I’m a big proponent of alternative and naturopathic health practices. Food allergies are ultimately what led me to alternative, healing practices and I’ve been so pleased with the results I’ve seen in my physical and mental well-being. I’ve been going to acupuncturists for 10 years and naturopathic doctors even longer, and I’m healthier than I’ve ever been. Next week, I have my first appointment with a dentist who has been practicing holistic, naturopathic-based dentistry since the 1980′s. Dare I say, I’m actually (sort-of) looking forward to the visit.
Luckily for those of us who prefer alternative medicine to traditional, Western medicine, we can easily find alternative practitioners of all varieties through out Puget Sound. That’s due, in large part, to the fact that we have the Northwest’s largest alternative health clinic and a world-renowned teaching clinic here – Bastyr Center for Natural Health. Perhaps you’ve never thought about natural health care practices for your little one, but Bastyr offers a wide range of services and information for treatment of very common concerns for your child’s health.
Not sure if it’s a good fit for your family? Well, you’re in luck as Bastyr is offering a low cost way to learn more about naturopathic, pediatric care with $20 Well-Child Visits between July 1st and August 31st. During the visit, a licensed, supervising practitioner and a team of advanced, student clinicians will assess your child’s physical health, growth and development, and nutrition and digestive needs. This is for children ages 11 and under and individual appointments are required. Get all the details here.
