Natural Remedies for Your Children


Children are precious

We know your children are precious and the centre of your world. So we’d like to share simple, natural remedies for your child’s needs to keep them healthy and happy!

Bug Bites

Mixing a few drops of water with baking soda makes a paste that can quickly relieve the itching for fast and natural relief (not to mention, inexpensive)!

Aches and Pains

Chiropractic care does wonders for children because they have spines too! Did you know adjusting a baby uses the same gentle pressure you would use to test the ripeness of a tomato? Just enough and barely noticeable, yet it allows your child to heal and live a happy life.

Mild Swelling

Cucumbers help reduce slight swelling and can be very soothing for irritations like sunburns and some insect bites. So, keep cooled pieces from the refrigerator on the swollen area.

Sore Throat

Honey and lemon juice is a delicious way to help soothe a sore throat and some say it works better than cough syrup. The lemon helps dry up congestion and honey creates a natural, soothing coat. For children over 1 year, combine a tablespoon of honey and lemon and serve it in small teaspoon size doses.

* Also ask us to show you how to do lymphatic drainage for sore throats, ear aches and sinus congestion. 


Chamomile tea can help calm intestinal muscles and relax your child. Steep it for around 4 minutes and serve once cooled, not giving your child more than 4 ounces (120ml) a day. Also, a chiropractic adjustment may help by restoring proper nervous system control also allowing muscles to relax and the body to heal itself.

Healthy Development

The birth process, growing pains, bumps; bruises and falls can really take a toll on your child’s health and development. So, with the gentlest care, we ensure your child’s nervous system is up and running, just like your child.

Healthy Diet

With so many allergens to food, sensitivities to gluten and dairy, grocery shopping isn’t what it used to be. Make sure to check the labels on your foods and pay attention to your child’s behaviour after eating dairy, gluten, nuts, etc. to see if they may have a sensitivity. Set your child up for success by avoiding a diet filled with processed foods packed with sugars, salts and preservatives.

We would love nothing more than to help your entire family grow healthy and strong. Remember we’re always here to answer questions and guide you in your family’s journey towards optimal health.
