Children’s Health

Gentle, Safe and Effective Natural Pediatric Care 

Pediatrics is a specialized treatment category within Chinese Medicine. Julian Scott, an esteemed pediatric acupuncture physician since 1976 wrote the book Acupuncture in the Treatment of Children. In this book he lets the reader know that Chinese pediatric physicians were learning from Chinese medical textbooks and utilizing acupuncture with children as far back as the Song dynasty (960-1279). Chinese medicine continues to be a safe, gentle and effective treatment for dealing with childhood illnesses, relieving all types of childhood pains and supporting normal health for our children.Acupuncture Eases Pain For Children

Chinese medicine is more than acupuncture. Herbal medicine is utilized along with acupuncture to address acute childhood illnesses such as the common cold, earache, cough and digestive disturbances. Acupuncture and herbal medicine are also effective for treating chronic health issues such as allergies, eczema, bed wetting, hyperactivity, asthma and others. At Nature’s Wisdom Healing Center-Mary Cetan, we recommend a healing plan for our pediatric patients using a combination of healing supportive tools including acupuncture, acupressure, cupping, herbal medicine, nutrient rich supplements based on whole food, daily diet recommendations, other lifestyle recommendations, low level light therapy, Constitutional homeopathic remedies and UNDA Numbers homeopathic system. Our clinical pediatric approach is to respect the normal functioning of our youngest patients as we help them to move through their illness or injury to restore health.

In contrast to western medicine’s strong acting chemical drugs and variety of surgeries to care for children, our pediatric care respects the self regulating, still developing, vulnerable state of children’s health and uses a nature first, drugs last approach. Instead of relying on over the counter medication that suppress the natural physiology of children, parents source Dr. Mary to expertly prescribe liquid herbal pediatric formulas and chewable nutrient rich supplements. At Nature’s Wisdom Healing Center-Mary Cetan, we utilize the professional Chinese herbal pediatric products from Blue Poppy Pediatric Formulas and from Kan Herbs Gentle Warriors Pediatric Formulas. We also utilize homeopathic remedies including the UNDA homeopathic drainage numbers to move through the illness and support the return of normal physiology.  Another key to success with how we care for our children’s health is nutrition. We prescribe the nutrient rich supplements from Standard Process for our patients of all ages.  Learn more about the pediatric Rx products below.

Why Do We Recommend Whole Food Based Supplements?

Rx: herbs & foods from nature

Even though food is plentiful in our modern culture, most of our food is not nutrient rich.  Here are a few reasons why our food is not as nutritious as it needs to be.

  • the poor state of most soils that grow our food
  • the abundance of fast food that is consumed instead of real food
  • addictive non-foods (candies, chips, sodas, gummies, cookies, etc…)
  • the use of drugs that gobble up vitamins and minerals
  • the depleted digestive systems that don’t absorb food adequately
  • most people lack basic knowledge about the value of common sense nutrition

This is why we recommend that all of our pediatric patients take the “Children’s Wellness Triad” daily.  These three convenient chewable supplements are 1. Catalyn Chewable 2. Tuna Omega-3 Chewable 3. Congaplex Chewable from Standard Process.  Rich in the required daily vitamins, minerals and fatty acids, this dynamic trio helps to grow and protect the rapidly changing bodies of our children.




Dr. Mary also recommends a nutrient rich supplement schedule using the Standard Process Daily Fundamentals -General Health Pack for all people and especially for women who are planning to get pregnant or who are already pregnant.
