A philosophical and practical approach to pediatric care that focuses on the principles of health and wellness. Dedicated to integrative treatment using natural methods to stimulate healing, treat illness, and recover balance.
Holistic pediatrics is really a way of caring for children, rather than merely treating them. Whenever possible a holistic approach will avoid treatments that have potential side effects or dangers, favoring gentle methods that stimulate healing and correct imbalances. A holistic view seeks the cause of symptoms and also focuses on prevention of recurrences and complete cure. By contrast, conventional medicine tends to focus on temporary relief of a symptom for a limited amount of time.
Jason Henson, MAOM, practices holistic health care for children. This includes treatment of acute and chronic illness using Chinese herbs, non-needle acupuncture, and nutritional supplements. Well-child care focuses on nutrition, parenting skills, and the emotional well-being of your children.
