Individuals of all ages experience the stress of varying types daily. The body’s natural ability to protect itself is negatively influenced by many factors that include exposure to environmental pollutants, food additives, work, and academic pressures, and decreasing ways to allow for rest. Increased tension decreases the body’s ability to fight disease and illness and cause irritability, poor concentration, lessened immunity, and more. Conventional medicine often dictates medication to relieve symptoms. While sometimes required, prescription drugs can produce other problems that are just as serious. There is another option. Consider natural, holistic pediatric treatment in Arlington for your children.
Children respond readily to natural treatment that emphasizes disease prevention. A naturopathic pediatrician will diagnose and treat the disease to give children a better start on a healthy life. Solutions for a variety of disorders usually include one or more of the following: acupuncture, homeopathy, dietary changes, vitamins and minerals, medicinal herbs, nutritional supplementation, and craniosacral therapy (gentle manipulation of the head and spine).
Naturopathic treatment for children is valid for:
- colds and coughs
- ear infections
- ADD and ADHD
- minor head injuries
- slight lacerations
- many other health problems
An initial consultation with a naturopathic physician will include a comprehensive health assessment with parental involvement. Newborns up through adolescents can be successfully treated with minimal discomfort, no harsh chemicals, and focus on the patient rather than dealing only with symptoms.
