Kids need help now more than ever

Integrity Kids First Five is a program specifically for children age 5 and under, and it is designed to help achieve each child’s optimal health. The program does not charge for follow up office visits by Dr. Petro. It empowers parents/guardians to take an active role in helping their children regain lost health.

According to the American Medical Association, more than 25% of children now suffer with chronic health conditions, many which will continue into adulthood. Far fewer children suffer and die from conditions such as hepatitis, chickenpox, meningitis, pneumonia, diarrhea and life-threatening bacterial infections than 50 years ago. Babies are far less likely to die from sudden infant death syndrome. Infant mortality is down. Children are less likely to be hurt or die in accidents of every sort — car crashes, bike accidents, drowning, poisonings or fires. Women are more likely to breast feed; children are less likely to be exposed to leaded paint and gasoline than 20 years ago. The question then becomes,

“Why do so many children have chronic health conditions?”

I believe the answer lies in the interaction of genetics, lifestyle, and nutrition. The medical term Epigenetics explains this interaction. In the body, DNA is able to be expressed through altered triggering mechanisms resulting in changed outcomes. Many chronic conditions respond very well to a functional medicine approach. Our approach is to treat the underlying cause and help the child’s body return to a state of improved function, not just to change symptoms temporarily.

Integrity Wellness Kids First Five Requirements

  • Complete all of the information contained in the pediatric forms listed on the pediatric new patient page or on the bottom of this page. All information needs to be in the office at least 3 days prior to the appointment unless the child is coming in for immediate trauma at which time information would need to be submitted within 3 days following the office visit.
  • The parent/guardian is responsible for the initial consultation/examination fee at the time of service. All follow-up office visits are no charge.
  • Lab tests, orthopedic appliances and/or supplementation, if required, will be charged at normal Integrity Wellness rates, which often are significantly lower than through outside labs/hospitals.
  • Lab tests need to be completed within 2 weeks of date ordered.
  • If nutritional supplements are required for either the mother (breastfed infants) or the child, they will need to be purchased from Integrity Wellness or through one of the approved nutraceutical companies.
  • Dr. Petro uses lab testing from many diagnostic labs around the country when necessary.  Some tests are billed through Integrity Wellness and others are billed directly through the lab.  An detailed billing will be given to you to submit to your insurance company.
