Naturopathic Pediatrics includes the assessment, diagnosis and naturopathic treatment of infants and children, who tend to respond especially well to gentle and natural medicines. Children have strong constitutions, and when they fall ill, these strong constitutions do not require harsh and potent medicines, but instead simply require support and guidance to return to vitality.
Naturopathic Medicine delivers safe and effective treatment approaches for a broad range of pediatric health conditions, including:
Digestive: colic, indigestion, reflux, gas, diarrhea, constipation, “stomach aches”, food sensitivities, introducing solid foods to infants, feeding issues
Dermatological: eczema, dermatitis, rashes, cradle cap, “acne” (internal link to “Acne” webpage), psoriasis
Immune: frequent or persistent “colds and flus” (internal link to “Keeping Healthy during the Cold and Flu Season” webpage), allergies, asthma, bronchitis, fevers, sinus congestion, ear infections, urinary tract infections
Mental-emotional: learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD, nightmares, insomnia, depression, anxiety, fears, temper tantrums, behavioural problems
Developmental: well-child visits, teething, growing pains, health issues of puberty, developmental disorders
Therapies that may be considered for your child include dietary modifications, nutritional supplementation, homeopathic medicine, herbal medicine and lifestyle recommendations.
