We practice natural/alternative ways of healing, rather than conventional methods. Why? Because the offer benefits without harmful effects. There are options out there, you are your families first healer.
First things first: Eat healthy, drink lots of water, plenty of rest (yes hard w/ young children) get fresh air daily, beautiful sunshine daily, cleanliness, think good thoughts, rid your body of stress in your life, be happy!
I've utilized mostly homeopathic remedies because I've had great results, but there are many different types of natural medicines out there and I've tried others also which produce results.
*Most symptoms that you  actually experience are our own bodies defenses to heal itself.

We also utilize chiropractic care. Having your spine aligned regularly promotes health.In the event our spines are not alighned properly this will cause nerve interference which promotes sickness and disease. This weakens our immune system. When our spine is misaligned, the flow of messages to our brain are distorted. This undermines one's health. Chiropractic care can be utilized for a wide array of aliments. Including but not limited to: the obvious back, etc problems, ear infections, learning disorders, fever, headaches, bed wetting, colds, coughs, etc. The importance of a properly functioning nerve system eliminates the need for chemical drugs, antibiotics, this promotes better health.
