Children’s Health

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< id="target-id6657b9c729c58" class="collapseomatic_content "> 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< id="target-id6657b9c729d05" class="collapseomatic_content "> By addressing underlying causes like food allergy and nutritional deficiency, stress and use of gentle herbs resolves most of these issues quickly.

Recurrent Infections- ears, throat, sinus and chest infections, gastroenteritis and viral infections< id="target-id6657b9c729d3b" class="collapseomatic_content "> Common nutritional deficiencies can undermine the immune system.
