Introducing Kim Latore, specialising in treating Children
- Written by Louise Stevens
I first became interested in complementary medicine after suffering with an illness. I was forced to self diagnose because western tests were not giving any answers to my feeling so unwell and I felt my health deteriorating. This started me on a path of research and experiencing many different therapies. I began to realise that we can be in control of our own health and well being and I feel strongly that we should be teaching our children this valuable lesson too. The most positive way to do this is to lead by example.
I experienced acupuncture and Chinese medicine for the first time while studying nutrition. This gave me a thirst to learn more, and the most exciting part, alongside the amazing results, is that there is something new to research in conjunction with the traditional. After all life is about balance.
I completed a 3 year honours degree in acupuncture and Chinese medicine at LCTA London in 2011 after which I studied a 1 year diploma course on paediatric acupuncture with Julian Scott. Prior to the acupuncture I attended a 1 year course in naturopathic nutrition, including a short course in food intolerance testing.
I have completed CPD courses on fertility and IVF support, eye health and Qi Gong.
As a mum of 3, I have a particular passion for treating babies and young children and have had great success in treating issues such as:
- Digestive and bowel problems,
- Sleeping issues,
- Coughs and colds,
- Skin and lungs disorders, and
- Eye conditions
I also find it very useful to support the immune system during immunisations or from the side effects of medications.
Babies and children respond extremely well to treatments as their energy is so vital. The needles do not need to be retained and any pain felt is very shortlived compared to the longterm benefits gained.
