Naturopathy for kids
Children are not just little adults
Finding an experienced naturopath for kids is important. Kids have unique nutritional demands and biochemical needs that differ to those of adults. Finding a Naturopath who fully understands these differences and can work with the complexities of babies and children isn’t always easy.
Periods of rapid growth and development, the lengthening and hardening of bones as well as brain, organ and hormonal development mean the demand for nutrients in a child’s body are enormous. Our experienced children’s naturopath can help guide you in ensuring your child has the nutrients their growing bodies need to become healthy adults.
Common Childhood conditions that our
naturopath works with:
Treating Eczema in
Children with Naturopathy
Having a child with eczema can often be all consuming. It requires lots of management to support and reduce flares and keep your child comfortable, constant moisturising, interventions to minimise scratching, infection and the list goes on. Whilst often thought of as only a topical condition, eczema really is much more than skin-deep. It can be challenging to treat as it requires a holistic approach, including an in-depth look at a child's gut immunity and overall digestive health. Naturopathic treatment for children with eczema includes reviewing blood tests, an in-depth examination, dietary advice and nutrient rebuilding.
Treating Constipation in
Children with Naturopathy
Having a child with constipation can often be a whole family affair, with children experiencing abdominal pain, nausea, appetite changes and stress/anxiety around toileting. Naturopathic treatment for children with constipation can be very effective with dietary changes, practical tips and well researched supplementation of prebiotics and probiotics. A consultation includes reviewing any previous testing including stool samples, an in-depth examination, dietary advice and nutrient rebuilding.
