“Raising children isn’t easy” is an understatement. In addition, The Owners Manual to Children is a great idea, but who could write it? There are many views and beliefs about caring for our children’s health but the most common remedy and prevention in this country is: medication and vaccination. It isn’t what our forefathers or our great grandparents did, but it is what society tells us to do and that may not be in our children’s best interest. Drug companies dominate health care but is it really health care or sick care, and who is benefiting, the drug companies or our children? This may be the reason the number one cause of liver failure isn’t alcohol but Tylenol poisoning. There are many healthy alternatives to traditional medical care for children and adults.
Chiropractic is a great way to correct and maintain nervous system health in children from pregnancy and infancy, on to adulthood. Structurally it makes perfect sense to keep the spine aligned after a traumatic birth. As the child learns to walk and falls off bikes or playsets, returning the spine to its correct position is vital. Sports injuries need correction even if there is no pain, as these could lead to serious adult problems. Poor posture, heavy backpacks and scoliosis are obvious reasons for gentle chiropractic alignments, but there are other more unusual reasons for chiropractic for kids. Ear infections, asthma, allergies, colic, and bedwetting are often corrected by chiropractic care and there are no dangerous side effects.
In addition to chiropractic care for holistic health, homeopathic remedies, herbs and essential oils are a great alternative to medications but knowledge on the subject is important. There are many good books and holistic health care professionals that can guide you in the best way to add natural healthcare to your present childrearing style. Remember that knowledge is power and you are your child’s health advocate. For more information on Raising Children Naturally check out our website at FullLifeChiropractic.com.
