I have been adjusting kids since I started my practice. But I didn’t have any kids, so it was weird at first… uncomfortable. Then I had good stories, lots of them, like any chiropractor who focuses on helping kids be well. Before I knew it, I was seeing a dozen kids a day, and hearing more and more stories. Then 50, and when I finally topped out I was adjusting nearly 150 kids a day. The stories poured in, and in cases where they didn’t, we learned. I learned.
So with that knowledge of what we achieved, I bring you this list of reasons to get your kids adjusted, your grand kids, your nieces and nephews.
So they don’t become you. Yep, simple but very true. Your problems, your loss of cervical curve, your titled pelvis and weakened lumbar spine. All of these developed young, while sitting at a desk, and playing a video game… bent over reading a book. All of these things developed in time, but began early. As we begin the subtle correction of degenerative changes in posture, it has become quite obvious that children who we have ample opportunity to coach, maintain good spines. I use my daughter Brooke as an example. As a 5’5″ 12 year old, she tends to want to stand hunched over. Yet through our care, even though she stands bent, she has a great cervical curve, and her spine is very much in alignment. Even though at one point she had a mild curve (scoliotic curve), it is now gone.
Because the sooner you teach them that the pursuit of health matters, the more they will adopt that belief and that importance into their own lives. I have also witnessed this. Parenting styles differ, there is no doubt that some people take the ongoing teaching of values as something that you drive home, where others may feel like the time will come when it comes. Regardless, I have noticed how children who are given a steady taste of health focus, will begin to gravitate towards those choices. Now, I am not saying they won’t run in the direction of sugar… but they will also be sure to grab a few bites of salad first.
Our leadership towards health choices brings kids along, they get it. The more they are conditioned that way the better.
Shockingly, this one has nothing to do with the actual care of the children, but it has everything to do with the choice for care of a child. As you ask us more questions about taking care of your kids, you will do better. Dr. Robert Mendelsohn became famous in the alternative health world as well as the pediatrician world for his book, “Raising a Healthy Child… in Spite of your Doctor”. The more questions you ask about, the more likely you are to make wise decisions. To avoid pitfalls that capture so many people, and to make a way for you to truly achieve a healthy family. Because of you. Be smart, don’t be misled.
This family performs traction together, they get adjusted together, and they pursue health together. A Perfect example of our point number 3.
Because a natural solution is better than a drug. When I read the first peer review journal published article that tied the use of antibiotics to the incidence of cancer, I knew it to be true. When I read the third article, I understood completely why it happens, and by the tenth, it was clear that every use of antibiotic it important. Why? Because right now today, you have no idea when you might be tempted to use one again. And by the time you have used them for three months in a row, you have already increased your long term health risks.
When we take care of children, not only do we speak the truth into you that you desperately need in those moments. We also speak the truth into you about the potential for health through other options. Through nutrition, and the occasional homeopathic. But as you will always hear me scream… basic nutrition first. I care more about the right number of fruits and vegetables more than I care about any homeopathic. This is why I care about Juice Plus as a supplement more than others. The base nutrition, it all comes from the food that God put on the earth.
Last, but definitely not least. This is the most important of everything we have said so far. Because the value of an aligned atlas for a child fighting viruses, bacteria, and other foreign invaders. A research study demonstrated how the immediate increase in the white blood cell count of the PMN Neutrophils, the white blood cells that can turn into whatever the body needs, viral killers, bacterial killers, cancer killers… increases by up to 15% in the immediate minutes following an adjustment. This means that every time a child has a misaligned atlas adjusted, that child becomes a more complete killer of whatever needs to be killed.
I have seen infections wiped out, but more importantly… I have seen so many sick kids become well. Ear infections ended. Respiratory infections a thing of the past. Asthma reversed, and what would be considered lifetime diagnoses reversed.
The greatest value to your child, is to be under our care, because at the end of the day, they will be healthier. Right now we are checking kids out, as a “Back to School” special, for $29. Pass the news on, and lets save the world from itself… together.
