How to heal after months of medicating

heal after medicatingAfter months of medicating your child or years of therapies it can be difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel. In fact, you may ONLY see the roadblocks ahead! 

The struggle is real

Struggles hit us all. That’s the reality.

Who was it that said, “Life isn’t a problem to be solved, it’s a series of events to be experienced.” 

The truth is – we may not react in the best manner possible every time we face a struggle.  That’s okay.  

As challenges hit us we usually want the quickest fix, the easiest answer, and the most common thing our closest friends tell us. That’s usually the answer of medicating your child.  Many times this helps us through the situation but it may not address the root issue or help solve the actual problem our child is facing.

The beautiful part is that your child’s nervous, sensory and immune responses are predictable. 

Habits form everything. Meaning, the way we regularly choose to handle stress mentally, chemically (by medicating) and physically creates our state of health. 

The number one way to empower yourself is to be prepared! Learn management skills and be ready to overcome stress and come out victorious on the other side!

Start from where you are

Sometimes it seems like progress is really slow.  However, think about when you were a teenager. Did you know you would be where you are today? (Don’t laugh too hard!)

When we keep track of where we started it’s easier to see how far we’ve come. This concept is so important in watching your child grow and develop. It’s easy to get caught up in the struggle and not recognize the amazing progress that is taking place along the way. You deserve to see what your family has accomplished!

And keep in mind the universal law of time. Change takes time and when it seems like something should happen instantly it is time to reflect on what led to where you are. TIME. The one thing no one will ever be able to change.

Move forward into adventure

A brain stops growing when we stop living. Take your family out and around town. Vacation when you can. Get dirty and have adventures. 

The more we stimulate our brain with new experiences, the greater the impact we see in our kids and ourselves. If you’re stuck with a level of development in your child then realize it may take them 100 times of repetition when it takes a neurotypical child 10 times to learn. That’s ok. 

Accept it and move through the 100 repetitions. The only way to effectively move forward is by looking out the windshield, not by staring in the rearview mirror. 

We always see amazing results when parents understand this.

Healing happens fastest in forward movement

Working with you is a beautiful thing.

You may notice, as your child gets more and more chiropractic adjustments, they seem to magically be able to handle transitions better. What a beautiful thing to witness.
