Due to the fact that many mainstream medical doctors have turned into legal drug pushers, who carry out the bidding of American drug companies, conscientious parents have begun to turn to more natural forms of medicine. By treating the cause, such as childhood obesity or a weak immune system, instead of providing pills to mask the symptoms, children can become healthier, and stay healthy, by creating a new lifestyle of well-being.
In downtown St. Petersburg, located at 222 2nd Street North, is the Acupuncture & Herbal Therapy Clinic that caters to the young as well as the old. They have a special program called Shonishin Pediatric for children. It is held once a month on Saturdays by Sara Siley, AP. DOM, who uses this special treatment that was developed in Japan more than 250 years ago to bring wellness by stimulating meridian points, along with the application of herbal therapy.
Shonishin is used to help boost the immune system of those children who seem to be constantly sick. It helps regulate the child’s weight to bring strength and balance back to the body. It is also highly successful in treating:
