Kids & Teen Health

Vitascript specialises in the changing health and developmental needs of our kids and teens. 

 

Additional stressors never seen before on a personal and family level have contributed to a growing rise of health conditions in our most vulnerable, mainly in the areas of mental, immune and gut health. Prolonged stressors combined with unmanaged nutrient deficiencies has been proven by science to have damaging effects on learning, behaviour and health not just in childhood but throughout the lifespan.


A key aspect of our treatment approach is to find and address the underlying cause of your child's kids & teens health condition.


Vitascript's practitioners specialise in gut-brain health & stress and anxiety management in kids & teens; and will leave no stone unturned when it comes to your kids & teens health condition. Whether your child has a cold or flu, or a long standing health condition, we support both acute and chronic conditions.

 

Our practitioners are trained to treat all ages from neonates (under one month) to infants (one month-1 year olds), toddlers, children, tweens and teens into early adulthood.

Children's brains are highly receptive to the experience of nurturing, protection and acknowledgment. If your child is experiencing unmanaged stress and health conditions this can be an adverse experience that can affect their brain patterning into their adult life.

The brain is highly plastic in forming key brain circuits in childhood compared to adulthood, therefore it is much easier to address health issues now, while the brain is receptive and still in development.  If we can treat our kids & teens before the age of 25, their chances of having a healthy adult life are maximised.
