Whether you are a seasoned parent or a new parent, navigating your child's health isn't always easy. Children specific conditions and areas of focus may include:

  • Feeding, nutrition, and growth

  • Food sensitivities

  • Digestive concerns

  • Sleep issues

  • Frequent infections

  • Teething

  • ADHD and autism

  • Anxiety and depression

  • Skin, hair, and nails health

  • Preventative well child visits

DIAGNOSTICS & TREATMENTS

To get to the root of a condition we start with the initial visit. Your child's overall health is complex, affected by genetics, food, stress, internal biochemistry and your external environment so it makes sense that a full-comprehensive initial visit is the first and most important step. Further investigative tests are available to assist in diagnosis, thereby refining treatment:

  • toxic metals analysis

  • food allergy and sensitivity testing

  • standard lab testing such as vitamin and mineral status (e.g. iron stores), metabolic panel, blood hormones, inflammatory markers, etc. 

TREATMENTS YOU MAY EXPECT

  • Nutrition and diet recommendations

  • Vitamin, mineral, or nutrient supplementation

  • Herbal medicine formula or single herb

  • Homeopathic formulas

  • Counselling & lifestyle recommendations

  • Referral to other healthcare providers and resources as needed
