Children’s Health

Gentle, Safe and Effective Natural Pediatric Care 

 

Pediatrics is a specialized treatment category within Chinese Medicine and has been for over 1000 years. Julian Scott, an esteemed pediatric acupuncture physician and author of the book Acupuncture in the Treatment of Children informs us that Chinese pediatrics medical textbooks existed 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.

Chinese Medicine is natural medicine. Pediatric treatment options for Florida Board Certified Acupuncture Physicians include ancient Chinese Medicine along with modern lab testing and proven effective adjunct therapies. Parents can safely opt for natural medicine to address the common cold, earache, coughing, constipation, digestive disturbances, fever, and other health problems common to children. Natural medicine is also effective for chronic pediatric health issues such as unrelenting allergies, stubborn eczema, long lasting bed wetting, hyperactivity, and others. At Nature’s Wisdom Healing Center-Mary Cetan, we help our pediatric patients by selecting from a variety of tools. 

  • Acupuncture 
  • Acupressure 
  • Cupping 
  • Herbal Medicine 
  • Diet & Other Lifestyle Recommendations 
  • Chewable Whole Food Supplements 
  • Light Therapy 
  • Homeopathic Medicine including the UNDA Numbering System 
  • Laboratory tests including Hair Mineral Analysis, BrainSpan blood spot, and Blood Chemistry

Acupuncture Eases Pain For Children

Our solutions respect the normal physiology of our youngest patients as we help them move through their illness and restore normal health. Instead of relying on overthecounter medication that favor symptom relief and suppress the normal function, our pediatric care respects the self-regulating, still developing, vulnerable state of the child’s body and uses a NATURE (herbal) FIRSTDRUGS (chemical) LAST approach.

When looking for natural solutions to help with childhood illnesses, parents can opt for effective, safe, easy to administer liquid Chinese herbal pediatric formulas. At Nature’s Wisdom Healing Center-Mary Cetan, we use the professional Chinese herbal pediatric products from Kan Herbs Gentle Warriors Pediatric Formulas and from Blue Poppy Pediatric Formulas. We also use the UNDA homeopathic drainage system to clean out mucous and support the return of normal physiology.

Why Do We Recommend Whole Food Based Supplements?

Even though food is plentiful today due to modern farming methods and transportation efficiency, much of our food is not nutrient rich do to the depleted state of the soil and process the food goes through to get to the plate from the farm.  Other problems that rob our children of healthy nutrition are listed below:

  • The abundance and convenience of fast food that is consumed instead of real food
  • The addictive non-foods (candies, chips, sodas, cookies, etc.) that are offered as snacks and rewards
  • The over exposure to chemicals and use of chemical drugs that gobble up essential minerals and vitamins
  • The depleted digestive systems our children often have often due to the over-use of antibiotics
  • The fact that many people lack basic knowledge of common sense nutrition, food prep and cooking skills

To provide children with daily vitamins, minerals and fatty acids needed to grow a healthy body with a strong immune system, we recommend these chewable supplements from Stqndard Process:

Catalyn Chewable / Tuna Omega-3 Chewable / Congaplex Chewable
