Naturopathy For Kids (1-18)

Health In The Bay Natuorpathy For KidsFirstly, what is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a generic term used to describe a philosophy of healing and wellness. It covers many different types of healing methods or modalities, some of which have been around for thousands of years.

It is an holistic approach that works with the natural healing properties of the body. This method requires a total health picture based on current symptoms, health/family history and life interactions (diet, stress, activity levels, environmental factors). Treatment is then a process which addresses the symptoms, stimulates the body’s healing mechanisms and recommends specific lifestyle changes to maintain health and wellness.


What Can Naturopathy Do For Your Child?

Josie believes Naturopathy has a lot to offer children (1-18yrs). Primarily it will help create and maintain good health and wellbeing by:

  • Focusing on the causes of your child’s condition while treating the symptoms.
  • Strengthening the immune system – helping them to better deal with everyday toxins/pollution. This also contributes to longevity.
  • Using treatments that are safe, non-invasive, with no side effects.
  • Educating you and your child about the components that contribute to good health.
  • Allowing your child to grow up with a sense of knowledge and responsibility for his/her own health.
