Colic, Allergies, Ear Infections, Nursing Difficulties, and Cranky Sleepers – what could these all have in common? EACH of these things can be caused by stress, and one of the first stresses a baby experiences is being born. For example, birthing involves pushing and pulling (estimated 60lbs. of force on average), and then spanking, breathing, testing, and literally experiencing a whole new world. Eating can even be a stress if breastfeeding/latching is difficult, or if mom accidently consumes spicy food or caffeine. What if mom struggles to breastfeed due to work schedules? Among the eat, sleep, poop cycle of an infant’s life, there are so many opportunities for the body to become stressed – and we haven’t even started on the crawling, walking, and falling stage! Even though those cute little bodies aren’t falling far, proportionally their structure takes a great impact.
Because of this, ultimately, we recommend wrapping your baby in bubble wrap for 18 – 21 years, OR you could try chiropractic care… When your body experiences stress of any kind, it directly effects the Nervous System (nerves regarding the brain, not anxiety). That system is protected by a set of some very strong and flexible bones – the Spine. And when stress causes these bones to misalign, that central system, and everything that it controls, is directly affected. Getting checked by a Doctor of Chiropractic will give you insight into your child’s current level of health INTERNALLY (functionally), and what kind of path they are starting on for the rest of their lives (structurally). In reality, stress doesn’t stop after 18 – 21 years, it just takes different forms other than colic and ear infections. Consider getting the whole family checked to reach your optimal wellness potential.
