical phenomenon. My now pregnant daughter was fortunate to be able to see Dr. Clarke in person as a child. He worked miracles in her life, which still affect her health today. I have deep respect for and trust in Dr. Clarke.” – Cathy B. June 2015
Dr. Clarke is the Founder and President of ChildLife Essentials, the first complete line of nutritional supplements formulated exclusively for infants and children. Launched in 2000, ChildLife Essentials is now distributed throughout the world and has become the number one leading children’s supplement in America and China.
