Common Childhood Disorders Treated With Holistic Approach

Common Childhood Disorders Treated With Holistic Approach

The CDC estimates approximately 17% (12.5 million) of children and adolescents aged 2 to 19 years are obese, and 11% (6.4 million) of children 4 to 17 years of age have been diagnosed with ADHD. Autism rates place 1 in 68 children as having the condition. Our children are sick, we need to do something about it.

Theories for the alarming rise in childhood disorders vary. One persistent area of concern remains the food we eat. From known culprits like gluten and sugar, to GMOs, to brightly colored chemicals, the food we feed our kids often barely can be called food at all. And it shows up in their physical wellbeing and behavior.

A combination of an elimination diet and energy work can go a long way in alleviating symptoms. Energy work that focuses on clearing blockages and healing the liver and pancreas is especially helpful. This approach is best complimented by a change in diet, where parents are educated on the effects of food on their children, and encouraged to remove suspected culprits.
