Pediatric integrative medicine uses a comprehensive approach to achieve health and healing for children and teens. The focus is on healing the whole person. This is accomplished by treating the child as an individual and acknowledging the variety of factors that influence well-being. These factors include diet, nutritional imbalances, genetics, underlying infections, sleep, exercise, toxin exposures and stress.
Appropriate therapeutic regimens that are considered include evidence based global health modalities. The integrative approach to caring for children and teens neither rejects conventional medicine, nor embraces alternative/complementary therapies uncritically.
