Minimizing the exposures our children have can
prevent future illness and/or disease.
Reasons for the use of Integrative Pediatrics can include the desire to support the body’s natural healing process, the wish to explore all treatment options, and preference for less invasive treatments. Integrative Pediatrics has the potential to expand treatment options for your child and the ability to introduce new approaches to chronic conditions. Integrative medicine prioritizes health and wellness from childhood through adulthood.
Our practitioners begin with a detailed history of reactions, environmental factors, and current dietary habits to formulate a personalized plan for your child to alleviate their symptoms. Many illnesses and diseases we experience as adults are a result of our exposures as a child. Therefore, if we can be proactive in minimizing the exposures our children have we can more successfully prevent future illness and/or disease.
