Could this be the missing piece to healing your child from chronic illness?
After being in the pediatric field for over 18 years now, I've noticed some alarming trends.
Kids are sicker than ever.
By the age of 16, 54% of children have a chronic illness diagnosis.
I was really hoping that by this point in my career I'd have good news on this front, but things are only getting worse.
And even more concerning…
The tools we use to help kids heal are becoming less and less effective.
A great example of this was a gluten free/dairy free diet, previously created huge improvements for most kids. This is no longer the case.
So what the heck is going on?
I've spent years researching children's health and toxins. In the introduction of my book, Heal Your Child from the Inside Out, I discussed the myriad of toxins that are making our kids sick. The original draft was over 30 pages long!
My editor actually cut about two-thirds of it because she said it would be too depressing. At the time, all I had to offer was toxin avoidance but, reality check, there's no way to completely avoid toxins.
It was through my own family health crisis that the solutions crystallized and I could see the final pieces of the puzzle that were needed to truly help families reclaim their health.
And I didn’t have to throw out my modern conveniences or move to a mountain top and become a goat farmer to get away from toxins.
So, there is hope! Here's the way I look at it…
Even though we're facing these challenges, our bodies are amazing! They were designed to heal themselves with the right help.
That's where detox comes in.
It's a process of safely, effectively, and gently pulling toxins out of our system so our bodies can do their job properly. And even children can do it with the right guidance.
When the real root causes are addressed, kids heal really quickly! What was holding them back is gone and they’re propelled forward in their growth and development. So, it’s never too late!
That's why I'm shifting my focus and the way I practice. I still want kids to be able to live their best lives without the unnecessary struggles of chronic illness. I still want kids to go from functional to thriving by addressing the hidden stressors™ most practitioners are missing.
In the coming week I'm going to share more about the shifts I'm making and how you can too!
