Children + Babies
Babies and children can respond exceptionally well to natural medicine. While little ones will often get sick quickly, they will also often recover quickly when given the right treatment and support – due to their natural vitality – which is why they can respond so well to natural medicine treatments.
Naturopathic medicine, herbal medicine, nutritional medicine, homoeopathy, Chinese medicine and massage therapy care can all be beneficial and safe therapies for babies and children.
These natural medicine approaches can also be used as preventative medicine to enhance your child’s developing immune system and to support and maximise their healthy growth and development.
While childhood illness can be stressful for both you and your child, they are a natural part of developing a strong immune system and their healthy development. However, it is how badly they get sick and also how quickly they recover that is important. Our practitioners can help you to support a vital immune system in your child, so that they can recover quickly and are not subject to severe and repeated infections and illnesses.
As a child’s health status for the rest of their life is formed in childhood, we recommend that any childhood illnesses are always addressed as soon as possible, to continually encourage healthy body responses and function, and to prevent chronic conditions from occurring. The quicker a childhood health issue is addressed, the more successful the treatment outcome.
At Remède, our Naturopaths that have substantial experience with children can help with advice about issues such as weaning your baby, introduction to solids, immunisation support and childhood nutrition. They can also give information about appropriate “first aid” natural remedies to have on hand at home for infections and minor conditions.
