It’s not just about treating the symptoms anymore, which is practiced traditionally and widely. We’ve come to think of a child’s illness as a cluster of problems to be solved. In many cases, you have to take a 360-degree look at a patient to get to the root cause of an issue. That’s what a holistic approach really is.
Sometimes a kid’s health comes down to a simple formula: such as, if a child has fever, the only solution thought of is symptomatic treatment with paracetamol. But when matters are more complicated, for instance, when there’s a chronic condition, like asthma, or a stress-related ailment, like migraines, then symptomatic management may not be enough.
According to the holistic approach to paediatrics, the best way to get a kid healthy, and keep him that way, is to consider every aspect of his lifestyle—his diet, his environment, his way of handling stress.
Our approach to every child includes an overview of the entire condition and a holistic guidance to solve the issues.
