The practitioners at Flourish Medical + Wellness see adults and children of all ages. Some of the common concerns we see children and adolescents for include ADD/ADHD, mental health concerns, anxiety, depression, gastrointestinal concerns, and menstrual dysfunction. These young bodies are incredibly resilient and generally able to heal quickly with the right lifestyle modifications and treatment plans.
Oftentimes in the traditional medical model, children are simply treated for a diagnosis without further digging for the cause behind the diagnosis. Getting to the root cause of the diagnosis can require in-depth assessment and testing. At Flourish we use blood and urine testing as well as applied kinesiology, when indicated.
Natural Treatments for Kids
We offer more natural treatment solutions for treating common ailments such as ear infections, strep throat, flu, constipation, etc. Antibiotics are one of the most overused medical treatments for our kids. Recurrent or prolonged antibiotic use can lead to disruptions in the intestinal flora, which can then have long term effects on the immune system and neurotransmitters. In some circumstances antibiotics are necessary, however, there are many situations in which natural treatment options exist and are effective.
Daily Supplementation Recommendation for Kids
My son had been complaining of a stomach ache at least daily for 2 months. I brought him into our regular clinic and they diagnosed him with constipation and told us to give him Miralax for 30 days. I questioned this because that seemed like a long time to take Miralax. They told me he had to do it to resize/reshape everything. So we did the Miralax for 30 days and when he completed that he was still complaining of stomach aches. I had heard about other kids going to Flourish and being treated for parasites and no longer complaining of stomach aches. So off to Flourish we went. Jackie found that my son did have a parasite and we started treatment for this which was just supplements twice daily. After about 2 weeks of treatment I could already notice a difference. And now, about a month or so out, my son has rarely complained about a stomach ache. Thank you Jackie!" - Laura L.
