Over the years there have been literally hundreds of children (& babies) brought to our centre by their concerned parent(s). Having often seen many doctors & specialists, parents are sometimes beside themselves with worry (& sleep deprivation).
From chronic middle ear/throat/tonsils/lung infections, to asthma, bowel & digestion problems to eczema & psoriasis, we have seen ALL youngsters respond wonderfully to our nutritional help and guidelines.
We cannot believe that in this day & age that the standard treatment for kids’ illnesses is still anti-biotics without first approaching it with diet.. This is especially the case when most infections are viral, & anti-biotics are known to have no effect on viruses.
By all means resort to drug treatment if nutritional modifications fail, but the sad reality is that the indiscriminate use & abuse of anti-biotics has led to serious health problems worldwide. From encouraging the proliferation of drug- resistant bacteria to the destruction of children’s digestive & immune systems, anti-biotic abuse has taken and is continuing to take, a heavy toll on all of us.
This is now pretty much common practice in the scientific community. Tragically, the damage continues. A few enlightened medical doctors such as Drs Fuhrman, Sultana, Baratoshi, Cook, Ritchie, Mendelsohn & McDougall amongst others, have spoken out about this & promoted dietary change as a first resort in most common children’s illnesses. Yet they are a tiny minority.
All vets investigate what their sick animals are fed, yet it is a sad irony that nutrition is mostly overlooked in standard medical consultations, as if it has nothing to do with the illness.
Babies & children are helpless when it comes to their own health- they are totally dependent on the knowledge & wisdom of their parents and the professionals giving them the advice.
If you are a parent concerned about your family’s health, it might pay huge health dividends to acquaint yourself with the concept of nutritional excellence, & apply these to your family. One hour’s naturopathic consultation is all that is generally needed.
