CHILDREN’S HEALTH

Children’s health can go up and down like a yo-yo, especially with their exposure to others in the school or day care environment. Their immune systems, gut health and nutrient levels can need support and strengthening to allow them to thrive in their active lives.

Our children are exposed to the same toxins we are from both environmental sources and internal, however as their immune systems are still developing, this exposure can lead to ill health.

Good dietary choices are imperative for children to assist their bodies to cope with these factors and sometimes naturopathic support is needed to get them back to optimal health, or to encourage their bodies to perform at their best.

The practitioners at our clinic all have their own children or have had a great deal of experience working with children. We understand that the stress of an unwell child is very draining to the parents. We all want the very best for our children and supporting them with natural therapies can ensure they have the energy they need for learning and play, all whilst maintaining a strong immune system.
