Our brain is an amazing organ that controls and regulates absolutely every aspect of our life.
From the way that we deal with stress to the way we enjoy every day of our lives – our brain is working to control and regulate. Amazing. Absolutely amazing. The trouble comes when there is an imbalance in our bodies. As a society we’re quick to jump to a conclusion of needing to change our diet. This may be on the right track, however…
Let’s step back a moment and realize there may be deeper habits that have the ability to impact our entire lives. More importantly as a parent, the ability to impact your child’s brain development.
Have you ever heard of a child who is astounding with numbers?
In fact, they’re so good that all they want to be around are numbers. Even so much that people mean very little to them. Concepts become uninteresting.
Many times in our society this is seen as normal. Though it’s not our place to judge what another human should enjoy or be good at, we’re able to see patterns of development that make a young child struggle all the way through adulthood.
We live with faith
We live with faith that our nervous system (brain and nerves) is sensing our surroundings correctly so we may react in a productive way.
Our brain grows by what it is exposed to and how often. So when a child is exposed to one topic excessively that part of their brain develops and other necessary areas do not.
To keep the science-talk simple think of it this way.
One side of our brain grows whenever we sense details. The other side grows when we sense concepts or big picture ideas.
When one side grows much faster than the other we begin seeing neurological development delays (autism, ADHD, seizures, OCD, etc…).
Expose your children to balance. A balance of activities and experiences. Remember, the key here is to remember that BALANCE MEANS TO NOT FALL OVER. Continuous exposure is what life is about. Learning, growing, experiencing, and loving the journey of growing up until you are 100 years old and realize that you are still growing up.
Give your child new experiences as often as possible.
Try not to feed the exact same daily experiences with your child because brain development depends on a lot of different experiences.
We are all amazingly different and your child’s life will guide them in the direction of what they love to do.
Life 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. And better able to regulate their emotions better. That’s real and a beautiful thing to witness.
