Health Care for Children


Some children sail through childhood and simply need to optimize health and nutrition, while other children, often with a genetic propensity, have more complex medical or mental health challenges requiring multiple medications, specialists and mental health care.

Advances in medicine are finding that the origin of some, if not many, chronic diseases is inflammation originating from our gastrointestinal immune system and that some, not all, bodily diseases may trigger “brain diseases” with a cascade of mental health – behavioral conditions.

Diseases affecting children’s organs such as the lungs (asthma), skin (eczema), and brain (anxiety, OCD, depression) may actually have origins in the G.I. track.

Testing for sources of food sensitivities, malabsorption of nutrients and inflammation help to take a deeper look at illnesses.

Coordinating and communicating with Pediatric specialists is part of the overall care.
