Family Health Care – Children’s Health

Children’s health problems generally focus around food selection and lifestyle recommendations. Health issues with infants, children and teens are carefully DISCUSSED AT THE initial pediatric VISIT DONE WITH THE DOCTOR and a unique plan is given for each child. Typically children are treated primarily with diet, supplement and homeopathic medicines.

Dr. Trenciansky and Dr. Bennett bring years of experience managing health issues of young mothers and their children. Often the health of the mother and child are closely related, optimal results are achieved when both are cared for. By altering a mother’s and child’s nutritional program, making dietary suggestions and supplementing appropriately these assist in preventing and treating many health concerns of a family- asthma, eczema, colic, ear infections, bronchitis, chronic sinus discharge.

Children’s Health Treatment Program Summary

When a pediatric patient begins treatment at the clinic, the time frame for therapy is usually monthly visits for three months followed by quarterly follow-up evaluations with the supervising doctor. Typically a patient begins with an initial pediatricvisit which will probably involve an inquiry into the mother’s health, depending on the age of the child. Sometimes, depending on the age of the child, we will order a food sensitivity test with a follow-up visit with the doctor to advise on the first four weeks of therapy using diet, simple vitamin and mineral support, herbal medicine and sometimes homeopathic therapy. The patient then goes away for two weeks, starts the treatment program and returns for a brief visit to see how the program is working. Then another re-test and visit is scheduled in two weeks to re-evaluate the effectiveness of the therapy and to modify the program for another 4 weeks. At the 8th week another retest and reevaluation is done and again the program is modified for another 4 weeks. At the final 12th week, the program results are now conclusive, the child is feeling better and the program that is being followed is typically very close to the long-term recommendations of the supervising doctor.

To help you get an idea of the treatment for a condition such as asthma, here is a sample overview:

Commonly Used Pediatric Asthma Treatment Program:

  • Evaluate for food sensitivities. Stimulate gut function
  • Evaluate for nutrient deficiencies which might diminish optimum lung and immune function
  • Initiate immune program for 12 weeks
  • Consider recommending essential fatty acids (salmon oil), B12, minerals, and homeopathic medicines for lung function
  • Diet- Avoid food allergens
  • Follow the patient for one year, especially over the winter cycle of colds and flus. Treat all respiratory infections with herbal medicine and homeopathic medicines to avert the use of antibiotic therapy
