Raising a Healthy Family

No Need For Fear

If we are being honest, the world around us has a lot of unhealthy families. We are the leading country of infant mortality, almost 40% of our children are obese, and over 40 kids are diagnosed with cancer a day. Whether it’s emotionally or physically, there are several ways to make positive change. There are some obvious tips such as not feeding kids sugar, resting enough, or chemicals in the environment. We will dive into the important changes people often miss.

Although every parent worries for their children, there are lots of practical steps to take in order to avoid many of these statistics. These three steps will empower you to take charge of the responsibility we have as parents.

3 Practical Ways to Raise a Healthy Family

  1. Honor Your Symptoms

    There is no food, supplement, or pill to take when your immune system is showing you symptoms. If your child has a fever, their body is fighting bacteria, disease, or going through change. Pediatric journals state your body has to get to 102°F to kill a bacteria and 104°F to kill a virus.  If you cough, your body is trying to eliminate what is in your body. If your sinuses drain, your body is creating a mucus build up to get rid of what is in your body. The worse thing you can do is give your child a pill to mask the symptom. Honor a fever, cough, or runny nose. Allow their body to do what it was created to do (Psalm 139:14).

  2. Introduce Chiropractic Care

    This is extremely valuable to the whole family, especially children. 90% of stimulation to the brain comes from the movement of your spine. The US has the highest infant mortality rate. With chiropractic care, adjustments align the spine to function properly and in return allow your body to respond properly. Your spine can get subluxated, or misaligned, even from birth. When your body is in a stress state, or fight or flight mode, you experience symptoms such as high blood pressure, heart rate, weakened immune system, and weakened digestive system. Chiropractic helps your body adapt to your environment, not because it treats your symptoms, but because it helps your body be able to heal itself.

  3. Understand Vaccines 

    This is not an article on whether you should or should not give your child vaccines. This is vital as a parent to become aware and active in researching what your children are being given. For vaccinations, research the physiological effects of giving multiple vaccines together. Don’t just research the prevention benefits, also research the ingredients and mechanisms of vaccines in the body. If you don’t study the anatomy and physiology of your children, you will never know what your doctor is prescribing. At the end of the day, you are ultimately responsible for any outcome based on giving or not giving your child a vaccine. Research beyond one article and one video; researching for yourself has a more powerful foundation for what you believe in and stand for.

Bonus Tip: Screen Time

This tip is not just for kids. It is also for parents and teens. The amount of screen time for kids is damaging and stressful to their neurology. As their brain is trying to develop it stays in a high stress response. These are then labeled with diagnosis like ADD and ADHD. Not only is it neurologically damaging but it is also extremely addictive. Regulating the use or eliminating certain devices will increase focus, development, and quality family time.
