The Bastyr Center for Natural Health, at 3670 Stone Way N, will conduct Well-Child Visits, on children ages 11 and younger, through the end of August for a flat rate of $20!  These exams involve a physical check-up, to catch any problems early, and allow the kids, and parents, a chance to learn about healthy choices on proper nutrition, exercise, and stress reduction that can be made as the child grows.

Well-child visits at Bastyr Center last longer (45 minutes to an hour) than many pediatrician visits, and cover much of the same matters – growth parameters, safety issues, vision and hearing assessment.  With more time for an in–depth discussion, a Bastyr Naturopathic Physician can also devote time to preventive strategies to keep the child healthy through natural means, taking into account mental and emotional factors, and ultimately creating a more holistic approach.

Well-child exams are best conducted when your child is not ill.  Getting a baseline check-up when a child is healthy better allows for diagnosis when they come in ill at a later date.  Well-child visits are held at the Bastyr Center for Natural Health, on Stone Way, and will be available through the end of August.  For $20 per child, ages 11 and younger, each child will also receive a free bottle of pediatric vitamins at the end of the visit.

Bastyr also offers senior visits for a flat rate fee of $15, so consider a visit whatever your age!  For more info on Bastyr Center for Natural Health clinic go to their website, or call 206-834-4100 to schedule an appointment.
