Children's Health

Children’s health problems can leave even the most optimistic parent with a nagging sense of worry. Luckily, natural health practitioners can get to the root of the problem and provide a lasting cure.

We find that parents are often amazed at the effectiveness of natural health care at treating common children's ailments, including upper respiratory infections, ear and sinus infections, ADD/ADHD, eczema and asthma. While it’s not always easy to change a child’s “lifestyle,” natural health practitioners can help guide you and your child through gradual changes.

Annual wellness exams are an important component of preventative health. Pediatric wellness exams include a comprehensive assessment of body systems, screening physical exam and personalized preventative screening program to evaluate your child's current physical health and growth. Make an appointment.

Most often, pediatric health problems can be treated with naturopathic medicine, homeopathy, nutrition, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.
