Recurrent Childhood Infections
Many children today experience recurrent, chronic and/or persistent infections such as upper respiratory infections (URI's), digestive infections (gastro, rotavirus), and middle ear infections. The common cold, nasopharyngitis, sinusitis and tonsillitis are some of the most common infections your child will encounter.
Fatigue is a very common complaint that Naturopaths are presented with. Causes are many and varied and it is never as simple as taking a vitamin or getting mmore sleep. You can suffer from mental, physical and often a combination of both when presenting with fatigue. Fatigue presents differently for everyone but definitely the feeling of overwhelming tiredness is the most common symptom, especially despite adequate sleep.
Allergies & Intolerances
Over the last 50 years, there has been a dramatic rise in allergic disorders in children. Conditions such as hayfever, dermatitis, eczema and asthma are now very common in children.
Food sensitivities or intolerances are less dramatic than true food allergies, but can often be harder to identify. These are commonly caused by wheat and dairy, but in reality, any food can cause an intolerance.
Happy Healthy Kids
As parents, we want our kids to have the best opportunities to reach their real potential. It doesn't matter which area of life you think of, either school or with sports or hobbies. In order to be their best, they need to be healthy.
Generally Naturally Dynamic Health Practitioners find that when clients experience an episode of constipation they will be drawn to the over the counter laxatives, which will offer some relief in the short term. In the long term they can be actually dangerous and make your constipation worse. The problem with this quick fix is that it never looks at the many possible causes of constipation.
While we all feel sad, moody or low from time to time, some people experience these feelings intensely, for long periods of time (weeks, months or even years) and sometimes without any apparent reason. Depression is more than just a low mood - it's a serious illness that has an impact on both physical and mental health.
