With two young children of her own, Dr. Flanagan has front-line experience with childhood illness and health, sleep issues, behavioral questions, the need for parenting support, and preventative medicine, among much more. Children respond beautifully to natural treatments with plant medicine and homeopathy. Dr. Flanagan can also prescribe antibiotics and other prescription medicines when indicated. Through Naturopathic Medicine, many "chronic" illnesses such as asthma, skin rashes, and ear infections can be treated and the body can be supported to stop repeating those patterns of illness.
Many acute illnesses are effectively treated with Naturopathic medicine. Colds, flu, ear infections, tummy bugs and so on can be treated quickly and effectively by supporting the body's own healing mechanisms. Children are vital and their bodies are wise. With a little support, they can heal quickly and well from acute illness and come out the other side with a stronger immune system, more prepared than ever to face the world in front of them.
