  • Gastro-intestinal issues and skin issues are common reasons why parent’s will choose the alternative route of Naturopathy for their children

  • Chiropractors are great for helping babies and toddlers with things like birth traumas, reflux, colic, constipation, or spinal adjustments for falls

  • Dr. Lazzell’s 3 tips for any parents, regardless of the doctor route they want to take with their kids:

    • Introduce foods that are great for the gut at an early age - things like sauerkraut, yogurt, miso soup, and bone broth are all great as they are nutrient dense in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids

    • Set a good example - kids are like sponges, and whatever you are eating will rub off on them!

    • Get your child’s vitamin D levels tested - it is very common for all people, not just kids, to have low levels and need a supplement
