Healthy Kids Education
Healthy kids education? Healthy kids is what each parent wants and looks to achieve during their lifespan. When we think of healthy kids our first thought is typically free of disease and symptoms. Unfortunately, this is not the case for the growing trend in our society. As a chiropractor I come under the title of doctor, my mentors and schooling taught me that doctor means “teacher”. It is our responsibility to inform and educate about why you see a chiropractor and the endless health choices that come under specific chiropractic care. One of the first duties of the physician is to educate the masses not to take medicine – Sir William Osler. When it comes to health we have been masked to believe that it comes in the form of a lotion, pill or needle. Our body was not designed to process artificial stimulation on a continual basis, it is not the natural order. The body was designed to heal on its own accord and it takes time to heal.
To impact our society we need to focus on the kids. Healthy kids begins with the upbringing, foundation of healthy eating, regular exercise, and positive emotional stimulation. When it comes to their overall well-being and health related issues, chiropractors are primary health care doctors. The first physical trauma that we all experience is birth, regardless of how amazing it is, it is still traumatic. Right then you should be wanting your child checked to make sure that their nerve system is properly functioning. Nerves and chiropractic, the two words go hand in hand. Chiropractors are nerve system specialists who remove interference in the body by specifically adjusting subluxations. A subluxation occurs when stress is placed on a spinal nerve, thus in turn creating dysfunction within the body.
Healthy kids start with a healthy functioning nerve system. All processes that begin with signs and symptoms have an origin, a malfunctioning nerve system. Think of some common childhood health problems: ear infections, colic, constipation, colds, etc. If the immune system is compromised then the nerve system controlling this has to be compromised to an extent. So, what do we do if our kids have signs and symptoms? Get their nerve system checked! Want to boost their immune system the natural way? Want to help strengthen their immunity and potentially reduce the incidence of general illness? No drugs required! Regular chiropractic adjustments to ensure their optimal potential leads to healthy kids!
