Holistic Pediatrics

A philosophical and practical approach to pediatric care that focuses on the principles of health and wellness. Dedicated to integrative treatment using natural methods to stimulate healing, treat illness, and recover balance.

The principles of holistic pediatrics are inclusive of many philosophies that include attachment parenting, Chinese medicine, homeopathic medicine, herbal medicine, and chiropractic, and nutrition.

Holistic pediatrics is really a way of caring for children, rather than merely treating them. Whenever possible a holistic approach will avoid treatments that have potential side effects or dangers, favoring gentle methods that stimulate healing and correct imbalances. A holistic view seeks the cause of symptoms and also focuses on prevention of recurrences and complete cure. By contrast, conventional medicine tends to focus on temporary relief of a symptom for a limited amount of time.
