A message from Dr. Murray C. Clarke, D.Hom., L.Ac.
In my practice as a pediatric homeopath, my efforts are dedicated to understanding what promotes health. This includes what causes, as well as what prevents and cures the diverse conditions
affecting our children. Careful nurturing through the formative years creates the basis for good health throughout life. On the physical level, this means a healthful diet and nutritional supplements.
from around the world show that modern farming methods have
resulted in depleted soil conditions. Hence, the foods grown
on that soil no longer contain the full spectrum of essential
nutrients needed for healthy development, strong immune
function, and emotional and mental vitality. A child who does
not receive enough of all the essential nutrients will be much
more prone to a wide variety of illnesses. I developed the
ChildLife line of nutritional supplements to increase
awareness about these deficiencies and their consequences, and
to provide all the necessary ingredients in a great tasting
and readily available form.
The body and mind developed during childhood create the foundation
for the rest of your child's life. It is my hope that
ChildLife Essentials will play an ongoing role in developing
and maintaining many healthful and hopeful lives.
