How A Mom Of 6 Keeps Her Family Healthy

Enjoy hearing from ihelpmoms.com contributing mom Leah G., mom of 6 and the founder of http://www.socks-shoesnotrequired.com!

I have always known about Chiropractic care, but I was always a skeptic. I had always figured that Chiropractic care was more for whiplash, or hurt backs. I hadn’t really even thought about kids and chiropractors.

Before Steve was a Chiropractor I wouldn’t have ever thought to take my kids to see one. We are a healthy family and rarely at the doctor’s office, and I didn’t understand what difference seeing a Chiropractor could make.

It wasn’t until my son Tim, {4 at the time} woke up with a stiff neck.  After a check up, we found he had Torticollis. There are many different options to help with torticollis, and we decided to take our son to Dr. Rowe, who is an Upper Cervical Chiropractor, and a gentle adjustment to the top bone- the Atlas was all it took.   The pressure was the same as taking a pulse. In less than 20 minutes after the adjustment he was fine. Seeing my child once again a happy boy was all it took for me to be an advocate of Chiropractic Care for all.  It is WAY more than just post accident care!

As a mom of 6 my eyes have been open, seeing all the good Chiropractic care can do. Another time Benji {11 months at the time} woke up on a Saturday night with an ear infection. Listening to a baby scream, and pull at his ears, and seeing that he has a fever of over 100 degrees is heart breaking. My husband got him adjusted by gently adjusted the top bone in his neck the Atlas. I held him and felt his fever go down after the chiropractic adjustment as he laid on my chest. Within an hour he was asleep again, and then woke up the next day the ready to run and play, you would have never known he suffered from an ear infection the night before.

I believe that medication has it’s place, but I think there are healthier ways to heal our bodies and that of our children than always grabbing a prescription, and heading down to the pharmacy. I believe that Chiropractic care is one of those ways that will truly help the body stay healthy in all aspects of our lives

When Steve started Chiropractic school we already had three boys, since then we have had 3 more children. All of our children are now under regular Chiropractic care. Not just for the aches and pains, but seen regularly as a well-visit.Anjali big girl adjusment

I believe that every child should be seen by a Chiropractor, even as soon as within the first week of life. Starting life with a good brain-to-body connection is important for growth and development.

There is a lot of skepticism about Chiropractic Care, I was one. But seeing it up close has shown me that it is a natural and healthy way to care for my children!
