Parenting has never been an easy job, and parents always have one concern front and center – our kids’ health and well-being. So, we want to have a critical discussion about a topic that often remains hidden in our pursuit of children’s health: Birth Trauma.
If you’ve tirelessly embraced lifestyle changes, removed toxins from your home and diet, and yet your child still battles allergies, asthma, frequent colds, and neurological challenges like ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder, and anxiety, this blog is for you. We will delve into the science behind why many children struggle with toxins and chemicals, such as food additives, preservatives, gluten, and dairy.
The Quest for Answers
In a world where traditional medicine often attributes children’s health challenges to genetics and bad luck, we, as parents, know there’s more to the story. Our journey often leads us to explore alternative approaches and natural healing, but this path can be overwhelming. We encounter a flood of information about root causes and natural remedies, and it’s easy to feel lost.
One of the initial steps we’re encouraged to take in the realm of Natural Health is the removal of toxins and chemicals from every aspect of our lives, from household cleaners to food. It’s an applaudable effort by you, parents, but there’s more to the puzzle.
Birth Trauma – The Overlooked Factor
In our practice, we’ve witnessed numerous cases where amazing parents like you have diligently pursued toxin-free living and dietary changes, yet their children continue to struggle. In nearly 90% of these cases, a common denominator emerges – birth trauma resulting from interventions like c-sections, forceps, and vacuum.
So, what exactly does birth trauma do to a child’s health? Let’s break it down:
- Birth Injury and Nervous System Disruption: Birth Trauma often leads to a shift in the child’s Central Nervous System, resulting in a state known as subluxation or sympathetic dominance.
- The Brainstem Connection: The injury frequently occurs in the brainstem region, negatively affecting the function of the Vagus Nerve.
- Vagus Nerve’s Crucial Role: The Vagus Nerve plays a pivotal role in regulating the autonomic nervous system, particularly concerning digestive and immune function.
- Sustained Challenges: As long as subluxation and Vagus Nerve dysfunction persist, the child will continue to struggle with gut and immune health, regardless of how clean their diet and environment are.
If you’ve exhausted every natural solution, spent tons of money investing in clean organic foods, and embraced natural cleaning products, you’ve taken significant steps in the right direction. However, there is still more to discover about the power of your child’s nervous system and health.
