There is a growing belief in this country that the current way of dealing with disease isn’t working. Let’s take a look at the typical Doctor visit Experience.
“Your daughter has asthma, food allergies and eczema so here is your inhaler, epi-pen and cortisone cream. I’ll see you in a year, good luck! ”
It seems to me that handing out prescriptions for anything that ails us isn’t getting to the route of the problem. Why aren’t we asking WHY these health issues exist? What isn’t working correctly in our bodies that are causing this response? It’s time our medical community tries to find the cause and find long-term solutions. It’s time to treat the illness, not the symptoms.
We are a nation that is looking for a quick fix or a pill to pop to fix our symptoms. Our children are joining in on the fun and are medicated in staggering numbers. The statistics are frightening. Before you read the stats ask yourself “Do I remember children in my class having food allergies, autism, sensory processing issue or ADHD?” The issues facing this generation of children is frightening. Check out the latest statistics from one of my favorite organizations Epidemic Answers www.epidemicansers.org who is at the forefront of getting the word out on chronic illness in this country.
- Asthma: At least 1 in 8 children, and approximately 1 in 6 African American children
- Allergic Eczema: 1 in 5 children
- Hay Fever (seasonal allergies): 2 to 3 out of every 5 children
- Food Allergies: 1 in 12 children under 4 years of age have a “true” food allergy (IgE mediated). It is estimated that 1 in 3 children (or more) have food intolerances (are sensitive to particular foods)
- Celiac Disease: 1 in 80 children
- Obesity: 1 in 7 children
There is a roadmap to stopping the madness that I want to share. You have read about getting rid of the toxins in your food and in your home. You have remembered to keep your stress down. Now you have another weapon in the fight against childhood illness and that is the proper medical team. There are numerous options you have to help heal your child. Your child may have a yeast overgrowth that is causing sensory issues and ADHD symptoms. Low glutathione could be causing inflammation and food allergies. Regardless of the diagnosis, there are medical tests to find the issues and help find a cure. Teams of specialists are available to help heal a body without the use of life long prescriptions, surgeries or heavy medications.
