A Functional Medicine Approach to Children's Health
Most parents aspire to raise a happy, healthy child. While childhood illness can quite stressful for you, it’s a natural part of them developing a strong immune system and healthy development. However, when they do get sick, and they always do, what is important is how quickly they recover. Our practitioners can help your child to support a healthy immune system so they are not subject to severe and repeated infections and illnesses.
A typical child is exposed to refined foods, excessive sugar, environmental toxins, vaccinations, antibiotics and other medications. This has a negative effect on children’s health and contributes to many health problems, especially as a child’s health status for the rest of their life is formed in childhood. We recommend that any childhood illnesses are always addressed as soon as possible, in order to prevent chronic conditions from occurring.
At the London Centre for functional medicine, our functional medicine practitioners that specialize in children can help advise on a matter of areas related to children’s health such as introduction to solids, immunisation support, optimal childhood nutrition and weaning your baby, as well as advise you on appropriate remedies to have on hand at home for infections and minor conditions. We understand that changing a child’s diet be difficult at times, however, we will be able to help you and your child to make gradual changes that can create a significant difference.
