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, they can provide a naturopathic approach to supplement conventional care from your pediatrician. Naturopathic doctors will 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, naturopathic doctors 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're so thankful to have found Dr. Aponte and Lakeside Natural Medicine! Our daughter has a complicated GI condition and Dr. Aponte has helped us make real progress in healing. She took the time to listen to our unique situation and gave us a personalized plan, along with periodic check-ins to see if what we're trying is working.—RB,4 year oldF
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 oldFemale
