Unfortunately, children (and adults!) are under more stress than ever. Factors such as pollution, academic pressure, food additives, living at an increased pace, exposure to violence, and fewer opportunities for play all allow tension to manifest itself in the body and decrease normal function and response to illness and disease. This can lead to reduced immunity, irritability, physical symptoms and poor concentration. Traditional medicine usually focuses on medication for symptoms. While sometimes necessary, prescription drugs can create other problems just as severe. There is another answer. Consider the benefits of naturopathic pediatric doctor treatment in Monroe for your children.
Children readily respond to natural treatment. The emphasis is on illness prevention. A naturopathic pediatrician is trained to diagnose and treat disease and give children a head start on a healthy life. Treatments for a variety of ailments usually include one or more of the following: dietary changes, medicinal herbs, homeopathy, nutritional supplementation, acupuncture, craniosacral therapy (gentle movements along the head and spine) and vitamins and minerals.
Children can be treated for issues such as
- colds and coughs
- ear infections
- ADD and ADHD
- minor lacerations and head injuries, and
- a wide variety of additional health problems.
An initial consultation will include a comprehensive health evaluation with parental input. Newborns through adolescents can be effectively treated with minimum discomfort, no harmful chemicals, and attention to the patient rather than focusing only on symptoms.
