Naturopathic pediatric care provides an opportunity to establish healthy choices from the beginning, with the goals of keeping children healthy in the short term and decreasing their chances of chronic illness in the long term.
Regular visits are encouraged to discuss expected milestones, nutrition, exercise and emotional health, and to troubleshoot any behavioural concerns. Physical exams are also conducted to ensure your child’s growth is on track.
Treatment is of course natural, and gentle and effective; as well as individualized to each child’s unique requirements. It may include the use of botanical medicines, supplements (vitamins, minerals, probiotics, etc.), homeopathic remedies and nutritional counseling.
Conditions commonly treated:
- Food sensitivities and intolerances
- Colic, constipation, diarrhea, IBD, IBS
- Cold, flu, strep, bronchitis, pneumonia
- Ear infections, eczema and rashes
- Attention disorders and behavioural concerns
Children thrive under naturopathic care and grow into vital adults!
