Natural Remedies For Children

As a parent, when our child gets sick, one of the first things we want to do is get them well. Some people start dosing their children with everything in the medicine cabinet while others will head off to the doctor. There may be other options.

Even some physicians agree that prescribing antibiotics and other drugs is not necessarily recommended for some childhood conditions, and that often doctors feel pressured by parents to prescribe something even though they know that the child will get better in a few days without drug intervention.

Where parents are looking for natural treatment options to help their children get well, or they find themselves in a situation where there is a recurring cycle of illness that more conventional treatment does not appear to be solving then we may be able to help.

Naturopathy provides treatment through herbal medicines, vitamin and mineral supplements, and dietry advice which work with the body to restore health.

Osteopathy, Cranial Osteopathy and Visceral Osteopathy, Massage and Aromatherapy, and Orthobionomy, work through gentle mechanical correction of the body which helps to restore circulation ,lymphatic drainage, and immune system function.

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine help to restore energy balance in the body allowing the immune system and other body regulation systems to restore health.
