How To Keep Your Kids From Getting Sick This School Year

Most parents are now getting into Back to School mode. You see the ads on TV, kids are getting ready, you are getting school supplies and new clothes. The question is, what are you doing to make sure your kids will not just be prepared for school, but that they are healthy? What is your family’s health plan to prevent illness this year and feel empowered to promote health vs fear sickness?

What Are your Plans The Next time You or Your Child Gets Sick?

  • Do you rush to the doctor for a diagnosis and treatment?
  • Do you reach for the Tylenol to lower the pain and the fever?
  • Do you stay home and skip your adjustment that day and go to the doctor?
  • Do you disinfect your entire house in an attempt to kill every invisible bug out there?

The sickest kids we see in our office are the ones that take the most medications…then when those kids start getting adjusted and stop taking medications they become the healthiest kids we care for. This is the kind of testimonial that we see weekly at New Life Chiropractic:

…after a year of Chiropractic we only had one visit to our medical doctor for our 3-year-old daughter versus the year before we had 12 visits!

The biggest problem with medications like antibiotics is that they are ineffective against the innate intelligence of bacteria, and they are becoming even less effective every year. As parents, we show love to our children by caring for them when they are sick. Unfortunately, this almost always means giving them some sort of medication, whether it is over the counter or prescribed. We are taught to fear viruses and that vaccines will save us from these illness by creating immunity.

Please rethink this way of managing the health of your family.

Your Body Can Self Heal

Here is the good news…bacteria and viruses may be smart, but your body has an innate intelligence too!

The key is to work with this intelligence and to harness it, not to suppress it. Remember, your body heals itself, not drugs, antibiotics and vaccines.

First, realize that if you or your child has a fever, that is innate intelligence at work. Anything 103 degrees and below is fine. In fact, it is a healthy thing.

Your body is smart, and it raises temperature so that bacteria cannot survive. Bacteria or viruses quickly die off at these temperatures. Taking a medication to lower your fever (called an antipyretic) WORKS AGAINST INNATE! If your child’s temperature goes above 103, I suggest a cold shower or ice bath before you start dumping in the medication. Recent reports with the flu show that people who let their fevers ride out fought it off in 5 days versus 9 days in people that took aspirin or acetaminophen.

The “Truth” About Germ Theory

Here is the big secret nobody wants to talk about…if the germ theory was true, we would all be dead! If you culture my nose or your nose right now, there are all sorts of deadly bacteria and viruses to be found. But aren’t you are alive and well right now?

Does this mean germs do not in fact cause illness?

It means that when your immune system is strong, germs are no big deal, in fact, they seem to strengthen our immune systems. 

Unless you live in a bubble, you cannot avoid germs. So instead of disinfecting everything, put that energy into doing things that boost your immunity. One thing most people do not know is that your nervous system directly controls immune function and if there is any interference to brain and nervous system function (subluxation), your immune system will be weakened and less likely to fight off infection and disease.

How Chiropractic Care Works With Our Innate Healing Intelligence

Chiropractic is the only health profession that recognizes and aims to work with the brilliant design of our bodies.

How do I take care of my daughters?

  1. They have both been adjusted since birth and continue to get adjusted at least 1-2 times per month to keep them at optimal function preventatively and even more if they are having a health challenge.
  2. They eat organic healthy foods and were breast fed for at least 2 years, which has the most beneficial nutrients and immune properties.
  3. They have never been on any type of medication or over-the-counter ointment interfering with their body’s healing power.
  4. They are not loaded down with toxins, weakening their immune system from BPAs, plastics, fire retardants, pesticides, additives, vaccines, etc.

Both are healthy 5 Essentials kids. What we do to help them them heal better is to:

  • Adjust them daily
  • Increase supplements
  • Keep them warm
  • Give them baths with essential oils then rub the oils on their feet and let them rest

We then trust that their bodies will take care of the rest and there is NO FEAR. We have confidence and faith in the body’s ability to self-heal!

So I ask again, what would you do?

  • Have your kids even been checked for subluxation?
  • Are you living the 5 Essentials for your family?
  • Do you know other families who need help?

Is Your Family Ready for a Healthy School Year?
