Kids need help now more than ever

According to the American Medical Association, more than 25% of children now suffer with chronic health conditions, many which will continue into adulthood. Far fewer children suffer and die from conditions such as hepatitis, chickenpox, meningitis, pneumonia, diarrhea and life-threatening bacterial infections than 50 years ago. Babies are far less likely to die from sudden infant death syndrome. Infant mortality is down. Children are less likely to be hurt or die in accidents of every sort — car crashes, bike accidents, drowning, poisonings or fires. Women are more likely to breast feed; children are less likely to be exposed to leaded paint and gasoline than 20 years ago. The question then becomes,

“Why do so many children have chronic health conditions?”

I believe the answer lies in the interaction of genetics, lifestyle, and nutrition. The medical term Epigenetics explains this interaction. In the body, DNA is able to be expressed through altered triggering mechanisms resulting in changed outcomes. Many chronic conditions respond very well to a functional medicine approach. Our approach is to treat the underlying cause and help the child’s body return to a state of improved function, not just to change symptoms temporarily.
