Children’s Natural Health
Building a solid foundation in childhood leads to a fulfilling, healthy life. While naturopathic doctors cannot be your child’s primary care provider in the state of Wisconsin, Dr. Axtell and Dr. Aponte can provide a naturopathic approach to supplement conventional care from your pediatrician. Dr. Axtell and Dr. Aponte tailor your child’s diet to his or her needs. In addition the naturopathic doctors can recommend natural remedies for your child’s health concern.
Even if your child is well, Dr. Axtell and Dr. Aponte can make recommendations for wellness vitamins and supplements as well as lifestyle choices to promote overall optimal health. Children respond very well to the non-toxic, gentle natural health and wellness recommendations of the naturopathic doctors at Lakeside Natural Medicine.
Naturopathic wellness services are not a substitute for diagnosis and treatment from your medical treatment provider.
We feel so fortunate to have found Dr. Axtell. We originally sought treatment for my youngest child who has had food intolerances since birth. Despite having a wholesome diet and being an overall very healthy child, she was experiencing significant joint-pain that was progressively getting worse. Dr. Axtell provided supplements and we notice significant relief within days. Since then, we have been able to reintroduce most foods and only very rarely have issues with pain or GI discomfort. Because of the amazing results with my youngest, I began working with Dr. Axtell myself. She quickly identified significant hormonal, gut, and nutritional imbalances. Prior to working with Dr. Axtell, I was eating a healthy diet (low in sugar and refined grains, and high in protein and vegetables) and exercising regularly. However, I had chronic fatigue, difficulty focusing, sleeping, controlling blood sugar, excessive water retention, and it was very difficult for me to lose weight. Dr. Axtell did extensive blood, stool, and hormone testing to determine a treatment plan. Since implementing her plan, I feel better than I have my entire adult life and I’ve lost over 30 pounds without making significant changes to my diet or exercise routine. I honestly look back and can’t believe how I made it through the days feeling as awful as I did. If would absolutely recommend Dr. Axtell without reservations to anyone who is looking to feel better and identify health issues not commonly identified by general practitioners.—JB, 38 year old Female
Dr. Axtell has provided excellent support and recommendations for our baby. Her compassion, wisdom, knowledge and caring personality all blend beautifully to help guide her patients toward balanced and harmonious health. Dr. Axtell is thorough, articulate and always follow through with us. These characteristics are so valuable in a naturopathic doctor and very important to me as a patient. We, as a family, are so thankful for Dr. Axtell’s help and guidance with out baby’s health and wellness.—MR, mother of, 1 year old Male
Dr. Axtell, I have to thank you…. I must have been somewhat low progesterone for a while. I haven’t slept this good in a YEAR. Starting the second day I used the cream, I cannot believe how well I slept. How rested I feel. I’m so calm and tolerating life so much better, so much less stressed. I feel amazing. So thank you for what you do…. Based on my symptoms it all makes sense! I also really appreciate your integrity in partnering with my OB and my decisions. I’m glad I chose naturopathy!—SN, 28 year old Female
Dr. Axtell spent many hours outside of my appointments reviewing my case and coming up with the best wellness plan to help my body heal at the cellular level. She also sees my children and clearly understands the needs of the growing and developing child. She understands physiology and biochemistry and the difference in curative vs. palliative medicine. Now I know the difference in just feeling well and true wellness. I highly recommend Dr. Axtell for those serious about getting to the root cause of any health challenge.—CH, 40 year old Male
