WORKING WITH CHILDREN & TEENAGER

While autoimmune diseases are commonly associated with adults, it is crucial to recognise the increasing prevalence of autoimmunity in children. Many children exhibit signs of a compromised immune system, such as childhood eczema, asthma, food sensitivities, and frequent illnesses. When these dysfunctions progress to autoimmunity, it becomes challenging for both the child and the parent to navigate daily life.

The most common childhood autoimmune disorders include: 

  • Coeliac Disease

  • Juvenile Athritis

  • Type 1 Diabetes

  • Lupus

  • Hashimoto's Thyroiditis

  • Crohn's Disease​

Recognising early signs of autoimmune disease in children is crucial, and parents should seek help as soon as possible. Children often exhibit remarkable resilience, and addressing these imbalances early on can lead to better long-term outcomes.

At our clinic, our practitioners Muriel and Nicola have firsthand experience raising a child with an autoimmune disease. They understand the range of emotions that parents go through while caring for a child with chronic health problems.

In addition, we frequently encounter children and young adults at our clinic who experience ongoing symptoms without a definitive diagnosis. These individuals have already gone through the conventional healthcare system, and their parents are now seeking a fresh perspective and alternative approach to finding the answers they need.

These symptoms may include: 

  • Frequent illness and weakened immune system

  • Ongoing digestive symptoms

  • Eczema

  • Asthma

  • Slow growth

  • Developmental delay

As parents, we possess a deep intuition when it comes to our children's well-being. It is crucial to trust your instincts, explore alternative options, and act as your child's advocate. Listening to your intuition can lead you to seek different approaches and find the best possible solutions for your child's health.
