Whether you are an executive at work or the executive of your home, having your family’s confidential care all under one roof, for one flat fee, simplifies life and can help your Family Physician contextualize each individual’s health. Adding the rigors of medical science to country doctor like caring often arrives at a clearer diagnosis and actionable plans for healing.
Pediatric and adolescent care is provided from age three through college. While some children sail through childhood benefiting from optimizing lifestyle and nutrition, other children, often with genetic propensity, have more complex medical or mental health challenges requiring a deeper look into its underlying cause, along with coordinated specialist care. For all ages, we can explore the relationship between the gut, food sensitivities and systemic inflammation that can be triggers for medical diseases and brain challenges.
When it comes to children, parents are in great fear when health issues frequently reoccur and when problems such as gastrointestinal problems, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic eczema, asthma, and headaches.
As the family doctor, we serve as the hub of the wheel in which spokes go out to various specialists.
Some children sail through childhood and simply need to optimize health and nutrition, while other children, often with a genetic propensity, have more complex medical or mental health challenges requiring multiple medications, specialists and mental health care.
Advances in medicine are finding that the origin of some, if not many, chronic diseases is inflammation originating from our gastrointestinal immune system and that some, not all, bodily diseases may trigger “brain diseases” with a cascade of mental health – behavioral conditions.
Diseases affecting children’s organs such as the lungs (asthma), skin (eczema), and brain (anxiety, OCD, depression) may actually have origins in the G.I. track.
Testing for sources of food sensitivities, malabsorption of nutrients and inflammation help to take a deeper look at illnesses.
Coordinating and communicating with Pediatric specialists is part of the overall care.
