Thanks to the vitality of youth, often small changes in diet (for the breastfeeding mother or the weaned infant/child) sometimes combined with short term nutritional, herbal or homeopathic assistance is all that is required for babies and children to return to and maintain good health.
We understand that your child’s illnesses can be stressful – for both you and your child. However, we consider many childhood ailments as normal, inevitable and sometimes necessary challenges to the development of a strong immune system and to some extent, part of their normal learning and development. Our commitment is to help you find the right balance and information to feel confident you are doing your best to support the healthy development of your child.
We can also help you prepare for a natural response to many childhood ailments and accidents in your own home with homeopathic kits for the home and natural remedies for first aid such as: bee stings and insect bites, minor burns, cuts, abrasions and bruises and other minor problems.
We always recommend that you seek treatment for any childhood illness as quickly as possible to avoid chronic conditions developing. The more quickly these issues are addressed, the more successful the treatment outcomes.
