Holistic approach to your Child’s health against winter weather

Dr. Khanum Saleha a Board Certified Integrative Medical Practitioner empowers parents to brave the frightening frontier of cold and flu season.

As warm weather approaches, many parents breathe a sigh of relief, knowing cold and flu season will soon be under their belts. Unfortunately, warmer weather does not always mean relief is fast coming. Some flu seasons can last as long as May, leaving parents in fear of germs for months on end. Dr. Khanum Saleha, a pediatrician, believes a holistic approach to health care is vital for keeping kids protected from the germs that threaten their health during the winter months.

Holistic Pediatricians follow a type of medical treatment that takes into consideration the entire being, including the body, mind, emotions, and spirit. Long before modern medicine, holistic measures were believed to be beneficial in bringing complete healing to the body. Integrative form of medical practice has been around for over 5,000 years but we are just now truly beginning to embrace it. Being able to treat a patient as a complete whole and not the sum of their parts leads to much more effective treatment and the prevention of disease.

According to Dr. Khanum Saleha, the body is a complete unit with each part working interdependently. When disease or illness occurs, it is because there is an imbalance in the body. With a Holistic Pediatrician Frisco TX, parents can rest assured their child’s health will be fully protected without the need for risky medications that only cover up the symptoms and do very little to combat the cause.

Dr. Khanum Saleha urges parents to take control of their child’s health and believes there is no better time than during cold and flu symptoms when the risks of infectious illness are much greater. “We are proud to offer natural treatments that help improve the body’s innate ability to heal itself. It takes a concerted effort that involves the child and their family. With this approach, we are able to help protect kids from the onslaught of colds and flu during the winter.”

If the entire being of the child is treated, their immune response becomes stronger so they are able to fight off the threat of disease. As society is slowly turning to alternative forms of medical care, Pediatricians need to begin embracing holistic approaches to help ensure their patients will receive the full care they need without simply tossing medications at the symptoms and expecting them to stop the progression. With a holistic approach, parents are encouraged and empowered to be more involved in the care of their child.
