Many parents are often in a position where they have to consider what are the best medical decisions for their child. Breast feed or bottle feed? Vaccinate now or wait? Use antibiotics or wait the sickness out, medicate for ADD or not? There is an alternative to the standard options given to you by your child’s pediatric doctor. Dr. Felty works as a natural and holistic medicine consultant who can offer you safe, viable options and education to be your child's best health advocate. Common pediatric conditions like allergies, asthma, depression, anxiety, autism, behavioral issues, digestive issues, ADD, recurrent infections, childhood trauma, and developmental delays, can all be effectively supported with natural therapies and education. Dr. Felty is a trauma specialist who can help your child regulate emotions and release any trauma stored in their nervous system.
Your child’s pediatrician will still play a primary role in the care of your child. When emergency situations arise, diagnostic tests are needed or when prescription medications must be utilized, your relationship with your child’s pediatrician will be very important. However if you are interested in managing a variety of your child’s health concerns, like constipation, eczema, and sinus infections for example, without the use of antibiotics, Dr. Felty can help. The use of herbs, homeopathy, vitamins or supplements can be just as effective as drugs for addressing various health issues without the chances of negative side effects. In addition, because they work to support the natural ability of the body to resist things like infection children managed with natural therapies can have stronger immune systems and are less likely to suffer from recurrent infections.
Parents often observe that although a child is being medicated for a particular condition, they are still not symptom free. Children represent the most vital and dynamic humans in our society. Their bodies are so unadulterated and pure that they possess an amazing healing potential. This healing potential can be easily unlocked with the proper natural therapies. By utilizing the guidance of both your pediatrician and Dr. Felty as your natural medicine consultant, your child can experience the best healing options.
