Acute Illness

Acute illnesses:

  • Common cold
  • Influenza
  • Ear infections
  • Strep throat
  • Childhood viruses (chicken pox, hand food & mouth, fifth disease, roseola etc.)
  • Acute diarrhea
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Fevers


Managing these common acute illnesses of childhood properly is part of building a strong and balanced immune response for your child’s future health. A naturopathic approach will minimize the detrimental impact that antibiotics can have on the gut and will optimize the immune pathways that will serve your child throughout his/her life.

For proper intervention in an acute illness, a physician must be able to properly diagnose the condition, determine and manage risks, and understand how to properly support the body’s innate response in order to optimize the outcome.

Dr. Krisko has been working with children since the start of her career and has seen each of these illnesses firsthand countless times. She will use lifestyle therapies, diet, hydrotherapy treatments and herbal and homeopathic remedies to guide you and your child through the common acute illnesses you may face.
