Children’s Health

children's health

Kids come in all shapes and sizes as do their health concerns. The thing kids have in common is that they respond even better than adults to naturopathic therapies. Their inherent healing systems are not damaged by alcohol, years of stress and lack of exercise. Even behavioral problems can be addressed by diet changes and surprisingly kids can do better with consistency in these changes than adults do.

At Natural Medicine Plus, we are ready to assist in a multitude of ways. We are trained to provide naturopathic primary care services which include first born exams and screening tests, perform routine wellness exams, and to evaluate and treat common childhood ailments.

We work with teenagers on their issues in puberty and emerging sexuality. We spend time to assess lifestyle, family influences and environmental factors that might be influencing your child’s health including: diet, sleep, stress, allergies, environmental toxicities and nutritional deficiencies. We use an array of treatment strategies really geared to address underlying problems and choosing the least invasive and less toxic therapies including dietary strategies, nutritional supplementation, herbal medicine, and homeopathy.

At Natural Medicine Plus, we know when more aggressive therapies may be needed and will educate you about choices. When necessary, we help you with referral to specialists and continue to integrate our care in the best interest of your child.
