5 Ways to Raise Healthier Kids

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.    

1. Develop Proper Eating Habits

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.  

2. Healthier Kids Get Regular Chiropractic Adjustments

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. 

3. Environmental Issues and The Nervous System

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. 

  • Some of the common symptoms are fatigue, joint pain and swelling, brain fog, skin problems, and abdominal pain or digestive issues.  
  • Common autoimmune conditions can present as diabetes, thyroid (Hashimoto’s), rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
  • Helping a body that is dealing with an autoimmune disease depends on the specific autoimmune disease. By uncovering the root cause, we can perform an assessment of the nervous system to see how it adapts. Testing can also help discover what environmental factors can lead to leaky gut and pathways. 
  • Common treatment options can include: neurology, chiropractic adjustments, and adapting a diet specific to the person. Developing a safe roadmap for the foods they eat is crucial to healing. Cellular healing protocols heal the gut and calm down inflammation from the inside out.

4. Discovering Which Foods to Avoid

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.
