Pediatric Integrative Medicine

Integrative Medical Center in Scottsdale

"Pediatric Integrative Medicine is the practice of medicine that reaffirms the importance of the relationship between practitioner and child and family, focuses on the whole child, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, healthcare professionals and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing."
(Adapted from the Consortium of Academic Health Centers for Integrative Medicine, May 2005)

Pediatric Integrative Medicine combines the best of natural and conventional healing in one location. At the Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine, a Scottsdale integrative medical center, we integrate Eastern and Western medicine traditions and improve the health of our children in a holistic way that treats each child and family unit as a unique and valued member.*

We implement the best of modern science and evidence-based medicine by utilizing the most up to date diagnostic tools, protocols, and treatments. At the same time we can learn from ancient and natural traditions that can benefit our children in ways that complement conventional medicine.

Our Approach to Pediatric Care

What does this look like? An initial evaluation typically includes:

  • Measuring the child's height
  • Measuring the child's weight
  • A bioimpedance analysis
  • A Nutri Energetic System scan
  • Standard laboratory blood tests
  • A saliva test

An individualized wellness plan may include:

  • Probiotics
  • A gluten-free diet
  • Acupressure
  • A rescue inhaler
  • Homeopathic remedies
  • Antibiotics
  • Herbs
  • Vitamins

As you can see, Pediatric Integrative Medicine 'cherry picks' the very best, scientifically supported, safe and effective therapies from both mainstream medical therapies and Complementary and Alternative medicine systems. We have found, over the course of many years, this approach effectively addresses the complex health conditions afflicting our patients and helps them get back on track towards physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness.

  • Definitely a game changer!

    “I just wanted to take a moment to email you to say thank you for your very detailed testing and even considering Lyme as a possible suspect to my ailments.* Had I not gone to see you I would have never even thought of Lyme as a reason for my weakness on my right arm and leg.* In your recommendations you had stated you wanted me to possibly get checked for Lyme and I asked and asked and not one insurance doctor would do the test.* Everyone said that there was no reason to check. Well, we moved to Virginia at the end of November and finally about three weeks ago the neurologist that I went to see for my migraines here tested me for Lyme. The results came back equivocal (1.10 on Elisa) and she simply stated that they found antibodies in my blood. And she started me on Doxycycline (100mg 2x day) for 21 days. I don’t know much about Lyme but will be seeing an infectious disease doctor on Wednesday. In the meantime, we had our newborn (born 1/21/13) tested with the Western blot and another test and per the pediatrician the results were negative. We will continue praying that he will not be affected. … Thank you very much for being that little guiding light that led us in the right direction.* Once again Dr.Grout, continue to do what you do.* You were definitely a game changer for sure.* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.

  • I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for my Son.

    “Do you remember us? You treated my son … years ago. I have since that time talked about your practice to everyone and anyone who will listen to me. I believe a couple of friends have brought their children to you as well. So just wanted to let you know that [he] was recently accepted into the University of Arizona. Another success story for you.* I am sure your practice changed his life.* I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for my Son. I wish you many, many years of continued success.* Be well and keep healing.* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.

  • Thankful!

    “I have a special reason this year [2012] to be grateful: today, the day before Thanksgiving, is my 12th birthday since the doctors told me in 2001 that I would most likely not celebrate another one. At the time of my diagnosis, giving thanks was the farthest thing from my mind. But I know now that I had every reason to be grateful.* My very advanced diagnosis let me decide that, if I was going to die, I would do so with as much grace, dignity, and quality of life as I could manage.* That meant I would make the decision to take the road less traveled and refuse the ‘standard of care’: surgery, high-dose chemo and radiation. It meant that I would look for things to clean and strengthen my body and immune system, that I would find ways to grow spiritually, emotionally, and psychologically. The nine years prior to 2001, when I was dealing with chronic disease, gave me the tools to create my own healing platform. This healing platform of integrated tools and anti-cancer strategies kept me alive until I found IPT Targeted Low-Dose chemotherapy in 2002 and allowed me to literally watch the cancer leave my body.* Ultimately, it all meant that I would change my focus on life from what I could get from it to what I could give to it.* Best Answer for Cancer Foundation (BAFC) is the pathway that allows me to give back. I’m so thankful for the assistance and guidance that has helped make BAFC a thriving reality. I’m so grateful to the physician members of BAFC: to the doctors who have treated so many cancer patients, myself included. These wonderful physicians give selflessly of their time, their talent and – many times – of their own income to help people in need. They are truly incredible people, and I am honored to know them and call them my friends.* Every day, in every way, I am humbled by and thankful for the patients who come to us, who give us the chance to help them, who have the courage to walk the road less traveled of alternative and integrative medicine. They also remind me of the most powerful healing opportunity of my life and the wonderful road that resulted from it.* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.

  • Doctors that listen and care!

    “I am a chronic Lyme patient and on a very long road to recovery. I have seen many doctors. I can't count the times I have felt like I was on the clock or get my 15 minutes of attention and then pushed out the door. At ACAM I never feel that way, for the first time I feel hope, understanding and compassion from Dr. Grout and her amazing staff!”
