We interviewed Madiha Saeed MD ABIHM about tips and strategies for getting kids off medications.
Getting Kids off Medications
At least 20% of children these days are on medication for chronic health conditions. For kids with conditions such as allergies, asthma, ADHD, autoimmune disorders, mood disorders and other chronic health conditions, it’s common to be on multiple medications.
What most parents may not understand is that these medications may simply be band-aids to reduce symptoms that don’t address the root causes of these conditions.
In this webinar, Madiha Saeed MD tells us how we can be getting kids of medications for these chronic conditions. Some of these tips include:
- Changing the diet
- Healing the gut
- Testing for food sensitivities and intolerances
- Correcting gut dysbiosis
- Lowering inflammation
- Optimizing blood sugar
- Correcting nutritional deficiencies
- Supporting the immune system
