Too often parents must choose between conventional or alternative treatments for their children. Most Pediatricians have no training in herbs, acupuncture, or hypnosis, and most alternative practitioners lack training in Western Pediatric medicine.

East Bay Integrative Pediatrics is bridging this divide. We practice Integrative Medicine, which integrates the best of conventional medicine with the best of alternative medicine. We provide or refer alternative medicines that are scientifically-based and safe for children.

Because we treat both ways, we will discuss alternative therapies welcomingly, and you can be assured that any herbs and supplements your child may be taking can be reviewed for avoiding sometimes dangerous interactions with medications. Also, by including an Integrative Medical Doctor in your child’s health care, we can recognize any red flags of conditions that really are best treated conventionally with a firm understanding of the concerns you may have.
