Stress Is Making Our Kids Sick

Introducing GetzWell Pediatrics newest stress management service, StressWell. We all experience stress. For some of us, those everyday stressors add up to a point where they impact our health and well-being. That’s where StressWell comes in.

Our children and teens are seeing an epidemic of mental, emotional, and physical complaints. Stressors like anxiety, allergies, learning difficulties, and other chronic illnesses in children are all at all-time highs. At StressWell, we want to get at the root causes of stress in children, to develop a comprehensive treatment plan for long-lasting vitality and wellness. Using integrative and precision medicine approaches, GetzWell’s pediatricians partner with you and your child to treat and manage stress with stress-related tools and interventions designed to fit your personal needs. This could include a broad range of supports such as breathing exercises, mindfulness practices, art projects, parent and/or teen coaching, ear acupuncture, guided imagery, neurofeedback therapy, and more.

Did you know...

That stress doesn’t just reside in your mind? It physically alters our brains and bodies.

Traditional Western medicine is often unable to address the conditions of stress in children satisfactorily, and many families feel as though they are playing “whack-a-mole” with every new symptom. Traditional allopathic or Western medicine is about symptom suppression instead of asking WHY and getting to the root cause. If you think your child or teen may be helped by our StressWell approach – or if you are unsure and curious – contact the GetzWell Pediatrics office in San Francisco! We want to be part of the solution of successfully treating stress in your kid.

Parenting is hard, especially when your child is going through challenging times. How do you separate what is about you and what is about them?

“After trying every single modality and exhausting our options with Kaiser, we were at our wits end trying to help our child. As a desperate parent, I was willing to do anything for my 10-year-old daughter who was severely struggling with depression and anxiety. The StressWell Team was the miracle that surpassed my biggest hopes. They spent an incredible amount of time to comprehensively learn about every aspect of my daughter and our family and seek to understand not just a single cause but the systems at play that were contributing to her anxiety and depression. For the first time, my daughter was regarded and treated holistically and for that reason, she is now healthy, thriving, and is as happy as can be. We owe everything to Dr. Getzelman, Dr. Gilgoff and the StressWell team. We can’t sing their praises enough!”
