Many couples are getting married and seeking to start a family later in life than their parents or grandparents did. This, along with a number of other factors of modern life can sometimes make conceiving and carrying a pregnancy to term more difficult. We have been successfully using natural approaches for over 15 years to help couples achieve their dream of starting a family. Our approach is gentle, natural and has been very effective for most of the couples we have assisted.
Just as children’s minds mature and develop through experience, so do their bodies. The kinds of health challenges a child experiences, and how their bodies overcome them, can have a powerful impact on their level of health as an adult. Our approach to treating kids takes this in to account. We avoid treatments that are disruptive to the body’s normal functioning and see every health challenge as an opportunity to support the healthy maturation of their immunity, central nervous system and overall physiology.
A Note About Childhood Vaccinations
Sadly, childhood vaccination has become an emotionally charged and highly political issue in California. While many parents are comfortable with the current schedule of vaccines, some are not. For parents concerned about adverse effects of vaccination we provide counseling on how to minimize risks, including supportive therapies near the time of vaccination which we believe further reduce the risk of adverse effects.
Naturopathic doctors are trained in the full range of medical conditions and symptoms that most people see a family practitioner for, including annual checkups, infections, allergies, asthma, diabetes, acute and chronic pain, fatigue, insomnia and many more. While we treat many of the same conditions as our allopathic colleagues, the way that we treat them is quite different, of course. As with all health conditions, our primary aim is to identify the underlying factors that are preventing the body from functioning optimally and using therapies that support the body’s inherent capacity to restore itself to health.
