Raising children in a toxic world can be overwhelming and scary, but there are many things we can do to help raise healthier kids. There are many factors we can control, and focusing on those is a great way to ensure you’re doing your best to limit their exposure to toxins. Kids are extremely resilient, and their nervous system does a wonderful job adapting to its environment. By following some simple tips, raising a healthy child can become second nature.
Following the Standard American Diet (SAD) doesn’t set your children up for a lifetime of health. By eating more organic, pasture-raised meats, organic vegetables, and fruits, you can help set your child’s body up for future healthy eating habits. When a baby is started off eating a healthy diet, their palate develops to enjoy wholesome, nourishing foods. A child that has improper eating habits and prefers processed “kid” foods can be at greater risk for adhd/add and delayed learning.
Here at Clarendon Chiropractic, we see children and provide chiropractic adjustments. Each child has unique health concerns and their parents have specific goals for their health. By regularly visiting a chiropractor, the child’s body is put into proper alignment, which can impact so many different functions of the body. Everyone can benefit from regular chiropractic care, but children especially can show tremendous improvement in digestion, elimination, and proper growth when adjusted regularly.
Chiropractic adjustment is especially beneficial to a child’s nervous system. A nervous system that can adapt to its environment can help prepare the child up for a lifetime of good health. Chiropractic care is about resetting the body and brain communication. When the spine is in proper alignment, the body has a better chance of properly eliminating unwanted toxins.
The body can suffer from general Inflammation which can lead to autoimmune diseases.
By performing simple lab work, we can help the individual figure out what foods are triggering their body. Instead of a blanket approach that says that everyone should avoid the same foods, we figure out what specifically a patient should avoid. Generally, even healthier kids have foods they need to avoid, but doing lab work can be a wonderful tool in discovering those specific foods.
