Teen Health within Naturopathic Care:
Teen wellness is an often neglected area of health care, when they don’t easily fit into a children’s health program or an adult one. Naturopathic medicine can provide support for teens in optimizing their health during these transition years, and also as a great opportunity to learn about their bodies and maintaining their health in the future.
Common health issues that apply during these years include:
- Acne concerns
- Other skin conditions – psoriasis, eczema, others
- Hormone imbalance (late, irregular or difficult menstruation)
- Menstrual cramps
- Weight issues
- Digestion support – irritable bowel syndrome often starts at this age
- Depression, anxiety and sleep disturbances
If you are interested in further support for your health as a teen or as the parent of one, please contact the office for more details. A Naturopathic approach is educational, proactive and health-promoting for the long term.
