Pediatric Services Q & A

by Cynthia Preston, ND

What are the benefits of naturopathic pediatric services?

Naturopathic pediatric services provide a child with the resources they need to become a healthy adult. Children in today’s world are continuously exposed to toxins. Many of these children also suffer from nutritional deficiencies and high-stress levels. Together, these issues can lead to the development of many chronic conditions, including:

  • Attention deficit disorders
  • Obesity
  • Learning disabilities
  • Eczema
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Behavioral problems

These issues can also make children more susceptible to illness and infection.

Naturopathic medicine addresses these problems directly, which can reduce the risk of developing chronic conditions and/or alleviate the symptoms of conditions that already exist.

How does Dr. Preston approach pediatric care?

At Beachside Naturopathic Clinic, pediatric care begins when a child is a newborn. During this time, parents often have many questions about their new babies. Dr. Preston takes the time to listen to each parent’s concerns and help them understand their child’s growth and development.

As the child ages, Dr. Preston will teach the parents to view their child’s health in a naturopathic way. Parents will learn about providing children with a healthy diet and lifestyle, allowing the child to experience “healthy” illnesses, and teaching the child to make good choices as they grow. When children experience problems, Dr. Preston will focus on low-force interventions, avoiding the use of drugs, chemicals, and surgery as much as possible.

Does Dr. Preston support breastfeeding?

Dr. Preston is happy to support parents through the nursing process. She can address any breastfeeding issues the mother may have, and she can also test for food allergies or intolerances that may be affecting the baby.

When should parents schedule appointments with Dr. Preston?

Beachside Naturopathic Clinic recommends the standard schedule of well-child visits for all children. During these exams, Dr. Preston will perform a full physical exam, assess the child’s growth, and evaluate the child’s development. Dr. Preston will also address any concerns of the parents during those visits.
