Is your child sick regularly?
Recurring illnesses can keep kids home from childcare and school, taking time away from socialization and learning.
Naturopathic medicine addresses this in a meaningful way, one that is tailored to their specific needs, for the purpose of restoring good health long term.
Children respond very well to naturopathic care.
Why? Because we’re able to individualise treatment to suit their specific needs during the various stages of growth and development.
Many children’s health conditions come on suddenly and rapidly, which can be scary. But with the right treatment, we can support their natural ability to heal and work to prevent future illness.
Your child is not simply a smaller version of you, their bodies are physiologically different in the way they respond to illness and treatment. They are more susceptible to infections and they feel the side effects more deeply, so reducing their discomfort is just as important as addressing the cause of illness.
At Body Institute, we offer a holistic approach to nutrition
Children have different nutritional needs due to the rapid physical and mental growth and development that occurs during childhood – particularly during the first 3 years of life.
Diet is a cornerstone of lifelong health and healthy eating habits from an early age have long lasting impacts throughout life.
Nutritional deficiencies can be common in kids that always seem to be coming down with something – particularly when they also happen to be fussy eaters. These deficiencies can interfere with physical growth, immune function and cognitive development.
At Body Institute, we work with you to correct any nutritional deficiencies while establishing varied and balanced eating habits to improve overall health.
We can help your child overcome:
- Upset tummies, colic and reflux
- Cradle cap
- Frequent Asthma attacks
- Fussy eating and sensory based feeding issues
- Frequent urinary tract infections
- Allergies and intolerances
- Frequent coughs, colds and ear infections
- Poor growth and development, failure to thrive
- Frequent antibiotic use
- Concentration and cognitive development
- Study stress
We’re here to offer you and your child qualified advice and reliable, natural treatments for their specific health and wellness needs.
Our aim is to give your little one every opportunity to reach their full potential, by ensuring they’re happy, healthy and full of vitality.
Depending on the condition and the child’s individual presentation, herbal medicines can be utilised to support digestive health, regulate allergic response, boost immune function and kill disease causing viral, bacterial, and fungal pathogens.
We always tailor treatment to ensure it is suitable for children, keeping in mind that children are not just ‘little adults’.
