Are you looking for a Pediatric Functional Medicine practitioner in Ottawa?

Is your toddler, child or teen struggling with a chronic longstanding health condition?

Have you tried many therapies, including Conventional and Naturopathic Medicine, without long-term success?

If so, my Pediatric Functional Medicine approach may be the solution you are looking for for your toddler, child or teen.

Let's first look at how my Pediatric Functional Medicine approach.

What Is My Pediatric Functional Medicine Approach?

My Pediatric Functional Medicine approach is a holistic therapy that aims to identify and treat the root cause of musculoskeletal problems in toddlers, children or teens.

Let's look at now what conditions or symptoms I can help with.

What conditions and symptoms can I help with?

My Pediatric Functional Medicine approach is excellent for helping persistent or long-lasting conditions and symptoms such as:

  1. Behavioural Issues - ADHD, ADD and Autism.
  2. Digestive Issues - Abdominal pain, Constipation, Heartburn.
  3. Growing pains
  4. Menstrual issues
  5. Mood Issues -  Anxiety and Depression
  6. Skin issues -  Acne, Eczema and Hives

Let's now look at how my Functional Medicine approach works.

How Does My Pediatric Functional Medicine Approach Work?

I have a holistic approach to helping resolve health issues in toddlers, children or teens.

I look at seven main factors when looking to resolve the health issues of your toddlers, children or teens:

  1. Structural problems, including joint and spinal misalignment.
  2. Nutritional Deficiencies.
  3. Current chronic stressors include work and home life.
  4. Past emotional traumas.
  5. Past physical traumas.
  6. Gut health

My Functional Medicine approach is a partnership in healing and is equally about me guiding you toward recovery and treatment.

Let's look now at what occurs in an initial appointment.

What occurs during an initial appointment?

The purpose of the initial appointment is primarily to collect information.

This process will include a complete medical history and a physical exam, including Applied Kinesiology or muscle response testing.

After the collection process, Dominick will tell you:

  • If my Pediatric Functional Medicine approach is suitable and safe for treating your problem.

If I can help you, I will then tell you:

  • What is the nature of your symptoms?
  • What are the possible causes?
  • What further testing is necessary?

Treatment will probably be limited to general diet and lifestyle advice at this stage.

Finally, let's look at how long appointments are.

How long are the appointments?

Initial appointments are 60 minutes, and follow-up appointments are 30-45 minutes long.
