How the Pediatric Integrative Medicine (PIM) approach works

What is Pediatric Integrative Medicine?

In line with integrative approaches generally, Pediatric Integrative Medicine (PIM) is focused on prevention of illness. Children are viewed holistically, and all areas of their lives including nutrition, exercise, relationships, the physical environment, sleep patterns, and the mind-body connection are seen to play a significant role. Practitioners make use of both traditional and complementary therapies to create a personalized program for each patient.

An Integrated Approach to Autism

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a group of developmental disorders affecting the nervous system. It is believed to affect about 1% of the world’s population, with a higher incidence in males. It is generally thought that an autism diagnosis can reliably be made from the age of two, but many children are not diagnosed until after they turn four. However, research has shown that parents notice a developmental problem before the ASD child’s first birthday, for example concerns about hearing and vision.

People with ASD often have symptoms that hamper their ability to function socially and in other areas of life; limited interests or activities; and repetitive behaviors. Some are mildly impaired by their symptoms, while others are significantly impacted. The symptoms are viewed as permanent, but studies show that interventions can help children to overcome communication, social and developmental challenges.

The integrative medical approach to ASD is to identify and address the underlying multi-factorial causes. A detailed history and physical will be undertaken, including prenatal, birth history, immunizations and developmental milestones. Individualized laboratory tests, for example for food and environmental allergies, may also be recommended, as well as tests for gastrointestinal problems. The personalized treatment program could include, for example, nutritional advice (food can have a significant impact on symptoms); and support services (such as speech and occupational therapy).

An Integrated Approach to ADHD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is the most commonly diagnosed mental disorder in children. Symptoms can be related to inattention (eg, easily distracted); hyperactivity (eg, talking incessantly); and impulsiveness (eg, blurting out answers).

Pediatric integrated medicine uses both conventional and complementary therapies to improve outcomes in children diagnosed with ADHD. A personalised programme is formulated that includes considering all aspects of the child’s lifestyle, such as diet, nutrients, gut health, and environmental influences. For example, a treatment plan could include restricted elimination diets, supplements such as omega-3 fatty acid, vitamin B6 and zinc, as well as neurofeedback (a non-invasive EEG-based form of biofeedback that affects brain-wave patterns).
