We are very experienced in children's health relating to food intolerance, sensitivities and hypersensitivity. We approach infants and toddlers slightly differently to children over 2-3 years of age. We understand that children are different to adults and present with different problems that may not always be so common in mature age clients.
Years of experience in this field has led us to confidently deal with children as young as 4-6 months. We always take control of the consultation in such a fashion that the child feels comfortable and safe. However some kids always seem to test mum, especially at sleep times, in these cases we normally conduct the test in as quick a fashion as we can, never however at the expense of accuracy.
Although the assessment does not hurt, some kids do not like to be kept still for too long or just have a fear of offices. We might in this case put on a cartoon show for the kids and in 95% of cases this will again settle them down. In the odd case that we have a constant crier, with the parents permission we will just continue through. Parents may ask "does the crying affect my concentration ?", the answer is no. I understand the importance of your time and the importance of getting the test done and that's what we do, staying focused until the test is finished.
I speak to other practitioners about this and they generally conclude that they often won't take on toddlers as clients due to the stress of crying children. We work with many types of children's problems. A list of the symptoms that we often treat, which respond successfully to treatment include
Trusting your children to a practitioner is something that we take especially seriously, which is why we try so hard to spend the time with you that you need to understand your child's condition. However common sense should and must prevail above all.
Always make sure that you are under the supervision of a Pediatric Specialist with any condition that you regard as serious relating to your child's health. Being a parent with two children, understanding your own childrens health problems with focus and compassion is something that we pride ourselves in. Having faith in my own protocols is something that was tested when my own daughter was diagnosed with cancer at 6 years of age. 26 months of chemotherapy, following our recovery and dietary protocols IN CONJUNCTION with prescribed medical protocols and medications, she did not develop one infection and her bounce back rate was above and beyond every other child with a similar case at that time at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne.
It's that belief in diet and natural therapies that we have that can help so many other parents on their journey to improved health for their children.
Teenage health is something that requires somewhat of a tactful approach. Hormones, puberty, peer pressure, cool factor, changes to routine, avoiding bad foods are all areas of consideration when dealing with that age group.
However assuming that the teenager recognises that they have a problem we can initiate a correct and full recovery program. Areas of consideration for teenage health include.
Bringing your teenager for a test and consultation, should be done with the approval of your teenager, as it is hard to push water uphill if they don't want to get better, irrespective of the parents views for recovery. However with the correct information and changes results can be life changing.
If you feel this may be of value to your child then fill out the submission form below to contact us and we will be in touch.

But more importantly than just identifying potential triggering events we are experts in helping de-mystify the jigsaw puzzle that helped create these conditions in the first place with detailed personal and family history analysis.
