Children’s integrative health is a holistic approach to wellness that examines the context—the ecology—in which optimal health and wellness can be achieved. Increasingly, parents, nurses, pediatricians and others in the other healthcare sector are trying to navigate the field of environmental health to determine what conditions might best promote healthy child development.

CHE and three leaders in the pediatric integrative health field discussed the latest in “ecological” medicine and emerging science regarding specific approaches to creating optimal environments for children to develop.
