Pediatric Disorders

The goal of our alternative pediatric programs is to nurture and sustain each child’s ability to learn, freely and happily engage with family members and same age peers, recognize and develop individual talents and skills, and be free of chronic immune inflammation, dysfunctions, mood disorders, or irritants. Our pediatric programs are designed around leading alternative and functional medicine therapies proven in both research and through clinical practice to produce positive results. Through standard and alternative lab evaluations, brain mapping, and discovery of root causes we support healing using safe and nontoxic treatments. Pediatric conditions treated by alternative medicine include: eczema,  ear infections(acute or Chronic), food intolerances and allergies, allergic rhinitis, constipation, ADHD, Autism spectrum, PANDAS, PANS, RAD, and ODD. Discovering the root causes of disease is helped significantly through good laboratory evaluation. Specific tests indicated by the presenting symptoms take much of the guess work out of medicine, allowing for greater success with treatment protocols.

At East Valley Naturopathic Doctors we are able to treat children of all ages. Generally ages 0-3 we begin to see the symptoms of eczema, ear aches, and allergies. Ages 3-5 we begin to recognize the beginnings of behavioral and learning abilities, both of which are greatly magnified as children begin to engage with others in the community and at school. Ages 5-18 are the school years where good diets (free of attention draining allergens), good nutrients, candida free intestines, good study habits, sleep, and regular outdoor activity support positive growth in children. We are here to support positive and bright futures for your children by applying leading alternative therapies through these fast and chaotic years of physical, emotional and cognitive growth. For children with significant behavioral and learning deficits, we encourage Neurofeedback Therapy. An evaluation for benefit for Neurofeedback Therapy begins with brain mapping before meeting with the physician, which helps confirm the diagnosis and other behavioral, mood, or learning disorders.

Neurofeedback Therapy Benefits in Children

Neurofeedback has now been used clincially for nearly 40 years. It stands as one of the only means of treating the brain and its dysfunction (less than optimal functioning) without the use of prescription medications. We describe below many of the studied benefits and provide research articles for further research and reference.
