More Than an Adjustment

Your body heals itself from the inside out, not the outside in. Your body just needs to remove interference to heal properly. Chiropractic care helps more than just back and neck pain. It is a key factor in improving digestive and overall health. When there are interferences in the spine, your nerves cannot function properly. Interferences, such as losing the curvature in your neck or lower back, create a chain of health issues.

Your Curve Matters

The spine incases the spinal cord, which is the only organ that is completely encased by bone. It is also connected to every organ throughout the body, along with tissues and cells. The spinal cord needs mobility. 90% of the stimulation to your brain comes from the movement of your spine. Our society has become so sedentary that it hinders this important factor. The correct curve of your spine creates a biomechanically sound structure so that gravity can evenly distribute weight throughout your spine. When weight is evenly distributed, you are avoiding disc herniation, degeneration, and multiple health issues.

Why Adjustments Matter

When you adjust the spine, it puts motion into the vertebrae and in return blocks stress responses in that area. When stress is removed, the body can balance itself into a homeostasis state. Adjustments increase your IGA levels. IGA levels are a huge part of your immune system; so when you are being adjusted, you are increasing the health of your immune system. The immune system is only one system that is supported through adjustments. Every area is significantly affected by the movement of the spine.

4 Areas of the Spine + Their Significance to Your Health

1. Cervical (Neck)

Certain health issues that stem from this region can include insomnia, digestive issues, migraines, allergies, and more. When an adjustment removes interference, the functioning of your brain, eyes, ears, vocal chords, thyroid,  neck, shoulders, and elbows will increase.

2. Thoracic (Upper Back)

Certain health issues that stem from this region can include asthma, heart conditions, bronchitis, heartburn, and more. When an adjustment removes interference, the functioning of your heart, lungs, gallbladder, liver, stomach, pancreas, intestines, spleen, kidney, and hands will increase.

3. Lumbar (Lower Back)

Certain health issues that stem from this region can include hernias, constipation, menstrual issues, cramps, miscarriages, bed wetting, and more. When an adjustment removes interference, the functioning of your appendix, abdomen, sex organs, bladder, knees, prostate gland, sciatic nerve, legs, and feet will increase.

4. Sacral (Pelvic Region)

Certain health issues that stem from this region can include sacroiliac conditions, hemorrhoids, pruritus, spinal curvatures, and more. When an adjustment removes interference, the functioning of your hip bones, buttocks, and rectum will increase.

What Exactly is It?

Flu season typically comes around October-December. This is a common phrase thrown around that indicates the rise of flu-like symptoms to occur. The flu is not something that comes around during these months specifically; in fact, the flu has everything to do with the stress state of your body. During these months your body is undergoing the highest levels of stress. Your immune system can become suppressed, which allows your body to be susceptible to a flu virus.

Changing the Norm

The worst thing to prevent the flu is to receive a flu shot. Research from the CDC, Journal of Medicine, and more have shown study after study why this is true. It does not prevent the flu, but it is guaranteed to inject aluminum and other harmful chemicals into your body. These add stress and toxins to your body, which causes more harmful side effects. When your body is under stress it is also remaining in a fight or flight mode. When your body is in this state, the immune system lowers because it is focused on surviving. Stress increases during the holidays not only emotionally, but also chemically based on the foods that are consumed. To avoid compromising your immune system, following these five steps will point you in the optimal direction for health.

5 Ways to Avoid the Flu Season as a Whole

1. Apple Cider Vinegar/Elderberry

These two boosts the immune system. ACV balances stomach acid and helps your microbiome which makes up 80-90% of your immune system. Elderberry is great for the immune system, high antioxidant, and is high in vitamin C. Both these are great for adults and children.

2. Anti-Inflammatory Diet

This change alone could eliminate almost every flu symptom. When you eliminate foods like sugars and grains, you increase the nutrients your body obtains and lower inflammation. This can be the most effective change to avoid getting the flu.

3. Vitamin D3/Vitamin C

These increase your overall immune health. (When taking Vitamin D3, make sure it also contains K2, magnesium, and Vitamin A/E) Rather than taking supplements for Vitamin C, get this source naturally from foods. A great example is squeezing 3 lemons in your water each day. That is equivalent to the daily amount needed for Vitamin C.

4. Probiotics

Unfortunately, the use of antibiotics has killed a large portion of many people’s healthy bacteria. 80-90% of your immune system is in your gut. Our bodies are more microbiome than we are human cells. It is important to give your body good bacteria within the immune system to help fight off illnesses.

5. Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic adjustments increase your CD4 count, which means it increases the health of your immune system. Adjustments also increase your IDA levels which are found within your gut, increasing your immune system and digestive system as well. Adjustments balance stress levels, stimulate the nervous system and allows your body to be in a homeostasis state.

Regaining Hormone Balance

Avoiding Further Health Issues

Menstrual cycle issues, PCOS, ovarian cyst, and even breast cancer can all stem from hormone disruptions. Certain times of developmental growth, even within the womb, can be interrupted by specific chemicals that affect our growth and causes certain diseases. Studies have shown over 300 million dollars are spent annually on hormonal issues within our country. Some of the disrupters are due to personal choices, but also products we consume that contain toxic chemicals ultimately manipulating our health.

Taking Charge of Hormonal Issues

When your hormones are imbalanced, everything is affected. Not only do you experience health side effects, but it can also alter your mood and even personality. The range of issues vary; they can be as low as irritability and as high as cancer or autoimmune diseases. These six tips are simple changes you can make for you and your family today. Regardless of where your hormone levels are, you can change them drastically. Connect with a natural health doctor who will assist and guide you through making these changes. Taking one step at a time will begin to transform the performance of everyday living. Your body is worth investing in through time, products, foods, and knowledge.

Top 6 Hormonal Disrupters

1. Plastics (BPAs)

These act like hormones within our body. Eliminate containers made of plastic for food, drinks, toys, and more. Avoid buying plastic products such as baby bottles and pacifiers. BPA free is a better alternative, but there are more chemicals within the plastic that are harmful. Going on the Body Ecology Diet or Plant Paradox Diet will not only eliminate antibiotic foods in your diet, but also heal the microbiome and digest food easier within your gut.

2. Phthalates

These are found in clothing, cleaning products, beauty products, fragrances, and more. Phthalates are highly toxic to the body. Switch your products to 100% organic to avoid using these toxins.

3. Triclosan

This is found in “antibacterial” products. It can be put in anything from soaps, cosmetics, and even toothpaste. It is marketed to prevent bacteria from entering the body. However, when you constantly kill off bacteria it also kills off good bacteria found within the body. This is harmful considering up to 90% of your immune system is bacteria.

4. Birth Control

You are affecting your endocrine system at a synthetic level, which disrupts your body’s ability to balance its own hormones naturally. Long term effects can be infertility, depression, cervical cancer and more. Birth control ultimately lowers hormones and increases health issues. Birth control does not solve health issues; it only acts as a temporary band-aid with additional side effects.

5. Health and Beauty Products

A simple change for these products is to make sure they are organic. Avoid products with long lists of ingredients. With these products, less is more. You want a high-quality product that is not going to affect your hormonal health if you come in contact with it, especially when you are putting it directly on your body.

6. Diet

This is the most important and most impactful way to allow your body to produce balanced hormones. Simple diet tips are to remove refined sugars, soy products, grains, GMO products, and antibiotic dairy products. Grow your own fruits and vegetables or find a close-to-home organic farmer for the best source of food.

Bacteria, Fungus, and Viruses

The Key to Health

Ultimately when there’s an overgrowth of yeast, it is an issue of the microbiome within the digestive system or body. Our body is 85% microbiome, which includes healthy bacteria and fungus found in our gut. Having a healthy microbiome is the key to longevity and health. This also boosts our immune system which protects the body from issues like yeast infections, candida overgrowth, or skin problems.

The Main Factor

Bacteria have antifungal and antiviral effects. Viruses have antibacterial and antifungal effects. Fungi have antibacterial and antiviral effects. They live in symbiosis together, balancing one another out. Once an antibiotic is taken, it kills the bacteria and increases the growth of fungus. Overgrowth of yeast within the body has a direct correlation to the immense use of antibiotics whether directly taken or pumped through our source of food. Antibiotics are not limited to medications but are also in soaps, baby wipes, creams, and more. The food and products we put into our bodies are vital in the balance of bacteria, fungus, and viruses.

5 Ways to Eliminate Yeast Overgrowth in the Body

1. Gut Healing Foods

Going on the Body Ecology Diet or Plant Paradox Diet will not only eliminate antibiotic foods in your diet, but also heal the microbiome and digest food easier within your gut.

2. Probiotics

Using a healthy source, like the Garden of Life, will nourish your digestive system. Taking a dosage of 400 billion probiotics for 4-5 days then 100 billion for a month will replenish your system. After this, you can take 50 billion as a maintenance.

3. Apple Cider Vinegar

Taking a spoonful of ACV with water first thing in the morning and right before bed. You can also take a spoonful right before your meals.

4. Fermented Foods

A popular fermented drink is Kombucha. Other great sources of fermented food are kimchi, sauerkraut, kifer, and more. The key is quality of fermented food.

5. Immune Support

Taking supplements like Vitamin D3 with K2 and magnesium. Also, eating things like garlic and ginger are natural support for your immune system daily. You can drink organic cranberry juice or lemons alkalize the body. And high quality bone broth provide health benefits for your overall health.

Healthcare Crisis

The healthcare system has had no issue focusing their time and energy on ways to financially provide healthcare. Our focus should shift from affording healthcare to transforming healthcare. Studies continuously show we are the sickest industrialized country with the most doctors, medicine, and treatment options. We are 5% of the world’s population and we consume 75% of the world’s medications. Statistically, one out of two people will have heart disease and one out of three people will have cancer. It is evident the healthcare sytem is failing us.

Do You Have a Plan?

Thankfully, you have full control of taking responsibility of your health. The question to ask yourself is do you have a game plan? We are not just talking about a specific insurance plan, but more about a plan of action. Most plans are in place of emergency situations, rather than preventing detrimental health disasters. It’s all about building up health. It’s giving your body strength for its optimal ability to function and heal. This is how you keep yourself from  getting things like heart disease, cancer, back pain, digestive problems, and more. Health is more than focusing on one thing. It’s multiple lifestyle habits working together to make sure your body is functioning at 100%.

Changing Societal Norms

As a society, we are very aware of following protocols from medications to cover up health symptoms. Where we lack, however, is dealing straight with the root cause. Our body was not made to heal from the outside in. Instead, it was powerfully created to heal from the inside out. A proactive question to ask yourself before taking medications or following a treatment for symptoms is, “will this remove the interference causing the underlying issue and is it going to rebuild health, strength, and healing?” Creating a game plan with your spouse and family for each of the following topics will set your family up for overall success and health.

5 Ways to Build Health as a Family

1. Diet

Focusing on non-inflammatory foods will drastically change the way your body functions. Almost every named diet follows this specific step. If your body is inflamed, then your body is building disease. Adults typically feel effects faster than a child’s due to the strength of a child’s body. The issue with this, however, is your child will eventually see side effects overtime. Watching your water intake, electrolytes, and minerals are equally important.

2. Recovery

What does your sleep schedule look like? What about your child’s ? A parent’s amount of rest effects the entire household’s health. Lack of prioritizing sleep can result in issues between spouses, children, and your overall health. It is vital to get 7-9 hours of sleep and remain in a mental state of peace as often as possible throughout the day. Recovery is vital for exercise, also. Without it, you are breaking your body down opposed to building  muscle.

3. Exercise

Our society is so sedentary that it requires us to prioritize full range of motion movement daily.   Exercise increases oxygen, regulates our hormones, and strengthens our cardiovascular health. It’s important to understand the different effects on woman’s and men’s bodies when it comes to exercise. As a family, walking can be a key to your health. This is an easy routine to get into, decreasing screen time and increasing health physically and emotionally.

4. Adjustments

Your spine is essential to the nervous system’s functionality. Your nervous system is vitally important because it controls 90% of the brain’s stimulation and is also connected to every organ in the body. Movement feeds the brain so when disks are holding extra pressure or misaligned, health issues begin to rise. Adjustments alone do not heal the body. Adjustments assist in removing interference so the body can heal itself properly.

5. Mindset

The most important aspect of your health is your mindset. Your perspective on life impacts the stress released throughout your body and ultimately the way your body functions. Your mindset can be impacted by multiple things. If your diet is poor, your mindset will follow. Inflammation causes brain fog, fatigue, and memory loss. If you have little to no movement daily, you will increase the chances of depression. Studies prove the positive effects of exercise are greater than depression medications time and time again.

The Harmful Prescription

The amount of issues for woman’s health have sky rocketed whether it has to do with menstruation, PSCOS, cramping, and more. The scary factor to many of these symptoms is caused by a prescription of birth control. The prescription is being used toward those symptoms rather than to prevent pregnancy as it was originally intended for. Birth control not only masks these symptoms, but creates a lot more health effects when it comes to woman’s hormones. Birth control alone can affect not only the chances of getting pregnant in the future, but also increase the risk of having cervical and breast cancer. Birth control synthetically alters how the body is supposed to naturally function and creates an interference to your body adapting in a healthy way.

The Root of Imbalances

A menstrual issue means your body is dealing with a hormone imbalance. Addressing the root cause is the only way to eliminate these health symptoms. The increase of (chemical, physical, and emotional) stress in our society adds to the likeliness of a hormone imbalance. Some stressors are unavoidable, but there are many you have the ability to eliminate in from your daily life. Missing a menstrual cycle or not having them at all is extremely unhealthy to your body. Masking hormonal issues takes a negative toll on your overall health. Your cycle should last 5-7 days to produce the endometrium. This means your body has enough lining to reproduce, proper hormone balance, and overall health. The only way for your body to heal itself is to balance itself out with zero interference so it can become more resilient to stress.

4 Ways to Change Hormone Issues

1. Anti-Inflammatory Diet

There are many resources online or in books that elaborate on this type of diet, but eliminating foods such as pasta, bread, rice, and grains will allow your body to stabilize itself to remain in homeostasis, which ultimately is the only place your body can level its hormones out naturally.

2. Adaptogens

Unlike medications that mask symptoms, adaptogens support the body to be more resilient to stress and level the hormones within your body. Some amazing examples of these would be a high quality CBD oil or Ashwagandha.

3. Reduce Stress

Eliminating unnecessary stressors can be emotional, chemical, or physical. Emotional stressors can be dealt with by evaluating your mindset and surrounding yourself with a support system. Chemical stressors can be avoided when you are conscious of things such as makeup, laundry detergent, air fresheners, and more. Physical stress can be eliminated when you are educated on how a woman’s body operates under intense training or exercise.

4. Chiropractic Care

Adjustments help your body adapt to the environment around you. A response is sent to your parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system to come into balance. When these are in balance, your endocrine system works healthily and your hormones produce properly.

Bonus Tip: Hormone Testing

Chiropractic care helps immensely with issues involving stress to the body, but also offers hormone testing.  Ask your chiropractor for more information about testing your levels to see exactly which hormones are imbalanced. Chiropractors are not trying to mask symptoms, they are the ones willing to do what it takes to find the root cause.

The Newest Research

In 2019, studies have shown that chiropractic care is an effective protocol in aiding the breech presentation in the birthing process. Annually about 4 percent of women report to their obstetrician with a fetus in breech presentation, or rather when the fetus us not head down but rather has their buttocks or feet closer to the cervix. Expectant mothers notice their baby is in a breech position most notably by symptoms such as heavy pressure on the pelvis, kicks felt to the pelvis or to the ribcage.

Drawing Conclusions

The Journal of Pediatric, Maternal and Family Health Chiropractic did a recent case study which found positive health outcomes following Chiropractic care of a pregnant patient with a transverse lie fetal position. Throughout the case study, a patient at 27 weeks pregnant was adjusted 29 times using Webster Technique (developed particularly for prenatal women) and had pre and post confirming the transition of the fetus from breech to a vertical position with the head facing downward. Another study in 2012, a pregnant patient of 30 weeks with twins was diagnosed by her obstetrician of breech positioning, underwent 5 adjustments over 3 weeks. Her obstetrician confirmed that the involved twin was in proper vertical position post treatment and the patient had a successful drug free, vaginal birth one month after the initial visit to the chiropractor.

Healthy Mother and Baby

The conventional resolution to a breech fetus at the point of delivery, is a cesarean procedure but there is a complication to both mother and baby. Infection, hemorrhage, injury to organs and a risk of additional surgeries are possibilities for birthing mothers let alone the possible risks to the infant including breathing problems, lower APGAR scores and possible fetal injury during the procedure. Prior to delivery, the established method of turning fetus is through External Cephalic Version or ECV. This involves the doctor using their hands to manipulate the baby’s position by forcefully pushing on the mother’s belly and abdomen to turn the baby from the outside. One obstetrician stated that the procedure reports a 50/50 success rate of turn and it is very uncomfortable and painful for women. The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects on pelvic joint dysfunction and in doing so, function in the sacral/pelvic region is improved. Relaxing the tense muscles and ligaments around the pelvis, may allow the baby to comfortably assume the best position for birth.

Four Ways to Have a Healthy Pregnancy

1. Awareness of Stress

The first step in a healthy term is decreasing stress and the level of the stress hormone known as cortisol, that can increase up to 4 times more than normal whilst pregnant. Gentle stretching, breathing exercises, meditation and regular sleeping cycles can reduce high tense and anxious moments to aid in the body’s balance to stress.

2. Chiropractic Care

Prenatal patients experiencing pelvic discomfort, lower back and sacrum pain have garnered relief throughout their term of pregnancy and being under chiropractic care. Low force techniques such as Webster and Thompson technique allow the misalignment of the body to be corrected, ligaments to be relaxed and the nervous system to be in balance for the birth of the newborn child.

3. Nutrition

Food is a crucial part of life and especially during pregnancy. Having enough carbohydrates for energy is key that comes from whole foods such as lentils, legumes, fruits and vegetables. Decreasing trans fats such as vegetable and canola oils can reduce the chances of hypertension, obesity in the child and Diabetes Mellitus. Using ghee and avocado oil to cook hot food, wild caught fish and avocados can introduce good healthy fats into Mother’s and baby’s system before birth to help with absorbing nutrients and to produce important hormones. It is important to remember that though weight gain occurs during pregnancy, which some woman are self-conscious of during this time, it is important to remember that undernourished mothers can produce less milk by 30% and lower calorie milk by up to 20% so proper food intake is key during and after pregnancy.

4. Movement

It is helpful for your body to adapt for the pregnancy by incorporating low impact exercises such as walking or yoga. In addition to exercising, stretches are equally as important to be prepared for your birth.

Vacation Season

Whether you’re an avid traveler or  go on a vacation once a year, there are many preventative ways to assure a healthy travel experience. Most vacations involve indulgence of food and drinks followed by a week of your body recovering. After eating certain foods, you may feel fatigued which disables you to enjoy your vacation to the fullest. Most vacations also cost tons of extra money solely due to going out to eat. Luckily, we have some tips to help you out!

Health Concerns Over Time

One of the main places that is impacted while traveling is your spine. Your spine is connected to your nervous system which controls the functioning and healing of your body. It is important to know how to prevent negative impact to your spine while also staying healthy during your travel experience.

3 Ways to Assure Healthy Traveling

1. Traveling Process

A healthy trip begins with the mindset going into it. Being aware of your posture while driving can prevent aches and pains during your travel experience. A posture tip for the car would look like arranging your rear view mirror high enough to where you can see, but also in a position to make you sit up straight. Having the seat leaned back, leaning to the side, or driving with one arm can cause misalignment over a long period of time.

2. Prolonged Sitting

Don’t go more than a couple hours sitting. At rest stops, make it priority to do some jumping jacks, squats, and stretches. Even during your drive, or ride on an airplane, you can wobble your body back and forth to keep your spine in movement. Other ways to take advantage of prolonged sitting is wiggling your toes and moving your legs.

3. What You Eat

Food for long road trips are typically purchased at a gas station along with caffeinated drinks. To avoid these options with high fructose corn syrup and other added sugars, go to your local grocery store to prepare in advance. Purchase organic whole foods that are convenient and healthy for your body to function such as bananas, blueberries, and coconut water. Even at your destination, instead of eating out purchase organic groceries like grass fed meat, free range eggs, and lots of fruits and vegetables. This saves money, time, and health. 

Follow Up Trip

It is vital after traveling to visit your chiropractor. Getting back to your normal routine adjustments will keep your spine aligned and strong. Your chiropractor will be able to adjust specific areas effected by long distance driving, airplane rides, and more. Your body will thank you after traveling.

Severity of Text Neck

Medical Diagnosis

Text neck may sound made up; however, it has become an actual medical diagnosis in our technological day and age. Many people suffer from text neck if they are active in daily texting, social media, or gaming. When your neck is subluxated, or misaligned, many health issues can stem from your neck. The main thing the medical field  shares on this topic is usually symptoms, but it is more important to talk about prevention. The missing link in health care is the definition of true health. Health is the optimal functioning and healing of our body, not merely the absence of disease. So although our daily lives evolve, we have the information to prevent these negative effects on our body from happening.

Importance of Spine and Nervous System

Any medical advice you receive should link back to the definition of health. Always ask, “Is this going to help me function and heal better or is it going to interfere with my body’s ability to function and heal?” The central nervous system controls these two aspects from the beating of your heart to the digestion in your stomach.

Correct Spinal Curve

Normal healthy necks have a nice 40-45 degree curve. When this curve is extended or lowered, the disks in your neck have uneven weight which cause nerve damage, pain, and irritation. Maintaining a healthy curve in your neck and overall spine is important given the fact you only get one spine. It is important to keep up with it. The typical response is when symptoms occur. Issues with the neck lead to numbness, tingling in your arms, sciatic nerve pain, leg pain, and more. We want to educate others to prevent these symptoms from happening. There is a misconception to wait until something is wrong to fix it, but following prevention will avoid these health issues completely. You hold the ability to be proactive in your health.

5 Ways to Focus on Prevention

1. Posture

Being aware of your posture while sitting, driving, and even standing will keep your body in alignment preventing unwanted curvature.

2. Sitting

Make it a point to stand every 15-20 minutes to deviate from prolonged sitting. Invest in a stand up desk or swap your chair for an exercise ball.

3. Screen Time

Limiting screen time, especially for children, will be extremely preventative. Screen time has additional health effects where limiting would be beneficial.

4. Backpack

Make sure kids are aware of posture when carrying a backpack. The extra weight can cause people to hunch over or slouch backward.

5. Sleeping

Avoid sleeping on your stomach. The best position to keep your neck in proper alignment is sleeping on your back.

The Fix

So what if you already have text neck? It is highly recommended to get x-rays from your chiropractor to know how misaligned your neck is. Primary doctors will be able to do this, but typically recommend exercise and medication. Visit a chiropractor to fix your current situation where you will receive adjustments, protocols for protection, and exercises specifically tailored to your neck.

A Whole New World

There are so many emotions bringing a child into the world just like there are also questions. Every parent wants to raise a healthy child, but with endless brands and news on what is best for your child can leave any parent confused. Instead of uncertainly tossing yourself into a new way of life, educate yourself on the natural way to improve your infant’s health.

Every Parent Needs to Know

As important as it is to keep up with your own health, there is another level of responsibility taking care of a child’s health. There are already enough chemicals and toxins in our world today to avoid. Most parents are unaware of choices that bring even more toxins into a child’s body. This ranges anywhere from baby cream to vaccinations. On top of these harmful substances, many doctors prescribe medications to infants without these prescriptions being tested on kids. This starts to harm children’s digestive and immune system.

Starting From Birth

The birthing process, in itself, can cause tons of trauma to a baby’s body including additional twisting and turning. Some labors may last up to 24 hours or even longer. Doctors tend to prescribe medication for health concerns, including acid reflux and constipation, instead of letting the body health itself from the inside out. Any chemical has a negative impact on your child’s health. Keeping your baby drug, medication free from the start is the ideal way to start raising your child.

3 Unique Ways to Raise a Healthy Infant

1. Chiropractic Care

It is not common to hear people adjust their newborn child after their born, even though it is one of the best actions you can take for your baby. The spine is connected to the nervous system which controls everything from your heart beating to your lungs breathing. Adjusting a newborn an bring a baby to be at their optimal function. Issues like digestion can be improved from adjusting the lower back, neck, or sacrum by opening up the spine to properly operate.

2. Magnesium

While breastfeeding, the mother can take a natural magnesium supplement to assure the baby receives this nutrient. Breastfeeding alone gives your baby all the proper enzymes, proteins, healthy fats, and so much more their body needs to develop healthily. Most formulas lead to digestive issues. Always ask your natural doctor, even chiropractor, for suggestions of formula with the most nutrient dense formulas.

3. Tea

To help with fussiness and lack of sleep, combining fennel, ginger, and chamomile tea together helps soothe babies. Giving them half a droplet will elevate gas and increase calmness.
