Pediatric Restorative Medicine

Published by Dr. Meghan Haggarty

How Can Pediatric Restorative Medicine help your child?

Pediatric Restorative Medicine focuses on evaluating specific pathways in the body to identify systems that need support. The idea of restorative medicine is that once imbalances are identified; targeted treatments are utilized to help to restore the body back to a state of health.

Comprehensive naturopathic diagnostic testing for Pediatrics at the Nardella Clinic of Calgary may include:

  • Vitamin/mineral levels
  • Complete thyroid testing
  • Heavy metals
  • Comprehensive stool Testing
  • Organic Acids
  • Food allergies and sensitivities
  • Neurotransmitters
  • Immunoglobulin evaluation
  • Genetic testing
  • Comprehensive chronic infection and viral testing

Interpretation of the testing by an experienced naturopathic doctor identifies potential causes of health issues. An individualized treatment plan is then developed to restore balance. As biochemical markers begin to normalize, improvements in health and a decrease in symptoms are seen.  Treatments that have been shown to help children include:

  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Diet Optimiztion
    • Gluten Free/Casein Free
    • GAPS
    • Fiengold
    • Allergen-free
    • Low-phenol diet
    • Low oxalate diet
    • Candida diet
    • Ketogenic diet
  • Microbiome optimization
  • Antifungals
  • Methyl B12 injections
  • Methylation and detoxification support
  • Glutathione
  • Chelation Therapy
  • Amino acids
  • Targeted, therapeutic vitamins and minerals
