In our experience many common presentation of kids health issues are related to nutrient deficiency, reaction to normal food or exposure to toxic material in diet or environment eg additives in their diet or house hold chemicals etc.
At Integrative Health Clinic we take pride in managing the following conditions by observing these simple principles. The result is a happy thriving child and a happy vibrant family. If you don’t find your condition below please inquire here to see if we are able to help you.
Behavior issues Angry outbursts, tantrums, anxiety, OCD or oppositional behavior. These
behaviors are many a time related to physical problem eg abdominal pain from constipation,
nutritional deficiencies, lifestyle and stress factors. In our experience by addressing these factors
many children improve and thrive in their life.
Feeding issues, unsettled/irritable baby - reflux, colic By addressing underlying causes like food
allergy and nutritional deficiency, stress and use of gentle herbs resolves most of these issues
Recurrent Infections- ears, throat, sinus and chest infections, gastroenteritis and viral infections Common nutritional deficiencies can undermine the immune system. When these nutrients are
optimized with nutrient supplement (based on testing) and varied nutrient rich diet their
immune system often improves. The child’s cycle of recurrent infections and frequent antibiotic
use can be prevented.
Allergies Eczema and asthma: assessment of allergen, supporting the immune system through
nutrients and a nutrient rich diet, non-toxic lifestyle, improving gut flora and treatment of skin
and breathing technique improves allergic conditions.
ADHD It is known that certain nutritional deficiencies eg iron can affect children’s ability to
focus and learn. Also lifestyle factors like additive free diet, good quality sleep and play in green
outdoor helps focus and attention. At Integrative Health Clinic we look to test and correct
nutritional deficiencies and empower parents to make life affirming lifestyle changes.
Poor growth in height or/and weight or obesity Common nutrients like iron and zinc are
essential for growth. Similarly different nutrient deficiencies and hormonal imbalance can lead
to insulin resistance, weight gain etc. At Integrative Health Clinic we aim to diagnose nutrient
deficiencies and optimize them safely with regular monitoring. We have seen satisfying results
with this simple approach.
