Naturopathic Medicine: A Helping Hand in Child Mental Health

Is it time for medication? Many parents face a crossroads in their child’s mental health care - when psychotherapy and behavioral guidance have helped, but not enough. When medication is suggested, many parents are leery about strong drugs in their young children's bodies. They may have heard of Naturopathic medicine but not understand what it is, how it works, and what evidence exists. In this episode, I am joined by Dr. Jamie Oskin, a naturopathic physician who practices homeopathy. In this episode, Dr. Oskin and I define naturopathic and homeopathic approaches. We discuss child mental health problems that improve with naturopathic care, the evidence base, and natural recommendations a parent try at home without having to consult a physician.
