Health and Kids

Ok, so it has been forever since I have written on here. But I was inspired today by a friend of mine from college. 🙂

One thing I wanted to tell you all about that is new in our lives regarding health is that we changed pediatricians. The one we went to before was great, had terrific bedside manner, but was so negative towards health and alternative medicine. It began to be such a conflict for us each time we went because their office was so sarcastic about it all. With the new baby coming, and having learned so much more about health and alternative medicine since my last 2 kids were born, I decided I wanted more for this third child. And I certainly did not want to be ridiculed on all those visits you have with an infant.

Well, a couple of weeks ago, Nick was really sick. I knew our former pediatrician’s office would either say there was nothing we could do, or offer an antibiotic. But I needed more for Nick. I didn’t want to just keep giving him motrin or cough medicine (which wasn’t helping anyway). So, we went to the new Dr. She was great! Spent over an hour with us getting to know us and our desire for health, talking through his symptoms and options for health. She did suspect that it was turning into a sinus infection, wrote us a script for antibiotics. But here is the difference, she told us to wait to fill it until after we tried some homeopathic and herbal treatments first. She was pretty sure that the body could heal itself, and gave us the OPTION on the antibiotic.

He did get better, we didn’t have to use the antibiotic, and we definitely decided to switch pediatricians! So, if you are able to find a pediatrician in your area that is an MD but also practices alternative/homeopathic medicine, then I highly recommend the switch.
