June is National Children’s Awareness Month. We at NWA Health Solutions love the work that we do with children every day. Dr. Sarah sees pediatric patients for a variety of reasons, ranging from colic to ear infections. Today’s children seem to have more health concerns than generations past. The increasing rates of food allergies, stress, depression, and childhood obesity are alarming. While the ongoing debate of why these conditions are overwhelming today’s children remains, we can offer some simple tips to improve your child’s overall well-being.
First and foremost, chiropractic care is critical from infancy to early adolescence. Regular adjustments help your body heal itself and balance the nervous system. A balanced nervous system equals better physical coordination and improved mental clarity.
The second most important thing you can do for your child is to keep him or her on a well-balanced diet. Raw, organic fruits and vegetables should be the core part of your child’s diet. Emphasize whole, unprocessed foods and try to completely eliminate foods that do not benefit your child nutritionally, such as soft drinks, fast food, pre-packaged foods, and anything containing trans-fat and artificial sugars. Also, try to incorporate as much water as possible. Everyone should consume half their weight in water ounces, daily.
Lastly, take your child outside every day for some fresh air, sunshine, and exercise. Today’s kids are overloaded with smartphones, video games, computers, and T.V. This technology has been partly to blame for rising levels of ADD/ADHD, sleep disorders, and childhood obesity. Not only does playing outdoors help integrate exercise into your child’s daily life, but it also gives your child a boost of Vitamin D, which is necessary to maintain strong bones, support healthy nerve function, and strengthen the immune system. Most importantly, it allows you to bond with your child while spending uninterrupted quality time together.
