Children with Seizures...

Chiropractic, Seizures, La Grange, IL, Chiropractor

When I was 4 1/2 years old, I came down with Bacterial Meningitis and due to the high fevers, I ended up having seizures from the process.

When it comes to children with seizures, the main drug that is recommended to children is Phenobarital.  This is a drug that is the go to drug that children are prescribed.  They even offered this to my mother when I was experiencing seizures.

The side effects to Phenobarbital have a long laundry list.  Its main function is to slow down the functions of the central nervous system.  Sounds like the right thing to do when a seizure is over activity of the brain.  But, my question is, what caused it in the first place?  Why is it there in the first place?  When the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) are slowed down, what else is going to be affected by this?

Even in the picture posted here above shares the story of a 4 year old boy who had seizures all his life.  Why was this happening?

Doctors were recommending cutting a part of his brain out!  Thank God his parents went to a chiropractor.

So, when it comes to treatments for seizures, the unique thing about Chiropractic is, it is not a treatment for symptoms, conditions, illnesses, and diseases.  Then how does it help someone with seizures or other things?

Chiropractic is designed to help improve the overall function of the  body.  It works on improving the organization, regulation, healing and communication of the brain and its environment.  When you can have the brain be more in balance, function better and respond properly to the stimuli that is going on in one’s environment (mental/emotional, chemical, physical), this is how an organism thrives in its environment.

If an organism cannot handle the stress of its environment, it starts to break down.  Overtime, this will result in symptoms, conditions, illnesses and diseases.

Next time it comes to your child’s health or your own, have a look into chiropractic and see how your nervous system is responding to the stress you deal with on a daily basis.  There is a very good chance it will be able to help improve your overall health and allow for you and/or your child to grow and develop the way we all were designed to be: Happy, Healthy, and Vibrant.

Until next time, BE well… LIVE well… The CHOICE is yours…
