Hippocrates famously penned the guiding light and oath for all in medicine – the Hippocratic Oath. He also wrote “All Disease Begins in the Gut.”
The most comprehensive way to restore health, and the most foundational, is to restore the body’s microbiome (aka gut health). A healthy gut is foundational for your child to be the best version of themselves; energetic, robust, joyful, clear skinned, and happy.
So much of illness stems from the gut, and even without digestive symptoms, the health of the gut determines the health of the child. There is no better, more effective, sustainable, and safe way to do this then through nutrition. This is why, as a pediatrician, I also became a GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) Diet Practitioner.
This GAPS™ oriented gut healing program focuses on your child, although the plan will include diet and lifestyle changes that can benefit the whole family. Based on labs, individual priorities, symptoms, & food sensitivities, we’ll craft a plan that is unique to his/her needs.
Initial health history intake session in person at Blossom Pediatrics NYC or via our secure online portal. This takes at least 1 hour, but in many cases much longer – in which I take the time to complete an extensive and detailed review of your child’s health history, history of your child’s symptoms, and what you perceive to have lead up to the problem, your background, the health of your family and more. This helps them to build a picture of your general health and help aid in understanding what led to current symptoms. You will walk away with step by step solutions and understanding of how to implement the program in your life. I will provide the resources and written materials to help you. And as you begin the journey, I will work side-by-side with you to help you reach the most healing in the gentlest way possible.
This is foundational to start the Blossoming Child Program.
