Every child deserves to live a healthy life. This is a key premise and focus of The 100 Year Lifestyle. The choices you make for them and the decisions you teach them to make for themselves will be their gateway to a healthy or unhealthy life.
The good news is that by teaching them healthy choices, you will immediately help children live healthier. The bad news is that children are being bombarded with chemical, physical and emotional stress from day one. So much so, that this generation of babies may be the first in recent history to see a shorter life expectancy than their parents.
Birth trauma, prescription drugs, non-prescription drugs, and the exponential increase in vaccinations are dangerous. They place babies in a chronic fight or flight, stress reaction that leads to all types of health problems. This assault on immune and nervous systems causes them to fidget, chew on things inappropriately, lose focus, and experience irregular sleep.
The decreasing health of our children is alarming. 1 out of 5 children has some type of learning disability. According to reports done under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), “between 2011–12 and 2017–18, the number of students served increased from 6.4 million to 7.0 million and the percentage served increased from 13 percent of total public school enrollment to 14 percent of total public school enrollment.” These numbers are absolutely unacceptable.
Also, there are millions of prescriptions filled each year for children. 25% of children in the United States are on daily chronic medication. Many of these, such as Ritalin, are in the same category as cocaine and speed, highly addictive and considered to be a gateway drug.
The number of recommended vaccines for children by the time they are 18 years old is now 49 doses of 14 vaccines. In 1989, it was only about 11 doses.
The Difficult Health Questions
Ask yourself, “Are kids healthier now than they were 50 years ago?” They can be. If children were raised using The 100 Year Lifestyle model of FitN2ESS (Neurology, Nutrition, Endurance, Strength and Structure), they would experience a life without limits. They would also optimize the expression of their innate intelligence and potential.
Simple lifestyle changes bring amazing results and focus. As a result, drug use in children would be lower. They would also grow up having faith in the incredible ability of the body to perform and function completely without medication. Their potential would be limitless!
Start by eating whole, organic, nutrient-packed food, getting enough exercise and plenty of rest. Children have a lot of natural energy and not expressing this energy through creative play and physical activity can cause outbursts, stress and feelings of anxiety.
We live our lives based on the function of our nerve system. If it’s clear and there is no interference to it, the Innate Intelligence inside each of us will work properly. The millions of reactions that need to take place in our body every second of our life would flow unimpeded.
In addition, getting regular chiropractic checkups and Lifestyle Care can locate vertebral subluxations in the spine and remove interference to the nervous system, making children more adaptable to the environment.
Children living The 100 Year Lifestyle will live better, more productive lives every day for 80, 90, 100 years and beyond. Contact a 100 Year Lifestyle Licensed Affiliate Chiropractor in your area to learn more.
