Naturopathic Medicine
for Kids

Whether your child is suffering with GI upset, ADD/ADHD, behavioral challenges, eczema, allergies, or recurrent illness, naturopathic medicine is the solution.

"Quality care isn't just for adults. Children deserve to have their health taken seriously and to be treated with respect and compassion. Together, we can build a strong foundation for lifelong health."
Dr. Janice Joerges

Does this sound familiar?

You’ve spoken to your child's pediatrician about their chronic issues, but you haven't gotten any proactive, tangible recommendations, only reactive care.

You’ve googled endlessly to try to find answers, but the rabbit hole is very confusing and overwhelming...

You’re feeling totally worn down with constantly dealing with your child's recurrent illness or behaviors and you’re fed up and don’t have any more time to figure this out on your own...

You don’t have to do this alone!  I am ready and able to help your child Thrive!

We provide immediate, actionable steps you can take to help your child be their best, vibrant, healthy self. All individualized recommendations, but in a specific therapeutic order.



Children communicate through behaviors. Whether your child is fidgeting, having difficulty sleeping, becoming aggressive, or just seems to be having a harder time controlling themselves than others these symptoms are communicating a need for help. I'm here to give them that help.



If your child's immune system is overburdened or under-performing they will not be able to remain healthy. Tired of the earaches, sore throats, coughing, runny noses, and belly aches never seeming to really go away? So is your child! It's time to stop the sickies and support the body’s healing process. 



Did you know the skin is a window to the GI tract? Rashes, eczema, hives, and sensitive skin can often be traced back to dysfunction within the digestive system. Sometimes these symptoms will occur in conjuction with bowel changes like constipation, excess gas, or loose stools. Let's work together to find the root cause. 

If any of this sounds like your child, we are here to help!

I came to Dr. Simon with gastrointestinal issues that had gone undiagnosed by traditional doctors and specialists for years. By the time I entered her office. I was physically and mentally depleted. After our first 90-minute consultation, I knew I was already on the track to healing my body naturally. Through a few rounds of different supplements to restore my gut health. I'm now back to normal, back to a healthy weight, and know what foods to avoid. She breaks everything down to the science, but in a way that's easy to digest (ha!), which I loved so much. If your struggling with GI/diet-related issues, I cannot recommend Dr. Simon enought!
