Newborn treatment  Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Recently I have been treating a lot of newborn babies.

For the most part, the children were having problems with colic, excessive spitting up, problems nursing, sleep issues, misshapen heads, torticollis ( head deviated to one side) and other common neonatal problems.

Every one of these children presented with severe strains when I put my hands on them.

What is a strain?

It's a pull in the internal tissues of the body.

When the connective tissue, which is everywhere in the body, is twisted or pulled, the nerves, blood vessels, and lymphatic vessels ( ie. the vessels which suck up all the crud in the body and get rid of it) are unable to function normally.

The child will then get sick, be irritable, have many health problems.

So I take out the strains with very gently osteopathic treatment and the children get well.

I don't try to get the child to calm down or just get rid of the symptom.

I get rid of the reason for the symptom, the problem.

Then the child is well.

It doesn't take very long for this to happen.

If it does, I know that I am missing something important.

I also use homeopathic medicines to help the children if I believe they will be helpful.

The nice thing is that these children often do very well for many years.

Because these underlying problems in their bodies were treated early on, they tend to be a lot healthier than other kids.

There is no greater investment than getting all the problems worked out for the child when they are very young.
