Children are not just small adults, they actually have very specific needs. The treatments used for their wellness are very different from the prescriptions we recommend for adults. The type of illnesses most common in childhood are very unique to children, and as such, different clinical principles are applied in the care of infants, toddlers, and school-aged children.
In the treatment of children, I rely on the use of carefully selected herbal medicines, homeopathic remedies, nutritional guidelines, and emotional support. I offer well-child examinations and check-ups more frequently in a child’s first two years, and then four times per year from age three years and up.
Conditions that I treat and support at my clinic in North Vancouver, include but are not limited to the following:
- Attention disorders including ADHD
- Auto-immune conditions
- Digestive disorders including IBS, constipation, diarrhea, Crohn’s, malabsorption
- Food allergies and intolerances
- Immune support
- Respiratory conditions including flu, Strep, bronchitis, pneumonia
- Ear infections
- Skin rashes, eczema
Starting a child on a naturopathic program right from the start is the best way to ensure optimal immune function, hormonal balance, and growth. Children thrive under naturopathic care and grow healthfully into vital adults.
