Pediatric Care

Parents and providers in today’s society are responsible for guiding the very complex and sensitive process of neurological, emotional, social, immunological, and physical development of their children. Every aspect of childhood and development builds the intricate meshwork of future health and potential illnesses.

It is immensely important to preserve proper bodily functions from a very young age, utilizing and exercising all life-given faculties. For the cliché goes, if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it. In our medical paradigm of thinking and practice, the saying would more likely be, “if you suppress it, you’ll lose it.”
