Are You Searching for Safe, Natural, and Effective Solutions for Your Child’s Illness
Did you know that 1 in 3 children in the United States suffer from asthma, allergies, ADHD or autism? (1) It’s shocking but true! Increasingly children are suffering from contemporary chronic childhood illnesses – problems that were virtually non-existent 40 – 50 years ago.
If you’re looking for ways to help your child heal naturally with diet, herbs, and home remedies then you are in the right place! I started this blog to inspire, educate and enlighten parents with tools and tips to keep kids healthy naturally. It’s all about finding ways to support the body and make it stronger.
Here at Kids+Love+Acupuncture we offer a unique approach to children’s health issues.
Our main focus is on the core principles of wellness and how to safely restore health by integrating natural and conventional treatments. We want to promote a better understanding of the nutritional, spiritual, environmental, physical, mental and emotional aspects of well-being in children.
One way we do this with acupuncture and Chinese medicine is use the Five Element system which allows us to understand and bring out the best in children. If you’re curious which Element your child is, download our questionnaire to find out.
Pediatric Acupuncture is on the verge of becoming a mainstream treatment for childhood illnesses, especially for chronic conditions such as asthma, allergies, eczema, cough, digestive problems, behavioral and mood disorders and sleep problems (just to name a few).
Acupuncture can help stimulate the body to heal itself without drugs that may cause unwanted or harmful side effects. In the hands of a fully trained and licensed acupuncturist, it is one of the SAFEST ways to help your child heal.
See how easy it is for kids to get acupuncture “taps.”
Check out Kid’s Health in the menu above to find natural solutions and actionable tips to help your child heal naturally.

Summer is in full swing at our house and we’ve already had to deal with mosquito bites, bruises, and some pretty scraped up knees. As my boys have gotten older (ages 9 and 11.5 at the time of this writing), they’ve gotten more adventurous, which inevitably leads to getting a little beat up now and then….

With all the media coverage exploding over the flu epidemic that’s sweeping the nation, it got me asking “What can we do to “flu proof” our kids?” It’s impossible to keep our kids away from germs. Look away for two seconds and they’re putting their fingers in their mouth, sucking the handle of the shopping…
Every cold and flu season many children come down with a head cold that results in a cough. Coughing can be uncomfortable and downright irritating if it’s strong and persistent or keeping everyone up at night.
