In his famous quote, German Physicist Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Sadly, many are content to maintain the status quo yet are confused and disappointed when nothing changes. This pattern is endemic in the field of medicine, and pediatrics is no exception.
We find ourselves in rapidly changing times wherein our children are being diagnosed with chronic illnesses at staggering rates: pediatric asthma, allergies, eczema, leukemia and other debilitating diagnoses are commonplace today. Unfortunately, the information for preventing these illnesses and the tools for treating their underlying causes are not part of traditional medical training. Therefore, most pediatricians are only able to focus on and treat symptoms typically with hastily written prescriptions for, in some cases, dangerous pharmaceuticals. In San Francisco, the holistic pediatricians at GetzWell Pediatrics have an expanded toolbox with which they practice medicine, and they categorically reject the pharma-driven approach because it isn’t the best way to care for kids, or anyone.
