Our daughter aged 7mths was suffering from constipation and in so much pain she would scream when she passed a bowel motion. This was very distressing and left us feeling helpless, she was still breastfed and eating plenty of fruit and vegetables but still having so much trouble going. Within weeks of treatment from Virginia things started to change and we now have a normal healthy child whose only indication of having passed a bowel motion is a telling odour! I would highly recommend Virginia to treat anyone’s child and trust in her knowledge and abilities as a herbalist. The treatment was simple and inexpensive but best of all natural. Virginia has also treated my 8yr old for a few minor ailments thus assisting us to avoid the medical route of treatment when it is unnecessary and so much better for a child to recover naturally from these common yet overly medicated ailments. Thank you so much for all your wisdom and compassion Virginia.

Natural Beginnings offers a complete children’s health service in Caringbah in the Sutherland Shire, ranging from treating young babies and toddlers to school aged children and adolescents. Each age group can be treated using diet, supplements, herbs or flower essences, or a combination of these, to improve many health or behavioural conditions.
Babies & Toddlers
Young babies can be affected by colic, nappy rash and eczema which can be improved with diet and natural therapies. Often addressing the diet of the mother can help with these conditions which can be caused by allergens entering the breast milk and affecting the baby.
Some supplements can still be given, even when they haven’t started solid foods yet. e.g. probiotics specific for the infant’s digestive system can help their digestion and improve their immunity and allergies, especially in babies born by caesarean section, as well as boost production of vitamin K in parents who choose not to give this to their child after birth.
Children & Adolescents
I have a particular interest in the Biomedical approach and have had DAN training (Defeat Autism Now!) to help children overcome:
– Autistic Spectrum Disorders such as Autism and ADHD (of which I can identify, as I suffered from ADHD and behavioural problems as a child)
– Asthma (another chronic disorder of my childhood which I have since overcome)
– Chronic illness
– Digestive problems
– Behavioural disorders
Research is showing that these children have an overlap in neurological, immunological and digestive illnesses, and that the best solution is to treat these issues concurrently. There is often a family history of brain-immuno-gut disorders such as allergies, digestive disorders, anxiety and depression.
The rise in these childhood diseases signals a need for preventative healthcare that focuses on cellular health by optimizing nutrient intake while minimizing toxins.
