Do Children Truly Outgrow Conditions Like Colic, Reflux, and Constipation?

Parents, it’s time to confront an issue that has persisted for too long. Conventional pediatric wisdom often reassures parents that certain childhood conditions will naturally resolve over time. However, this assertion doesn’t always align with reality.

If you’ve spent countless nights tending to a colicky baby, dealing with chronic constipation, battling reflux, or enduring recurring ear infections, it’s crucial to recognize that these problems won’t vanish independently. Likewise, if your child grapples with frequent tantrums, developmental delays, or sleep disturbances, dismissing these struggles as mere phases is not the solution.

As parents, you inherently know when something isn’t right with your child. Despite being advised to wait it out, it’s essential to acknowledge that deeper issues may be at play—something your intuition likely tells you. The underlying science behind these conditions revolves around the central and autonomic nervous system’s function and development, a domain often overlooked by conventional pediatricians but central to the expertise of Neurologically-Focused Pediatric Chiropractors.

Understanding the Impact of Stress on the Nervous System

Whether your child is a newborn or an adolescent, we’ve observed that the neurological mechanisms underlying colic, sensory processing issues, autism, ADHD, anxiety, constipation, and chronic autoimmune ailments share striking similarities.

At the core lies a stressed and subluxated nervous system, perpetually locked in sympathetic dominance or imbalance. Over time, stressors like prenatal distress, birth interventions, early trauma, and toxin exposure disrupt the nervous system’s equilibrium, leading to dysautonomia—a state of dysregulation and imbalance.

Addressing the root cause of these challenges is paramount, rather than merely labeling and referring to various specialists. Pediatric Chiropractors specializing in functional neurology can alleviate the overactive sympathetic response in children with colic, sensory issues, and anxiety. Unlike conventional medicine, our approach prioritizes understanding functional neurology, which governs digestion, immune function, respiratory health, social-emotional regulation, and neurological development.

By focusing on the nervous system, one can address a myriad of issues effectively, including those dismissed as childhood phases. Neglecting to address these issues can lead to chronic autoimmune conditions, allergies, compromised immunity, and behavioral problems that persist into adulthood.

Navigating the Perfect Storm Pathway

Regardless of where your child stands in the perfect storm pathway, it’s crucial to seek clarity regarding their health. Utilizing advanced technology like our INSiGHT Scans can pinpoint and measure stress and subluxation in the nervous system, guiding tailored interventions.

Our Neurologically-Focused approach, coupled with precise adjustments, aims to release stress, lower sympathetic tone, and activate the parasympathetic nervous system and vagus nerve—facilitating natural healing and restoration. Even older children can benefit from such care, as the nervous system retains plasticity despite years of stress.
